In spirit of all the recent "Your Favorite..." threads in this section, I was thinking we could make lists of our top albums from the 90's. I've been wanting to make one on my own just to see what I could come up with, and I'd like to see what everyone else liked from that time period. I'm sure we'll share some favorites, but we might turn each other on to some "new" old stuff. So, if you want to, make a list between 20-30 albums long, and then at the end of this week we can all post them. Sound good?

Sorry, that's not acceptable. Only 1990-1999 releases.


Are you going to make a Top 20/30 list? It doesn't look like many are interested in doing it so far.

Heck yeah. Good call. I couldn't put them on my list because I like "All Hands..." and "The Hot Rock" so much more. But then I think The Hot Rock came out in '99... Anywho, SK is certainly on my "top-3 most important modern rock bands" list (alongside Nirvana and Radiohead).

Indeed, 1989. My bad. It's still on the list, because NWA must be on the list and while Niggaz4Life was a good album, too, it has nothing on ...Compton.
