Missed a few

For better or worse, this marked the start of gangsta rap descending into self-parody. This album is still great and production-wise, Dre really makes leaps and bounds, pretty much laying the blueprint for The Chronic a year later. Not epoch-making like Straight Outta Compton, and the loss of Ice Cube hurts, but still hard-hitting and awesome.

All the hipsters who love Odd Future need to hear this. Horrorcore before there was a name for it. My Mind's Playing Tricks On Me is a stone classic and 20 years later still powerful as ever.

God, I love the American (also Canadian) alt.-rock scene circa 1989 to 1992. So many great bands, all of them only selling to a snob-audience. I miss the days of elitism in music.

It was actually late 1990, but how great is this?:


According to All-Music: "Sunburn is not just the Blake Babies' best album, it's in many ways the last great college rock album, the album that's the pinnacle of the U.S. indie guitar scene of the late '80s, and the album that exemplifies what 'alternative' meant in those pre-Nevermind days when the term was actually understood to mean something."

Who could forget The Republik in Calgary? What a great venue.... ah, memories...

Haven't heard it yet, but as I've said before, this track is one of my all-time favourite hip hop tunes. As fucking hard a rap song I've ever heard

Them Crooked Vultures. And he drummed with Queens of the Stone Age, along with that metal side project of his (Probot). He's still around as far as drums are concerned.

1991 gave me these. I am forever grateful. Yes, I know they've all been discussed here and are probably the 5 most famous albums released in 91. There's a reason for it.

Yeah, I tend to gravitate toward Breed and Territorial Pissings, at least after I get over that awful Freedom Rock intro. And Lithium.

I should probably check this out. I've heard some of their stuff - mostly God Bless the Blake Babies, which may not be a fair reference - but I tend to like it.

I just can't get excited about Nirvana, no matter how hard I try (and I first heard them, yes, in 1991). I was in Seattle last month and had Cobain on my mind, so when I got home I decided to read Heavier Than Heaven, a decent biography of him. It seems to confirm my opinion of Cobain as a melodically-talented total loser. There's something very depressing about their music -- not depressing as in dark and life-affirming, but depressing as in so depressed I feel I need a shower after hearing it.

(But I rather enjoy "Rape Me" and "All Apologies".)

September marks the 20th Anniversary of the Guns N Roses albums Use Your Illusion I and II. Many said it was overrated. Many said it was underrated. Many loved it just the way that it was. (That's me! ) A damn shame they weren't able to follow it up with a new album of original material in a timely fashion. Curious to see if they'll get in Jann Wenner's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame now that they've been nominated for 2012.

Fuck yeah.

Along with Dive and Aneurysm, the trio of most underrated Nirvana songs.

Of course "underrated" = in the mainstream. Not in most 'good taste' circles.

Loving it just the way it was = you think there's no filler?

Too much good material for one album, but it should had been two shorter albums à la Being There.
