Different strokes for different folks. Don't like it, don't listen to it, but you are missing out.

Attempting and failing to complete this exercise has led me to the revelation that I've never listened to a single album released in the year 1998.

A Headache In A Suitcase I imagine? I must say, your list Lazarus makes for excellent reading. 1973, 1975, 1986, and 1987 were disturbingly good years for music. I was torn trying to pick just one album as at least 2-3 other stellar releases could have been chosen. Cheers.

Black Star - Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star (hip-hop)
Eels - Electro-Shock Blues (indie pop, singer/songwriter)
Massive Attack - Mezzanine (trip-hop)
Silver Jews - American Water (indie folk)
Elliott Smith - XO (indie pop, singer/songwriter)
Tortoise - TNT (post-rock, jazz)
The Afghan Whigs - 1965 (alt rock, soul)

It wasn't a great year, but there are plenty of worthwhile albums in there.

I agree with you about 1998. It's probably my least favorite year for music ever. That twelve months we were confronted with boy bands, gangster rap, wannabe Seattle grunge, Nu-Metal and Lilith Fair female acts.

As far 1998 goes, I personally own just 17 albums. That is a very small number when comparing that count against other years which are 30-50+.

1998:

Madonna - Ray Of Light

Massive Attack - Mezzanine

Air - Moon Safari

Pulp - This Is Hardcore

Pearl Jam - Yield

Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing

Beck - Mutations

David Gray - White Ladder

Garbage - Version 2.0

Smashing Pumpkins - Adore

Manic Street Preachers - This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours

Hole - Celebrity Skin

Tori Amos - From The Choirgirl Hotel

PJ Harvey - Is This Desire?

R.E.M. - Up

Sloan - Navy Blues

The Tragically Hip - Phantom Power

Rancid's Life Won't Wait was pretty close to taking 1998 for me. Also Liz Phair's White Chocolate Space Egg.

Especially when you listed Van Halen's OU812 as worth listening to.

Good call on Rancid. Life Won't Wait was a worthy successor to ...And Out Come The Wolves. I believe I missed that one when tallying up my 1998 releases. Thanks
