Second Toughest in the Infants is fucking great, but it had If You're Feeling Sinister and Odelay to contend with.

I have meant to give that a go.

My high ratings for 1996 at present are a bunch of decent albums that don't quite cross over to greatness:

The Chills - Sunburnt
Incredible Expanding Mindfuck - Incredible Expanding Mindfuck
Jimmy Eat World - Static Prevails
Katatonia - Brave Murder Day
Manic Street Preachers - Everything Must Go
Opeth - Morningrise
Orphaned Land - El Norra Alila
Porcupine Tree - Signify (which perhaps should be my #1 for the year, because the great tracks on that album are really, really great even if the whole product is a bit patchy)
Sebadoh - Harmacy
Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants

What, I missed Odelay??

So basically 1996 was the best year in music ever.

I second cobl04 here. DJ Shadow's Endtroducing....(1996) was a decent album. Even though it's almost entirely comprised of sampled music, he does do an adequate job piecing together various bits from his frequent record store jaunts. I saw DJ Shadow as the opener for The Chemical Brothers in 1999 and was impressed.

Quality list and I was surprised by your inclusion of Muse - Origin Of Symmetry. It really seems to be an underrated album that is only listened to by the Muse faithful. What do you think of the new Noel Gallagher - Chasing Yesterday?

I like Chasing Yesterday, but the debut is better.

Listened to Amnesiac. Enjoyed it, but it kinda peaked, for me, at the first track. It's pleasant straight through, but nothing jumped out as of yet. I liked it more on first listen than I did Kid A, though.

The only conversation in B&C that happens more frequently than the merits of Amnesiac is Laz and LM talking about how much they love Steely Dan.

Speaking of Steely Dan, What is everyone's opinion of Donald Fagen's excellent 1982 album - The Nighfly?

It's very good, arguably more consistent than Gaucho. And it has two legit classics in I.G.Y. and New Frontier, maybe a third. But I think I prefer Kamakiriad, which may be partially due to it having an actual Becker/Fagen song which means it's the only Steely Dan track of the 90s.

Mezzanine is a hell of an album from 98 as well. I could have gone with that one as my choice from that year.
