Yield, by Pearl Jam. It is my firm belief that had Pearl Jam decided to play the mainstream game (i.e. videos, interviews, etc.) they would be by far the biggest American band in terms of both popularity and record sales. Yield was an AWESOME album from start to finish that never got the attention it deserved.

No Code, Pearl Jam
Stunning in both its emotional and musical ranges, it sold poorly but mostly got good reviews. Of all Pearl Jam albums, people seem to have heard of this one the least. U2 could do a beautiful cover of "Around the Bend," the last song on the CD.

Is This Desire?, PJ Harvey
Released to mixed reviews after her stunning To Bring You My Love and her experimental Dance Hall at Louse Point with John Parrish (?). Her poetry on this album is among the best she has ever written, and it's a female-narrative concept album that was several years ahead of Tori Amos's Strange Little Girls.

Our Time in Eden, 10,000 Maniacs
No one cares about 10,000 Maniacs anymore, and over and over I saw this CD omitted from "Best of the '90s" lists. Absolutely inexcusable. Natalie Merchant's lyrics were never quite the same after this album, and the only place they were as good was on 1989's In My Tribe. It's a beautiful, tenuous, emotional record that contains most of the great work the Maniacs ever did.

I agree with Yield. Im not a huge PJ fan anymore, but I used to be.

Also anything the Flaming Lips did. I thought they were great. They only ever really had one mediocre hit here, with Vaseline, which I thought was such a shame.

I think From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah was also a very good album. Like PJ, I really went off Nirvana after all the hype got too much, but I think it was still very good.

And of course there is 16 Stone. I think its kinda sad that others dont get the same satisfaction I do out of listening to Bush. In many ways I love them more than U2. U2 however are stayers, I have loved them for so long, its like a habit. With Bush though, The Science Of Things was a bit of a flop, I think they can really make a mark if they go all out for the next and make it even better than their 2 biggest which are Razorblade Suitcase and 16 Stone.

And erm I dont know how to say this but Powderfinger. I may not like their new stuff, but I know what they are capable of, and if they can take Aus by storm, then its only common sense that a serious go should have been made with Double Allergic definately, and Internationalist if it was released in the 90's.

Im sure there's heaps more, but thats all I can think of.

This is the theater cat coming out in me but I really feel as though the RENT score and soundtrack captured the struggle of youth and coming of age in the late 90's.

Don't you mean are great? As far as I know they are working on their next album...maybe I'm misinformed?

And it is a shame that "She Don't Use Jelly," which is a fun but very mediocre song by all accounts, has been their only hit song (and a fluke hit song at that) because they have some very stirring music.

Oops, sorry! yes they ARE great. Shows how much I know, I even got the title wrong I got the Clouds Taste Metallic album years and years ago, and thought it was fantastic. Then it got a massive scratch on it, and I never replaced it.

I havent really heard much from them since, though they obviously still record and stuff.

Ok I'd agree with that, but there is NO WAY you can say that "Rent" was ever underappreciated. I mean how many Tonys did it win (including Jonathan Larson's post humous Tony.) Besides, what theater kid do you know who DOESN'T own it. Hell I own the soundtrack, the "Bible" and the firggen best of Rent (for long trips when you can't bring the CDs.) So yeah I can't say I second you there.

ALL KMFDM records weren't very successfull here, though they're a German band. Believe it or not, but it's very hard to find a record in the stores around. I was very happy to find "Angst" one day.

And I'd say Blur - Parklife. At least it wasn't successfull in Germany
