You made a long list with that much forgettable bullshit on it and you forgot this?



Only one of the best hip hop debuts of all-time by one of the best and most influential hip hop artists of all-time. Nothin much.

You listed Ratcat? And why are some bolded and others not? I can't detect any useful links between them..

"and to think in 5 years time (2016) there wont be CDs anymore"

I don't know, I think they'll still be around, because people will still buy the format they want, I don't see the line being drawn just yet by the major labels...

Who the fuck puts De La Soul Is Dead in bold but doesn't do the same for The Low End Theory?

Don't forget MJ's last release before his fall from grace(Sorry, Laz, I had to mention it):


And I love how everyone is pretending not to notice the glaring omission of that most legendary of legendary 1991 releases(even if it's not the best), which celebrates it's 20th anniversary today. :wink:

bono_212 09-24-2011 02:27 PM

:lol:, I didn't even notice it was missing, but I did only make a quick scan of the list.

I'm going to be frank and say that only two or three of the albums mentioned thus far (that I have heard) seem to have held up very well: AB, Loveless, and perhaps Blue Lines. Then again, I am not the biggest fan of 90s music.

I wasn't either until about a year and a half ago when I made a concerted effort to hear "good stuff" from the decade. It's still not my favorite, but there's a lot there for me to now love. Though to be honest, 91...not my favorite.

No Ozzy on this list? :tsk:

Laughing Stock still sounds incredible. It could be released today and would fit in great amongst the post-rock it influenced.

And what do you mean you don't like "90s music?" I used to say I disliked 80s music and a month of searching convinced me that pinning one decade down as weaker than another is a poor way of approaching music. "Well, I know this album is supposedly amazing and all, but that whole decade of music must have colored it somehow...I'll pass."

bono_212 09-24-2011 03:29 PM

Anything from that year not on the list already that I really like would probably be a few film scores (Beauty and the Beast and Hook :uhoh: ) Distant Plastic Trees by The Magnetic Fields, Chorus by Erasure, Whirpool by Chapterhouse and maybe Electronic's self-titled.

As far as I am concerned, best year for music ever.
