(in order of release date)



Queen - Innuendo(the last album before Freddie's death - the title track is one of my favorite tracks of theirs, period) - 2/4(30 years to the day today)

REM - Out Of Time - 3/12

Temple Of The Dog - Self-Titled - 4/16

Smashing Pumpkins - Gish - 5/28

Seal - Self-titled debut(this is the one with "Crazy" on it) - 6/11

Van Halen - For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge(maybe their last semi-relevant album, "Right Now" was big, and 316 is great little Eddie solo) - 6/18

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Into The Great Wide Open - 7/2

Metallica - Black Album - 8/12

Pearl Jam - Ten - 8/27

GnR - Use Your Illusions I&II - 9/17

Nirvana - Nevermind - 9/24

RHCP - BloodSugarSexMagik - 9/24

Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger - 9/24

My Bloody Valentine - Loveless - 11/4

U2 - Achtung Baby - 11/18

Michael Jackson - Dangerous - 11/26(Was hesitant to include this one - are we still allowed to talk about him or has he been cancelled altogether? This was the last classic album of his, which spawned a couple of huge singles in "Black Or White" and "Remember The Time")



And that doesn't include hip-hop stuff like Public Enemy's "Apocalypse 91" or Tupac's debut.


Add Spiderland, Low End Theory, Massive Attack’s Blue Lines, and Takk Takk’s Laughing Stock to the list.

Glad you liked it! You and a few other people were specifically who I was posting that for

Cypress Hill's self-titled debut, Primal Scream's Screamadelica, Ice Cube's Death Certificate, Ice-T's Original Gangster, Bonnie Raitt's Luck of the Draw, Lenny Kravitz's Mama Said, De La Soul is Dead, The KLF's The White Room, Prince's Diamonds and Pearls, Crowded House's Woodface, Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend, The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Underworld, Teenage Fanclub's Bandwagonesque, Pixies's Trompe le Monde, Dinosaur Jr's Green Mind, Saint Etienne's Foxbase Alpha, Hole's Pretty on the Inside, Electronic's self-titled, EMF's Schubert Dip, Throwing Muses's The Real Ramona (something from here was on my most-recent DI submission), Sting's The Soul Cages, Van Morrison's Hymns to the Silence, Superchunk's No Pocky For Kitty, Slowdive's Just For A Day.

And there were also some prominent popular albums that I didn't care about but certainly make the year even busier: Bryan Adams, Paula Abdul, Genesis, Jesus Jones, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Color Me Badd, Naughty By Nature, Skid Row, Mr. Big, Roxette, Mariah Carey, P.M. Dawn, Ozzy Osbourne, Boyz II Men.


Stacked, to say the least.

No More Tears! Great song! Great album! With the 90's in full gear by '91, it seemed like every major artist represented.

I really love some of the lyrics in that crescendo/outro.

"Went looking for a creation myth
Ended up with a pair of cracked lips"

"Either way, we're not alone
I'll find a new place to be from
A haunted house with a picket fence
To float around and ghost my friends"

She's such a wonderful lyricist.

It's the weakest of the three, imo, but that hardly means anything. All three are great!

Looks like Hayley Williams released a surprise album this week, a follow up to last year's Petals for Armor.

I'm listening to Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water. Sorry to offend, but this is a fucking great album, pretty much from start to finish.

I think it's contextual, it was one of my formative albums, so I can't divorce it from that. So I can't see you loving it, but I hope you can see the merit.

This doesn't happen a lot to me, but I just came across an instrumental song that makes me want to build a whole DI list around it. I won't post it in case I do use it in a hypothetical DI, but I really love these random discoveries.

That was my situation with "He Loved Him Madly" by Miles Davis.

A 33-minute piece definitely poses some challenges!

Well I just heard the first album of 2021 that I really enjoyed: Before Sunrise by Nana Yamato. I'm not usually huge on bedroom pop, but this one has charms all over the place and just enough off-kilter flourishes to keep it from becoming background music.

I knew Todd Rundgren produced an album for Hall and Oates in the 70s but holy shit they really just said "fuck it, you make the album and we'll stand over here"





Love this shit, as I love both acts, just think it's funny how hard Todd dominated the album. It turns into Daryl Hall singing Utopia a few times.

Imagine being alive at that time listening to all those albums while also drinking Crystal Pepsi and playing Street Fighter 2 for the first time. Our existence probably peaked that year.

That was a god year for hip-hip. Tribe Called Quest released Low End Theory that year.

Plus, the birth of one artist now known as Jerry Dunk.
