I was born in 1988, which had some good albums but is weaker than the years surrounding it.

U2 - Rattle & Hum
The Sugarcubes - Life's Too Good
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Tender Prey
R.E.M. - Green
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
Prince - Lovesexy
Metallica - And Justice for All
N.W.A - Straight Outta Compton

I think The Sugarcubes' album is my favorite of that year.

U2, R.E.M., Metallica, Prince all had considerable drop-offs compared to their previous releases here.

That's the best of all you listed.

Like A Virgin is a close second, though.

My birth year (1992) is somewhat eventful but uninteresting to me. Apparently the MP3 format was developed in 1992 though. Yay technology.

Say what? AJFA is one of their greatest! Granted, it's a shame about the production and the way they were treating Newsted, but One, To Live Is To Die, the title track, Blackened?

Like I said, I haven't listened to Let It Be yet, but I have never, ever understood the adoration of Pleased To Meet Me(maybe why I haven't bothered to check out LIB yet). I just don't get the band, so I doubt I'd rank LIB anywhere near the top of 1984. Plus, the chutzpah of using the name of a Beatles record for your record turns me off a bit. It'd be like if some band now named their album The Joshua Tree or Nevermind or something.

And Like A Virgin second? I can get on board with 90s Madonna, Secret and the Ray Of Light album and all that, but LAV, while fun, is nowhere close to Metallica/Queen/U2/Bruce/Van Halen/Prince/Depeche Mode/etc etc for me.

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.
Also I forgot to respond to this the other day, but

1. Good call on Primal Scream, I usually include that album when talking about 91, and I even used Loaded on my last DI list.
2. We both neglected to mention Toad The Wet Sprocket's "Fear", which spawned the hit single "All I Want". I don't know much about that band, but I like the song well enough, so figured I'd mention them.

Yeah, 92 is sort of a valley between the legendary 91 and the also-stacked 93 and 94.

But 92 did give us Automatic For The People, AIC's Dirt, Little Earthquakes, The Cure's Wish, RATM's debut, the Blind Melon debut with "No Rain" on it, Gin Blossoms' New Miserable Experience with "Hey Jealousy" on it, among others. Oh, and Clapton's "Unplugged".

Check Your Head and The Chronic (and a few others that i personally consider classics) came out in 92, and it was also the debut year for Common, Twista, the Pharcyde, Das EFX, and Redman (though 92 did also give us the Insane Clown Posse so it may be a wash).

When I said it was a drop-off, it's only because Master of Puppets is pretty indisputably the greatest metal album ever recorded.

AJFA has some great tracks indeed, though I never liked One. And I did start getting annoyed at Hetfield's vocal tics, like adding "YA!" at the end of each line.

'88 was a damn good year! Being a big VH/DLR fan at the time, they both released albums that year. Also remember that a lot of the stuff that came out in '87 was still popular in '88. Def Leppard released several singles from Hysteria. And you couldn't escape Sweet Child O Mine from GnR in the Summer of '88. '87 to '89 was a pretty solid run in rock, pop, and rap.

I'm listening to the most maddening album to come out in my birth year: Tango in the Night. Is there any Singles to Full Album comparison more disappointing?

It peters out a bit at the end, but otherwise it’s a fairly strong album. Apart from the singles, the Buckingham tracks in particular are very good.

I really do like "Caroline" and "Welcome to the Room...Sara", but otherwise, I'm not sure I agree. For Lindsay, "You and I, Pt. II" and "Family Man" are not favorites of mine. Though I recall a lot of people like the latter.

Yes, Family Man is great. I also really like the title track.

Really the main drawback is the lack of Nicks, but she was so strung out at the time it’s amazing they got Seven Wonders out of her.

Agree on both of these, and for me, I think Say You Will is a better album. I'd rather have no McVie at all than paltry input from Nicks. And while the reunion album may not hit the highs of Everywhere or Little Lies, it's more consistent.

I actually have not heard Say You Will. I'll see if I can get a spin of that in today. Hard to guarantee being a stupidly long 1 hour and 15 minutes

I might have said this before, but The Shins are the only band that I actively dislike but have one song that I love, which is New Slang.

Why do you actively dislike them?

Those first three Shins albums are cornerstones for me. I got into indie pop/rock through Oh Inverted World and it's still one of my favorite albums of all time.

Hearing someone say they actively hate The Shins just hurt me right in the soul.
