    also wanna put in mentions for Stereolab's Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements, Autechre's Incunabula, Polygon Window's (Surfing on Sinewaves), Souls of Mischief's 93 Til Infinity, and Bjork's Debut.
  • As it stands for me right now:

    1. Liz Phair - Exile in Guyville
    2. A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders
    3. Slowdive - Souvlaki
    4. Red House Painters - Red House Painters I
    5. Bjork- Debut

    HM: Stereolab, Nirvana, Jamiroquai, Wu-Tang, Snoop Dogg, Yo La Tengo & PJ Harvey.

    I want to hopefully get to: Tindersticks, Dead Can Dance, Mazzy Star & Flaming Lips among others.
  • Stereolab and Autechre would probably make my list. Vampire Rodents' Lullaby Land obviously too.

    Lanegan's Whiskey and Mercury Rev's Boces are pretty great too. Mazzy Star, Lida Husik and Lycia releases from this year would be up there too.

  • Reachin' by Digable Planets deserves a mention too, I think. Less celebrated than Blowout Comb, but I couldn't choose between them myself. 

    93 til Infinity, 36 Chambers AND Reachin = Three top-tier hip-hop albums that are presently topping my 93 list.

    Gonna check out Doggystyle too.
  • this is pretty great

  • This is what I have so far. I still have quite a bit more to listen to.

    3. Snoop Doggy Dog - Doggystyle

    4. Nirvana - In Utero

    5. John Williams - Schindler’s List OST 

    1. Slowdive - Souvlaki

    2. A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders  

    3. Depeche Mode - Songs of Faith and Devotion

    5. John Williams - Jurassic Park OST

    also shout out to Primus' Pork Soda.

    They may be the fathers of nu-metal, but their weird silly mix of 90's alt rock, grungey metal and funk is fun, and Pork Soda is a nice little dark record.
    Bob in particular is a great song.
  • Oh, I forgot that one. Pork Soda is my favorite Primus album.
  • KRS One return of the boom bap.
  • bozo in 1993:
    1. Melvins - Houdini (9/10)
    2. Earth - Earth 2 : Special Low Frequency Edition (9/10)
    3. Darkthrone - Under a Funeral Moon (8/10)
    4. Eyehategod - Take As Needed for Pain (8/10)
    5. Carcass - Heartwork (8/10)

    probably should listen to some pop music lmao
  • fuck pop
  • The only one I haven't heard is the Darkthrone album.
  • Honestly, I should probably just carve 1993 into my fucking arm because somehow all of these albums came out that year.

  • '93 til infinity and Doggystyle are pretty great too. 
  • and listen to Icky Mettle you assholes, it's one of the best albums ever and like 5 people care about it.
  • @Kyle Archers of Loaf are pretty rad, I've heard Icky Mettle, but I have to say it's been a long time since I've heard it.

    randomly came across this tonight, and holy shit this band seems incredibly rad and original.
  • i think there's a brand of lackadaisical performance that exists in the vacuum of the 90s that keeps me from enjoying some shit
  • yo pavement is one of my favorite bands so I'm clearly into imperfect performances.
  • that's a prime example, I like Pavement but something about that approach I can only get into to a certain extent for some reason. I mean the earliest music I got into was punk rock so I'm naturally inclined for more energetic shit i guess

    Has anyone besides me heard "Exile in Guyville"? I've been obsessed with it these past couple of months. It's extremely 90's indie to the point it might sound ever so slightly dated to some, but the songs are fucking masterful. Hooks galore.

  • Exile in Guyville is such a fun album. I think anyone who likes guys will find something to relate with there, and MOST people who aren't attracted to guys will too. 
  • I tried that album recently and I didn't really get it. I'll probably give it another shot soon.
  • The year before Britpop broke out thanks to Gallaghers. I did enjoy Blur's For Tomorrow.
