Just found this :o

IT was intense! I must say I'll come back to check many of these albums from the 60-70.
I like the fact that the 80-90 will be less cool :D I think you made a good point, when you listen to stuff you grew with, it is very hard to neglect feelings. I can picture myself ranking Roxette pretty high but because they were the first musical act I fell in love with. Maybe I do believe today other acts are better, but I cannot just shut down my memories and probably Joyride would be a top 3, even top 1, in my 1991 list.

I am loving this and will check it reguularly! Thanks for such a job

1990
10. Madonna - I'm Breathless
8. Whitney Houston - I'm Your Baby Tonight
6. Mariah Carey - Mariah Carey

epic. I would rank these albums like this too. I obtained my Mariah copy in the late 1990's.

1991
11. Mariah Carey - Emotions
4. Michael Jackson - Dangerous
2. Nirvana - Nevermind

Emotions is sooo overlooked, thank you for giving it a shout-out. It's such a wonderful little gentle album with her best music on it. Dangerous is a masterpiece and Nirvana truly changed music forever with that legendary album.

1992
12. Bruce Springsteen - Human Touch
10. Whitney Houston/Soundtrack - The Bodyguard
4. Madonna - Erotica

Can I just say that I may have played The Bodyguard 1 million times or more. I have never been more addicted. I recorded the songs from radio to cassette in 1992. Bruce is my soulmate. Erotica is underrated among her catalogue.

1993:
4. Nirvana - In Utero
2. Janet Jackson - janet.

Again, it's Nirvana and a diva for me. My love for Nirvana started in like 2000. Janet, however, was the biggest R&B star on the planet in 1993 with that album which is a classic.

1994
11. Cranberries - No Need To Argue
7. Blur - Parklife
6. TLC - Crazysexycool
5. Madonna - Bedtime Stories
4. Pearl Jam - Vitalogy

Now we're talking. How can somebody who loves Mariah, be a Nirvana and Pearl Jam mega stan? Well, I was born this way, I guess. Love Peal Jam. Eddie Vedder is brilliant. Blur made huge headlines in my world last year. TLC are my favourite girl band ever. CSC is a masterpiece. Cranberries slayed MTV in Germany in 1994/1995 with that album.

LOL at Oasis' best album being beat by Blur's probably worst (or my least fave anyway!). :lol: I'm expecting the S/T and 13 to do rather good here too. ;)

Post is the album that connected me to Bjork so it's nice to see it here. True masterpiece! Also nice albums from Mariah, Alanis and Radiohead.

yasss, the 90s lists! I will follow these more as I'm more familiar. and I will probably check out some albums I've known about for long but neglected

really good lists. obviously glad about Tori appearing here, also REM (only know Out of Time, Automatic and Monster, which might appear later, from their 90s stuff), Kate's The Red Shoes even though it has some misses etc etc. No Jewel or Liz Phair? :(

1996

4. Marilyn Manson - Anitichrist Superstar

(I really like the first 3 MM albums) but this one was so conflictive and sometimes controversial

1997

15. U2 - Pop (some songs were good I had this album, they should have never named it Pop)
7. Mariah Carey - Butterfly (Mariah losing her clothes xD was good to see)
3. Janet Jackson - The Velvet Rope (Janet´s Struggles)

I agree. Too many people did not get the irony with the Discotheque video and just took it serious. It was meant to be funny but people expect Bono to be serious 24/7

Well Radiohead (I actually think they are excruciatingly overrated and can name what I like post-Kid A on one hand, I do however like their 90s work) and Bjork IMO were making some of their best work at this point. With Yoko, I know how divisive she was, but I thought Rising was a really strong "comeback" album for her and set the stage for the latter stage of her career

I think its a bummer that the second disc never got a standalone release like the Greatest Hits disc did. I think it never quite got its due because a lot of people frankly never checked it out since they didn't want to pay double the price when they already had all the hits.

Jewel will show up a couple times, Pieces missed because there were so many albums that year I loved more. Liz I've always wanted to check further but never have

Another great year. Diva is a pop gem, Annie really delivered there. BOdyguard as a whole is not that strong imo, but it was indeed a highlight of the year. Erotica is great. TOri would rank higher in my world.

Dolores O'RIordan's voice will always represent mid 90s life for me, I was 14/15 yo and those songs were touching. BLur was everywhere here in argentina back then, and deservedly. POrtishead was the BEST, I agree

Garbage was the best discovery, loved that album. Smashing was also intense and a must. I love JLP, perfect album imo, but Radiohead The Bends is, imo, probably the best 90s album. Great selection.

Fiona was so powerful, her voice, her lips, just couldnt resist. Love it. GLoria was fantastic to... if I could reeeeeeeeeach higheeeer
I would discover Tori in 1998, but that album gave me life when I finally got it. Intense,

Another great year. I think my fav of all. I was 17, finishing high school, and music was a very important part of my life. BUtterfly made me a lamb, Bjork finally conquered me with HUnter, DAvid BOwie blew my mind, RAdiohead came back strong, JAnet delivered a masterpiece, Erykah showed me a whole new side of R&B and U2 woke up (I just love Wake Up Dead Man)
