Some awesome albums on that list (Pablo Honey, In Utero, Siamese Dream) but damn does Janet Jackson suck.
 
2013-01-02 09:05:33 PM  
Many of those weren't bad.  But I made it all the way through 2012 without once thinking of Candlebox, and only made it one and three-quarter days through 2013.  Ominous.
 
2013-01-02 09:23:49 PM  
I have not, nor will I, ever had any of those albums in my collection.
 
2013-01-02 09:25:48 PM  
And in five more years, some lucky junior high students will unearth a time capsule in class and then own all these on cassette.
 
2013-01-02 09:29:31 PM  
I had 3 of those albums.

I don't have any of them, but nothing wrong with In Utero.

Eesh, the list of albums that are 10 years old is way worse.  I see So Long Astoria and nothing else from the studio albums.

I have had, and will again have many of those albums in my collection.

Hey look, a list of bands I've actually heard of.
 
2013-01-02 09:57:59 PM  
Holy crap...I don't know why I remember this, but I know exactly where I was when I first heard She Don't Use Jelly by The Flaming Lips. Not my favorite song of theirs, and they aren't my favorite band, but for some reason I got a kick out of that song when it was first played on the radio.

I never owned any of their albums, but Feed the Tree by Belly is another song that reminds me that there was some really good music back in the first half of the '90s.

Ms. Jackson if you're nasty.

- I actually get a kick out of her.

The list is missing New Order's Republic and Pet Shop Boys' Very. Tomorrow's CD pile will correct that oversight.

My freshman and sophomore year of high school. Took a radio class for my sophomore year and wound up playing damn near everything on that list. It's fun to see where the bands/musicians went over the ensuing 20 years. Also brings back a crapton of memories. My grandmother died early the next year and I recall listening to The Cranberries on the ride in to her funeral, "Linger" still gets me misty eyed and choked up to this day.

Probably in 1993, I got a free cassette sampler of Sheryl Crow's music. She was non-famous enough to need publicity. I think the tracks were from, or ended up on, Tuesday Night Music Club.

TheXerox: It's fun to see where the bands/musicians went over the ensuing 20 years. Also brings back a crapton of memories.


My thoughts, exactly. There were several popular groups from that time period(Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgarden) that I couldn't stand, but I like hearing them today, just for the nostalgia factor. And other bands, that I liked back then, you couldn't pay me to listen to the crap they put out today(looking at you RHCP - should've quit recording after Mother's Milk, although, BSSM had a couple of decent songs).

I love hearing songs from the early '90s that I haven't heard since they were radio staples. Most of the songs didn't mean much to me back then, they were just the background noise of my daily life at college, work and when I was out with friends. Now, they bring back waves of nostalgia.

But I still don't like Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots or Soundgarden. They just suck.

They're not missing...

I owned way too many of those albums. Which isn't surprising considering I'm 36 years old.
 
2013-01-02 11:48:21 PM  
God there is some good music on there...

No wonder I didn't get on the Tool band back then, I was 8 freaking years old when it came out. Wouldn't have been able to convince my mom to buy it.

/Sober FTW!

I remember buying several of these at a *gasp* record store...
 
2013-01-02 11:55:31 PM  
I had (and still have) 9 of the albums.
 
2013-01-02 11:56:08 PM  
Nice to see a list of bands I actually know. Kind of on a nostaglic side  I got stoned for the first time to Undertow when it first came out and got laid the first time to the Cranberries so yeah feeling a little sappy tonight.

Heh. I can remember calling the local record shop at college asking if they had Vs. in stock, like 3 weeks before it was to be released. MTV kept talking about it and I was convinced it must be out.

Resin33: I owned way too many of those albums. Which isn't surprising considering I'm 36 years old.


I do but they all came out when I was in elementary school.  I think the BMG music club racket I signed up for a few year after that may have been to blame for some of the more questionable choices (thankfully I somehow got out of that without dropping more than a dollar or whatever the $X for Y CDs deal was).  The better ones were mostly cause I had three pretty awesome used record stores biking distance from my house.

Blur
Sheryl Crow (BMG)
Salt n Peppa (might have been a gift from my cousin)
I think I had the cassette single of Whoop There It Is
Cranberries (BMG)
Flaming Lips (but bought it several years after it came out)
Pearl Jam (BMG)
Mariah Carey (which I ended up giving to my friend's boyfriend in HS; he came out of the closet in college) (BMG)
Breeders (bought later when I discovered the Pixies in HS)
Counting Crows  (BMG)
Radiohead (BMG or Used Record Shop, can't remember)
Nirvana (BMG)
Bjork (bought in HS)

You're doing yourself a disservice. There's some really good music on that list.
 
2013-01-03 12:19:28 AM  
...and you can get your nostalgia downloaded to your ipod if you go on itunes and you head directly to 90s rock AKA 'Dad Rock'.

Took me April until I saw one with White Stripes. Then Weird Al in May and then I got depressed and stopped in August.
 
2013-01-03 12:25:31 AM  
This list reminds me how bitter I became toward popular music in the 90s. The vast majority is throw-away talentless crap.

Who let the dogs out?

No one's humping the Liz Phair album on there? Listened to it for the first time in about a decade a few months ago, and it holds up magnificently.

That Counting Crows album was a panty-dropper for a good 10 years after it came out.
In fact, their music might explain how that goofy dread-locked guy pulled both Christina Applegate and Jennifer Aniston during their apex of hotness.

Damn. Well, I would hate on him if his music didn't get a few of my college conquests in the mood.
 
2013-01-03 12:54:43 AM

That's old? Heck, that's newer than most of the stuff I hear on local radio..

Sarah McLachlan, "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" - First album of hers that I bought, and perhaps the best.
 
2013-01-03 01:00:55 AM  
Most of those songs sound like they're being played back through a layer of mud.

F'king 90s recording/mixing.

To be fair, though, I think a lot of the bands wanted to sound like mush for some reason.

/ It's probably Nirvana's fault.

Whoomp there it is for me will forever be associated with news coverage of the reaction when the Braves won the pennant that year:

White shrieky voiced reporter lady: Ahahaha so much excitement here downtown! Excuse me maam, what do you think of the Braves winning the pennant?"
Black lady: *Unintelligible*--whoomp there it is!
White reporter lady: And you sir?
Black guy: Whoomp there it is!
White shrieky voiced reporter lady: Ahahaha So there you go Gary! Whoomp there it is! Ahahahaha back to you!
Gary: Whoomp there it is! Hah, Thanks Nancy!
 
2013-01-03 01:27:37 AM  
If your album collection doesn't include Afghan Whigs "Gentleman", you and I probably wouldn't get along. I just saw their final show on NYE. Most underrated rock band of the last 25 years, and also among the best.

I lost my virginity to Peter Gabriel's "Big Time". What does that say about me?
 
2013-01-03 01:35:39 AM  
Its weird to think that a Snoop Dog album is now twice as old as a Led Zeppelin album was when said Snoop Dog album was released.
 
2013-01-03 01:57:02 AM  
No love for KMFDM - Angst? Probably their best album? Released in 93 as well. Dang they been a round a while.
