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.

And in five more years, some lucky junior high students will unearth a time capsule in class and then own all these on cassette.

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.

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.

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)

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.

As an 80's kid, right there with you. 1989 was the last year when top 40 was not hip hop, rap and grunge. Oh how I hated seattle rock, and still do. The early 90s was when it became fashionable for young talentless male vocalists to sing off key and badly on purpose, and any group of kids with a garage and a stereo set could churn out poorly produced, angsty rubbish and get a recording contract.

FTA: All of these records came out in 1993, which was a damn good year for music.

Are you serious? I can't imagine a more festering pile of shiat, for the most part.

There was some really good music that came out that year. Music Box was probably Mariah Carey's best CD. I remember MTV and the radio censored Gin and Juice. Instad of 'smoking endo' it was 'smokin' smokin'. I got a few of those CDs from ripping off Columbia House. Damnit, the Columbia House theme song is in my mind.

Sarah McLachlan, yes. Tool's Undertow, yes.
Angra - 'Angels Cry'. Power metal from Brazil, so no surprise it's not on the web list. Didn't buy it until much, much more recently.
Genesis - 'The Way We Walk Vol. 2: The Longs'. I certainly enjoyed it back then, don't listen to it much at all anymore. Live album, with most songs over 10 min. long.

wow, i didn't even make it all the way thru 2012 without seeing candlebox in concert! ok, it's the ONLY time i've seen them live, and while they sounded good, they only played 4 or 5 songs and not "YOU"...so that was weird! (bfd fest, dallas).

My wife and I were just talking about this one--yeah, it's 20 years old too. Great album but the critics and fans at the time wanted "Bandwagonesque II", and Teenage Fanclub was never quite the same even though they still had yet to release their best and most popular album.

Sugar's Beaster belongs on the list.

But for my relevance, because I was more into games then music,....Doom came out 20 years ago....as well as Xwing, Simcity 2000, Sam and Max Hit the Road, and Day of the Tentacle

harlock: neilbradley: This list reminds me how bitter I became toward popular music in the 90s. The vast majority is throw-away talentless crap.

As an 80's kid, right there with you. 1989 was the last year when top 40 was not hip hop, rap and grunge. Oh how I hated seattle rock, and still do. The early 90s was when it became fashionable for young talentless male vocalists to sing off key and badly on purpose, and any group of kids with a garage and a stereo set could churn out poorly produced, angsty rubbish and get a recording contract.

FTA: All of these records came out in 1993, which was a damn good year for music.

Are you serious? I can't imagine a more festering pile of shiat, for the most part.


No need to get your sequined, skin-tight leather pants in a knot, gramps.

Ok....now I'm feeling REALLY old.

My first Stereolab purchase was the "Jenny Ondioline" single from that album. Since then, I've become a bit of a completist in collecting their discography, which is a bit of a challenge.

No. Nobody likes mainstream '80s music except people your age. While most mainstream music from any era is garbage, I can put up with '60s, '70s, and early '90s, but the '80s can go die in a fire.

See, I feel that way about anything past 1994. Presidents of the United States, 7 MARY 7, Live, Space Hog, that farking orange haired idiot singing about tangerines or whatever, on and on with shiatty crybaby crap, trying to copy what they thought was grunge.

The best of the last 20 years is worse than the worst of the 80's.

I went to High School in the late 80's and can confirm ( at least in my humble opinion) that with a few exceptions ( eg. the Pixies) the music was indeed, absolute shiat....

Own 8 of them in full, have many other tracks from the rest. Still listen to Siamese Dream & August and Everything After (suck it haters, Anna Begins, Sullivan Street, A Murder of One are all excellent)

janet. - one of my first purchases, didn't appreciate how filthy it was lyrically until later - a few damn good setting the mood tracks

Oh hell to the yes. Such a great band.

Did a quick check and unfortunately Compulsion released "Comforter" in 1994, could have sworn it was earlier.

Ahh, I was hoping Paw was long gone and forgotten. Met them once, hanging out in a record store in Overland Park.

Once upon a time the Lawrence music scene was supposed to be "the next Seattle" with bands like Danger Bob, Season To Risk (Song in the movie Strange Days), Shiner, Molly McGuire, Stick (song in PCU), Pamper the Madman... Even Billy Goat if we add Topeka.

spiralscratch: Nirvana, well we will never really know for sure how that would have turned out.


They would have broken up years ago.

Grohl, the talent in the band, would have went on to do what he is doing. Corbain would be playing Melvins tribute shows in clubs and probably happy to do so, bad mouthing Grohl the whole time anyway. But, the reality is Corbain probably would have ODed and died already or be rotting in prison for killing his wife.

All three of them would have to hear daily about reunion tour from nostalgia hungry 90's kids.

PacManDreaming: 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).


AHEM, Stadium Arcadium is awesome. As is Blood Sugar Sex Magic. There are little jewels on most of their other albums too.

Nope. There were a few good ones on BSSM, after that they went to shiat. It's like they were a completely different band. I suggest you check out Freaky Styley, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan and Mother's Milk. After listening to those, you'll throw Stadium Arcadium and pretty much everything else they've released in the last 20 years into the trash where it belongs.

Yup. "Under The Bridge" is pretty much the point where the RHCP went from good to bad.
