    alright guys!

    boy oh boy! what a year this is. was not overly impressed with 1990, but man, this year completely blows it out of the water imo. so many seminal albums! struggling to keep it down to 10 tbh, but here we go anyway

    Dr Dre - The Chronic
    Beastie Boys - Check Your Head
    Pete Rock and C.L Smooth - Mecca and the Soul Brother
    Gang Starr - Daily Operation
    Ice Cube - The Predator
    The Lemonheads - It's a Shame about Ray
    Rage Against the Machine - S/T
    Morrissey - Your Arsenal
    Nirvana - Incesticide
    The Orb - U.F Orb

    again, a pretty hip hop centric list, but I'm ok with that! t'was golden age of hip hop n all that..

    thoughts, comments. recommendations, lists and so on are most welcome!

    cheers guys!

    Not counting live, greatest hits or compilation albums...

    Couldn't even find 10.

    1. Barenaked Ladies - Gordon
    2. Ugly Kid Joe - America's Least Wanted
    2. Stone Temple Pilots - Core
    3. Neil Young - Harvest Moon
    4. Alice in Chains - Dirt

    1992 wasn't a great year for music for me. '91 and '93 were!

    While the 1990s are my least favourite decade, musically, since the 50s, these threads are reminding me that within the vast desert of dross, there was a surprisingly large amount of good stuff out there as well.

    Pete Morton - Mad World Blues

    The Lost T-Shirts Of Atlantis - Yellow Cassette

    Eddy Morton - The Infinite Room

    Tom Pacheco - Tales From The Red Lake

    After Hours - Hung Up & Dry / Up To Here
