    A few decent lps on this list including my 7th favorite Radiohead album and my 4th favorite Faith No More album.
    But you really think ACDC had the best album of 1995? They didn't even have the best albums in the years in which they were actually relevant. And they were far from relevant in 1995.

    Edit: sorry a bit of pwi(posting while intoxicated) and initially missed the alphabetical part. Still ACDC has no place on a best of '95 list.
    Also I don't think anyone has mentioned Tales From The Punch Bowel yet. Not in my top three Primus albums but still really good and the first time I saw them was on this tour.
