    75+ favorites, wow. In my best years of music I don't have that many favorites.

    Nice. Must dig both of these up again. They deserve a 2018 spin!

    InStepWithTheStars It's a miracle, let it alter you

    I'm really struggling to think of albums I've heard in full from 1992. The Church's Priest=Aura may be the only one.

    I like the first and last three songs of Automatic For The People but the middle sags. I like what I've heard from Magic and Loss but there's a handful of tunes I still haven't given a proper listen. And I can't remember half of Hit to Death in the Future Head, though both side openers are fantastic.

    My top 10 from that year, in no particular order:

    R.E.M. - Automatic For The People
    Toto - Kingdom Of Desire
    Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
    Dada - Puzzle
    Dream Theater - Images And Words
    Extreme - III Sides To Every Story
    Peter Gabriel - Us
    INXS - Welcome To Wherever You Are
    Manic Street Preachers - Generation Terrorists
    The Black Crowes - Southern Harmony & Musical Companion

    Some honorable mentions: Paul Weller's solo debut (great, just not as good as the follow-ups), Bon Jovi's Keep The Faith (A+ side one, mostly filler on side two), and Lindsey Buckingham's Out Of The Cradle, which just missed the cut.

    1992 found me working in music retail and volunteering for a non-commercial radio station, so I was exposed to a lot of that year's music. My votes from the OP's list:
    Peter Gabriel - Us
    REM - Automatic for the People

    My write-in votes go to:
    Los Lobos - Kiko
    Annie Lennox - Diva

    And the album I never want to hear again:
    The Bodyguard Soundtrack
