    The start of a great run of years for albums. I own a lot of 1960s albums then there's a huge gap to this year when I started buying them again. The VU box set encouraged me to buy my first CD player.

    All Change - Cast
    The Charlatans - The Charlatans
    ‘Mark’s Keyboard Repair’ - Money Mark
    Garbage - Garbage

    I think it's a strong year. This is the point in the '90s when female artists were just absolutely crushing it. I think the 1990s were an absolutely amazing decade for women in music.

    PJ Harvey To Bring You My Love
    Radiohead The Bends
    Wilco A.M.
    Alanis Morissette Jagged Little Pill
    Natalie Merchant Tigerlily
    Jewel Pieces of You
    Ani DiFranco Not a Pretty Girl
    Garbage Garbage
    Joan Osborne Relish
    Flaming Lips Clouds Taste Metallic
    Lisa Loeb Tails
    Emmylou Harris Wrecking Ball
    Oasis (What's the Story) Morning Glory
    Poe Hello
    No Doubt Tragic Kingdom
    Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (*favorite*)
    Aimee Mann I'm with Stupid
    Rolling Stones Stripped
    Enya The Memory of Trees

    It's my favorite of the year and one of my favorites ever. Absolutely love it.

    Looking back it was a bit of a slower year, but there was still plenty of good stuff. My top 10

    10. Paul Weller - Stanley Road
    9. Peter Murphy - Cascade
    8. Simple Minds - Good News From The Next World
    7. Electrafixion - Burned
    6. Oasis - What's The Story Morning Glory
    5. Radiohead - The Bends
    4. Tears For Fears - Raoul And The Kings Of Spain
    3. Garbage

    ** I made an edit here, I thought that The Bends was released in 94, so I reordered my list, sadly this ejected Big Audio Dynamite's F-Punk off my top 10.
