    You got 12 albums out of it. I can barely think of 12 good albums in the last decade! If a year has three or four keepers then for me that's a good year.

    Yes, my lists are getting shorter as the 90s progress (and I thought the 80s were bad already).

    I thought the late 1990s had the greatest variety of music of any era while I've been an adult. Something for everyone and yes, a lot more annoying stuff as well. That's variety for you! The mid to late 1980s was the wilderness for me.

    Another Great Year that followed 1994 that cost me a lot of money for New CDs. Pretty much every UK Album listed I concur with(especially The Bends, Different Class, The Sky Moves Sideways, A Northern Soul, I Should Coco, Elastica-ST), and Outside is one of my favorite Bowie Albums, but cannot believe the lists in the prior posts with several Brit-Pop Albums, missed out on the of the Top 3 Albums-IMO
    Gene-Olympian(It out Smiths The Smiths to me). I still listen to it often.

    Also This Album has not been mentioned yet unless I missed it. 'In The Meantime' was one of the Best Songs of 1995-IMO, when we were in the last days of Good Alternative Music Radio Stations before the Evil Clear Channel and another Corporation took over and sanitized all Music Radio Stations(but I usually played my CDs in the car anyways).
