    there are always great albums, these are some i liked. To me a lot of big bands released some pretty disappointing albums in 96, but i was distracted as our band had just released our first album and encountered some issues with local band politics. Anyway, looking though there's a lot of stuff I don't know that interests me, and a lot of stuff I do know that doesn't ... strange year for me.

    The Paul Westerberg and I Feel Alright, tied for second. Belle and Sebastian the runaway winner, for me.
