    If anyone had Crooked Rain or Slanted and Enchanted it would be in their top 10! :p:
    I have both.

    not on my laptop though which is why I didn't even think of them, neither would have made it to the top ten though. :eek:

    cant beleive "what the story (morning glory)" hasnt had a mention, to me it was THE 90s!

    a huge seller, from a band at their height of form and hype...and sparked a whole pop culture thing...they even partied with the Blairs! etc

    I too would go with "ray of light" Sopheh...Madonna was down in the dumps heading for oblivion seemingly..and then came out with one of the best (if not the best) album of her career..and got the media buzzing about her again.

    im also going to add Michael Jacksons "history" in...i know thats cheating a bit...as half the double sets 80s..but theirs some cracking songs on that album (even the then 'new' tracks) and it was a huge event at the time (they floated a statue of Jackson down the Thames to promote it etc)

    C'mon, someone has to have a pavement album!
    Dude, am loving that Decemberists song you've got in your sig. It's 8 mins perhaps, but I can listen to it 10 times a day without getting bored. Quality! It's like a story.

    hmm it is good, but I've bought it in the last year or 2 so I don't really think of it as a 90's album. I've never really listened to it properly tbh, it's so long there's alot to take in

    yeah, i think its probably my 2nd fave release of gy!be, maybe 3rd after yanqui. lift yr skinny fists. . . . is defo my fave, i remember when i first heard it i honestly thought it was the best think ever committed to tape.

    I've only just got into GY!BE , I'm gonna use 'East Hastings' in this short film I'm currently making. At the moment f#a#∞ is my favourite, but as I said I'm not that up on them yet. I have listened to that album constantly over the last couple of weeks now though.

    As for Tool my favourite album of theirs is Lateralus, but a lot of fans would disagree with me there. I'm not a massive metal head but I love their stuff, it's far more intelligent than a lot of your average metal fare.

    My fav Victory Rose album switches between ( ) and Ágætis byrjun...I think they're equally beautiful, with ( ) perhaps harder to get into.

    Yeah I love this album too, my fav track would be 'Elektrobank' (although the live version on the singles album is even better).

    Above the debut? Blasphemy...and 'Calm Like A Bomb' above 'Guerrilla Radio' and 'Testify'? Madness...
