So here is the logical sequel to the 80's albums thread....


In no particular order:


1. Time Out of Mind - Bob Dylan (1997)
2. Vol. 3 - Traveling Wilburys (1990)
3. 40 Oz. to Freedom - Sublime - (1992)
4. August and Everything After - Counting Crows (1993)
5. Automatic for the People - R.E.M (1992)
6. The Sky Is Crying - Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble (1991)
7. Harvest Moon - Neil Young (1992)
8. Tubthumper - Chumbawamba (1997)
9. Unplugged - Neil Young (1993)
10. Amused to Death - Roger Waters (1992)
11. The Wall: Live in Berlin - Roger Waters and friends (1990)
12. Supernatural - Santana (1999)
13. Anthology 1 - The Beatles (1995)
14. Anthology 2 - The Beatles (1996)
15. Anthology 3 - The Beatles (1996)


And many many more.....


Attention: same rulz as the Best Of: 80's albums no '89 or 00


I never thought Unplugged was that great. Good songs but the recording didn't seem very good at all. Harvest Moon didn't grab me either, but I haven't given it much of a chance.


Yeah, I know Neil wasn't happy with his bands performance at the unplugged gig. I had it on cassette at first and was listening to it all day long. "The Old Laughing Lady" is one I really like that way and "Like a Hurricane" with the pump organ, pretty awesome. Also liked "Helpless" "Long May You Run" and "From Hank to Hendrix" they're all fantastic songs unplugged. "Harvest Moon" is a gem next to the original "Harvest" itself in my esteem. "Unplugged" and "Harvest Moon" (and later the "Chumbawamba's" one) were given to me by the woman I was living with at the time guess they're special for the sentimental thing you might say. And I will add "Sleeps With Angels" to my list. I seem to have forgotten Clapton's unplugged too which I really liked. I know some they call the Layla unplugged the "Armani version". They're fools

I was going to put Clapton's Unplugged on my list.

Youtube had a great version of Neil busking The Old Laughing Lady with his banjo. I think they took it down though.

Just quoting the good people who reminded me of stuff I forgot

QUOTE (Naan100 @ Mar 9 2008, 09:04 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Paul Weller - Stanley Road
Kula Shaker - K


I remember for some reason being the really uncool kid for listening to Paul Weller (we're talking a time where happy hardcore is the height of the European charts here). And for some other reason I keep on going to Kula Shaker concerts the last few months, they should've played this much over here when I was 16.

QUOTE (tml @ Mar 9 2008, 04:34 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
U2 - Zooropa


I can dig Zooropa, but wouldn't add it to my list, however you reminded me of 'Pop' which everyone thought was ######, but I liked it... unsure.gif

soundgarden - superbadmotofinger


I think you're combining 'Superunknown' with 'Badmotorfinger', but I'll add Badmotorfinger to my list as well! The opening low D crash on 'Jesus christ pose' with that cool twiddly bit... hmmm

QUOTE (dxl @ Mar 9 2008, 07:33 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Air - Moon Safari
Autechre - Tri Repetae++


But of course!

Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers


As much as I don't care for the RHCP right now, that album remains great. Actually gave it a spin again the other day. And I agree with everyone who said 'OK computer', it took a decade to grow on me, but it did.

And Alex is right, we all listened to Oasis' What's the story and we all liked it. Let's see if I can find the disc

Word man. I hate the new stuff, it's so fake. I wish they'd go back to the way they were before. Stadium Arcadium is such crap

Venus Isle and Seven Worlds were both released in the 90's by Eric Johnson, hands down two of my favourite albums from that decade, there have not been many albums that have original material on them, a lot seem to be greatest hits albums and some unheard material like The Beatles Anthology series (an album I have actually).

There are a number of good albums from the decade, but few I would call favourites.

+1 Such an amazing album.

Passion and Warfare (1990) and Alien Love Secrets from 1995 by Steve Vai are a couple of amazing discs from that era as well.

Surely you're not talking about 90's albums as a whole?...

No but a lot of albums from older artists started becoming compilations and stuff I noticed, the Unplugged album by Clapton for one.

I was waiting for someone to say just that. Well it was fun. And the only album I've ever heard by them. Like I said above reminds me the good times. (What about your list Neal? Don't you have any preferences? Heaps of albums i've never heard in that thread)

My problem is trying to date albums, so I could possibly be saying 80s stuff here, but I'll give it a go:

In no particualar order:

The Black Album: Metallica
Use Your Illusions (I and II) Guns N' Roses
Ten: Pearl Jam
Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness: Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream: Smashing Pumpkins
OK Computer: Radiohead
The Bends: Radiohead
Dirt: Alice In Chains
Blood Sugar Sex Magik: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Rage Against the Machine: Rage Against the Machine

Meh, it's impossible to pick just 10. I know I've missed loads.
