I'm with Tommy on this one. Although the 90's were the beginning of commercialism in music I much preffer it then say, the 80's.

Yeah, before the 90s you had only commerce-untainted acts like The Monkees, The Osmonds, Barry Manilow, Kylie Minogue & Jason Donovan, and, of course, the entirety of Motown records.

Then the 90s came.  *brr*

Sorry, smart-ass-ness aside, I think the 90s were an incredible time of massive formal overhaul.  The explosion of rave culture in the UK and hip-hop in the US were .. quite a deal.

I always thought that having a Tocotronic album would be kinda cool, the few songs I have heard were pretty good.

But to pick up on Nuisance's posts, it is certainly eye-catching if pretty predictable how rooted in 90's (indie) rock many of us are.
By comparison the non-rock albums are relatively few, as Nuisance said, and when they are occur it seems mostly that the person behind the list is heavily into a particular scene.
All in all it makes sense. I don't think it is a problem really but personally I have branched out somewhat since being enarmoured by "alternative" music.
Though it is a bit difficult to find albums completely free of rock influence, take the Jim O'Rourke album I mentioned. It doesn't have anything to do with rock superficially but it is made by a noted guitarist, same with a lot of minimalism - Fennesz, Growing, Geoff Mullen and so on.
It is just so all-compassing that I think it is inevitable to dominate these kinds of lists, even with the upheaval of the dance scene in the 90's.

Of both those huge nineties lists I like 2 bands, and both not that much. So, yeah, I think the decade sucks.

And of course there were manufactured and commercialised bands before the 90's, but the level of penetration was just phenomenal. Commercialisation started trying to take over almost every facet of music in the nineties. It pretty much killed punk, I can't think of one punk album I like from the 90's, except maybe some Driller Killer shit.

Okay, Okay, since absolutely nobody cares about my list, I feel the need to finally post it. No real order to it.

Jawbreaker - 24 Hour Revenge Therapy

Mmm...pop-punk...Blake and crew's finest, in my opinion. Top punk release of the 90s,
Three Blue Teardrops - One Part Fist

Neo-Rockabilly? Cow-punk? Just plain awesome? All three, thanks, and produced by Alan Wilson (Sharks), to boot!

Los Straitjackets - Viva!

The instrumental squad's second, and still the best (though 'Sing Along With' comes close) .Fourteen classics going from surf to spy to every other instrumental genre.

The Meteors - Meteors Vs The World

I can't help it. I'm a huge psychobilly fan, and the Meteors are still the best band in it, twenty five years later. This one's a two-LP collection that came out in 1999 featuring 17 new tracks, 8 or so live tracks, and a handful of remakes of stuff from their early 80s stuff.

The 5.6.7.8s  - Either Can't Help It or Bomb the Twist (i cant pick, sorry...)

I've always loved garage. I've always loved all-female bands. This takes the best of both and creates fuzzed-out yumminess. Yes, yes, "Woo-Hoo" is on Bomb the Twist, but there's lots of better songs they wrote, too.

Other good stuff - Elysian Fields - Bleed Your Cedar (Steve Albini produced it!), Radiohead - The Bends, Trashwomen - Spend the Night With..., Tori Amos - Under the Pink, Snoop Doggy Dogg - Doggy Style, pretty much everything Guitar Wolf released in the 90s,  and a handful of other releases

Exactly. You can't trash every punk band from the 90s just because of Green Day, Offspring and Rancid (and then blink182). If anything it made the scene better. Because of all the interest generated other bands could get a little bigger. Of course a whole bunch of shitty MTV bands came out too but thats gonna happen with any style of music getting really popular really quickly. All my favourite punk bands put out the majority of their records in the 90s.
I'd love to know why you think the 90s sucked so bad for punk.

i don't think kharbevnor would agree with you on what defines a punk band for one.
in fact, i don't think many people agree.

in fact, even i'm struggling. would a band like jawbox or hoover be considered punk? i honestly don't know.
can you name some examples?

Ramones, Screeching Weasel, The Queers, Teenage Bottlerocket, MTX, Riverdales, Lillingtons, Groovie Ghoulies, Jawbreaker, Teen Idols, Fifteen, Born Against, Propagandhi, Descendents, ALL, Angry Samoans, Minor Threat, Face to Face, Social Distortion......

These are a few of my favourite bands. I would call them all punk bands. I've never heard of Jawbox or Hoover so I can't really comment dude.

Anyway unfortunately on the internet you can come off sounding like a jerk by accident sometimes and that was totally not what I intended.
And its true that alot of people won't agree on what is or isn't punk haha.

I'd love to know why you think the 90s sucked so bad for punk.

Mainly a distinct scarcity of good new material by bands such as New Model Army, The Anti-Nowhere League, The UK Subs, The Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, Crass, The Sex Pistols, Stiff Little Fingers, The Ramones, MDC, The Damned, 999, Cock Sparrer*, Black Flag, X-Ray Spex, Bad Brains, The Slits, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Adverts, GBH, Crisis etc. with what albums any of these bands still existing did release being few in number compared to other decades and/or not their best work. Also, almost no good punk bands I can think of sprung into existence in the nineties. Grasping at straws, I might say Amen and Anti-Flag, and neither of them are up to the standards of most of the other bands I listed. It's not a completely wasted decade of course, but compared to the 80's or 70's, it's nothing. It's also of course the decade of really, really, really shit pop-punk.


*Okay, Two Monkeys was actually really good, but I'm on a roll here.

I don't think that because bands you enjoy from a certain genre didn't release good albums necessarily means that an entire decade of that genre's music sucks.

Awesome comments as per usual.  A few more points about the direction the lists have gone:

This is the QC forums.  I think that does bias things roughly towards Jeph's interests, as they come through in the comic.  I have friends who have encyclopaedic knowledge of, I dunno, reggae, techno or hip-hop, but who wouldn't know any of the bands that are coming out on top here.

I reckon one of the key things about how both dance and hip-hop is generally consumed is it's not album-oriented music.  It's about 12"s, remixes of other people, DJ mixes, nights out (where you don't know whose music you were listening to, just which DJ was playing it) etc.  There are some albums that are considered classics, of course, but I think moreso than with rock people don't think of the album itself as a work, just a bunch of tracks.  If asked about the great moments of Detroit techno or something most people would talk about singles.

About minimalists, there are plenty who come from a background in classical or dance music, or even visual arts - Taylor Deupree, Steve Roden, Akira Rabelais, William Basinski, Carsten Nikolai (Alva Noto) and basically everyone he's released on his label, Pan Sonic, etc. - although I guess most musos are not the ones to be blinkered about what they listen to or take influence from.  Usually it's the fans who get territorial...

Yeah Systemich is good but Do While is one of my favorite ambient/do homework/drone out songs so I gotta reprezent. I would have but Ovalcommers cause I think thats one of their best but that was released to late to be relevant. Though I haven't heard their whole library I can't really think of anything that isn't completely rad.

So, in that way you could say that it is reminiscent of back before album-rock, with Shangri-las and whatnot.
The anachcronistic vehicle of music in the future if you are to believe that pitchfork guy.
Personally I like the album which makes sense if you look at my cd collection.
It is mostly rock or rock-related with a patch of noise/ambient. The kind of albums where the songs usually don't work out of context.
Maybe we should make a top 5 singles in the 90's thread to be fair to hiphop and dance et al.

Sick Of It All:  Built To Last.  Always comes to mind when people ask me for a good hardcore record.
Citizen Fish: Thirst .  Bouncy and acidly sardonic? Sign me up.
Sonic Youth: Sister.  I dont know why more people dont worship this record.
The Mr. T Experience: .....And the Women who love them.   Sappy goofy poppy. Its the perfect record of its genre and time.
Botch: American Nervoso.  This is about as metal/thrash/noise as I get. I dont think for the time you get much better. Well, till Drowningman anyway.

Thats the last set of 90's era stuff in my playlist. cant really do a top 5, trying is like picking a finger to gnaw off.

All these lists make me really sad that I was stuck in the quagmire of awful music when the 90's happened...

Will you shun me when I admit that for at least the first half of that decade, I listened to nothing but country radio stations?  I EVEN CALLED IN REQUESTS!  I am so ashamed...

Oh man..
I was really hoping someone would have mentioned Mansun, as Six was one of the most important albums I listened to in my formative years, all proggy and inventive and trying so hard to kill the remains of Britpop..
But then, no-one really liked them at the time. :-(

And all the credible stuff I liked has been said already.

I sort of agree. Actually, my favorite Fugazi album right now is The Argument, although I haven't given neither Red Medicine nor End Hits enough attention yet, so I won't settle on this. But I really like The Argument, it feels like a, for the lack of a better term, mature album.

  • I know that these guys are getting really huge lately, and that it is like the new "Indie" thing to be all into them, but i've been digging on these guys since about 1999 (when i was in middle school) and i found them completely of my own volition, so i pride myself on liking them without a hype-driven opinion
"Flood"-They Might Be Giants
  • I feel like even typing this is going to send me to hipster kid hell, but i love these guys! they write music the way they want to hear it, and it's glorious, and it remains stalwart through nearly 20 years or so
"Whatever and Ever Amen"-Ben Folds Five
  • Like i said, burning in hipster hell for these.? But c'mon this is like a perfect cd, not a single bad track
"Crash"-Dave Matthews Band
  • I'm a noob here and i'm just asking to get flamed to death, but again, another glorious album
"Songs From the Unrealized Film Script: Dusk At Cubist Castle"
  • maybe i can redeem myself with this one, but this album is nothing short of stunning and glorious
"When Your Heartstrings Break"-Beulah
  • Best fucking band ever!  these guys are amazing, and this is the best album they ever put out!

Actually, the only Fugazi album I own right now is The Argument.  I love it though.  I'm gonna order Red Medicine within the next week.

Yeah Mis, I tried to find some deeper significance too, but I don't think there is any.

1. Horde - Hellig Usvart - 1994
2. Crimson Moonlight - Glorification of the Master of Light - 1997
3. Antestor - The Return of the Black Death - 1998
4. Antestor - Martyrium - 1994
5. Vaakevandring - Vaakevandring - 1999

I don't actually think that these are the best albums of the '90s, I just wanted to see if I could make Khar/Troll's head asplode.
