The CDP's Top 150 Albums Of The 90's (#150-101).

Photobucket

Welcome to Week Three of my three-week retrospectivus of the 1990's. I'm currently hard at work on my next book, but I still wanted to publish this straight-up, no-frills countdown as a way to keep the CDP fresh throughout the month of July. Don't take it too seriously; the opinions are my own and I hope you're at least slightly entertained.

First thing's first. The only albums considered for the countdown had to be released in America at some point within the decade of the 90's. I also avoided uber-obscure or hard-to find stuff, and based it as much as I could on my enjoyment of the album at the moment in time when which it aired. Music is a combination of personal preference, personal experience and the precise moment in time when it hit you, so your listening habits will vary. If you have a gripe, sound off in the comments section and let me know.

Enjoy.

Comments:
No Pocky and Bandwagonesque way way too low dude. They are in my top 40 ALL TIME!

No Pocky makes the emo kids cry. "It's too loud and squealy!" Deal with it.
 
I just got a copy of Love Songs for the Retarded on vinyl the other day. I missed seeing the Queers play Madison earlier this year, much to my regret.

Also, Face to Face has a new album coming out this fall. Consider me excited.
 
SMED - They'd be higher on Celia's list, but I didn't listen the hell out of those albums as much.

WALLROCK - I saw the Queers in Green Bay on an absolutely sweltering night. They took the stage after a long delay, and as soon as they struck the first chord, this massive dude in front of me passed clean out. It was terrifying and hilarious at the same time.

Don't Turn Away is...man, that's a good album.
