It is one of my favorite albums.

Since we're only going back to 1985 I think it's a pretty good choice.

Yes, not discrediting the album, just would not be my top choice.

I wonder if I've ever listened to a single track off any of those albums. Probably not. Definitely not intentionally.

OK Computer over Nevermind? That CD defined a decade and launched a new genere into the mainstream.

Okay, are they serious? I simply don't agree. OK Computer can be there, fine. PJ Harvey??? WHAT? That's a friggin joke. My opinion, half of these albums should be qualified as Alternative Albums only, not encompassing all rock and roll.

After reading this article I realize I am more out of touch from today's society than I ever would have realized. I grew up in the 80s, played drums and guitar for over 15 tears, was in radio and I simply don't get this at all.

What a horrible list.

I wonder what the top selling albums are in that time...

Reaper16

Pretty predictable and incontroversial. The lack of Metallica, Biggie, Tupac and Tool is surprising.
The list automatically fails by not including Opeth - "Still Life," and
Ayreon - "The Human Equation."

Oasis- Definately Maybe
U2- Joshua Tree
Pearl Jam- Ten
Nirvana- Nevermind
Beastie Boys- Licensed to Ill
Radiohead- OK Computer
Red Hot Chili Peppers- Blood Sugar Sex Magick
Foo Fighters- Colour & Shape
N.W.A.- Straight Outta Compton
Metallica- Black

I'm disappointed in their selection of hip-hop albums, outside of "It Takes a Nation..."

Smashing Pumpkins Infinite Sadness and Meloncholy whatever is a great double album also...

Whether you like him or not Prince is a creative, musical genius. His albums are always ahead of their time. Sign 'O The Times was brilliant. Much like MJ he's a victim of his own eccentricity at times.

Pretty darn good list, IMO. However, I'd replace a couple of those with Jane's Addiction "Nothing's Shocking" and the Pixies "Doolittle" and the most under-rated, David & David's "Boomtown"

David & David's "Boomtown"

Damn! I love that album!

Ms. Cristina drives a nine four four
Satisfaction oozes from her pores
She keeps rings on her fingers
Marble on her floor
Cocaine on her dresser
Bars on her doors
She keeps her back against the wall
She keeps her back against the wall

So I say
I say welcome, welcome to the boomtown
Pick a habit
We got plenty to go around
Welcome, welcome to the boomtown
All that money makes such a succulent sound
Welcome to the boomtown

-------------

and I had a girl and I loved her
my best friend was her brother
we were on top of the mountain that summer
thought we'd never be swallowed by the cracks
fallen so far down
like the rest of those clowns begging bus fare back
swallowed by the cracks
our pride worn down talking times gone by
like everybody else
swallowed by the cracks

Yep...It's still one of my faves. As a matter of fact, I think it just may be the very first CD I ever bought when CD's first came out. It still remains in my CD collection to this day...

Well for my own tastes I'm going with 1988's Traveling Wilburys Volume One.

Dylan,Harrison,Orbison,Petty & Lynne together on the same project was an incredible collaboration.

Top albums since 1990
In no particular order:

Shelby Lynne - "I Am Shelby Lynne"
Chris Cornell - "Euphoria Morning"
Radiohead - "OK Computer"
Ben Folds Five - "Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Mesner"
Beck - "Mutations"
Pink Floyd - "Division Bell"
Martin Sexton - "Black Sheep"
The Flaming Lips - "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots"
Keb Mo - "Keb Mo"
Eric Clapton - "Unplugged"


These are my favorites.

I don't think that album counts... "Delicate Sounds of Thunder" was the name of the "Momentary Lapse of Reason" tour, and I know there was a "Delicate Sounds..." Live album and VHS. But if you want those tunes in a studio album... "Momentary Lapse of Reason" is your album. "Pulse" was the live album of the tour for "The Division Bell."

The best album of the last 20 years IS by Radiohead, but it's not "OK Computer", it's "The Bends".

I remember seeing those ****ers on the MTV awards shortly after that album was released. Lars was wearing his tennis gear, Newstead was dressed like a skater, Kirk was wearing a zoot suit, and James had on a western shirt and cowboy hat.

I told my friend "Hey look, it's the Village People!"

Yup. Of course, I'd throw in Linkin Park's Meteora, U2's Joshua Tree, and Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique. I'm sure I'll think of others.
