Top Lists: Great Albums Turning 20 This Year

One year shy of legal drinking!

1991 must have been an incredible year for music (I wouldn’t know, I wasn’t born yet!).  Many remember 1991 simply as the year Nirvana released Nevermind, which ended hair metal and began a grunge movement that bands today are still taking inspiration from.  As important as that album would become, there were many other albums released in 1991 that were just as good, if not better, than Nevermind.  For the 20th anniversary of the great year that was 1991 (it was also the year Silence of the Lambs came out!) let’s take a walk down memory lane and see what music was released.

Soundgarden – Badmoterfinger

Pearl Jam – Ten

Stevie Ray Vaughan – The Sky Is Crying

Guns N’ Roses – Use Your Illusions I and II

U2 – Achtung Baby

B.B. King – Live at the Apollo

Nirvana – Nevermind

My Bloody Valentine – Loveless

Teenage Fanclub – Bandwagonesque

Metallica – Metallica (The Black Album)

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Blur – Leisure

The inspiration for this post came from an article from Guitar World, check out that article here.

March 22, 2011 = Epic Day For Music

At least for me anyways :p

Today is an exciting day for me!  I have just purchased the new albums from The Strokes and Green Day that were released today.  I have listened to both of them and I already love both of them.  The Strokes remind me of Duran Duran, in a good and weird way, with this very 80s vibe album.  Green Day’s new live album is very solid, a much better live album than Bullet In A Bible. However I would rather have a new album, preferably not a rock opera too.

Also today I got two albums from Soundgarden, a band I’ve always wanted to check out but never came around to.  I got Superunknown and Down On The Upside, and I’m looking forward to listening to both these albums.

I have a lot to process, so wish me luck!
