    I don't know if I'm the most credible soul to be bringing this post to life but I'd like to hear from you nostalgic individuals about your favorite album(s) of the 90s.

    I've had many many favorites but these days my two favorite are Blind Melon - Blind Melon, and Crash Test Dummies - God Shuffled His Feet.

    What about ya!?

    Here's two that I still rank as personal top ten all time faves, from totally different musical spectrums:

    Widespread Panic - Everyday ('92)
    Nirvana - In Utero ('94)

    Agreed. In terms of canonical releases, what about these:

    Belly's 1993 debut album Star.

    Been listening to it a lot lately. Perfect album from beginning to end and it has aged really well. Some great guitar tones to boot. Just a solid piece of work.

    I felt their sophomore effort, King, was a disappointment (the band would break up shortly thereafter) but I could easily put Star into my "Top Ten Albums of the 90s" list, --probably even top 5.

    It's that good.

    All important albums. I'm lukewarm about Biggie, though. Dope beats for the most part.....lousy, lazy delivery. The Too Short of the East.

    I can hear that.

    Remember when Too $hort was selling tapes out of his car? Definitely a Bay Area hip hop history touchstone.
