Let me continue with the best of the 90s theme for one more post. But this time let me present to you what I think are the best rock albums of the 90. I should tell you that in the 90s I was much more of a country fan then a rock fan and that I only recently started discovering some rock that I like. It should also be noted that I’m not much of a fan of mainstream or indie rock (indie rock in this case referring to a style rather then record label status). Also it should be noted that I’m using the term rock in a broadly defined way so some things on this list may not fit a more narrow definition of rock that some people have. So here is my list of the best rock albums of the 90s.
1. Plumb – Plumb
2. Plumb – candycoatedwaterdrops
3. Chris Gaines (AKA Garth Brooks) – Greatest Hits/Garth Brooks in…. The Life of Chris Gaines
4. The Corrs – Unplugged
5. The Corrs – Talk on Corners
6. The Band – High on the Hog
If you follow me on Twitter or my Twitter feed over on Facebook you’ll know that all weekend I’ve been on a retro 90s trip. Well more accurately a retro 90s country trip. In fact all weekend I have been playing all my old country CDs and cassette tapes (tapes). Yup if I had the album on tape I did not bother to then go get it on CD. Well now if one of my tapes dos die then it’s time to download it onto my computer in MP3 format. Yes in MP3 format ’cause CDs just like cassette tapes are now on their way out. So you may be thinking what would he say are the best country albums of the 90s? Well even if you’re not asking yourself this question I will answer it for you anyway. How would I determine what are the best country albums of the 90s? Well I could go look up which ones have sold the most copes and rank them accordingly to those figures. But that may not give you any indexation of what I think are the best country albums from the 90s. So then what would? Well if I gave you a list of the ones that I have listened to and continue to listen to the most you may get a better indexation of what I think are the best ones. So here is my list of the 15 best country albums from the 90s.
