Yeah, I should've qualified that list. I'd rather listen to those early Sleeper singles than the rerecorded version on the album. That Del Amitri album has it's moments but, meh. I don't ever need to listen to "The Bends" again, it's well played out for me. I listened to a track from Sidi Bou Said yesterday and can't understand my enthusiasm. Otherwise I still rate the rest very highly.

I ripped all my CDs over the last year or so and make randomised playlists for commuting/listening at work etc and some songs from that album came up recently and I had the opposite reaction - haven't listened to that album in years but I thought it held up pretty well (or at least the songs I listened to, maybe I just got lucky)

kornrulez I was thinking the same thing, that it seems like 1995 was the peak of the No Depression-era (which was the year the magazine launched as well). Certainly not the beginning of country rock, but I love how pop constantly recycles the canon.

Regarding Sidi Bou Said, Col. Poo said:I ripped all my CDs over the last year or so and make randomised playlists for commuting/listening at work etc and some songs from that album came up recently and I had the opposite reaction - haven't listened to that album in years but I thought it held up pretty well (or at least the songs I listened to, maybe I just got lucky)
In 1995 I was deeply into Throwing Muses - it helped that I live in Boston and got to see Kristin with and without the band a number of times. Sidi Bou Said shared a similar sound and I went gaga for them at the time but haven't revisited them in yonks, I will rectify that shortly.
Regarding 1995 being the peak of No Depression, I'd argue 1998 was the peak when the Billy Bragg/Wilco collaboration came out - that's certainly what grabbed my attention and brought the scene significant notice.

i had a lot of those big blockbuster albums at the time b/c ppl, including my family apparently, scooped up overpriced cd's like it was nothing back then (+ many segments of the industry were trying to train white consumers especially to stop purchasing singles), but honestly i didn't like listening to any of them as full albums. i discovered napster the following year and rarely bothered to get cd's for quite a while after that.

a number of 1999 listicles are out lately. i know this is total pedantry but producers of such #content need to try to adhere to consistent rules as to what actually counts as being from the year they are supposedly covering. one list includes "hard knock life", which was released AND at its peak of exposure in winter '98, while another lists "big pimpin'", which was released as a single and at peak exposure in spring 2000. (apparently its parent album being commercially available for a grand total of FOUR DAYS during 1999 qualifies it as a 1999 single.)
same with, like, "thong song" and "maria maria". hardly anyone was listening to either of those songs until 2000. i understand the eagerness to write about some of these songs but really, it's okay to wait one more year, no need to pretend these were in any way part of the '99 zeitgeist.

Turns out most of the albums I was thinking of for Y2K actually came out in 1999 or 2001, but Internal Wrangler was easily the disappointment of that year for me. Clinic were one of my favorite bands in 1999. As a 15 year old in America I didn't know anyone else who listened to that stuff. I'd heard somewhere that it was going to be a lot like their previous releases, but with more of a disco influence(!!)
The stylistic similarity was undeniable, but the disco was missing. Unfortunately, so was the effervescence and ghostly aura that made their early singles so appealing. Compared to Porno, Cement Mixer and Kimberly it was like a Coke can left out on the nightstand, basically the same substance but warm and flat. The 'Ornette!' cover art mirrors this flatness perfectly, just like the Xeroxes on their first three singles spoke to the way they'd appropriated influences: missing information, all the more stark and mysterious. I'd enjoyed The Second Line as a single (it's hard not to like a song whose chorus goes "diggy diggy tomommanaut"), but in the context of the album it lost dimensionality.
Of the bands I was into then, Clinic were probably the last one I exprected to release 10 albums over a 20 year career. They really seemed like a band that would do one or 2 albums then split.
― Deflatormouse, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:59 (nine months ago) link
I have some friends who were -- and remain -- fans of Clinic and I got the impression that said friends thought they were due a big breakout album and it was disappointing when 2000 wasn't their year. I like them, though!
And their visual aesthetic is very on point for 2020

Blew my mind the other day to find out that Point by Cornelius is nearly 20 years old. Always thought it sounded like the future. But I relisten now and it's clearly a Y2K album.
I Get Wet is gonna be 20 this year. God damn.

Hah, I’d completely forgotten about Bob Drake. Good record, yeah.

Point does sound of its time but I think it's aged pretty well, more than Phantasma at least, which I like but is definitely something of a time capsule.
