Hmm… Basic Channel, on a bit of a whim.

Paul Chain over Goodie Mob just barely

she carries a torch. two torches, actually (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 10:31 (three weeks ago) link

Basic Channel or Tindersticks or GBV on this list

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 10:36 (three weeks ago) link

I feel like the right answer is probably GbV/Smog/Roy Montgomery or one of the electronic albums, but I might vote King anyway since I meant to vote for Belly's 1st album in the '92 list until it was pointed out that it was from '93 (at least, my copy agrees) and then it got 0 votes. Also, the 2nd album never got enough love, and even the 1st is I guess fading into obscurity a bit now.

(Though there is a lot of great electronic stuff here which it would be nice to see represented in the results, hmm...)

a passing spacecadet, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 10:54 (three weeks ago) link

Basic Channel or my favourite GBV album

willem, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:59 (three weeks ago) link

Voted for Alien Lanes

jakey mo collier (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 12:24 (three weeks ago) link

Oval might not appear in later years/polls, so I feel I should ensure he gets at least a little bit of love here.

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 12:34 (three weeks ago) link

Bruce Springsteen - The Ghost of Tom joad

I've tried so many times with this record, and I've never been able get into it. In The New Book Of Rock Lists, among the lists were "Musicians who should read more books" and "Musicians who should read fewer books." Springsteen was in the latter list: "Cut him off until his music catches up with his lyrics."

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 14:49 (three weeks ago) link

The research/lyrics/storytelling work fine for me, but the mumbling gets in the way of them. "Straight Time" is slept on, though.

Cant speak for mike but this one is the only one I own

Thus Spoke Darraghustra (Oor Neechy), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 15:03 (three weeks ago) link

The Red Krayola, Amor and Language
Whale, We Care
Chavez, Gone Glimmering
Kissyfur, Frambuesa
Sentridoh, The Original Losing Losers (disqualified, as sort of an expanded re-release?)
Number One Cup, Possum Trot Plan
Run On, On/Off (EP)

symbolic

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:07 (three weeks ago) link

Alien Lanes from this list without a doubt although my nostalgia pick would be I Should Coco.

Gavin, Leeds, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:15 (three weeks ago) link

Another one:

Long Fin Killie, Houdini

the last Berry La Croix in the work fridge (morrisp), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:20 (three weeks ago) link

That's on the other poll

The World According To.... (Michael B), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:40 (three weeks ago) link

94 diskont which ofc I assumed came out in 94

flappy bird, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:40 (three weeks ago) link

xp ah, apologies

the last Berry La Croix in the work fridge (morrisp), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:42 (three weeks ago) link

For me it's 'Trace' by Son Volt.

Grantman, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 17:59 (three weeks ago) link

Ghost of Tom Joad is Nebraska pt. 2 IMO

"Sinaloa Cowboys" is my favourite song on it

The World According To.... (Michael B), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 22:38 (three weeks ago) link

94 Diskont for me

Dan S, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 22:39 (three weeks ago) link

Basic Channel.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 22:59 (three weeks ago) link

haven’t heard a lot of the records on this list

Basic Channel would be the other one I would vote for besides Oval

Dan S, Thursday, 1 August 2019 00:00 (three weeks ago) link

Lots of good alt.country choices on this list.

that's not my post, Thursday, 1 August 2019 00:44 (three weeks ago) link

look I love basic channel and brown sugar and move d and 94 diskont but I gotta be real and vote oasis here

brimstead, Thursday, 1 August 2019 00:48 (three weeks ago) link

I like the Tindersticks album, also Roy Montgomery

Dan S, Thursday, 1 August 2019 01:13 (three weeks ago) link

Another good Matador ‘95 release;

Railroad Jerk, One Track Mind

the last Berry La Croix in the work fridge (morrisp), Thursday, 1 August 2019 01:15 (three weeks ago) link

OK one more bubbling under from me, then I’ll stop (it’s too good a year):

Air Miami, Me. Me. Me

the last Berry La Croix in the work fridge (morrisp), Thursday, 1 August 2019 01:32 (three weeks ago) link

I still have Caspar Brotzmann Massaker, Oval, The Black Dog and Smog albums but think Oval is the only one of those i've listened to over the last decade.

stirmonster, Thursday, 1 August 2019 03:25 (three weeks ago) link

look I love basic channel and brown sugar and move d and 94 diskont but I gotta be real and vote oasis here

The World According To.... (Michael B), Thursday, 1 August 2019 08:36 (three weeks ago) link

Sod it, I'm throwing one to the first Ben Folds Five. Hugely underrated album

frame casual (dog latin), Thursday, 1 August 2019 13:16 (three weeks ago) link

It is! I adored it at the time. I feel bad now I didnt vote for it. "Philosophy" is a great tune.

The World According To.... (Michael B), Thursday, 1 August 2019 13:45 (three weeks ago) link

Shit I forgot what I vote for

Thus Spoke Darraghustra (Oor Neechy), Friday, 2 August 2019 14:13 (three weeks ago) link

I know Bill Callahan has done other, much better work, but... I had in my car (and I think I still have in my car!) a CD-R of that Smog album, bookended by the EPs he released the year before* and the year after**, which I practically lived in during one particularly bleak period of my life.

*: The Burning Kingdom
**: Kicking A Couple Around

Been a slow education for (bernard snowy), Friday, 2 August 2019 15:22 (three weeks ago) link

Voted for Oval

All along there is the sound of feedback (Sund4r), Friday, 2 August 2019 15:29 (three weeks ago) link

It feels like part of the beginning of something that is really important in the world that exists inside my head.

In 1995, I would have voted for Washing Machine/Psychic Hearts.

Electro-pura by a pretty wide margin.

kornrulez6969, Friday, 2 August 2019 15:48 (three weeks ago) link

Most of my favorites are on this list

Pacer just over Scenes from the South Isle and Ghost of Tom Joad

think the toledo mud hens but for twitter (Drugs A. Money), Sunday, 4 August 2019 21:38 (two weeks ago) link

Jacob's Optical Stairway gets mine

octobeard, Monday, 5 August 2019 01:08 (two weeks ago) link

Nice opportunity to vote for the most underrated Low album.

sctttnnnt (pgwp), Monday, 5 August 2019 01:15 (two weeks ago) link

Oasis bro

calstars, Monday, 5 August 2019 01:15 (two weeks ago) link

Urge Overkill - Exit the Dragon is a highly underrated album

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 5 August 2019 01:49 (two weeks ago) link

how did Menswear get in this list, Michael and Oor Neechy explain yourselves

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Monday, 5 August 2019 07:53 (two weeks ago) link

Menswear = one of the best things in the list

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Monday, 5 August 2019 08:05 (two weeks ago) link

An Oor Neechy pick not mine!

The World According To.... (Michael B), Monday, 5 August 2019 12:14 (two weeks ago) link

hah I'm joshing really, I only know the singles which were... not very good

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Monday, 5 August 2019 13:52 (two weeks ago) link

the singles were a thousand times better than that soundgarden LP

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Monday, 5 August 2019 13:55 (two weeks ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Tuesday, 6 August 2019 00:01 (two weeks ago) link

think we have the 2 polls ready for 96. the bubbling under list that missed out on both is enough for a third poll but we are not doing 3 so dont ask, lol

Thus Spoke Darraghustra (Oor Neechy), Tuesday, 6 August 2019 17:06 (two weeks ago) link

This is a much weaker list than the first one, it’ll have to be Symbolic but it’s not even in my top 3 Death albums.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 6 August 2019 17:20 (two weeks ago) link

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

System, Wednesday, 7 August 2019 00:01 (two weeks ago) link

This is the 1st poll to go under 100 votes (98) since we started polling albums from 1969.

Thus Spoke Darraghustra (Oor Neechy), Wednesday, 7 August 2019 11:02 (two weeks ago) link
