Before you ask - YES, there will be a 1995 poll entry. I got my years a bit scrambled there after being away from this for months.

A lot of strong stuff here, and once again, a bunch of stuff I never heard (and I few I never heard of at all, like Pitchblende).
And, yes, some of these are reissues. Yes, I’m including everything.

And I won’t even bury the lede here - “Genius + Love” is my vote.

Still waiting for 1995

this is sophie’s choice between firewater and ride the fader—two albums that had a massive impact on how i think about music. yet i’m still tempted to throw a vote to start packing.

that Liquor Giants album is massively under appreciated

I am a resident silkworm stan but Marshmallows by the For Carnation is just a miracle of a record. Sui generis and gets my vote

I would vote for the Run On album, but it’s not here – I assume due to the things that need fixin’ (referenced above). Rigged poll without it!

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