Did anyone check out albums they hadn't heard?

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

least amount of votes in these polls by far

A lesser known electronic music cd I really like from '97 is "Contra La Puerta" by Phylr.

Not surprised Red Apple Falls only got one vote. I can’t stand how the drummer speeds up on “Inspirational.”

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 02:17 (two years ago) link

not too surprised built to spill got so many votes, though i never quite found what i wanted to in that record. some of the songs are really great, 'randy described eternity', and 'velvet waltz' stand up well... but it's way long, cluttered, poorly engineered (maybe since that was the third time around they recorded it), just spirals into meandering and lethargic guitar at times. keep it like a secret was way more cohesive.

It felt like kind of a bummer that they followed up There’s Nothing Wrong With Love with such a turgid, ponderous album (and I listened to it a good deal). It’s like they could have gone a few different ways as a band, and they chose the worst one. I guess the obvious joke is that the record teased at the end of Nothing Wrong... would have been preferable...

There are other LPs on these 1997 polls that effectively killed my interest in the respective artists (such as Homogenic and I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One). These aren’t even bad albums, but they had the effect of: “ok, I’m done.”

Yeah I liked Perfect From Now On at the time, but it sounds more disappointing in hindsight, especially after Keep It Like A Secret came out, which became the one I always reach for.

I've only just finally gotten around to digging into Bardo Pond this year & been liking it but havent got around to Lapsed yet. Lots of stuff I havent heard in this one actually. Didnt get a chance to vote but probably would have gone w/Lambchop.

“Hakuna Matata,” a nihilist philosophy (One Eye Open), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 13:14 (two years ago) link

I would have probably voted for it if I'd voted. The BtS album I've listened to most. 1997 was largely when I tuned out, though; never listened to most of these.

perfect from now on is the best BTS

Possibly the best BTS:
