I loved this record when it came out, so many years ago. The low-fi, shoe gazing vibe was perfect for that summer. For fans of ethereal, well played pop music, this is a must for any list.

Live And Dangerous

At one time, I played the grooves off of this album... upon re-listening, I'm not sure it stands up to the passage of time. Maybe it's because the guitars are mixed too loud, or maybe I have become a geezer.

Dog Man Star
Aside from "We Are the Pigs" - which is a fine song - the rest of this record screams new wave mediocrity. I didn't like it 25 years ago... I still don't.

They didn't make this record for me, although I can appreciate that they completely changed funk music.

There are some great lyrics on this record, and Lauryn Hill is an exceptional talent, but when this record came out 25 years ago, it left me bored.

I'm probably one of the few folks who does not know this album, but its chilled, repetitive loungecore had me happy to listen to the entire record. I will again.

Buenas Noches From A Lonely Room
If all country music sounded like Yoakam, I wouldn't despise it so much. This is a terrific collection of songs, that have a great Tex-Mex feel and some great guests (like Buck Owens). I laughed, I cried, I gave it a four.

While this record is a bit uneven, Stutter is one of the great songs of the 90's. I cannot stress how amazing this song is. My pubic hair uncurls every time I hear it.

The Soft Bulletin
The Flaming Lips
This is honestly one of the best psychedelic pop records of all-time. It is a joyous, celestial celebration of sound where symphonic music meets pop music on an acid trip. Big fun.

I had the privilege of seeing Muddy Waters open for Johnny Winter When waters was touring his comeback record Hard Again; considered one of the best blues albums of all time. James Cotton on harmonica, Pinetop Perkins on piano, Willie 'Big Eyes' Smith on drums and Winter on guitar. Johnny Winter repays his dues by revitalizing the greatest blues artist in history with an extraordinary LP. I bought it after the show, and I still listen to it. Perfection.

Creedence Clearwater Revival
In grade nine, I used to come home from school and listen to this entire album, every day on my father's "stereo". A combination of killer songs written by guitarist and lead vocalist John Fogerty, combined with some interesting cover songs (I Heard it Through the Grapevine), this is the single best CCR record from their relatively short, but illustrious career. I still love every one of these songs.

I’ve Got a Tiger By the Tail
I have a soft spot for vintage country music, and Buck Owens plaintive harmonies and his guitar player's (Don Rich) twangy telecaster do it for me.
