Level 68
Nov 15, 2022
Ho boy I just listened to every single song here which took forever so yeah long list.
Level 62
Nov 16, 2022
Thanks, I appreciate it. I am trying to keep the list from getting too big, but there was so much music in the 90s. Did you find anything good in my list or did I leave out some of your faves?
Level 68
Jul 23, 2023
No Fiona Apple?! Her two first albums have some fantastic songs! (Criminal, Shadowboxer, Paper Bag, Get Gone, I Know…) And I’m also partial to Björk who I don’t see on this list. It is a very extensive and very good list, though.
Level 62
Jul 23, 2023
Criminal by Fiona Apple is on the list under 1997. I should probably re-listen to that whole album again. Thanks for checking the list out; I appreciate hearing from knowledgeable music fans
Level 62
Oct 8, 2023
I relistened to Fiona Apple's 90s albums and did find some that deserved to be on my list. Thanks again for the heads up.
Level 68
Oct 9, 2023
Great picks! You could really make a case for any of her songs being here, lol
Level 74
Oct 7, 2023
Generic pick but I’m a little sad not to see much Nirvana on here (or grunge in general - Alice in Chains and Soundgarden I think deserve at least one or two spots). Lot of good post hardcore in the 90s too, Slint, Fugazi, Modest Mouse in particular. Rage Against the Machine, Neutral Milk Hotel. and My Bloody Valentine seem like big omissions too. Not a bad list overall, though.
Level 74
Oct 7, 2023
Portishead, Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Built to Spill - man, the 90s were a great time for music.
Level 62
Oct 8, 2023
I was able to correct my blunder of not including any Neutral Milk Hotel songs; one each from O.A.I. and I.T.A.O.T.S. That's all for now.
