Odd year but I guess when you look at them hard they're all a bit odd in retrospect.
Thought there wasn't going to be a single US jazz album I liked enough, and when I came across one it was an album I had played maybe once when I first got it. At one point Keith and Julie Tippett contended for my affections with Les Diaboliques (Maggie Nicols, Irene Schweizer and Joelle Leandre), and then I found myself puzzling over choosing between All Saints or Kylie Minogue.
Shola Ama and the Sophia Domancich Trio were runners up, as was the posthumous Jimi Hendrix album 'First Rays of the New Rising Sun'.
As for trying to order them...
Frankly appalled that Mansun didn't make the top 20
it's a really shit list tbf. I'm glad I didn't get involved.
You could have made the difference
doubt it. Maybe it might have pushed nuyorican soul into the top 20, but can't see anything else was considering making the list.
You could "pull a Knotted" by shaming us with your superior list?
I think I only heard about 3 of my top ten during 1997. There was too much going on to be listening to albums, I tell ya!
I hadn't actually put it together, no point now.
i think the point is to find new music to listen to - seeing peoples individual lists is the best bit
Millennials, eh, I dunno...
I think I'm tail end Gen-X rather than Millenial tbf.
Who actually voted for Robbie Williams though? Madness.
Better than the frigging deftones.
Album title of the year!
1.Mansun - Grey Lantern
2.Radiohead - OK Computer
3.Eels - Beautiful Freak
4.Spiritualised - Ladies and Gentlemen we are floating in space.
5.Portishead - Portishead
6.Teenage Fanclub - Songs from a northern Britain
7.Beth Orton - Trailer Park
8.The Verve - Urban Hymns
9.Daftpunk - Homework
10.Texas - White on Blonde.
It wouldn't have
Might have got rid of bloody Aerosmith tho - Aerosmith??
Basically, this year the 'interesting' albums were spread too thinly amongst voters, but the rockists stuck together.
Released in '96
Their Appetite for Destruction humiliation in '87 was clearly an organisational kick up the arse.
LOL must have listened to that Spritualized album dozens of times. Never cottoned on that it was a break up album. Just liked the sound of it as a (mostly) blissful noise
