    Zauberberg was '97. Königsforst was '98 (which I'll definitely be voting for). Pop was '00.

    Is there one I don't know about?

    does this count as a compilation? if not it's totally on my list (discogs has it as an album fwiw)

    Most of it had been released before, so I guess so. We might get by on the Yo Diddley ruling. belboid ?

    I think it's fair enough excluding DJ mixes, but this is an artist album, and not all of it had been released on 12s before. I say it's in.

    Heavenly is about the best techno album there is anyway, and was certainly the best techno album of 1998. Everyone should put it at the top of their lists.

    I entered 98 all bout the emo and h/c.

    But then I went to Lisbon on an art college exchange and decided to plan to move abroad.

    So, I'm sorry but 1998 for me ended up being all about Manu Chao's Clandestino.

    Here's a nice version of the title track....

    Melt Banana's Charlie was 1998. This is shaping up to be an amazing year.

    I'll give it listen. :thumbs:

    Jejune's This Afternoon's Malady is an all time Dave of mine released in 98.

    chilango *shrugs*

    Theres also a Cress/Doom split EP from 98 that I love, and keeps it real. But I don't think it counts an LP sadly.

    Spectralism from Romanian husband/wife composers (incidentally this is really exciting):

    Fourier transform that shit.

    Also Fugazi and Refused LPs in 1998 :thumbs:

    Hot Water Music's Fuel for the Hate Game another gem from 1998.

  24. chilango

    chilango *shrugs*

    Fanfare Ciocarlia's debut came out in 98 too :cool:
  25. chilango

    chilango *shrugs*

    Dusminguet's Vafalungo also out that year.

  26. Rebelda

    Rebelda Nearly as bad as Badgers

    I was 11, so I might :D

    Tortoise released TNT that year. Their 2nd best album imo

    Surprised not to see 4hero 2 pages on any of those lists...I don't love it so much these days mainly as I overplayed it, but still.

    The Gangstarr LP might be the last great hip hop LP.

    I know some earlier edancer 12s, but not the album, look forward to checking that

    Curious what you make of it on fresh ears... and if it feels like a 20 year old record or not.
    Another I've played to death and can't really hear it anymore.
