2. John Kilzer: Memory In The Making

John Kilzer: Memory In The Making A strong personal rock effort not many people know about. By far more substance than Bryan Adams...

3. Prefab Sprout: From Langley Park To Memphis

Prefab Sprout: From Langley Park To Memphis Another album by Prefab Sprout that deserves much more success than is the case. This is pop music that stays.

About Prefab Sprout

4. Toto: The Seventh One

Toto: The Seventh One Best Toto album and one filled with great dynamic rockers as well as the traditional number of ballads. The great lead singer is called Joseph Williams.

5. Edie Brickell & New Bohemians: Shooting Rubberbands At The Moon

Edie Brickell & New Bohemians: Shooting Rubberbands At The Moon Hippie pop from Edie Brickell and her friends. "What I Am" was the big hit, but the album is packed with similar small pearls.

6. TV-2: Nærmest Lykkelig

TV-2: Nærmest Lykkelig One of their biggest ever. Everything was right for such an album at that time and many of the songs are Danish classics today.

About TV-2

7. Tanita Tikaram: Ancient Heart

Tanita Tikaram: Ancient Heart "Twist In My Sobriety" was something totally new and different for me. Such a darkness and such an atmosphere...

8. 'Til Tuesday: Everything's Different Now

'Til Tuesday: Everything's Different Now American pop music - no more no less. But the songs are very strong on this album, so if you don't know it you should check it out. Aimee Man's band before going solo.

9. Morrissey: Viva Hate

Morrissey: Viva Hate Not Morrissey's best but one of the best of the year. It's classic Morrissey with the usual twists and miserable mind games...

About Morrissey

10. The Traveling Wilburies: Volume 1

The Travelling Wilburys: Volume One This meeting between some of rock music's greatest actually turned out pretty okay. It made med listen to artists I normally don't like that much (Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison).
