1. The Smashing Pumpkins: Adore

The Smashing Pumpkins: Adore Best album so far from the Pumpkins. The more mature sound fits right into my musical universe...

2. Garbage: Version 2.0

Garbage: Version 2.0 Their debut was brilliant and this one is possibly even better. Their way of mixing rock guitars and samplers is unique and an influence to many...

4. The Watchmen: Silent Radar

The Watchmen: Silent Radar Traditional rock done with so much class that you regain some of the hope and optimism when it comes to the future of rock.

5. Madonna: Ray Of Light

Madonna: Ray Of Light Brilliant re-invention of a career that was already outstanding. Like good wine, Madonna just keeps getting better.

6. Better Than Ezra: How Does Your Garden Grow?

Better Than Ezra: How Does Your Garden Grow? Third album from New Orleans based BTE. The music has been polished a bit compared to the previous Friction Baby, and the U2 inspiration stays intact.

About Better Than Ezra

7. R.E.M.: Up

R.E.M.: Up R.E.M. how I like them: laid back, quiet and substantial. An album you'll never grow tired of.

About R.E.M.

8. Lenny Kravitz: 5

Lenny Kravitz: 5 Just when the Lenny Kravitz formula seemed a bit worn and used, he goes releasing an album filled with material so strong that we'll have to keep the faith a little bit longer...

9. Transister: Transister

Transister: Transister This album landed in my collection sort of by chance. It takes the best from Garbage and Mono and mixes it into a very fine debut album. This band should have more attention!

10. Sheryl Crow: The Globe Sessions

Sheryl Crow: The Globe Sessions A good album - but her third best. She can still turn out great songs, but I miss the edge of her second album - an edge that makes her stand out.
