Best Music Albums - Year By
1. The Smashing Pumpkins: Adore
album so far from the Pumpkins. The more mature sound fits right into my musical
2. Garbage: Version 2.0
was brilliant and this one is possibly even better. Their way of mixing rock guitars and
samplers is unique and an influence to many...
3. Air: Moon Safari
||Ambient electronica with an

4. The Watchmen: Silent Radar
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
re-invention of a career that was already outstanding. Like good wine, Madonna just keeps
6. Better Than Ezra: How Does Your Garden Grow?
7. R.E.M.: Up
||R.E.M. how I

8. Lenny Kravitz: 5
||Just when the Lenny

material so strong that we'll have to keep the faith a little bit longer...
9. 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
||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.
