Blitz started this with his masterpiece thread so I figured I'd carry it over to here. I'd say the last 10 years of Rock music has been pretty threadbare but I'd be interested in people's opinions of the best of the last 10 years. Albums pre-1995 need not apply.

A couple to start

Aenima - Tool
Unplugged - Alice in Chains
Sublime - Sublime

I'm not even saying these are mine. Just some ideas to get it started, although I will say that Alice in Chains Unplugged is up there for me.

Undertow is better that Aenima.
40oz to Freedom is better than Sublime
Unplugged better than Dirt? Come on man.

Dirt was pre-95..I agree that it was better

40 oz to freedom is a great cd, but because of the time I got into Sublime I'm more partial to the self titled album.

As for Undertow, I have to completely disagree. But thats a moot point because it came out before 95 anyway.

It's all gunna depend on what they listen to. For me, the best albums of the last ten years are:

01. V: The New Mythology Suite ~ Symphony X
02. The Black Halo ~ Kamelot
03. Underworld ~ Adagio
04. Brave New World ~ Iron Maiden
05. Resurrection ~ Halford
06. Angel of Retribution ~ Judas Priest
07. Celestial Entrance ~ Pagan's Mind
08. Train of Thought ~ Dream Theater
09. The Odyssey ~ Symphony X
10. Killing Ground ~ Saxon

ok. well i cant follow directions apparently.

I can't even think of any album that was great following 95, although I guess Sublime's could work. My favorite albums from 1990 and beyond

Undertow- Tool
Dirt- AIC
Rage Against the Machine -RATM
Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera

92-93 was a great year for alt metal rock

Talos
12-05-2005, 05:25 PM
This started because of a post Blitz had. I agree that I'm not huge on music post 95, thats why I posted those albums.

I prefer early 90's music or music from the 60s-70s, when it comes to rock.

I'd also like to add, in response to Pagans post, that Train of Thought is an awesome album.

Blur - Think Tank
Eels - Souljacker
Tom Waits - Real Gone Although you could also make a really good case for Alice
Ryan Adams - Gold (you can say what you want, that was a really good Album)
Lou Reed - Ecstasy
Yossou N'Dour - Joko
Geoffre Oryema - Night to Night
Joe Strummer and The Mezcaleros - Global A Go Go
The Reindeer Section - Y'all get scared Ya Hear.

The problem with these kinds of question is that it is musical taste, so a lot of people would probably hate my selection. BUt I trully believe that at least the Eels one, the Tom Waits, the Joe Strummer and THe Yossou N'Dour one really where amazing in their own style of music.

I know, the guy is an awfull MC, in that he can absolutely not rhyme worth a damn, but he is such a good lyricist. When I had just bought the album I would spend hours trying to follow every part of the story that he was telling... IT was great.


ANd I was going to put American IV in there too, I think even people that had a problem with CAsh because he was country, had to accept him after that album, it is brilliant. My personal favorites are THe man Comes Around, and In my life.

Didn't liike the Fragile too much though... I think it was too long....

A slow pace would work, like Memento. But even a pace like Run Lola Run would work, given the music.

Yes, I wanted to read that one.
Trust me, I probably know exactly what it said.

Prog-metal always evokes some strange criticism. It seems like ever since '92 it's been a crime to actually be able to play your instrument with some degree of expertise, and the best example I could give of this was a review I read of the new Vinnie Moore album last year.

Now, Vinnie is a virtuoso guitarist, and the a$$hat who wrote the review wrote one sentence..."Didn't we run guys like this out of town in '93?"

It's typical that people who are limited in their playing ability find that the only way they can react to people that can play circles around them is to somehow try to make it seem like those who can play are "uncool". In that way, their own musical shortcomings seem like the "hip" thing to do.

This usually comes from people who sling their guitars down to their knees and have to look angry and tough while they play. Easy to do when you aren't playing much. ;) :lol:

Now, I'm not saying that this is how Dolfan5000 is, just people who criticize prog in general. :)

Dolfan5000
12-06-2005, 02:53 PM
Dude, what the hell... I had just said that most of those albums suck except for Judas Priest's and and Dream Theater's... And they took my qoutes out? Wow, what the hell. The two qoutes said "I garuntee we won't beat the Bills today" and the other was from Crisis saying "You guys really fought back and deserved the win today. I wish our team had this much heart"

Seriously, how does that violate TOS? I've always been one to consider how people feel before I post things on this forum. Why do you think I posted "But yeah, we have different tastes in music which is good." at the end? Because I had malice intent?.. Riiight. That's ridiculous.

Bro, how can you like Dream Theater and not Symphony X??? Have you even heard them? And Kamelot's Black Halo is their equivalent of Operation: Mindcrime.

And by the way, say you don't like them, don't say they "suck". One listen to the musicianship on those albums and saying they suck really looks kinda silly. ;)

I have been racking my head on this one for 2 days now. I honestly cannot come up with anyhting that is a "must have" album. I graduated highschool in '96 so everything before that doesn't count. I grew up on classic rock. this is a tough one.

I have a couple that I think everyone should hear.

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. Americano:If you have never heard Roger Clyne check them out. Some rock, some country, some blues. Great singer songwriter. some of you in the southwest may know them. His old band was the "refreshments", but they were pre "96.

Dave matthews and Tim Reynolds : Great acoustic album, Dave can play, but Reynolds blows him out of the water, the entire album is good.

Metallica S&M very creative album I just loved it.

CHECK OUT ROGER CLYNE!

There are lots of ways of expressing yourself, but you chose to use one that was derogatory. I don't see what's so hard to understand, really; the job we do here is to keep discussion civil. Your comment wasn't civil - it was edited.

Plus, the thread is here for you to say what YOUR favorites were - but you didn't offer anything to the discussion except negatives.

And in your description of your sig, you left out the part where you typed in capital letters, "EAT ME!!!" in reference to both the quotes it contained. Funny how you left that little tidbit out when you were defending it, eh?

Not calling you out, bro, but you brought it up, so I'm making it clear why you were modded, so you can't say you don't know from now on.

Other than maybe Nirvana, I am at a loss to really name an album or group that I really liked after 1990....I think the 90's were the worst decade in music since probably the 1940's. :lol:

The 60's, 70's and 80's rocked and then the music died and the world turned to cRAP.

Rule to always remember....NEVER DATE DEATH METAL CHICKS! they are usually rough on the eyes, however, if you do find that rare attractive one she is more than likely psychotic. I was always more into the classy goth metal gals (not to be confused with the ridiculous mall-goths of today). Anyways, the underground metal scene thrived in the 90's, and I loved every bit of it. :up:

I would put a couple of The Beatles albums and at least one Led Zeppelin in front of Nirvana any day.The 60's version of The Doors ,Jim Morrison,is what I would call Cobain(sp).I like Nirvana's music,but because he overdosed he is a God?Good album in my mind,but I would'nt say the greatest unless you were born in that generation,and that's the only type of music you listen to.

Getting on to different genres,I would say The Police(Synchronicity),Michael Jackson(Thriller) are a couple of great(but not greatest albums).Boston(Boston) was great.Black Sabbath so titled and (Heaven and Hell) were great.

You see,it depends on what you listen to that makes an album great.Not what the critics tell you is great.Is there a greatest album? YES! Whichever one YOU think is great.

Doc check out Dax Riggs (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=177885170). I've always liked his vox, he has that rich southern rock/blues tone. I found him awhile back in his more metal days as the frontman for the band Acid Bath (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=196685581). I really like another one of his old bands as well called Agents of Oblivion (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=47759403). He also has another side project called Deadboy and the Elephantmen (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=13407328) which is more folk oriented rock. ;)
