Songs for the Deaf.

I remember liking it at the time, but I've never felt the need to go back to it or any of its tracks.

You should check it out.

It was one of the favourite albums of the critics that year.

Yeah, 1991 alone would probably replace 5 or 6 albums here.


Thought I posted, but I went with Portishead.  Could be good, just never heard of them, so to me it's like Wilco, great band, great albums, I just wouldn't give it much more than 'Album of the year' type grammy stuff. For a list like this  sales & cultural relevance kinda matters.


BLS you should check out American Idiot. Had alot of hits but its also a concept album of sorts. Was kinda the first newer one that started the trend. Supposedly he was following up with Minority & Warning type 3 chord stuff, and said he didn't wanna do that anymore. they asked him what he wanted to do like a rock opera, and was sorta inspired by Queen. I never owned the album or listened straight thru, but there's a 9 minute song "Jesus Of Suburbia" that's pretty good & kinda fills in some of the pieces that tie it all together.

It's a pretty impressive album & I'd even view Green Day as pre-American Idiot & post-American Idiot.   It's unfortunate Pearl Jam never had such a monumental mid-career album. Other bands mostly had the singer die or form supergroups.

How did it get whittled down to those? Most of the truly exceptional albums of the century aren't there and they were nominated? Amy Winehouse - Back to Black, Beck - Morning Phase, Bob Dylan - Love and Theft  to name just a few???

I voted Portishead - Third regardless - has absolutely no business being on any best-of the century list. Dummy however, is brilliant

Was looking at The Guardian's list of top 100 albums so far this century. Only Kid A, Third and Elephant were on it. All 3 which I assume won't last long on this forum.

As for this list, 2 things to keep in mind 1: Not many people actually nominated, 2: these are the only ones that got enough nominations.

While certain nominations got vouched for multiple times, people picked different albums for said artists.

I admit I never got too into the White Stripes. Always viewed them a little bit as a lesser Green Day, mixed with The Strokes, who weren't all that lasting. Jack White's very talented tho. I searched some Top lists too, and Elephant is rated pretty high. I should give it a listen.
