What Were the 90's All About?: 1992

1992 saw the Clinton win from out of nowhere, saw grunge make a big move with Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam and Nirvana all become mainstays, and Eric Clapton might have temporarily lost his balls cool. Great albums that continued the trend of redefinition and genre introduction came through in 1992.

1. Automatic for the People, R.E.M.
2. Wish, The Cure
3. Check Your Head, Beastie Boys
4. Rage Against The Machine, Rage Against The Machine
5. Grave Dancer's Union, Soul Asylum

Honorable mention: Hollywood Town Hall, The Jayhawks (I really didn't discover it until 93-94); Apollo 18, They Might Be Giants; Our Time in Eden, 10,000 Maniacs; Amused to Death, Roger Waters; The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, The Black Crowes

Funny this series has generated more traffic and emails than anything I've written in the last couple of months...maybe you all just like the 90's that much. I know I did.
