Different ClassUnited Kingdom Pulp
One of the more positive side effects of the Britpop hype was that hitherto relatively obscure bands like Pulp could suddenly find pop megastardom. I actually met them backstage when they played the Cambridge Corn Exchange (apart from Jarvis, who, quelle surprise, was surrounded by teenage girls wanting autographs), and unfortunately Candida was about the only person who seemed able to string a coherent sentence together. Regardless, it took nothing from this album, which is still one of Britpop's best.

(What's The Story) Morning Glory?United Kingdom Oasis
That image of Berwick Street you see on the cover? Tinted with nostalgia. That street was *the* place to go for record shops, finding bootlegs and/or rare imports. It's a remnant of a long bygone era, and in fact generally a London that no longer exists courtesy of some extreme gentrification. I can but mourn. In any case, this is the sound of a band utterly confident and about to conquer the world, as well they should. That confidence of course veered way off into unbridled arrogance and famously got the better of them, but it sure was fun while it lasted.

LeftismUnited Kingdom Leftfield
A wonderful marriage of dub, techno, reggae, some African rapping, and, er, John Lydon (just before he veered off into self-parody and ironically became one of the very "boring old farts" he used to rail against in his youth).

The BendsUnited Kingdom Radiohead
When that quite-good band from Oxford that did a really-quite-ok song about alienation (Creep) outed themselves as rock-Gods-in-the-making.

Clouds Taste MetallicUnited States The Flaming Lips
Sometime in late 1995 I had my first part-time job, aged 16, at a fast food outlet which shant be named here. What did I do with my first earnings? Why, I went to Parrots on King Street and spent all of it on records, of course. This one I bought solely because I liked the cover, having absolutely no idea what to expect musically (that was obviously in the days before Wayne Coyne became the avantgarde rock maestro any halfway self-respecting music fan knows him as nowadays), a decision I did not regret one tiny bit.

PostIceland Björk
Similarly to 1997's Homogenic, this feels like an amalgamation of virtually every interesting musical movement of the mid-90s. So good I can even overlook "It's Oh So Quiet", (which I personally find unlistenable, and I don't mean that in the Oh-look-at-what-they-did-there-let-us-stroke-our-chins-Metal Machine Music-type of unlistenable, just unlistenable as in awful). Hyperballad is probably one of the best songs of the entire decade.
