Produced by George Drakoulias. In 1990, southern rock was dead. The Black Criowes changed all of that with their debut album, Shake Your Money Maker. They would go on to make more complex music with Marc Ford on guitar, but on their debut, there's an energy and hunger that is palpable more than it would ever be again. "Stare It Cold", "Twice As Hard", "Seeing Things" are highly ignored parts of their discography, but this album stands as a great beginning for a band that would later be hung with a revolving door of musicians and questionable musical directions. But here, they just rock. [First added to this chart: 04/11/2012]

Produced by Depeche Mode and Flood. Dismissed by many as the band giving in to teen pressure to make a pop album, one listen to this lets you know just how absurd THAT notion is. Violator is dark and perfect, with tracks like "Personal Jesus", "Policy Of Truth", and "Enjoy The Silence". This is Depeche Mode all grown up from the cheap sounding keyboard band they'd been in the past...they were now serious, tuneful and they could also rock more than ever. This stands today as a perfect album. Never get tired of this. [First added to this chart: 10/29/2012]

Produced by Paul Q. Kolderie & Sean Slade. Maybe the single most important alt-country album ever made. The title later became the name of the musical movement it represented, and the music has been an endless inspiration to every alt-country band since. Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy sound like amateurs, their brand of country is puzzling, and nothing sounds like it should work...but every bit of it does. A brilliant, rough as sandpaper and perfect debut album. An absolutely must have. [First added to this chart: 04/11/2012]

Produced by Ed Stasium. Hard to find now in the US...you might have to buy it as an import. This is the follow up to their breakthrough album, Vivid. It does not contain "Cult Of Personality", which may explain why it's not well known. But this is just as good, if not better than, Vivid. Particularly the rollicking "Love Rears Its Ugly Head", the excellent "Elvis Is Dead", and the just as good "Type". Living Colour deserves to be known for much more than "Cult", and a great place to hear just how good they were is right here on Time's Up. A meaningful purchase.

1990-EPIC
Produced By STEFAN KAUFMANN

1. Metal Heart
2. Breaker
3. Screaming For A Love Bite
4. Up To The Limit
5. Living For Tonight
6. Princess Of the Dawn
7. Guitar Solo Wolf
8. Restless And Wild
9. Son Of A Bitch
10. London Leatherboys
11. Love Child
12. Flash Rockin' Man
13. Dogs On Leads
14. Fast As A Shark
15. Balls To The Wall

Ronnie James Dio may be the king of all rock & roll little guys...but don't sleep on Accept's former lead singer, Udo Dirkschneider. He's a tiny guy with a big metal voice. And Accept is one of those rarities from the 80's...a metal band without a single power ballad in sight! Glory BE!

Staying A Life is a live album recorded in Japan in 1985. It's heavy, it's fast, it's all rock & roll. The band strangely recorded all of their songs in English, even though it's evident that it's not their native language. But the power of this German band shines through here...even through an encore performance of 10 minutes worth of "Balls To The Wall". This may be the best way to experience one of the best and heaviest bands of the 80's. A truly heavy rock document. It does run a bit too long, but it's mostly worth it.
