Just like that beetle on the front cover, Mezzanine is creepy, dark, and menacing. But unlike that insect, Massive Attack's 3rd studio album is also damn sexy! Mezzanine seduced me right from the opening bassline of "Angel", and it kept me enthralled right until the end. By the way, "Teardrop" has an excellent B-side called "Euro Zero Zero", which would have fit in perfectly with the rest of the album had Massive Attack chosen to include it.

"If I could choose to be remembered for just one musical document, it would be this. All the early promise and ambition of the band matured in this record as we took the initial vision and stretched it, travelling as far away as possible from the parochial, jingoistic cartoon that was forming in British music at the time." - Brett Anderson, in the liner notes of the 2011 re-issue.

It was released a few weeks before Modern Life Is Rubbish, so I guess that makes this the first great britpop album. With an amazing voice and plenty of swag, I stand firm with my belief that Brett Anderson is the greatest thing that ever happened to this genre. The main album is excellent, and so are the B-sides.

I can only imagine how nerve-racking it was for Radiohead to return to the studio to record the follow-up to OK Computer, which at the time was already being cited as one of the greatest albums of all time by critics, fans, and musicians. Admittedly, I wasn't too fond of Kid A at first, and I disliked how Radiohead had all but abandoned rock music in favour of electronic. It took some time, but Kid A eventually grew on me, and I now think that even OK Computer sounds a bit dated in comparison. Most other bands would have played it safe and recorded OK Computer over and over again with diminishing returns, but not Radiohead.

(What's the Story) Morning Glory might have the better B-sides, but I prefer Definitely Maybe's main album. Oasis had no originality, but unlike some other people, that never bothered me. This is simply an excellent rock album.

The best live album I've ever listened to, and definitive proof that Kurt Cobain sounded just as good (if not better) on stage than he did in the studio. In order to put on a great show, Nirvana didn't need to perform their biggest hits (aside from "Come As You Are"), nor did they need to cover popular songs (aside from "The Man Who Sold the World"). Fun fact: after "Where Did You Sleep Last Night", MTV wanted an encore, but Cobain refused because he didn't think he could top his performance of that song. Can you really blame him?

Have you ever watched a critically acclaimed indie film and wondered why the hell everyone is raving about it? And when you tell someone that you don't like it or that it makes absolutely no sense, they tell you that "you just don't get it"? Upon first listen, Loveless is the musical equivalent of one of those indie films, or at least it was for me. I wasn't familiar with shoegaze at the time, so all I heard were a bunch of distorted guitars and other random noises. Fortunately, it quickly grew on me, and it has now become my favourite album of 1991, ahead of even a certain album with a naked baby on the front cover.

"How come I end up where I started? How come I end up where I went wrong? Won't take my eyes off the ball again. You reel me out then you cut the string."

One of the best album intros I've ever heard. Although Amnesiac and Hail to the Thief were both great albums, In Rainbows is definitely Radiohead's most consistent collection of songs since Kid A. It starts off with the excellent "15 Step", and it never loses any momentum. It also seems to be their most personal album, being comprised mostly of love songs. Thom Yorke is a lot of things, but a romantic? It appears so.

"I almost view Lateralus (and especially "The Grudge") as the counter piece to the entirety of Ænima. Maybe even a brother/sister type of album pairing. Ænima being the ruthless, angry, prick brother. Lateralus being the beautiful, knowledgeable, and engaging sister." - BEA User "AAL2014"

Substance
Compilation
When I create some sort of greatest hits compilation or playlist on my iTunes, I tend to name it "Substance". That should give you a good idea about how much I love this album. While a handful of these tracks were included on their studio albums, their definitive versions are right here. Obviously, the B-sides on Disc 2 can't compete with the phenomenal singles on Disc 1, but you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you ignored songs like "In A Lonely Place", "Hurt", and the instrumental version of "Confusion".

Definitely more 90s focused than most charts you see, but still some wonderful albums and many I haven't heard of and would be interested in checking out. I'm really intrigued by all the K-Pop!
