    I couldn't agree with you more about just about all of this. I love REM up through the Green album, but then with the massive record contract (they signed the biggest record contract in music history at the time, 80 million buck over 5 albums, starting with Green) they changed, because now there's outside pressure to not just record great albums, but albums that will sell...a lot. I generally despise those albums in a whole...there are certain songs on those albums, I love, but they're few and far between.

    With RHCP, I love Mother's Milk and then bits and pieces later on. I find them to be extremely what's the word, because pretentious isn't it...weird...just because...super talented band, no challenge there, but this album in general is "let's write the album that'll appeal to the LCD" or so it seems to me at least, maybe it's just become that over time?

    I think Ribbed is NOFX's last album of their original idea of what the band was. The next two and my favorite of theirs, they tweak their sound just enough to appeal to a more broader fan base. The "Maybe we can have it all" mindset. Write songs we love, but maybe also sell records and sellout shows.

    I think Pearl Jam's debut was way better than anyone, them or their fans expected, because they became a thing for a little while. This is when Vedder was more a character than what he'd later become. He was the spokesman for all the political, defiant against all the "uncool" Ticketmasters, we don't need MTV videos, live your life as you want to...etc..etc...blah...blah. They were so deep under the microscope being the "anti-Nirvana" if that makes sense to anyone, but me? That album is not as important compared to the other ones it's often compared to...one that's about to appear in the last batch.

    White trash is really awesome as well. Tons of classics on it. What i really love about Nofx is that when i was down and out, Nofx lyrics always put a smile on my face. The cleverness in their lyrics and their wide range of songs is awesome. Their albums are different from each other but its still Nofx and you can always tell that when you pop in a new album by them.

    And i have to pass around reputation before i can rep you again for your last sentence.

    I do kind of agree with you on NOFX changing their sound a bit. But id say Ribbed started that. Bad Religion - Suffer started the whole melodic punk style that most of those bands emulated. Like their sound on Heavy Petting Zoo is completely different than Punk in Drublic. But its still in that vein. Theres no denying that Punk in Drublic and Also So Long and Thanks for all the Shoes are what catapulted them into having the fanbase they have today

    I also totally agree with you on Pearl Jam. They got lumped in with Nirvana when they way way better song writers.

    For me anyways, Blood Sugar gets on the list solely for songs like Funky Monks, Sir Psycho Sexy and Apache Rose Peacock. I’ve never really cared for Under the Bridge but that wasn’t enough to stop me from voting for the album.

    Not surprised with what’s left to come considering I’ve voted for both.

    The RHCP album was actually my number 5, not sure if it’ll make a difference or not in its placing on this countdown though.

    I really do enjoy that album, not just for Suck My Kiss and Under The Bridge, but for the songs that Fuji listed. I’ve always been a big fan of RHCP in general tbh.

    The overall point total for it is correct, I just made the mistake of putting #1 over #5.

    Since it's all over but the crying, why not finish it off.


    2nd Place with 210 Points: Metallica - Metallica (Creeping Death #1, Jimmy King #1, Fuji Vice #1, The EC #2, Shock #4)


    Spoiler:





    1st Place with 240 Points: Nirvana - Nevermind (The EC #1, Jimmy King #2, Fuji Vice #2, Wolf Beast #2, Shock #2, indyfan #4, Silk #5)


    Spoiler:




    Well, two albums released about a month and half apart from one another. Metallica changed everything for themselves with the release of their self-titled album. They went from being a pretty big metal band to the band that your Grandmother had heard of. Nirvana with the release of the their second album, put a stake in the ground for all the angst ridden teenagers of the world. Becoming so big, so fast, it would take it's toll on them.

    Both albums are great and I enjoyed them at the time more than I do now but I knew they’d get plenty of love. No issues with those two winning

    While I slightly prefer Ten, there's no doubt Nevermind is one of the best albums ever. I love just about every song on it.

    Love Nevermind but I knew it would smoke almost everything so I left it off.

    Doing this list made me realize that somehow I've never listened to a single Pearl Jam song. Like I saw Eddie Vedder's cameos in Singles and Walk Hard and that one episode of Twin Peaks he's in. That's the closest I've come to anything Pearl Jam.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1991

    Huge Metallica fan, favourite ever band but I'd have to go with Nevermind > Black Album, not sure it would even make my top 3 Metallica albums because I prefer them at different points in their career (still think it's terrific though and has my favourite ever song on it). I remember my mate at school lending me Nevermind a couple years after I started learning drums and it just became an album I would play along to all the time, trying to nail the Breed intro so I could use it in an assessment for music class at school.

    TEN and Gish would of made my list too.

    Never really liked Nirvana or Grunge in General. Definately more of a Metallica fan but The Black Album for me is one of my least favorite albums of theirs.
