Because I was a teenager through the 1990s, my relationship with the decade’s music is a little different; I’d probably appreciate bands like Oasis and Nirvana more if I wasn’t saturated with them. I also think that mainstream rock largely ran out of steam, and the most interesting music is on the fringes or in other genres.

Another issue the 1990s have for albums is the advent of the Compact Disc – CDs allowed for longer running times, when for a lot of bands around 40 minutes is the optimum running time for an album.

Major acts that I enjoy and plan to review include Beck, Massive Attack, PJ Harvey, and The Flaming Lips.
