A Tribe Called Quest - "Midnight Marauders".

I could listen to Electric Relaxation on repeat every night. It's just perfect mellow jazz hip hop...

I nearly went with ATCQ, it was a flip of the coin. 93 was a good year for hip hop

You must be a lot older than me because the early 90's music scene to me was awesome.

I was still at school, coming up to leaving and going onto college.

The air was rife with Nirvana,Manic Street Preachers,Sugar, Fugazi, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Pearl Jam,TAD, Pavement, Babes in Toyland, There were loads of exciting bands to my young self.

And MTV was awesome during the early 90's too.

I guess a lot depends on age. I was 15/16 in 1989/90. And heard 808 State's Pacific. And that was it, I pretty much stopped listening to U2, INXS, Simple Minds, the Smiths etc etc. And house and techno and the whole rave thing was so exciting and happened at exactly the right time. But by the end of the 90s, I didn't like anything, the charts were full of boy bands and garage, the clubs were all playing trance.

I've a couple of years on you, Mountain (I was 20 in '89), but a very similar trajectory. Discovered rave and that was it for a few short, glorious years. And agree, the arse-end of the 90s was f**king grim!!

I was late twenties in the early 90s, grown up with punk, goth and metal, also liked 60s psychedelia and 70s prog, ska and reggae. I hated hip hop and rave stuff, I just thought it was vacuous shite. Grunge was ok, but it lacked the originality and bite of the post punk guitar music from a decade earlier. Highlights at the time were Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey, Massive Attack, Portishead. Very late 90s, early 00s is when music gets interesting again, for me, with post rock and alt country.

I loved the early nineties, and I think 1993 was just about the high-water mark before everything fell away into the late 90's which were a wasteland.

I didn't care much for hip-hop or electronica, but I liked the massive leap in recording technology and sound quality that CDs ushered in at the time. For example, it was interesting to hear the evolution from angry, alienated low-fi Dinosaur Jr on You're Living All Over Me, to J Mascis in the studio with a budget with Where You Been. I always think of Dire Strait's Brothers In Arms as the poster child for digital recording. It was the first record anyone who bought a CD player spun to showcase the technology. By 1993 it was ubiquitous, and we were seeing some interesting results.

This isn't to say I was a huge fan of digital recording. I don't think I had my own CD player until 1994 or so and I still listened to plenty of lo-fi, I know all the lyrics to Guided by Voices' 1993 release, Vampire on Titus, and still remember how to play a few of the tracks from banging around on the guitar while it spun endlessly in my apartment even though it was aggressively low-fi.

Anyway, lots of worthy nominations made in round 1 and so far in round 2. Surprised no one went with the pieces of the Pixies who seem popular on the board. Last Splash and Frank Black were both great records. So were Exile in Guyville, Painful, Anodyne, Saturation, Five Days in July, and On the Mouth.

But I'm gonna go with Kerosene Hat by Cracker. I wasn't sure of the switch from Camper to Cracker at the time. But the sound grew on me and they kept me going through the wasteland of the late 90's.

It's not Frank Black's best solo work imo, but I did consider it. Bluefinger maybe his best solo effort

The change to CDs and digital was one of the things which alienated me from new music in the 90s. I resisted getting a CD player for as long as possible because I didn't like the clinical sound. Neil Young's Ragged Glory and Sleeps With Angels kept me sane. Brothers In Arms was like bleach in the ears!

I was still buying cassette tapes in 1993. I didn't get a CD player until about 1997.

I wasn't a fan of Brothers in Arms either, but it seemed like if you bought a CD player it was included because everyone with a disc player had a copy of the album.

Ha! Not what I would have chosen. My first was Decade, because my LPs were scuffed to hell. But I know you're not a fan of Neil.

Some of us are massive fans of one of the greatest singer/songwriters though.

But you can't put that whiney voiced recording artist (no way I can call him a singer) in that category.... :P :P
