A Guy Called Gerald's Black Secret Technology sounds strange to me in the moment but also it is kind of amazing

Really fancied listening to Black Secret Technology on my way home from work the other day but sadly it's not on Spotify.

This is the first of these lists where I actually heard several (i.e. more than two) of the albums during the year in question - at the time I would have voted for the Chemical Brothers (I got that and the Goldie album on CD for Xmas).

by the way out of the list i posted i want to specifically go out of my way to promote "black belt in boogie", wherein erstwhile Black Oak Arkansas imitators Raging Slab decided to go all-in on the Captain Beefheart sound. rick rubin refused to release it, and they released a revamped version (which is nearly as good) the next year. i cannot overstate how much i love this record; it's one of my most-listened to albums.

lots of great hip hop on this set, the Big L record is fantastic. Went Raekwon in the end.

Critics slagged off the jazzbo bits of "Timeless" but tracks like "Sea of Tears" are gorgeous imo. I hope the album gets a good few votes

cracking album, saw a bit of Goldie live at t in the park 96 playing this album

Wow, I must have been bored to tears or sleeping that year. Of that stuff, I think only the rap stuff would be stuff I would listen to now. I need to think...

Sea Of Tears is pretty great isn't it. Timeless was my first impulse here.

Is The Great Escape the most 'has aged terribly' record ever?

didn't people think that in 1996?

I remember a Melody Maker review declaring it a masterpiece

The World According To.... (Michael B), Monday, 5 August 2019 12:12 (seven months ago) link

I remember Melody Maker giving Catatonia album of the year and liking Suede's Head Music. MM went downhill pretty fast

Look at all those good albums. What a good year.

Voting Black Grape just to be contrary.

I missed To Bring You My Love on my first readthrough, which was the first PJ Harvey album I outright loved

brigadier pudding (DJP), Monday, 5 August 2019 16:28 (seven months ago) link

the black grape album deserves votes s its a really great album and the best album Shaun Ryder made imo

TBYML, Maxinquaye, and Pure Phase are hard to pick from.
