Re: Recommendation Thread: The Best Albums and Songs of the

1991 had more depth than 1990 IMHO. Apart from all the classics on AM there were excellent albums from outside the US and UK. I second Henrik's recommendations of Element of Crime 's Damals hinterm Mond and Stina Nordenstam 's Memories of a Color . For those who like African music, Ali Farka Touré '...

It really is a pity this song wasn't nominated for the Foreign World Cup. It would've done well.

Re: Forum Poll: The Best Albums and Songs of 1990

Wow... a lot of rock / noise rock / hard rock / metal in these lists (and in the 90s recommendations thread). I usually like a bit of rock myself, but 1990 is such a wonderfully varied year in music. There's no reason why rock should overwhelm everything else. So here's a reminder to everyone that t...

Some people might find this thread from the old forum useful for our 90s polls. Madredeus' "O pastor" only made my top 15 songs list because of a recommendation by Miguel.
