>Top 40 albums 1991 — 2008

>When Close-Up Magazine celebrated their 100th issue they published a list of their favourite albums released since 1991 (when issue #1 was released). I love lists of all kinds, so of course I had to do one myself.

One rule: One album per band.
Note: The list is only sorted somewhat by genres, otherwise in no particular order.

  1. >Är det bara jag som håller Dynamite som Stina Nordenstams bästa? Tycker den är finfin i sitt gnisslande och skavande.

    Haha! Hade de släppt nåt lika fluffigt och funky som “Freaky Styley” 1991 istället för den mesiga mainstreamskiten “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” så hade de ju lätt varit med! Eller kanske inte.

    “Dynamite” är ju svinbra! Men just “People Are Strange” är fanimej extra speciell.
