How could I forget these two beauties? I'll have to go and listen to these now to refresh my memory. I remember My Wave (Superunknown) being awesome. Also remember listen to Killing In The Name at extremely low volumes so Mum couldn't hear the "~@#$ you I won't do as you tell me" part... what a rebel!!! :roll:
Hopefully, you will get the same experience I get when listening to those two albums.....each time the opening riff of a track kicks in, you just kind of go "oh yeah!" and start nodding your head uncontrollably (or I might just be a bit odd!)

tbh, i still haven't bought Trial By Fire yet, its on my 'to buy' list. I've gone a bit JOURNEY mad at the mo. and the 2001 dvd is just awesome. wish i could have gone this year, now.
It isn't a fave of the existing band members as it is far to ballady, SteveP not being game for much rockin'. Does have the Grammy nom'd 'When You Love A Woman', though, which is really rather good. :)

Have you got their 80's release 'Dream, After Dream'? If not, I would warn you that, by Journey standards, it isn't very good. It's a Journey album with difference - a collaboration with a Japanese classical orchestra. I've only seen it available in Japan, where I got my copy.

And, YES, you should have found the time to go see this year! :D

"Beautiful ones" a highlight for me.

Best to forget about Head Music by "London" Suede though, eh?
I seem to remember the NME giving it 8 out of 10, and calling it a great come back. I have abused my brian alot though in the interveining 12 years (yep, that long ago since the summer of Trash!).
I think that coming up was a little bit 'meh'. Either Suede or Dog Man Star for me to be honest. Richard Oakes just wasnt Bernard Butler.

Head Music was voted album of the year in Melody Maker. And then it folded. Hmmm.

This is probably the most difficult of them all. The 90s gave way to a lot of stuff that passed me by, and to this day I still don't like really. I never liked Britpop.

During the 90's I was discovering Blues, Motown and Soul.

Although, during the late 90's I started to get in to bands like Blink 182 and Green Day. Anyway, here's my list.

Unplugged - Eric Clapton
On How Life Is - Macy Gray
Whatever And Ever Amen - Ben Folds Five
Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morissette
Flaming Pie - Paul McCartney

Other notables go to

A Rose Is Still A Rose - Aretha Franklin
Pilgrim - Eric Clapton
From The Cradle - Eric Clapton
Run Devil Run - Paul McCartney
Time Out Of Mind - Bob Dylan
Ben Folds Five - Ben Folds Five
Innuendo - Queen
Automatic For The People - REM
Different Class - Pulp
OK Computer - Radiohead
The Bends - Radiohead
Park Life - Blur
Enema Of The State - Blink 182
Dookie - Green Day

* - Re-jigged my Top 5 a little!

Ok a lot of my choices have been mentioned Pink Floyd Division Bell, Prodigy, U2, Guns N Roses being several so here are some of my other choices. They are a little mixed but they soundtracked my life in one way or another!

In no order;

1) The Omen (1994) - Magic Affair

2) In Utero (1993) - Nirvana - Prefer this to Nevermind though that is critically the best album of the 90's.

3) Dance Hits 93 (1993) - Cookie Jar Compilation

4) Ima - BT (1995)

5) Keep The Faith (1992) - Bon Jovi

Bonus one!

Bladerunner soundtrack (1994) - Vangelis - Was finally released!!

You're kidding, right?
I think that albums really underrated, i didnt choose their first album as it was late 80's, Second coming has some brilliant tunes on it, Ten storey love song i love, Begging You is a classic and i've got a fair few other favourites on there, love the sound of it.

Its no way as bad as people make out it is

I was wondering when you were going to spot that!

Well after your 5 faves, and seeing as our musical taste appears fairly similar, I spotted Second Coming in a charity shop, so took the plunge (£1.00!) and bought it.

Must say it's a lot better than I remember so I stand corrected. It's a mess I'm sure you'll agree, but a glorious mess!
