If you've been paying attention, a little over a month ago I posted my Top 10 lists from the last 10 years. I love lists, and I love favorites. The thing about those lists is I posted them as they were at the time. Well now, finally, I am going to post my Top 10 album lists for every year I have been listening to music. Using the help of iTunes, I have grouped all my favorite albums into years.
I am going to start with 1991. I didn't listen to much music in 1991, but if I did, it was probably Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant and Petra. I didn't truly discover great music until 1993. So what is funny about this is list is that most all of these albums I was not aware of at the time. And the albums I was aware of (U2 and R.E.M.) I had only heard the radio singles. I have just revised this list for the second time because I keep getting release dates confused. I will be sure to get accurate dates before I post my 1992 list. (I originally thought Mortal-Lusis was 1991 [it was 1992] and I had My Bloody Valentine-Loveless for 1992 [it was released in 1991].)
Top 10 Albums of 1991:
For some reason I always thought this album came out in 1992, but not that I would have known since I didn't hear it until 10 years later. I found it stunning when I did first hear it, and finally understood where shoegazer music came from. Revolutionary.
