    Best Albuma of 1992

    Neil Young - Harvest Moon - Harvest Moon



    REM - Drive - Automatic For The People




    DR Dre - Ain't Nothin' But A G Thang - The Chronic



    * I know the year comes up as 1993 on the Harvest Moon video, but thats due to the song being released in 1993, the album was 1992

    Tough one for me this year as I love Little Earthquakes, Harvest Moon, It's A Shame and Slanted and Enchanted, and either of those albums would have won last year's poll for me. I've gone with the Lemonheads though as I'd probably have gone back to that album more than the others throughout the years.

    Obviously have to base my opinion on albums I've actually heard which resulted in me going for Check your head.

    That said - Pavement's "Slanted and Encanted" has been recommended to me by various people of over years. Just one of those records I never got around to hearing.

    Dishonourable mention for one of the most disappointing albums ever to be released appeared in 1992 which was: Happy Monday's - Yes Please.

    It was the end of Factory records and the Mondays

    I'm going to go with another dead horse ...Let Me Come Over by Buffalo Tom - a record I actually can't bring myself to listen to now. Without going off on an too much of an "Our Tune" 1992 was a well dodgy year for young Lionel. It started well enough with him popping his cherry and very nearly ended with him popping his clogs. I sometimes think Leeds Uniteds pathetic attempt at defending a title and the desire to see them back on form is all that kept him out of a noose or the Lee back then.

    Other LPs of note for me from the year are The Wedding Presents Hit Parade 1 (thought the quality tailed off quite a bit on HP2 ...might just've been me either), Pleasure Death by Therapy?, Casual Sex In the Cineplex by Sultans of Ping FC and The Frank & Walters Trains Boats and Planes.
    " I wish to God that someone would be able to block out the voices in my head for five minutes, the voices that scream, over and over again: "Why do they come to me to die?"

    You made that poll very easy jebus, cheers!
    Really should have had Lazer Guided Melodies in there too but it saved me hours of agonizing.

    Wolfie, get hold of that Pavement LP soon as, you won't regret it.

    Others for the consideration of others who want to vote 'other':
    Babes In Toyland - Fontanelle
    Curve - Doppelganger (used to have the serious hots for Toni Halliday )
    Stereolab - Peng!
    as well as Sonic Youth, Sugar, Manics and Jesus & Mary Chain already mentioned.

    Easy, The Chronic.

    It started a whole new wave of hip hop music and its influence on hip hop in the 16 years since is easy to underestimate. One of the defining albums of hip hop.

    The Lemonheads Its A Shame About Ray for me but Automatic for the people as close second.

    Honourable mentions for Manics Generation Terorists, Therapy's Nurse & Jesus & Mary Chain's Honey's Dead.

    I'd go along with that but REM, Tori & Neil Young are all quality records and are still regulars on the endabob playlist.

    Actually found this the toughest so far, as no real stand out for me but went with REM as that would've been the one I played the most then, and has endured (it got upgraded to CD from Tape somewhere along the line which some of the others didn't).

    On Yes Please - yes it was bad that it was the end of Factory, but i think it's an underated record. Didn't deserve the press it got at the time anyway.
    If you attack me with stupidity, I'll be forced to defend myself with sarcasm.
