    Best Album of 1998

    Here's the picks for this year, videos will go up tomorrow

    Albums that just missed the cut include Pulp, Garbage, Outkast, Marilyn Manson, Mercury Rev, Elliott Smith and Godspeed You Black Emperor.

    A solid, if not spectacular, year for music I feel. For me it's beween Smashing Pumpkins and Air, I may need some time to choose between those two to be fair

    Would be between Air and Mercury Rev for me, with Massive Attack in close attendance. Also, as I've waffled on about elsewhere, Eels, Asian Dub Foundation and Transglobal Underground chipped in with outstanding efforts. And I'd forgot about the Fatboy Slim one, a cracking album too.
    Pish and tish on this average talk, a great year for albums, but Air to win, no question!
    more bass

    Do compilations count? If so, then my vote goes to 'Other', The Beta Band- The Three E.P.'s.

    Judgement call - Beta Band always counts

    Shamefully I completely forgot that that album was released in 1998

    Voted Mezzanine by Massive Attack, a dark masterpiece but with some wonderful moments. And I forgot there were some amazing albums bubbling under. Average year for music? I take it back now. For the silver and bronze, Smashing Pumpkins - Adore, an amazingly beautiful album, and surprisingly Mansun - Six. Took me a good while to get into and even wrote it off on the first few listens. but an under-rated classic. Placebo - Without You Im Nothing in the running too. Mechanical Animals forgot about too.

    Some good choices. Voted for Air, but special mention for Lauren Hill with one of the last great Hip Hop/R'n'B albums

    Do you have a parent or grandparent with a Munster accent Dodge?

    That question was less stupid, though you asked it in a profoundly stupid way.

    Help me, Arthur Murphy, you're my only hope!

    Love-in me hole. I'm off to sulk in the corner.




    Air were a close second alright. And I don't care how that first sentence reads; it's staying.

    Other: 3 EPs - The Beta Band.

    Brilliant brilliant band, and a brilliant, brilliant Album. If it's a compilation, who cares, still the best of the year - they didn't appear on any other album, so I reckon it's in.
    If you attack me with stupidity, I'll be forced to defend myself with sarcasm.

    As good as Pearl Jam's Yield is, I'm going for The Beta Band- The Three E.P.'s.

    I probably should get Mezzanine considering the fact I really like 100th Window and Collected.

    Fairly underwhelming year for music, Brittany Spears, Christina Aquelira etc, Fat Boy Slim just shades it for me.

    I forgot Yield was 1998 - I'm going to change my vote. I listened to that album for 6 months straight when I got it. Still my favourite Pearl Jam album.

    Like the Fatboy Slim, Placebo & Morcheeba

    but I think Embrace " The Good Will Out" gets my vote.

    Other

    OutKast's Aquemini, no contest. My favourite hip hop album of all time.
