Re: Songs and Albums of 1997 Poll

Crazy, crazy year with my 2 favorite albums of all time, another staple of my top 10, 2 within the 20-25 range, 4 more I’d put in my top 100 (and one that’d get pretty close) and about 10 more I’d consider for my top 200. Let’s Get Killed would have possibly made the bottom of my top 15 in half of the years of the decade.

1) Built to Spill - Perfect From Now On
2) Elliott Smith - Either/Or
3) IAM - L'école du Micro d'Argent
4) Radiohead - OK Computer
5) Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
6) Mogwai - Young Team
7) Sleater-Kinney - Dig Me Out
8) Blink-182 - Dude Ranch
9) Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape
10) Labradford - Mi Media Naranja
11) Nobuo Uematsu - Final Fantasy VII Original Soundtrack
12) Björk - Homogenic
13) Portishead - Portishead
14) The Chemical Brothers - Dig Your Own Hole
15) Biosphere – Substrata

16) Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space
17) Prodigy - The Fat of the Land
18) Grandaddy - Under the Western Freeway
19) Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One
20) Godspeed You! Black Emperor - f#a#∞
21) Wu-Tang Clan - Wu-Tang Forever
22) Robert Wyatt - Shleep
23) Jurassic 5 - EP/LP/CD
24) Millencolin - For Monkeys
25) Smog - Red Apple Falls
26) Laika - Sounds of the Satellites
27) Cornershop - When I Was Born for the 7th Time
28) Stereolab - Dots and Loops
29) Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen
30) Supergrass - In It For the Money
31) Erykah Badu - Baduizm
32) Buena Vista Social Club - Buena Vista Social Club
33) Super Furry Animals - Radiator
34) Mouse on Mars - Autoditacker
35) David Holmes - Let's Get Killed

Made me realize I forgot to include Biosphere – Poa Alpina in my songs list (here and all time), though here it would have fallen around the 30th spot so no biggy.

1. The Verve – Bitter Sweet Symphony
2. Bob Dylan – Trying To Get to Heaven
3. Radiohead – No Surprises
4. Sleater-Kinney – Words and Guitars

13. Bob Dylan – Highlands
14. Radiohead – Exit Music (For a Film)
15. Sleater-Kinney – Buy Her Candy

This is indeed a great year and I'm somewhat frustrated that the limited room ended up being filled by so much Dylan and Radiohead, as well as two Sleater-Kinney songs. There were other deserving songs, but I have to admit that Time Out of Mind and OK Computer just mean a lot to me.

That album list is so on point. 97 was such a good year. And so happy for Ladies and Gentlemen We arw Floating in Space and Dry the Rain on the songs side. I don't see either of them doing quite as well in the all time poll, but maybe they'll do better in this poll.

Well, now I feel like a heel for not scraping together a top 5 albums list, the last year of the '90s that I could have conceivably done so (although I never know if I'm going to bolster something that's already popular, like "Between the Bars," or help make the save, like with "Hypnotize." Where'd all of Time out of Mind's voters from last time go?)
