NME: Best 90s Albums

Postby JR » Tue Feb 28, 2012 4:41 pm

Same deal as the 80s feature. Link probably won't be up for too long, so i copied-and-pasted the titles. This one went deeper- to 109 albums (it erroneously had Fugazi's 1988 Fugazi album with the 90s- I will add it to the 80s list).

JR, don't you think this was meant to be "Repeater"? "Fugazi" is an EP, and would have been an odd choice even if it was listed in the '80s list.

Hmmm... that 13 Songs is included in NME's 500 Greatest Albums list. It doesn't look like Repeater is included in any NME lists, and among 1990s albums, Red Medicine placed on NME's year-end list, but ranked in the 40s.

It very well may have just been a matter of misplacement on NME's part.

Okay...

Did it say "Fugazi - Fugazi (1990)", or what did it look like? Do you remember? Was there an album cover?

Checked the NME 80s thread, and this is the info I took down:

Fugazi - Fugazi (1988)
