My 50 Favorite Albums of the 1990’s 50-46

50. “Tigermilk” by Belle and Sebastian – I love Belle and Sebastian, but I’m going to have to listen to this one a few more times before I like it as much as another one of their albums that may make it onto the list later on. It’s got their signature twee folk/pop style though.
49. “Vauxhall and I” by Morrissey – Morrissey is the lead singer of the 80’s band The Smiths, and this album sounds like a Smith’s album, but without as many standout tracks. Also it’s less 80’s sounding which is a good thing and a bad thing.
48. “New Mother” by Angels of Light – I really like Michael Gira’s dark, relaxing vocals, but the sadness never lets up, and there’s 17 songs on this album.
47. “A Western Harvest Field by Moonlight” by Beck – A lot of people don’t like Beck’s earlier albums because they’re crazy and out-of-tune, but I enjoy them. The song “Lampshade” may be his best song ever.
46. “Weezer (Blue Album)” by Weezer – This one’s a bit of a guilty pleasure because after their first two albums, Weezer died to me. It’s simple and catchy, but there’s something more to it than that: sincerity.
