The Year **1994*** Albums: Chronology and Top 15+

Here's another 1 I just put together, which oddly, was not as deep as I thought. 1994, the year I graduated HS and also the year my favorite album of all-time came out.

1994 seems to be a year that was Top Heavy. The top 5-10 are among if not the best albums of the artist's career. But it gets thin after that I guess.

Here's a ranking.

I do find it cool how Dean Magraw and Jeff Buckley released their 1st albums within days of each other.



The Grays - Ro Sham Bo
Psychotic Waltz - Mosquito
John Scofield and Pat Metheny - I Can See Your House from Here

15. Pushmonkey - Maize
14, Live - Throwing Copper
13. Dean Magraw - Broken Silence
12. Cirque Du Soleil - Alegria
11, Boston - Walk On
10. Tiles - Tiles
9. Atomic Opera - For Madmen Only
8. Fates Warning - Inside Out
7. Pink Floyd - The Division Bell
6. King's X - Dogman
5. Queensryche - Promised Land
4/ Savatage - Handful of Rain
3. Jeff Buckley - Grace
2. Dream Theater - Awake
1. Marillion - Brave

The Year **2000*** Albums: Chronology and Top 20+

In the year 2000..

This entry was created awhile ago I think when I was doing these the Summer of 2015. Anyway, I have thought about this and have wanted to get back into these, and of course the biggest obstacle with them is time. Looking up dates, etc and then writing blurbs.

And what seems like somewhat of a new approach, I think I may be able to expedite them, much like my Albums of the Year countdowns by skipping the Blurbs, at least for now, and just posting the list/calendar/chronology of releases and release dates of those.

Kevin and PoS are the absolute stone cold classics, and there many records from this year from artists who I consider the best album from that artist (Doves, The Flower Kings, Porcupine Tree, etc)

And instead, maybe add in just a Ranking per the below, which is just a guestimation of course.

maybe more will be added later:


Chroma Key - You Go Now
VAST - Music for People
The Appleseed Cast - Mare Vitalis
At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
Ulver - Perdition City
I Can't Believe It's Not Rock - I Can't Believe It's Not Rock (pre-The Dissociatives)
Sculptured - Apollo Ends
Mew - Half the World is Watching


20. Klimt 1918 - Secession Makes Modern Music
19. Steve Stevens - Flamenco A Go-Go
18. Galactic Cowboys - Let It Go
17. The Flower Kings - Space Revolver
16. The New Pornographers - Mass Romantic
15. U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind
14. White Willow - Sacrament
13. Enchant - Juggling Nine or Dropping Ten
12. Doves - Lost Souls
11. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Yr Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven!
10. Spiral Architect - A Skeptics Universe
9. sElf - Gizmodgery
8. King's X - Please Come Home Mr.Bulbous
7. Spock's Beard - V
