What Guys Said 8

  • I'd say (in no particular order)

    Metallica - Metallica (1991)
    Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill (1996, or A Vulgar Display of Power in 1992)
    Iron Maiden - Fear Of The Dark (1992)
    Ozzy - No More Tears (1991)
    Creed - Human Clay (1999)

    Say what you will about Scott Stapp, his voice, or his lyrics, but there really can't be any denial that he and Mark Tremonti were an unstoppable songwriting machine. In a time of boy bands, rap-rock, and pop punk (Blink 182... ugh...), Creed made pure, raw rock cool again. My only critiques of Human Clay were there should have been more diversity of theme and tempo (Scott Phillips just sounded like he played the same drum tracks over and over again), but more importantly? Guitar solos. There absolutely should have been more guitar solos.

  • personal faves this is so hard to narrow down

    Weezer - Self titled (The Blue Album) (1994)
    Notorious BIG - Ready To Die (1994)
    Sublime - Self titled (1996)
    The Fugees - The Score (1996)
    Third Eye Blind - Self titled (1997)

    Mariah Carey - Daydreams (1995)

    If it weren't for Grudge kids those albums would be really big. Well Damn Yankees' debut was successful indeed, but it was before Grudge was brought to masses and destroyed anything.
