The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails




It should be stated that I'd been listening to NIN (mostly through a friend) for a couple years previous but it wasn't until late 98, early 99 that I added The Downward Spiral to my collection and became kind of obsessed with Reznor's work. While I don't think it's a perfect album (Big Man With a Gun, for instance mars the album for me and quite honestly I'm not a huge fan of Closer, not that it's a bad song but it just feels kind of out of place) but the fact that I loved it so much at the time, that nostalgia factor really brings back that sense of awe I felt as a teenager when I listen to it today, so I gotta go with a 5 star rating.

Rid of Me - PJ Harvey



Another album that I strongly associate with my late teens, PJ Harvey was someone I'd become aware of mostly through Nick Cave's Murder Ballads but I'd no idea she'd released an album this good. For me I haven't heard a early 90's alternative rock album that's better, it smashes that vast majority of stuff that was coming out of Seattle around that time in my opinion. Albini's production may not be to everybodies taste but for me it was completely befitting the rawness of the music and its emotional impact, and for my money Polly Jean has never sounded better.

The Holy Bible - Manic Street Preachers




During my teen years The Manics were at their commercial peak with the release of Everything Must Go and This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours and to be honest while I appreciated their musicianship I found them extremely dull. Then I watched a BBC documentary on the band and I found out their early nineties material really appealed to my taste as a seventeen year old. I was basically looking for dark, depressing rock music (this was right at the heart of my angst-ridden pretentious teen stage, I wrote poetry and everything) and I found The Holy Bible with its lyrical content mostly driven by missing (presumed dead) guitarist Richey Edwards certainly fit the bill.

October Rust - Type O Negative




October Rust was another one of those albums that I was very familiar with for a long time before I actually added it to my collection. A brilliant release, their most atmospheric and melodic, it's one of those albums where I think the lesser known tracks are actually superior to the better known ones. I gotta give it five stars, it's just another one of those albums paramount to the soundtrack of my late teens and I can listen back with as much enjoyment as I had for it back in the day.

Ænima - Tool


And once again yet another one of those albums I was very familiar with throughout my late teens but I didn't add to my collection until 99 (I managed to get it for a discount student price from some music festival). An absolute classic, I became an avid devotee to Tool for the next few years, with plenty of kids coming up to me and saying "ah you're a tool are you? Heh, heh,heh, heh...heh, heh, heh...heh". When I wore a Tool shirt. No they're a band. Philistine.

... But yes I am a tool.

Disintegration - The Cure


Another one of those albums that really appealed to my tastes as a hyper-maudlin teen, I would listen to Disintegration at 1 AM while smoking roll-ups and feeling sorry for myself. Though I still appreciate the atmospheric music I have to admit nowadays Smith's voice really grates on me..My first CD copy was stolen by a bitchy ex-friend, who refused to return it when it after we split. Oh the irony.

The Fragile - Nine Inch Nails




The peak of my NIN obsession was around the release of The Fragile, I went to see the band a couple of times while touring this release and overall I have very fond memories of that period of my life. There's some fantastic material on here, though frankly there's a bunch of filler across the two discs too, but the good stuff makes up for it, especially the brilliant...

Mezzanine - Massive Attack


I actually came to Massive Attack pretty cold, I think perhaps I'd seen one of their cool music videos, but I basically bought Mezzanine because I thought the art was cool, indeed the music was pretty damn cool too. This expanded my tastes further by embracing trip-hop.
