Working the Backlog
There's a lot of stuff people have submitted to the site over the past 8 years that hasn't been reviewed yet. ChuckyG and Red Ant are currently trying to review as much of it as possible. If you'd like to help, check out the request for editors message I posted on inthe00s. I plan on adding more sections to the site and improving what's here once the existing material has been reviewed.

Magnolia (1999)
Worst movie I ever seen. I actually paid to see this in theaters and sat through 2 hours thinking that I paid to see this shit movie it better get good. I was wrong. Tom Cruise, I want my back.

Alien 3 (1992)
Rubbish follow-up to one of the most enjoyable sci-fi/horror/action flicks of all time. Starting the movie by killing two characters whom most movie goers liked was mistake number one. Scenes resembling video game POV shots (supposedly seeing from the Xenomorph point of view) were also not impressive. Pure crap. A bunch of drunk monkeys typing could have done a better job.

Batman & Robin (1997)
Where do I begin? I can see where they tried their best with adapting a film version of this from the comics but it seems like every person involved in the film did care who the audience was. From the Batman suit, the premise of the story, and the acting it was hard to pick which one was the worst part.

An movie where you'll see one actor bite off the other actors toenail, yuck! Their names are not important by the way.

Top Ten Albums List by Grungist
  • 10. Smashing pumpkins, "Mellon collie and the infinite sadness"
    I think this was their last good album before billy corgan sold out (and that he did) but this was a great cd "zero" and "bullet with butterfly wings" are the reigning champs for best songs on this stellar album.
  • 9. Nirvana, "In Utero"
    I personally feel nirvana was highly overrated, especially their "best album nevermind" (even kurt cobain hated it) but I feel this album showed what kurt Dave and kris were all about, since I'm not a huge nirvana fan my favorite song from this album is their most popular song from the album "heart shaped box"
  • 8. Tool, "Aniema"
    I'm actually not a big tool fan, always preferred a perfect circle but this is a very good album and Maynard James Keenan proves he deserves to be recognized as one of the best rock singers of the last 25 years.
  • 7. Stone temple pilots, "Core"
    I always hated the name of the band that I find myself often reffering to them as "STP" as opposed to stone temple pilots, but as stupid as I think the name of the band is the music they produce is the exact opposite, Scott weiland may be referred to by some as a "vedder clone" but I feel Scott's vocals blow eddies out of the water "sex type thing" proves it.
  • 6. Eminem, "Slim Shady LP"
    Yeah I like rap a little bit, I never got into 2pac or biggie to give them props in a top 10 but I happened to like eminem back in the day, this being my personal favorite, as well as my favorite rap album from the 90s
  • 5. Mad Season, "Above"
    Another album people easily forget, more of a bluesy, super rock band, fronted by layne staley, and members of other grunge bands, they put out some of the most emotional/beautiful songs I've ever heard, something that people truly should not forget
  • 4. Mother Love Bone, "Mother Love Bone"
    It's a shame this was the only album they put out, with the unfortunate death of talented singer Andrew wood, it makes me upset because if he didn't die pearl jam wouldn't exist (good thing in my book)
  • 3. Pantera, "Vulgar Display of Power"
    I feel they didn't get enough love on here, but seriously you can't deny dime bag as well as the intense vocals delivered by Phil anselmo, you want to rock out to something before a fight or a hockey game give "live in a hole" a spin.
  • 2. Soundgarden, "Superunknown"
    Honestly i would have put an alice in chains album here but I didn't want to flood the top 5 with albums from the same artist, but that doesn't degrade superunknown from being a work of art, most people only like to talk about "black hole sun" as the best song on the album, but my personal favorites are "fell on black days" "mailman" and "spoon man" great album Cornell is without a doubt the 2nd best singer ever (behind Layne Staley) in my opinion.
  • 1. Alice in Chains, "Dirt"
    I shouldn't have to explain this one, this album changed my life and is to me the most influential albums of the 90s, Layne was not only the best rock singer ever, but also one of the most powerful, emotional and best singers of all time. Favorite songs include "Angry Chair" "Dirt" "Would?" And "Rain when I die".
If I had my way I would put as my top 5 in order: Dirt, Self-titled, jar of flies, facelift, and sap. Yes they are all Alice In Chains albums but what can I say that's my favorite band and I feel the most underrated band of the last 25 years. Pearl jam gets dishonorable mention for being front runners (just trying to fit in with other Seattle bands, look it up) and the album nevermind fits in the overrated category along with rage against the machine, it's funny I've noticed a lot of "huge" nirvana fans only name their hit singles (smells like teen spirit, come as you are, lithium, heart shaped box) when asked their favorite nirvana songs and these are the people who claim nirvana as the best band of the 90s, ha, 3-7 songs don't make a band great, I can every song from every AiC album in order because there's only maybe 2 songs I don't like by them (nothing song, swing on this) everything else ranges from a 7.5 out of 10 to a 10 out of 10. Layne was a far better singer than kurt, kurt even admitted that in an interview. I hate British bands that came after 1980 so oasis and radiohead get no love from this guy.

Top Ten Albums List by Justin C.
  • 10. Megadeth, "Countdown To Extinction"
    This album was one of the best selling releases of the 90's for its scene. Rolling Stone wrote that had this album been released before Metallica's self-titled(Black) album, the two band's fame levels would have been reversed.
  • 9. Smashing Pumpkins, "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness"
    What is there to say about this album or this band? Never a disappointment.
  • 8. Porcupine Tree, "The Sky Moves Sideways"
    A very overlooked band fronted by Steven Wilson, an absolutely brilliant musician, writer and producer.
  • 7. Nine Inch Nails, "Downward Spiral"
    Music had to go somewhere after the death of grunge, and unlike many distorted alternative acts that rose up, Nine Inch Nails came bearing their own variation of rock music with new wave synths.
  • 6. Alice In Chains, "Alice In Chains"
    The self-titled 1995 release by the heavy hitting grunge act was most famous for the three-legged dog on the cover that got it the fan name tripod. This album was to me the most passionate of the groups albums, that I attribute to Layne Staley's ongoing fight with addiction and the toll it had taken by this point.
  • 5. Soundgarden, "Superunkown"
    It's hard to not add an album by Soundgarden to a 90's list. If you lived in the same world I did, Chris Cornell's voice will forever be a symbol of the 90's.
  • 4. Wu-Tang Clan, "Enter The Wu-Tang"
    Who can forget Wu-Tang clan? The group's debut album. Pure energy from start to stop.
  • 3. Sublime, "Sublime"
    The most alternative of Sublime's albums, I believe this qualifies it most for the list, as I believe Alternative music is the biggest symbol of the 90's you'll find. The only surviving relic of the decade... Besides Bill Clinton.
  • 2. Third Eye Blind, "Third Eye Blind"
    The band's debut album. Who'll ever forget Semi-Charmed Life and Jumper. "I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend." is a line engrained in any child of the 90's mind.
  • 1. Pearl Jam, "Ten"
    Pearl Jam, not only is the best selling band of the 90's but their debut album, though slow to sell at first has gone Platinum 14 times since its release and all four singles that came from the album still survive and are played at events to this day.
To me the 90's were a time of narcolepsy. The youth bounced around like a Barenaked Ladies music video, upbeat sounds with lyrical undertones of sadness and confusion. Prozac and Ritalin swept the nation and much of the great musical talent never got the recognition they deserved due to a society that was allowed to stop caring.

Top Ten Albums List by Daniela
  • 10. Pearl Jam, "Ten"
    I'm not really into grunge, but this album is so great it makes me forget about all the stupid grunge movement that had to do with it. Highlights: Alive, Black, Jeremy, Deep.
  • 9. Blur, "Blur"
    for this album they had to make a complete change from the britpop genre, blur were expected to make a trash record... they were all wrong, Blur was back, and better than ever. Highlights: Beetlebum, Song 2, On Your Own, You're So Great, Death of a Party
  • 8. Oasis, "Definitely Maybe"
    Best Debut album in history, It just has so much energy it's incredible. Highlights: Rock n' Roll star, Live Forever, Supersonic, Cigarrates and Alcohol.
  • 7. Bjork, "Homogenic "
    I hated bjork, but this album completly changed my mind, Bjork is one of the most talented and creative persons of the 90s, the album is a mix of more than 5 genres, it's creative and mysterious. Highlights: Hunter, Joga, Bachelorette, All is full of love.
  • 6. Oasis, "Be Here Now"
    This album is the Sgt. Peppers of the 90s, Awesome album with most of the songs more than 5 minutes long, this album has increased in stature since it's realesed as it was critisised. Highlights: D' You Know What I mean? Stand By Me, Don't go away, All Around the world.
  • 5. Radiohed, "OK Computer"
    Radiohead completly went mad with this album, it is a very experimental album and is constantley voted as one of the best of all time, no doubt about it. Highlights: Paranoid Android, Karma Police, No Surprises, The Tourist.
  • 4. Blur, "The Great Escape"
    Blur where so famous at that moment, they where like a boy band, except with talent, but this record didn't stop them from keeping shining since parklife, The Universal is what makes the whole record excell in its beauty. Highlights: Country House, Best Days, The Universal, Charmless Man, Yuko and Hiro.
  • 3. The Verve, "Urban Hymns "
    The Verve is considered to be a One hit wonder with bittersweet Symphony, but this album just proved that theory false, The Verve has always been underrated, this album just defines everything they ever did. Highlights: Bitter Sweet symphony, the drugs don't work, Lucky Man, Come On (Liam Gallagher on backing vocals, just genius)
  • 2. Oasis, "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?"
    Everyone know this album, the most comercially succesful of the 90s to date. Oasis in this album really proved they could be something BIG, This album just proves why I love the 90s. Highlights: Don't Look Back in Anger, Some Might say, Cast no shadow, Champagne supernova.
  • 1. Blur, "13"
    At first this album seemed to be the low point of blur, but this album is a huge grower, you listen to it more than once and it will grow so much on you, Blur is one of the greatest bands in history. Highlights: Tender, Coffee and Tv, Battle, Caramel, No Distance Left to Run.
I love Blur, it was a hard decision putting only 3 albums from them, Modern Life is Rubbish and Parklife are excellent records but I feel like the ones I selected have a special place in my heart.

Korn, ""Korn"" (1994)
Nobody can deny that Korn is one of the angriest bands to ever grace the airwaves and MTV and it all started with this album. The sheer force of the music, the underlying angst in the anger and Jonathan's iconic use of bagpipes in heavy metal make this an album to remember. It's definitely rooted a spot as one of my all-time favorites.

Tears For Fears, "Elemental" (1993)
They were a duo throughout the 80s. After their tour ended in 1990 Curt Smith left. Roland Orzabal was left to carry on the business. He released two albums under the name Tears for Fears in the 90s. 1995's Raoul and the Kings of Spain being the other. The best section of the album is the opening three tracks in my opinion. The only major hit was "Break it Down Again". "Cold" was a minor hit in England. "Goodnight Song" got airplay on Top 40 stations in the US. Title track "Elemental" and its b-side "New Star" got a little bit of airplay on Rock radio thanks in part I believe to KROQ. Tracks: 1. Elemental 5/5 2. Cold (UK #72) 5/5 3. Break it Down Again (US #25, UK#20) 5/5 4. Mr. Pessimist 3.5/5 5. Dog's a Best Friend's Dog 4.5/5 6. Fish Out of Water 5/5 7. Gas Giants 3/5 8. Power 3.5/5 9. Brian Wilson Said 4/5 10. Goodnight Song (US #125) 4.5/5
