    The early 90s ... and the Boo Radleys ... and Giant Steps

    One of the classics of the 90s, hasn't really aged badly at all in my mind, just as good as ever. 1993 was a great year, kind of the time when the music started to get really good again. And this was one of the reasons why. It's melodic pop music at the core, but adventurous and far-reaching with a lot of interesting excursions along the way, nice vocals and harmonies, layered guitars and effects, and as a bonus it has solid production and pretty good sound too, which as you know was not a characteristic of most britpop. Fun on headphones too.

    Edit: I was just checking around and there is a deluxe edition boxset for this thing now. Wow, 3-CD set, and it was a pretty long CD to begin with. Usually a waste in my experience, especially with the highly compressed and loud remastering that usually comes with it, but may have to check this out ... [sic] Magazine: The Boo Radleys - Giant Steps, Deluxe Edition







    Maybe we could have a little series on the early 90s and start listing some of our favorites. Some other 1993 favorites that I still listen to ...

    Mazzy Star - So Tonight That I Might See
    PJ Harvey - Rid of Me
    Tindersticks - Tindersticks I
    Catherine Wheel - Chrome
    Girls Against Boys - Venus Luxure No 1 Baby
    Dead Can Dance - Into the Labyrinth
    Morphine - Cure for Pain
    Yo La Tengo - Painful
    Lisa Germano - Happiness
    Walkabouts - Satisfied Mind
    Slowdive - Souvlaki

    1993 albums I remember (I remembered the albums but had to double-check the release dates):

    Dinosaur Jr - Where You Been
    Babes in Toyland - Painkillers (ep)
    Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle
    Belly - Starr
    Radiohead - Pablo Honey
    The Cranberries - Everybody Else . . .
    Lenny Kravitz - Are You Gonna Go My Way
    Porno for Pyros - s/t
    Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dreams
    Cracker - Kerosene Hat
    The Breeders - Last Splash
    Nirvana - In Utero
    The Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen
    Stereo Lab released an EP and a full-length that I discovered later

    Except for 2 or 3, I still listen to at least a couple of tracks from each on occasion. In fact, I listened to Doggystyle and Siamese Dream recently and tracks from others are on comps/playlists for the road.
