Top Albums by sfweekly.com
itchforkmedia.com, a Minnesota-based music site devoted mainly to indie-centric reviews, recently posted its list of the top 100 albums of the '90s. Insofar as one can trust a collective of list-makers who believe that both Weezer albums are two of the finest platters released in the past decade, locals -- and nearby neighbors -- performed well, taking nine of the slots. The winners (chart position in parentheses): MK Ultra's The Dream Is Over (98), Jawbreaker's 24-Hour Revenge Therapy (61), Red House Painters' Ocean Beach (58), Tom Waits' Mule Variations (57) and Bone Machine (56), American Music Club's Everclear (36), Pavement's Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (10), DJ Shadow's Endtroducing... (7), and Pavement again for Slanted and Enchanted (2).
