The CDP’s Top 150 Albums Of The 90’s (#150-101).

Photobucket

Welcome to Week Three of my three-week retrospectivus of the 1990’s. I’m currently hard at work on my next book, but I still wanted to publish this straight-up, no-frills countdown as a way to keep the CDP fresh throughout the month of July. Don’t take it too seriously; the opinions are my own and I hope you’re at least slightly entertained.

First thing’s first. The only albums considered for the countdown had to be released in America at some point within the decade of the 90’s. I also avoided uber-obscure or hard-to find stuff, and based it as much as I could on my enjoyment of the album at the moment in time when which it aired. Music is a combination of personal preference, personal experience and the precise moment in time when it hit you, so your listening habits will vary. If you have a gripe, sound off in the comments section and let me know.

Enjoy.
