Exile in Guyville - Liz Phair - 1993


Never Said

Soap Star Joe

F-k and Run

Divorce Song

Before their was Lilith Fair, there was Liz Phair, and Exile in Guyville, a one woman manifesto on female sexuality and the place of women in rock music and the world. Exile in Guyville gave women everywhere a voice not yet heard, and a stern warning that chicks belong in rock and roll right at the forefront, being loud and making music as good as any boy.

Warning - if you choose to listen to more songs on your own, be prepared for adult language. Liz is pretty frank in her lyrics ;)

Monster - R.E.M. - 1994


What's the Frequency Kenneth

Crush with Eyeliner


Bang and Blame

R.E.M. is my favorite band of all time and has been for 18 years. I could have chosen any one of the five albums they released in the 90s, but I chose Monster because, with heavy feedback and searing guitars, it served as a departure from R.E.M.'s usual sound.

Two albums from opposite sides of my tastes in music. One was a very classic artist, one was a very new artist. Both albums contain songs (very important songs) that are meaningful and eloquent, and speak to different parts of me for very different (but very important) reasons.

You are NOT a nerd because you followed the instructions. Thank you Shannon, I really appreciate the fact that you did. I should have done it, and so should everyone else (but we can't force anyone to). The idea is to find out why you're nominating a particular album (hopefully it's not only because you feel that it could be a winner).

That being said .... I'm going to edit my info into my nominations. :P
