Yeah, I really dont get the hype either...Theres two or three bores on there that I think people only put up with because they either REALLY like the rest of it, or want to agree with every record review website/magazine in existence.

25 : Billy Corgan's Hair

There is a tried and tested method of discovering if a Smashing Pumpkins album you own is worth listening to. You simply look to see if Billy Corgan has hair when he recorded it or not. If he does it's a good album if he didn't it's a shit album.
I can't explain this phenomenon but it works.

So, obviously, I'm very confused how this has become the best album of the 90's.
It is the best album by Radiohead. That cannot be argued. Nowhere has an album been at the top on so many year end lists. It continues to be ranked in the top 10 in so many all time lists. I would like to see what albums you guys think is better than this in the 90's. It should be good for a laugh.

As for 1997...exactly what is better?

Just because critics rank it high, doesnt mean its automatically great.


And as far as better albums in the 90's? Loveless, Crooked Rain, in the aeroplane over the sea, cubist castle, theres more, I mean, OK Computer is a really good album...just very overhyped and definitely not the indisputable best of the 90's

Well personally Spiritualized's Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space and Super Furry Animals Radiator from that year got more plays on my stereo than OK Computer ever did.

And I guess there's also a case to be made for Mogwai's Young Team & The Verve's Urban Hymns by people who like them much more than I do.
