At the risk of sounding my age, music today just isn't the same. Back in my day (that's right, I'm veering into this swerve now) music felt more personal, more real...like it was about something. The 90's in particular was a golden age for music as Rock bands roamed the earth filling our ear drums with their beautiful noise.
It was a peak time for rock music and a time when so many sub-genres emerged to fill the landscape with joyous variety; Nu-Metal, Grunge, whatever Tool consider themselves. The 90's was incomparable in it's music and is still rightfully remembered by many of a certain age (myself included) as a golden era.
So many great bands emerged or garnered the recognition they deserved in the 90's and put themselves on the map with their finest albums to date throughout the decade. Whether these albums were their first efforts or just the one when they finally managed to nail down the sound they would become so famous for, they were all a huge landmark moment for these bands.
