Andy Dolan's favorite album.
Andy Dolan's Top 10 Albums
1. Rollerskate Skinny, "Shoulder
Voices"
2. Bark Psychosis, "Hex"
3. Gastr Del Sol, "Crookt, Crackt, or
Fly"
4. Orbital, "Snivelisation"
5. Bark Psychosis, "Independency"
@6. Tsunami, "The Heart's Tremolo"
7. Pavement, "Crooked Rain, Crooked
Rain"
8. Orb, "Live '93"
9. Stereolab, "Mars Audiac Quintet"
10. Cranes, "Loved"
Jennifer Buckley's Top 10
Albums
1. REM, "Monster." Survival through
reinvention. Achtung, Michael. Bril-
*iant.
2. Hole, "Live Through This." Kurt
may not have, but Courtney certainly
did, with a howling vengeance. And
we are a better world for it.
3. Freedy Johnston, "This Perfect
World." Gorgeous pop vignettes
strung together like a pearl necklace.
Each and every bead is priceless.
4. Come, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Devastatingly, insidiously beautiful.
5. Liz Phair,"Whip-Smart." Not quite
"Exile in Guyvillie," but it has brains,
beauty, and considerably more elec-
tric brawn ("Supernova," "Jealousy")
than her debut.
6. Guided By Voices, "Bee Thou-
sand." Kind of like the Beatles with a

vacuum cleaner running in the back-
ground.
7. Pavement, "Crooked Rain, Crooked
Rain." Sloppy genius of Stockdon
slackerdom.
8. Luscious Jackson,"Natural Ingre-
dients." So you say you wanna party?
Well, then, let yourself get down.
9. Sugar,"File Under: Easy Listen-
ing." Bob Mould is NOT deaf.
10. Afghan Whigs, "Gentlemen."
Breaking up is never easy to do.
"Gentlemen"'s songs are the nastiest
excerpts on CD. And you thought
Ohio was a cultural abyss!
David Cook's Top 10 Albums
Beastie Boys, "Ill Communication"
Helmet, "Betty"
Gonzalo Rubalcaba, "Diz"
Black Crowes, "Amorica"
James Carter, "JC On The Set"
Superchunk, "Foolish"
Dada, "American Highway Flower"
Green Day, "Dookie"
Soundgarden, "Superunknown"
Brand New Heavies, "Brother Sister"
Mark Carlson's Top 10 Albums
- 1. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones,
"Question The Answers." So good ,I
could tell you, but then I'd have to kill
you.
2. Big Chief, "Platinum Jive."
Home town boys make good and pre-
pare to rock the shit out of the rest of
of the world.
3. Seal, "Seal." Wow.
4. Nine Inch Nails, "The Down-
ward Spiral." Oooh, scary.
5. Bad Religion, "Stranger Than
Fiction." In a day of punk rock mania,
these guys still rock harder than any-
one. A consistently good album from
a consistently good band.
6. Smashing Pumpkins, "Pisces
Iscariot." Yeah, it's just b-sides, but
the Pumpkins prove here that even
their throwaways are great.
7. Sunny Day Real Estate, "Diary"
8. Prince, "Come." O.K., so he's
having some problems relating to the
human race, but this is still a great
album. Besides his "royal" vocals,
Come is full of great horns, organs,
and other, er, embellishments.

9. Pearl Jam, "Vitalogy." A per-
fect example of what they can do if
they stop trying so hard to be cool,
and just rock out.
10. Blues Traveler, "Four." Ev-
eryone spends all their time drooling
over band leader John Popper's.har-
monica playing, but people tend to
forget that he is also one of the best
rock singer/lyricists around right now.
Kirk J. Miller's Top 10 Albums
1. Bad Religion, "Stranger Than Fic-
tion." Bad Religion win almost in
spite of themselves; their lead singer
is an idiot, their best songwriter and
lead guitarist just quit, and they re-
made an old song of theirs to get a hit
(much like Whitesnake did in the
'80s). But hey, that doesn't mean the
album isn't catchy, fast and well-
produced.
2. Cop Shoot Cop, "Release"

6. The Beatles, "Live At The BBC"
7. Morrissey, "Vauxhall and I"
8. (three-way tie) Primal Scream,
"Give Out But Don't Give Up"
The Black Crowes, "Amorica"
The Rolling Stones, "Voodoo
Lounge"
Tom Erlewine's Top 10 Albums

Crooked Rain"
2. Nirvana, "MTV Unplugged in
New York"
3. Oasis, "Definitely Maybe"
4. Neil Young, "Sleeps with An-
gels"
5. Nick Lowe, "The Impossible Bird"
6. The Black Crowes, "Amorica"
7. Morrissey, "Vauxhall and I"
8. Suede, "Dog Man Star"
9. Sugar, "File Under Easy Listen-
ing"
10. Liz Phair, "Whip-Smart"

11. R.E.M.. "Monster"
12. Blur, "Parklife"
13. Portishead, "Dummy"
14. Frank Black, "Teenager of the
Year"
Brian A. Gnatt's Top 10 Albums
1. Hole, "Live Through This"
2. Green Day, "Dookie," Middle
school girls may really dig it, but it is
a great album.
3. Bad Religion, "Stranger Than Fic-
tion"
4. Velocity Girl, "Simpatico"
5. Mighty Mighty Bosstones, "Ques-
tion The Answers"
6. Soundgarden, "Superunknown"
7. Rancid, "Let's Go." Bro of Billie
Joe from Green Day. Wouldn't you
love to see their parents?
8. Mark Lanegan, "Whiskey For The
Holy Ghost." Screaming Trees guy
doing great mellow shit.
9. Black Crowes, "Amorica." God
bless it.
10. Black Train Jack, "You're Not
Alone"

The Black Crowes are surprising.
Karl Jones' Top Ten Albums

ents"
