Top Albums of the 90's - 1994 (part 2)

Ultimos' Top 69 Albums of the 1990's - 1994 (part 2)

Guided By Voices - Bee Thousand (June 21)
Bee Thousand
First heard in 1997

The first time I heard GBV I pretty much thought it was horrible, and then I quickly grew to love it. Then I forgot about it for a good ten years or so, checked it out and pretty much went through the same process.
♫: Tractor Rape Chain

Jeff Buckley - Grace (August 23)
First heard in 2006

My step mom was pretty big into Buckley in the early 2000's, and she eventually convinced me to check him out. He only released one album before kicking the bucket and it's awesome.
♫: Last Goodbye

Notorious B.I.G. - Ready To Die (September 13)
Ready To Die
First heard in 2010

If you had told me in the mid-nineties that I would have loved this guy's music in 15 years, I would have laughed my ass off.
♫: Juicy

Nirvana - Unplugged In New York (November 1)
Unplugged In New York
First heard in 1994

Unplugged In New York is Nirvana's best album.
♫: Where Did You Sleep Last Night

Ramones - Acid Eaters (December)
Acid Eaters
First heard in 1996

The Ramones never really took a break from making music until they retired, but they did take a break from writing original songs for this one. It's a collection of covers to 60's songs, and I've grown to appreciate it over the years as I've heard the original versions and recognized them from this. It also doesn't seem to be just a cover album, but a glimpse of the less-obvious influences to the original Punk band.
♫: Journey To The Center Of The Mind
