International Favourites Week!
Being a seasoned globetrotter who has lived in TWO adjoining countries and visited TWO continents, thank you very much, I’m devoting the next several days to tracks from my favourite ‘90s albums from different parts of the world. (Disclaimer: I’m going with “favourite” and not “best” because there are acknowledged classics from the decade such as “Nevermind” and “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” that I greatly admire and even love hearing on rare occasion but that I hardly ever listen to nowadays.)
I’ll start with my top five American albums from the ‘90s because USA! USA!
5. Bewitched – Luna
4. Car Wheels on a Gravel Road – Lucinda Williams
3. Automatic for the People – R.E.M.
2. Grace – Jeff Buckley
1. Hollywood Town Hall – The Jayhawks (Every track is a beauty, but my fave is “Crowded in the Wings,” also a contender for prettiest song of the decade.)
