Albums By The Year: 1994

Welcome back to this special retrospective music-posting feature. The gimmick is simple — each week, you post your favorite 25 (or whatever) albums of a given year. We are now moving backwards until we run out of either albums or years.

1994 was great, wasn’t it? i only ever listened to the same stuff everyone else did back then, and i still loved a lot of it. Everything just felt so massively iconic to me at the time, even if i didn’t necessarily enjoy all of it. These are just unexamined biases, but surely someone here will know what i mean
