Albums Of The Year - Roundtable

Release year

We revisit the albums of '99, discuss hidden gems, forgotten flops, and long lasting favorites from the last year of the 20th century

Author & Special Guests

The release of Nirvana's album Nevermind in 1991 shaped the musical landscape of the 1990s in numerous ways, but 1999 may be the year that truly upended everything. Along with our favorite albums, our hidden gems, our late discoveries, and our long forgottens, we also dig into the year that foretold the re-emergence and dominance of pop music that has never been challenged since, the year that gave us Napster, the return of Woodstock, the rise of Nu-Metal and Rap-Rock, and much more.
