Couldn't be bothered with a fifth, though if pushed would have gone Oasis.

:shock: I know you deal Ray, but I'm surprised by this. Is it because this was the cd age and vinyl was only issued in limited editions?

Issued and consumed in smaller quantities. It breaks my heart to see the current going rate for a lot of LPs from that era that I once owned and sold, loaned out, gave away, etc.

What second hand copies of these cost at, say, Beano 15 years ago vs. what they now go for online...ugh.

DJ Shadow
Pavement
Suede
Tindersticks
Air

Nothing wrong with the Portishead, Oasis and Supergrass selections...Only like some of PJ Harvey (not this one), Super Furry Animals...The best thing about Garbage is that Shirley Manson is cute...

Moon Safari, Entroducing, I Should Co Co, Suede and Dummy.

Gish by Smashing Pumpkins would be my first choice but that's missing.

Yes, it was the era, but it wasn't so much that the vinyl edition was limited as that it didn't sell many copies as everyone bought CDs. I didn't have any way of playing them until I bought a player for my 49th birthday in 1997.
It also helps that by the time I was in my 40s I was well used to the idea of looking after records, what collectors wanted, how important inserts and giveaways were, and so on. Also, by that time I already had several thousand pieces of vinyl and less time to play them, so any albums I bought on spec might get one or two careful plays then get put away. The upshot is that I have quite a lot of rare records – moderately mainstream like those in the poll, or hardcore/weird – in really good condition.
I already sold Dry for 145 (the edition with the free album), Tindersticks for 75, Suede for 40 and the Garbage for 55, while SFA is on at 65 – which, when you add it up, comes to a little bit south of 4 bars, so fair point. But other SFA, Teenage Fanclub, silly money.

Like them all except the dreadful Tindersticks. I chose Suede, Oasis, Air, Pavement and Portishead.

Love Suede and Fuzzz Logic, although Suede is by far the better album, Suedes latest album is absolutely fantastic as well, which was a real surprise, but Brett has really hit his straps and produced something worthy of the first 3 that sounds like a mix of all 3

Dummy I find arid and miso these days but it got a vote,, I should Coco sounds lightweight but it is still fun, definetly maybe got the last vote

I bought SFA's Radiator on Minidisc. Can I retire on the proceeds? :?

It does need to be signed by the band members Dougie. Your mate won't cut it.

Definitely Maybe is the most defining of the 90's whether you like it or not. In Britain and Ireland I mean.

To (y)our demographic. I expect the Spice Girls debut (for example) is more defining to others.

Both acts were essentially nostalgic weren't they?

I never saw the Spice Girls as nostalgic particularly

Oasis, yes, of course.
