  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

    De la Soul out of that lot.

    I was a bit stuck on this one even though I was 19/20 Years old and should have been really up on this year I was exclusively listening to House Music and a bit of Reggae and took absolutely no notice of other music. The list above is pretty much the 10 best selling LP's (I think)

    NO gets my vote. Around the time I also loved the De La Soul + Nirvana albums, The Iceberg/Freedom of Speech ... Just Watch What You Say! - Ice T, The Fall - Seminal Live, and Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique.

    More recently Bonnie Raitt - Nick of Time, and The B-52s - Cosmic Thing have become favourites.

    I know none of those titles well enough to have and opinion ...
  6. The Cure win that poll by miles with Disintegration.
    Its been in my top twenty greatest albums of all time list since the day it was released.
    I probably have more original copies of the Soul ii Soul club classic LPs than anyone really needs but i love em.
    Keep on movin don't stop No.
    Is a life statement.:cool:
  7. Seeker_UK

    Seeker_UK Crumpets. I can hear crumpets.

    From the ones on the list, The Cure with NO coming a close second.

    Kate Bush's The Sensual World is the one most obviously missing from that list.

    The Stone Roses is one of the best debut albums ever and was the soundtrack of the time.

    As with the other Polls please if your favourites are not in the poll please dont feel you have to pick one, state your favourite in a thread and I will manually tally them all up at the end.

  10. Yes I totally agree with that and I'm looking forward to the new album.:cool:
    I heard on the vine they are going to do a prison tour.

    The Stone Roses debut is the obvious one as, with the Happy Monday's Bummed from the preceding year, and several 12" singles it defined the Madchester scene. I'd prefer to pick something more club/techno/electronic though as that is what was really breaking at the time, but it was a 12" culture, not album (all the landmark Warp, Superstition, Harthouse etc albums came out a couple of years layer). The best I can come up with off the top of my head is 808 State's Quadrastate mini-LP on Creed Records as that indicated the direction of travel for sure. Over the next few years 808s, 303s etc were bleeping away in the better clubs across the land. Like many 1989 was the point I jumped ship from indie/rock to electronica, hence my choice here.

    PS I played on an indie album released in 1989 (link)!

    I just trawled through a huge list of '89 releases, a not so good year for me.

  14. This [​IMG] most excellent album should be on the list.
    One must not forget the two excellent Talk Talk albums one just before 1989 and the one just after.:cool:

    Had to look up Melody Maker's albums of the year to remind myself, and it was a good year for me: Young Gods' L'Eau Rouge, Spacemen 3's Playing with Fire, American Music Club's United Kingdom. Can't really decide between those 3. From the poll mebbe Pixies.

    What a lousy year!!! Though for me Pharoah Sanders' "Moon Child" is very much the musical highlight of the year, and still possibly my favourite jazz recording - certainly my most played over the past 27 years.
  17. Seeker_UK

    Seeker_UK Crumpets. I can hear crumpets.

    The only ones I can think of are:

    A Guy Called Gerald - Hot Lemonade
    Coldcut - What's that Noise
    Adamski - Live and Direct
    Baby Ford - Ooo the World of...

    Hi Tony Jactars sounds good funnily enough reminds me of the great My dad is dead's 'The taller you are ' issued in 1989 :)

    1989 a tough year! Of those listed I would plump for The Cure. Outside of the list Neil Young Freedom or perhaps The Blue Nile Hats or Tears for Fears as already mentioned.

    Well, this has prompted me to pop Sensual World on. I haven't listened to this for ages. I am rather enjoying it.
