Remember these guys? I've been going through my piles of CDs lately because my harddrive crash caused me to lose about 80% of my iTunes tracks, and found The Lightning Seeds Cloudcuckooland (best.album.name.ever.) rattling around in one of the trays. I popped that sucker in and was immediately transported back to 1990 -- uh, the good parts only -- and remembered why I used to put this shiz on repeat for days on end.
This first track, "All I Want" is some pretty rad stuff, but the whole album kicks some serious UK-indie ass. Among my faves: "Bound in a Nutshell", "Love Explosion" and "Sweet Dreams." And of course their dance-y Billboard hit, "Pure." Retro, head-swaying, sing-along, fun!
What other 90s albums do you still jam to?
