I was going through a bunch of my old music and decided to do a list of the top 40 albums of my teen years. I only picked ones that were released when I was 13-18. I also only listed each artist once. If they happened to release two during that period I picked their best. My years were 1992-1997. Which sucks because for me the greatest year of music release was 1991 (Temple of the Dog, Ten, Nevermind, Black Album.) Would any of these be on your list? What would your list look like? The only order these are in is year released.

1. Alice in Chains Dirt 1992
2. Pantera Vulgar Display of Power 1992
3. Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine 1992

5. Sublime 40OZ To Freedom 1992
6. Stone Temple Pilots Core 1992

What do you mean where did I get my data from. This is a created list of my personal top albums. Not the actual top ones.

My equivalent years. No Bowie on the list, only because my favourite albums of his were earlier. Similarly Hendrix and all sorts of other greats. I tried not to be revisionist ie not to add albums I grew to like later. By 1975 I was paying more attention to soul singles as that was what I was djing so not as many albums on the list. 1970 I was probably still into the charts a bit.

Black Sabbath - Paranoid (1970)
Jethro Tull - Aqualung (1971)

I had a real love hate relationship with Jane's Addiction and RHCP during my youth. It wasn't until I was older that I really appreciated them.
