The list author says: "This year in music was possibly the strongest of the decade as several important artists release significant albums like Pixies, Pogues, Mekons and Lou Reed. One of the top groups of the nineties, Whiskey Priests unleash their debut and Ian Hunter gets back to basics with his strongest effort in ten years.

YEAR: Key Albums
'1974: Key Albums'
My general music interests include '70s progressive rock, intelligent rock, European folk-rock, alt-country and non-synthesized '80s rock."
"Probably the strongest of the 80s Yes albums. Negatives: Bruford's drumming is uncharacteristically pedestrian. Half of Wakeman's keys are cheezy as all get-out. Did they neuter Levin because he wasn't an official member?"
