1992: Key Albums (Top Release by Saw Doctors)

ds "Lagerd"
The list author says: "I was never a fan of music for the mainstream as dictated by radio, celebrity mags, etc. Simplicity, repetition and hype aren't my bag. Besides there is sooo much superior music out there for the seriously curious. Take this list from '92 for instance; Other than Peter Gabriel and the Black Crowes did any of these artists receive even minimal mainstream promotion that year? I tended to gravitate towards roots rock from the US, England, Ireland, Scotland and Germany. Mark Heard released his final masterpiece before his passing.

"His sole '90s album doesn't quite measure up to his '80s output. This might be the point where is production techniques became even more sparse."
How Can I Sleep

"Some say the Decemberists borrowed judiciously from Neutral Milk Hotel. Could it be that Colin Meloy also listened to Cordelia's Dad?"
