I'm gonna be the first to put a more modern album down because it's one of the best albums of the 90s. In fact in 1996 rolling stone magazine voted
these guys the best new rock band of the year. They are my favorite modern band.
Matchbox Twenty: Yourself or Someone Like You. 12 tracks that don't deserve to be skipped over. 5 songs from this album hit the top spots on the
billboard top 40. Not to mention Rob Thomas is one of the greatest songwriters of my generation. Here's a video of Rob singing 3am on piano from
VH1 Storytellers. www.youtube.com...
On a more classic feel, how about the Eagles: Desperado? It's a cool album that goes through to tell a story of the old west. It starts with
"Doolin-Dalton"... a story of two friends in the old southwest and the album ends with the Doolin-Dalton/Desperado reprise as a poker game gone
(just wanted to note that at the time this record was released, when they went on TV they hid their faces, for a few years they would wear masks or
hoods on their entire heads, so unlike everyone else making music at the time, there was no image to be involved, just the music, they still hide
their faces today and you always see them in the robot suits)
