Post 90s alternative rock
Really bored today. Time for a new poll!

I've gone for the big 4 of grunge plus Smashing Pumpkins and STP.

This is a tough call. Bleach and Gish are OK records generally. I like Soundgarden's debut, and AIC got off to a strong start with Facelift. But Ten is still to this day Pearl Jam's best album and has a whole slew of classics, so that's what I'm picking this time.

No idea. I saw Alice in Chains at the Titans (not impressed) but other than that, can't really comment. However, I fully support your right to have a poll about grunge! :D

The only one I've heard of those is Bleach. Doesnt STP Core count? That would be my choice.

Pearl Jam followed very closely by Alice in Chains.

I couldn't stand Stone Temple Pilots or Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana were fine but I preferred Nevermind and In Utero by a mile, and Soundgarden didn't grab me until Badmotorfinger.

Ten is pretty cheesy nowadays.

I voted for Bleach

Alice in Chains.

Pearl Jam second. Ten is probably a better album overall than Facelift but I am a sucker for Staley's vocals.

The crystal champagne flute that is 'Gish' in first place.

The cracked and grimy "I Hate Seattle" mug that is 'Bleach' a close second.

While I like Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Soundgarden, I'm not keen on their respective debuts.

Ten for me. Gish in close second - those two have the most replay value for me these days - and Bleach in third (still my favourite Nirvana album). While I'm a big AIC fan, there're at least 3 or 4 lesser tracks on Facelift, reeking of thier glam rock past. But the good stuff's fucking great, and they were phenomenal when touring it (supporting Megadeth on the RIP tour). Soundgarden weren't quite there yet, a bit too... grand? Flashy without the songs to back it up, maybe. Stone Temple Pilots were way too late to the party, Core sounded dated back then, never mind now.

Dated? How could it possibly have sounded dated? It was the right sound for that time, that's why it was so successful in the U.S. It came out around the time time as AIC's Dirt.

Way too late is also another exaggeration that is just repeated ad infinitum/ad nauseum but never questioned. 1992 was the big year for grunge, and Core was released that exact year.

Way too late=bands like Paw

Funny, when it came out my then girlfriend was hugely into it so I heard it a lot, and right from the get-go my thoughts were along the lines of 'And? Heard it all before, totally unoriginal band cashing in on more established grunge acts' success.' Purple has a more consistent sound (less of the 'this is our Pearl Jam song, this is our Alice In Chains song, etc.' vibe) but is quite a bland album, TBH. Never bothered with them after that but my point was that when Core came out it was definitely nothing new, at all.
