Best Albums of 2002 NON Hip-Hop
« on: December 09, 2002, 05:04:06 PM »
What else have y'all been bumpin...here is what I think was the tightest this year...

"Gutterflower" - Goo Goo Dolls
This is a good album, not as good as their last, but I like the opening track, "Think About Me" and "Here Is Gone" the best.

"Instant Vintage" - Raphael Saddiq
Saadiq came up with a new sound.  Every song on this LP is good.  Fav joint is "Tick Tock."

"The Rising" - Bruce Springsteen
First album to really adress 9/11.  It's got some uplifting tracks, and some reflective/meloncholy ones.  Fav song is "Nothing Man."

"October Road" - James Taylor
Taylor brings back the acoustic rock one smore.  Good music to chill and reflect too.  Fav song is "On The 4th of July."

"Up" - Peter Gabriel
This guy makes great music.  A lot of world sounding beats with interesting lyrics.  "No Way Out" is a great song.

"Justified" - Justin Timberlake
Hot record to bump @ parties and to dance to.  Beats are hot, and so are the vocals.  I like the first single the best.


So there you go.  A lot of music coming from the West wasn't hot.  These releases were great.  I suggest you peep some of these songs/albums.

Cee ya

I don't remember if this album was released in 2001 or 2002 but if it was released in 2002 then i'd  say pod-satellite.
about one of the only rock albums i can bump.

I'll be thinking about the other ones and i'll post them later.

I made a post other places that expressed my feelings that most music sucks that's out right now.  Honestly, I ain't bought most sh*t out this year, I thought most of it was trash.  I haven't heard a cd in a few years now that just BLEW me away, and I thought was great all the way through... the last one might have been Dre's 2001... but non hiphop, the ones that get honorable mention this year, LOL are

Oasis - Heathen Chemistry - one of the ONLY good rock bands out right now... and this album wasn't even really up to their level, but it was better than the crap they're rotating on mtv right now.  You can easily listen to the whole album, straight through, all the songs are good, but only a few tracks will go down in history or anything.

That Glen Phillips album - can't remember the name of it, but Glen used to be lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket.  It's good quality music, check out "Fred Myers" online or something, good stuff.

Paul McCartney - Back in the U.S. - live album, and almost everythign on it was previously released beatles songs and things, but man, every friekin' song was hot as hell, and paul, at 60, can still sing better than most people alive.  His basslines are legendary, and the band he got together was great.  Hearing 30,000 people sing along to a song is always amazing, too.

Doh! I forgot to mention, No Doubt's album, "Rock Steady", these guys (and a girl) are STILL making good music, are STILL making refreshing lyrics, and 35 years after John Lennon said "You know, there's only 7 notes" are still finding creative ways to arrange those notes.

and BTW, I haven't checked out that peter Gabriel, nor the James taylor album yet, Murrow, but knowing them, I'm sure both were good.  The Raphael Saadiq album is pretty good, but not my favorite of the year.  Peace~

Red Hot Chili Peppers - By The Way

Everyone should own this album! The music and lyrics are unlike any rock music coming out right now, its a very melodic, feel-good record. You can hear so many diverse influences but the album sounds like a full complete album, not just a collection of songs. Check it out.


I also liked the new Coldplay album Rush Of Blood To The Head and the Nirvana Hits CD. Apart from those most of the music I got was rap.

I"ll concede to your opinion, too.  The nirvana album of course is great... Chili Peppers are another of the few decent bands out, even though I don't own the cd, and Coldplay is one of the promising bands that are newer.  My favorite song of theres is "See you Soon" and I really dig "Beautiful World"... most of their stuff is awesome.  Great voice.

I haven't really bought anything outside hip-hop except for Truth's debut, oh and I bought another copy of Alicia Key's "Songs In A Minor", the one with the remixes. Other than that all i've bought has been hip-hop, and to be honest I haven't felt the need to stray from hip-hop at all this year, I know alot of people have complained about the state of hip-hop this year but i've been happy with every purchase this year, I actually feel like i've been spoilt for choice.




I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

if you like nirvana...let me rephrase that the mindset of nirvana....you'll love queens of the stone age...plus dave sits in on drums for them  :D

santana , you know about him, but yeah his cd is pretty damn good

audioslave is rage against the machine minus the annoying singer , added chris cornell (frmr lead singer of soundgarden)

if you liked alice in chains you'll  like them

Hmm... well, Alice In Chains.  I dont really like them very much, BUT, I can see just how incredibly dope they are, even though I don't like them much.  Same with Rage, I always thought they were dope, but I didn't care for them much myself.  Chris Cornell rocks the party, LOL.

Has anyone heard Pink's new album? I doubt too many here have, I haven't in full myself but i've been impressed lyrically by her singles (minus "Get The Party Started") so far, especially "Like A Pill".

Going with the majority a bit here...I'd say i really liked the Nirvana cd, there was a long 6yr wait for another official release from them, it's just good to be hearing from them still even if it was only a best of cd.
New QOTSA was good, as to was the Chilli Peppers 'By the Way'. I like the new Foo Fighters cd 'One By One', wasn't as good as there previous cds but was good and worth a mention also.
