  12. Ben Folds Five by Ben Folds Five ·
    In the shadow of the grunge revolution it was rare to find a band like Ben Folds Five. A band that did without a guitarist, and sounded more like Joe Jackson than Black Sabbath. Due to their piano/bass/drums line-up and wry humorus lyrics at fir...(more)

  17. Farmhouse by Phish ·
    A very good album from a very good band. This is my favorite Phish album. I can listen to it without getting bored, which is more than I can say about most studio albums from jam-bands.

  19. Enema Of The State by Blink 182 ·
    The term that I feel would best describe this album would be "Geek Punk". This is definitly not be in the collection of your prototypical leather-jacketed, saftey-pin fashioned punk. It is more for the person who would not go quite so far as to ...(more)
