Double J reveal the 50 best Australian albums of the ’90s

Staff Writer

It was a time of flannels, huge mobile phones and unwashed hair but the ’90s was also a prime time for Aussie music as Double J proved today, revealing their top 50 Australian albums of the decade.

Topping the list is Brissie legends Powderfinger with their seminal 1998 album Internationlist, which is getting a deluxe re-release next month.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds‘ ’94 LP Let Love In and The Living End‘s self-titled 1998 debut round out the top three.

The collection was celebrated as a part of Double J’s month of ’90s celebration with the list picked by station tastemakers as well as listeners.

“We had some help, of course. You let us know the albums you felt strongest about and we made those responses a key part of our decision-making process,” Double J Music editor Dan Condon said.

“It didn’t exactly make it easier, but we’re hoping it has made it better.”

Cave managed to make a second appearance at #21 with The Boatman’s Call, Crowded House got in twice at #6 with Woodface and #38 with Together Alone and You Am I made a double dip with Hourly, Daily at #14 and Hi Fi Way at #5.
