" 1995 was a vintage year for LPs. We were spoilt for choice, what with the Sea & Cake, Raekwon, T-Power, Pram, Genius, Springheel Jack, Wagon Christ, Mobb Deep, Spain, Red Snapper, Patrick Pulsinger, LaBradford, Speedy J, and plenty more. Yet, with the benefit of hindsight, I'd argue that the best of the bunch, in terms of durability and inventiveness, has to be Bedouin Ascent's 'Music For Particles', sadly one of the more neglected records of the year."
Kevin Pearce was right. 1995 was a vintage year for albums, and all of those stand up in their own ways still. Are people out there digging for those records or are they just scrabbling around for second rate guitar jangling chancers? Me, I just re-acquainted myself with the first two A Tribe Called Quest sets. '91s The Low End Theory in particular sounds marvelously refreshing.
