30 years ago this week marks the anniversary of some groundbreaking music releases: Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik,” The Pixies “Trompe Le Monde” and A Tribe Called Quest’s “The Low End Theory.” Each groundbreaking project dropped Sept. 24, 1991.

1 of those albums is amazing the others aren't bad:)

for me it's RHCP... that is ALMOST a perfect album... under the bridge can die in a dumpster fire.. the rest of that album is awesome.

And that's not putting down the other albums.. just not for me:)

I already answered. If you didn't know it was Low End Theory, get to Spotify and learn your ear holes.
I like BSSM, but the Tribe album was superior in every way. Sorry, Chad.

Sept 28, 1974 - Bad Company went to No.1 on the US album chart with their self-titled debut album.

Holy crap... who does that? That's phenomenal.
Asia. And for a similar reason: they were both bands made up entirely of established industry veterans who already knew how to write and perform music and had serious industry connections and muscle behind them. Emphatically not taking anything away from how good Bad Company could be--Mick Ralphs was an excellent guitarist, Simon Kirke a fantastic drummer and Paul Rodgers has one of the great voices in rock history.
