Red Hot Chili Peppers and Smashing Pumpkins Make Top Albums of the 90s List

(Gibson) Gibson continues their countdown of the Top 50 Albums of the 90s with today's list showing their picks for No 11-20. Here are a couple of highlights:

12. Siamese Dream, The Smashing Pumpkins (1993): While The Smashing Pumpkins' 1991 debut, Gish, didn't hit it big with the mainstream, it made the Pumpkins one of the most buzzed about acts on the alternative scene, and expectations were sky-high for their follow-up, Siamese Dream. With mysterious frontman Billy Corgan at the helm, Siamese Dream played on prog rock with delicately layered guitars and introspective lyrics. Anyone who questions the influence of this album need only look to rock radio monsters "Disarm," "Cherub Rock" and "Today." Anne Erickson

11. Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Red Hot Chili Peppers (1991): Nowhere have the Red Hot Chili Peppers better showcased their ability to break down musical walls as on 1991's Blood Sugar Sex Magik. With producer Rick Rubin in the director's chair, the album spawned funky hits ("Suck My Kiss"), personal acoustic ballads ("Under the Bridge") and alt-rock nuggets about lost love ("Breaking the Girl"). Musically, John Frusciante's guitar work is smart and strong carefully placed riffing and raw soloing fit tightly alongside frontman Anthony Kiedis' self-reflections, making this a noise-funk collection hard to beat.
