Poll: What Was the Best Guitar Album of 1997?

Where's Machine Head - The More Things Change...?



Hey, CD
As I mentioned, it got hard around '96/'97 to really define the "guitar album." Sometimes having guitar on the album isn't quite enough. That being said, I did add Limp Bizkit to the list.
Despite what anyone may think of them now, Wes Borland was -- or seemingly trying to -- expanding the guitar's vocabulary. So I'll give you that.
Thanks for bringing these artists to attention, Chris.



You forgot to list The Offspring's Ixnay on the Hombre, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones' Let's Face It, Everclear's So Much for the Afterglow, Limp Bizkit's Three Dollar Bill Y'all and Third Eye Blind's self-title debut, which are some of my favorite albums of 1997 and I'd like to see them get some recognition. I don't mind if any of them don't appear on the poll, I'd vote for Americana when you do 1998 anyway or Conspiracy of One when you do 2000, I know The Offspring still became popular with those albums.
