    2001, a music odyssey! Tim and Steven venture into the 21st century and, against expectations, they like what they see. Good Lord, it might even be a Golden Age! Artists discussed include Radiohead, Opeth, Bjork, Tool, Elbow, Mercury Rev, Brigitte Fontaine, The Caretaker, Prefuse 73 and Prefab Sprout (with a special shout out to Paddy MacAloon's beard).

    Giving overviews of the years that in the duo's opinion define the era of ‘the classic album’, Season Two opens with 1981. Taking in Post-Punk, Electro-Pop, Metal, Progressive, Jazz and more, in this edition Wilson and Bowness discuss artists as diverse as Japan, A Certain Ratio, Rush, Grace Jones, Rupert Hine, OMD, Pat Metheny, Iron Maiden, Magazine and others. Against all odds, they also make a valiant attempt to defend Phil Collins' masterwork Face Value! Launched at the beginning of the UK lockdown in 2020, The Album Years ended up being in the Top 5 music podcast charts in nearly 30 countries.

    In the latest episode the guys venture into the nineties. Extra fun can be had by joining in with a drinking game as you prepare to down one every time Tim mentions Robert Fripp or Steven mentions industrial music!

    Tim even sounds like he's beaming in from a barn circa 1969 on this one, as the duo bring you more schoolboy errors in the third of their “9” trilogy. Oh, and it’s 69 minutes long, can you see what they did there?

    Tim and Steven try to to figure out why they don't understand the appeal of an album that regularly appears near the top of greatest albums of all time lists.

Valuable info

All the things we never needed to know, yet highly entertain our, by comparison to those geniuses, crippled musical minds. Their eloquence, humour and clarity of speech are a delight.

Absolutely recommended

It’s such a joy to listen to this podcast! I’m born in 63 and started collecting records in the mid 70s. With a massive collection I would consider myself as a music nerd. Steven and Tim are bringing records on the table that I either wasn’t aware of before or lead me to dig deep into my collection and hear old gems with a new perspective. An absolutely great listen and 100% recommend! BTW love the Spotify Playlist related to each episode. Come on Steven and Tim: would love to have some more episodes in the feature 👍

The Language Issues

I know that you are not allowed to play music in your podcast (ok - you are allowed, but it would ruin you) but it would be a fantastic service, if there was a kind of a list with all the great records you were talking about, because there are not only British (native English speaking) „nerds“ listening (and waiting for your failures). Ordinary Germans (like me) are searching their ass off for bands like „Mansun“ because we only know „Manson“ or „Mansion“ etc. or Shuggie Otis (which you pronounce like Shaggy and this is really disturbing. Vielen Dank.
