he got a club shut down in my hometown. I think that's the last time someone even remotely related to rock music played here

Blind Melon was great...those two albums still hold up today.  I wouldn't call them a one hit wonder though.  "No Rain" was big because of the massive video airplay, but they had many superior songs..."Changes", "Galaxie", "Tones of Home" just name a few

Change still touches me, despite all the years since I owned that album.  It's a classic recording of that 90s alt rock ("college radio rock") era.

I totally agree. Great tune. But then again, I love that whole album.

I definitely played the hell out of it for a couple years.  Collaborator recently referenced Change as inspiration for one of the songs we were working on, which stoked my interest in the band again.  There's a lot of bands from that era I'd long forgotten that have aged rather well.  Looking back, it was a good time for music.

I’ve mentioned this on TRF before - another band from that era that’s often overlooked is Screaming Trees. I think their last album, Dust, from ‘96 is the best album to come out of the 90s. And that includes anything from Rush.

Other great 90s album that I’d put way up there are Smashing Pumpkins’ Gish & Siamese Dream, Alice in Chains’ Dirt, and Jane’s Addiction’s Ritual de lo habitual.

I feel all of the albums in this post have truly lasted the test of time just like Blind Melon’s debut.

I had all those albums, still listen to Dirt, Siamese Dream.  Haven't owned the others probably since the 90s.  Youtube's got my back.
