While the '70s marked the peak of the guitar bands and the '80s the keyboard ones, 1990 started without any real direction. This period famously saw the birth of a new type of music consumption; the arrival of the CD would fundamentally change listening habits, but not for nearly as long as we had imagined at the time! Cassettes and vinyl gradually began to gather dust at the bottom of drawers and in garages. It was the time of "As seen on TV," an advertising model that would go hand in hand with the rise of the new stars, like Mariah Carey and Sinead O'Connor. Rap was also becoming more mainstream with Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest and LL Cool J leading the way. New Jack Swing was perhaps at its peak, represented here by Tony! Toni! Toné! and Bell, Biv, DeVoe, but groove was everywhere, from house crossovers Deee-Lite to metal thrashers Pantera, who released their major label debut in 1990. And in rock, an alternative musical current was strengthening thanks to the Pixies, Sonic Youth, Breeders and Fugazi, and the Replacements, who released their final album (which would garner the band their first and only Grammy nomination). Grunge was in its nascent form with debuts from Alice in Chains and Mother Love Bone and from England, Depeche Mode started a new era with their massively successful Violator.
