1993 - Songs from the Rain
You will find elsewhere on this site some overly-enthusiastic ranting about just how amazingly good the "Songs from the Rain" album is. Confirming how good that album is can also be achieved by assessing the quality of the b-sides that arose from those sessions: many of them are simply awesome. I firmly believe that they could have assembled the b-sides as a similarly strong follow-up album - indeed, it seems a crime that so few people had the opportunity to hear those songs.
