Better Memory than Bob Dylan?

As you've probably read elsewhere, wheezy harmonica-snorting Bawb can't remember a decent sounding album in the last 20 years (coincidentally, he's got a new one out).

Now, I'm the first to admit that some of his songs are quite good when other people do them. Secondly, he was talking more about production and recording techniques rather than decent tunes but even so...

Odd he should say 20 years, because 1986 was the peak of some of the most appalling, FX ridden guff along the lines of the "California sound" rock and "2nd British invasion" pomposity. I can think of lushly-produced albums (Mansun's debut "Attack of the Grey Lanterns", Dove's "Lost Souls") as well as (presumably his preference) more stripped-down offerings that rate at least a "good" in terms of production.

I get a bit cheesed off with this "decent music stopped in 197x" lore. Anybody else to nominate good albums that're still in their teens or less?
