Everclear has been around since 1991 and was started by leader Art Alexakis. When they were at their height, the main three guys included Art, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund and this to me is the classic line-up. This was the band at its peak. All the hits you know, “Father of Mine”, “AM Radio” , “Santa Monica” and “Wonderful” just to name a few.
After the disappointing sales and reception of the band’s 2003 album, Slow Motion Daydream, Craig and Greg left the band. Thankfully, Art continued Everclear with now a revolving door of musicians. But don’t kid yourself, the band is Art’s and it doesn’t matter who the players are, you want Art’s vocals and sound as that is all that matters.
I am going to go through and rank 12 albums which does include a Covers Album and a couple albums of re-recordings as those aren’t technically compilations. I won’t review any live albums or ones listed as greatest hits. I figured these 12 best represent that band and are what should be ranked. So let’s get started and I hope you enjoy.
