    I thought the term "Golden Era" referred to the years around 1988? But perhaps the limits get pushed as we go along? My favorite year has been 1992 for a long time, but I always thought of that as "post" the official "Golden Era".

    I roughly categorize like this (in my head):
    79-83 Old School
    83-87 New School
    86-89 Golden Era
    90-92 Early Nineties
    93-96 Mid Nineties
    97-02 Either Rawkus/Indie/"Backpacker" Era or Shiny Suit Era, depending on sound...
    and then 03- = Present Era

    That works for me in my head, but I guess everyone does it differently.

    88 to 92 would be my preferred 1st choice (sampling highpoint)
    84 to 87 for 2nd choice (drum machine + sampled stabs action)

    79 to 89 for poll purposes

    but it's like:

    1987: paid in full,yo bum rush the show,bigger and deffer,raising hell

    1988-1990 three years golden pure golden era

    1991 last golden era year

    1992,1993 still good but too many 'pete rock-sounding beats'(loud snares,horn loops and posse choruses)

    1994-1997 ruled in secret by someone named k-def in my opinion

    ^ You have a serious K-def obsession

    "It was a tough call between 1989–1995 and 1996–1999 but in the end i voted for K-def."
