EDITORS’ NOTES

Soft rock hit its stride in the radio-obsessed ‘90s, with lush production, dewy-eyed lyrics, and mellow melodies all signaling a more chill approach to rocking out. A mixed bag of artists lit up the airwaves, with riff-heavy acts The Goo Goo Dolls and The Cranberries lending the talent pool a grunge-laced edge and lilting acoustic mavens Jewel and Lisa Loeb adding some folk influence to the mix, while gruff stalwarts Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty give the genre their trademark scuffed-up sheen.
