Top Ten Best Albums of 1994


The Top TenXW

1Weezer - The Blue Album

Easily best album of '94 not one flaw in it. Tells the story of four nerdy boys from LA and songs like Buddy Holly and Undone make this album great. The true gems are The world has turned and left me here and In the Garage.

Weezer is the best band since 1992! Why is their best album on number 8? Weezer is much better than Madonna!

THREE super hits.. How much does it take to make an album good enough for you people

Definitely Maybe is so good, but I gotta give my vote to Weezer.

2Oasis - Definitely Maybe

Oasis best band of the 90's. Madonna can't be compared to Oasis. Oasis songs are an anthem for a whole generation of youth.

madonna number 1 it's a disgrace she's the most overrated female singer ever Oasis owned the 90s

3Green Day - Dookie

Number 53? Seriously? This album killed grunge, started a whole new generation of punk, and the songs from this album still get played on the radio. laugh out loud you people are so stupid

WHAT? Number 40? What is this? This is real talent. Real Music. Green Day write their OWN music, unlike some of the albums above.

Green Day literally revolutionised the whole punk rock scene with this album, it deserves to be number one.

I'm really angry about this. - Alex151

4Madonna - Bedtime Stories

I prefer "Erotica" but this one has some jams too. "Take a Bow", "Secret" and "Bedtime Story" are superb singles

Take a Bow is one of the greatest songs ever!

5Offspring - Smash

Never mind the bullock's is my favourite punk, and this come next. Grunge influences also, riffs that will keep on your mind. Really awesome, if you are a teenager.

Great mixture of grunge and punk rock. If you like heavy riffs really cool, to you never forget, you should listen

The album hold the record for being "the greatest selling album on an independent record label of all time".

the greatest selling independant album of all time - Marcopwnzatdrums

6Red Hot Chili Peppers - Out In L.A.
7Portishead - Dummy

From beginning to finish, a fantastic listen. I can't think of a more layered, nuanced, and cerebral record than Dummy.

8Nas - Illmatic

When Nas released this album he was a hip hop prodigy becoming one of the greatest Hip Hop artists of all time. This album was a stepping stone of the genre and should be in the number one spot.

The most classy album of the year and it should be in the top ten that's for sure. Every song is lyrically amazing - robertoantonioortuso
