27Radiohead - OK Computer

How is this not number one... This is the greatest album of the 90's, if not the greatest album of all time. The music takes leaps and bounds through of brilliance; the lyrics capture every element of the human condition.

56Euphoria Morning - Chris Cornell
Love the lyrics on this album, the raw power of his voice but also on tracks like Wave Goodbye when his voice slides up gracefully and softly to the high notes it's beautiful but also when he roars on the closing track steel rain you can sense the pain, the depression, the anger, you feel all the problems he went through with his relationships and drug addiction and though depression. God this album is so underrated.
This is Chris Cornell really grabbing at your heart strings. His powerful sounds sonic booms of emotion, pratically knocking you off your geet. There's so many genres as well gospel, pop, rock, psychadelic etc. It's simply a masterpiece
