Top Ten Best Albums of 1994

The Top Ten
1 Weezer - The Blue Album Weezer - The Blue Album Product Image

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.

Guys, really? Without Weezer there's no Madonna

OK, that's an exaggeration, but really, all the rock albums belong on top of the pop albums because without rock, there's no pop music.

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

2 Oasis - Definitely Maybe Oasis - Definitely Maybe Product Image

Great vocals, great songs, great album. We didn't know how good it was until 1997 when the quality of Oasis just started going downhill until 2008 when it was practically a lost cause. If it weren't for this and Morning Glory, oasis wouldn't be half as good as they are

Beautiful, never forget it. Each song is a classic and unique in their own way. If you haven't already, pick this one out and give it a listen!

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.

This album sucks. Oasis are Beatles knock-offs, and I don't even like the Beatles.

3 Green Day - Dookie Green Day - Dookie Product Image

Basket Case and Emenius Sleepus are both hilarious, Coming Clean was groundbreaking, Welcome To Paradise and When I Come Around have some of the best riffs I've ever heard, Longview showcases every band member's talent so well, and F.O.D. was just stunning. How is this behind Oasis?

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.

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

What is this? Dookie at number 39? This was one of the best selling albums of the year! Deserves to be number one! #Punk rocki

4 Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral Product Image

Best album of '94. It brought Industrial Music into the mainstream and solidified Trent Reznor's place among the musical greats.

Best due to its originality and influence

5 Madonna - Bedtime Stories Madonna - Bedtime Stories Product Image

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

Half Pop half R&B masterpiece - very soft and unique record

Take a Bow is one of the greatest songs ever!

This is a disgrace to mankind.

6 Nas - Illmatic Nas - Illmatic Product Image

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

Why is this so low? Oh that's right, just remembered that a lot of people hate rap...

Easily #1! Classic Hip Hop album!

7 Offspring - Smash Offspring - Smash Product Image

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

8 Korn - Korn Korn - Korn Product Image

First nu metal album ever.

9 Pantera - Far Beyond Driven Pantera - Far Beyond Driven  Product Image

This album was #1 on the billboard, and a truly amazing album change my mind

The Contenders
11 Alice In Chains - Jar of Flies Alice In Chains - Jar of Flies Product Image
12 Portishead - Dummy Portishead - Dummy Product Image

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

13 Purple - Stone Temple Pilots Purple - Stone Temple Pilots Product Image
14 Superunknown - Soundgarden Superunknown - Soundgarden Product Image

The iconic list of the best albums of 1994 is literally called "Superunknown : 50 iconic albums that defined 1994"

what this is too obvious

21 Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain Product Image
22 Beck - Mellow Gold Beck - Mellow Gold Product Image

"Alcohol on my hands, I got plans, to ditch myself and get outside. Dancing, throwing plates, decapitating their laughing dates, swirling chickens caught in flight, out of focus, much too bright, coming down, shiny teeth, game shows suckers trying to bleed, but I got the bug and I got a drug and I got something better than love..."

Beck left anti-folk defined and mixed experimental lo-fi folk with hip-hop ideas.

23 Rubberneck - Toadies Rubberneck - Toadies Product Image
24 Pink Floyd - The Division Bell Pink Floyd - The Division Bell Product Image

#24!? That's way too low for Pink Floyd, even without Roger Waters. This album marks the return of Rick Wright as an official member after 15 years and you can hear it. It's an amazing album and its lyrics are way calmer than Roger's. This is the best album of the 1990s.

Guys! It's Pink Floyd! Pink Floyd equals awesome perfection!

25 Megadeth - Youthanasia Megadeth - Youthanasia Product Image

All those songs beat by some crappy albums ahead and nirvana nevermind was in 1991
Albums of 94 that should be higher
Pink Floyd - the division bell
Dream theater - awake
Korn - korn
Pearl Jam - vitalogy
Machine head - burn my eyes
Bush - 16 stone
Soundgarden - superunknown
Pantera - far beyound driven
Stone temple pilots - purple
I mean I known oasis was popular in the 90s but I mean these albums should be higher
