Top 10 Greatest Albums of the '90s
The Top Ten
One of the most influential bands of all time they deserve #1
Number 1 album in the 90s no doubt.
Nevermind deserves a spot on the list, but definitely not #1 position. OK Computer was light years ahead of anything else in the 90's. The music was so progressive that it still sounds recent after 20 years. There is a reason why Radiohead continues to play large venues and sell out shows to this day. They are amazing.
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.
This album is not number one because of Nevermind and Ten, you'd have to be blind not to see that or just stupid to ask that question like that. - PewPewAssassin
I liked listening to this but my computer malfunctioned at 3:47 at the part where they sing "I'm a creep", probably becasue the russians were trying to find my vote for hilla clint and change it to Don Truman which is almost as famous as Oliver Tree when he doesn't have a bowl cut on his head. I hate this era and I hate everything it stands for.
How did Nirvana, a simple grunge band, surpass OK Computer? The musicality of Radiohead is always unreal. The album starts with rock, but falls into slow melodies. And back. The isolated feeling you get is incredible. Deserves #1.
Honestly every track beats nevermind. Both are incredible. Ten is a legend.
Better than nevermind. Way overshadowed
Hands down the best and most influential album of the decade.
Influencial for all of punk, so fun to listen to. It doesn't feel as serious as many albums which adds to the replayability. Basket Case, Longview, When I Come Around, She, Having a Blast are just great jams!
has many good songs on it no bad ones examples include basket case - the song which made them famous longview welcome to paradise when I come around and she
Simply amazing. I don't think it's better than Nevermind or Jagged little pill for that matter, but I have to help get it closer to the top 10!
18 is an injustice!
Very important album
This album proved that you don't need a lot of money to make a great album
Very understated Masterpiece
The pet sounds of my time
Biggest band of the nighties and you know deep down I'm right
Perfect album, just perfect
Great album! But I like Definitely Maybe more...
I love this album so much it is insane. So many great songs. The Show... Must Go ON!
One of the greatest thrash metal albums of ALL TIME.
Nice album, one of Megadeth's best
Why is this not any higher?!?
I have never seen an album as glorious of a cry of pain and despair than Pinkerton. This album wasn't well received when it came out, but it has aged VERY well. It's a timeless record that can evoke catharsis out of the hardest hardass. It is truly magnificent in it's simplicity, and that's the beauty of it.
Weezer is kinda a joke now but during the 90s they were simply amazing and this is by far there best work. raw emotion
Absolutely in the right place
Greatest album of all time
Dirt, the downward spiral, Aenima, Antichrist Superstar, Rage Against the Machine (self-titled), FrizzleFry... No?
This album is much more than a grunge album...
Layne's voice attitude and lyrics penetrate right into the heart along with jerry's amazing guitar creativity and songwriting on the other tracks and the harmonies they do together...out of this world! And we can't forget about mike's awesome bass tone and basslines and of course sean's drumming which is so iconic to me
This is my favorite album of all time, but it didn't create grunge, it did help popularize it though.
How is this album not already on this list?! Every song on Dirt is a masterpiece. This album created grunge along with nevermind. It is perfect.
Better than Nevermind
This and OK Computer should be way higher. Masterpieces.
Top of the pile for me, along with OK Computer.
I hope you're kidding, Illmatic this low? This should at least be in the top 2, if not the top 1. This is basically a representation of what music should be.
Its because hip hop wasn't what people voted for first on this list, I guess rock is first to come to mind about the 90s
Should at least be top 10 just for being the greatest Hip Hop album in the 90s and arguably of all time.
Essential for Boom Bap Hip Hop in the 90's
Classic 'Chili Peppers album, or the quintessential 'Chili Peppers album. I love it. I'm glad it's in the top 10.
Suck my Kiss, Give it away, Under the Bridge, Breaking The Girl, I could Have lied
This defined a whole new genre. Masterpiece!
Love this! Cover art is awesome too!
This is more than just an album, it's the magnum opus of a sad genius. In my opinion it's not only the best album of the nineties, but of all-time.
This should be higher up legendary work
Not the *absolute* best (that’d be Dirt), but it really should be higher.
This is literally the start of modern pop music
WHY IS THIS NOT FIRST!?!
Why are all the best albums at the bottom of the list?
The greatest album of the 90s - end of.
WoW, just, WOOW. This should be at least #5
I think this album deserves to be at number 1 its not like the rolling stones did get to be in the top ten screw you bastards by the way. MICHAEL JACKSON and THE ROLLING STONES are both my personal number 1 favorite music artists then ELVIS PRESLEY and QUEEN as my personal number 2 and then EMINEM and LED ZEPPELIN as my personal number 3. You can call me a hypocrite and you can call me superficial for all I care.
My favourite album! The best!
It is the best alboom in the world! Forever!
Jam, why you wanna trip on me, in the closet, she drives me wild, remember the time, can't let her get away, heal the world, black or white, who is it, give into me, will you be there, keep the faith, gone too soon and dangerous. My favourite MJ albums are
Off the wall
best albums of the 90s definitely
This is much better than Pinkerton, better lyrics, more varied songwriting, better captures the nerd rock image that made weezer unique, an epic closer in Only In Dreams
Needs to be in top 5.
Sure Pinkerton is better, but as far as impact, Blue deserves to be in the top 5
This album must be in Top3. Every single is the legend
