Greatest '90s Albumsrichie4life
The Top Ten
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
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.
It's quite obvious to anyone with half a brain that OK Computer is a modern master piece.V 12 Comments
One of the most influential bands of all time they deserve #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.V 1 Comment
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 - idolangelx13
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
so goood!V 1 Comment
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
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.

One of the greatest thrash metal albums of ALL TIME. - winner333
Nice album, one of Megadeth's best - Disturbedpotato
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. - dlbk03
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 timeV 1 Comment
Better than Nevermind
This and OK Computer should be way higher. Masterpieces. - Donut
I love this album so much it is insane. So many great songs. The Show... Must Go ON!
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
Sure Pinkerton is better, but as far as impact, Blue deserves to be in the top 5
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!
Should be higher than 15. - DisturbedpotatoV 2 Comments
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. - TheMusicNerd
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. - MouldyWalrus
Illmatic needs to be higher on this list. Should be number 1. Greatest rap album of all time. The whole track list is great with great songs like NY State of Mind, Life's a B, The World is Yours, Halftime. Memory Lane, One Love, One Time 4 Your Mind, Represent and It Ain't Hard to Tell.
Top of the pile for me, along with OK Computer.
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.
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? - Donut
The greatest album of the 90s - end of.
WoW, just, WOOW. This should be at least #5
This album is way too low!
This album is so iconic. ‘Cherub Rock’, couldn’t have picked a better song to start the album. There’s so many hits on this album. Disarm, Today, Mayonaise, Cherub Rock. Even the deep cuts are good. You might think one or two aren’t as great but at the end of the day, the whole album is listenable. Perfect length too. 13 songs. Nice. - Graham
Best selling album of 90s! Really Great! - Alexandr
On of the most influential metal albums of all time. Created bands like slipknot
Brutal - Disturbedpotato
Simply the best
The black album is over this what
Not as good as Morning Glory, but man oh man was this one Hell of a debut. One of the best of all time.
This album must be in Top3. Every single is the legend - Irina2932
Its now like 2 decades old and it is still so relevant that no one can compete.
Of course it is,
How is this album so low on the list? It's so sad that Dream Theater gets ignored and especially on a list of the 90's albums which in this era they made two masterpieces with this album and Images and Words.
Radiohead's OK Computer is an album that is equal to this one in terms of quality and both of them represent different approaches to progressive music, but I like Dream more because of Petrucci and Portnoy and their amazing skills. - IronMaidenFan666
This album has so many great songs!
Classic album.Deserves to be much higher.
Pure hard rock, from start to finish.
