Greatest '90s Albums


The Top Ten

1 Nevermind - Nirvana Nevermind - Nirvana

One of the most influential bands of all time they deserve #1

2 Ok Computer - Radiohead Ok Computer - Radiohead

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.

No other album has changed the way people listen to music to such a degree. Nevermind brought alternative to the mainstream, but this DEFINES the genre!

Six?!? Deserves one. It has beautiful patterns, melting lyrics and great instrumentals. From airbag to the tourist, every track is 10/10 (even fitter happier.) In my opinion, it makes Nevermind look like trash. And Nevermind is a good album.

This should be 1 - KidA

3 Ten - Pearl Jam Ten - Pearl Jam
4 Metallica (The Black Album) - Metallica Metallica (The Black Album) - Metallica
5 Dookie - Green Day Dookie - Green Day

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!

My favorite album of all time! Loaded with great songs like Basket Case, Longview,
When I Come Around, Welcome to Paradise and She - PerpendicularSealeo6

7 (What's the Story) Morning Glory? - Oasis (What's the Story) Morning Glory? - Oasis
8 Superunknown - Soundgarden Superunknown - Soundgarden
9 Alice In Chains - Dirt Alice In Chains - Dirt

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.

This is my favorite album of all time, but it didn't create grunge, it did help popularize it though.

10 Pinkerton - Weezer Pinkerton - Weezer

Weezer is kinda a joke now but during the 90s they were simply amazing and this is by far there best work. raw emotion

18 Blue Album - Weezer Blue Album - Weezer

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

19 Automatic for the People - R.E.M. Automatic for the People - R.E.M.
20 Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - Smashing Pumpkins
