To Techno and Electronica and the newly popular ambient sound that was present through these years.
Today we take a look at the best albums from 1996-1999
Enjoy. Add you favorites from this period!

The Top Ten

1 Sigur Rós - Agætis Byrjun Sigur Rós - Agætis Byrjun

Such a beautiful and unique album. Why listen to One Direction when this exists? - Entranced98

Well. This is almost pretty obvious.
Why is this album at #1 your asking.
Well some of you are bitching because OK Computer didn't get top spot. The reason this is #1 in my opinion is because it is dreadfully underrated. This album came onto the scene in June of 1999. It couldn't have came out at a better time

This is a Post-Rock, Ambient.
Masterpiece in its own right.
It is also one of the first albums of 2000 - Kmfdm1997
