A top 30 from yours truly:

30. Anal Cunt- It Just Gets Worse
29. Eminem- The Slim Shady LP
28. Notorious B.I.G.- Ready To Die
27. Hole- Celebrity Skin
26. Pearl Jam- Ten
25. Mother Love Bone- Mother Love Bone
24. Screaming Trees- Sweet Oblivion
23. Love Battery- Dayglo
22. Smashing Pumpkins- Siamese Dream
21. Nirvana- MTV Unplugged In New York
20. Pavement- Slanted And Enchanted
19. Hum- You'd Prefer An Astronaut
18. All- Breaking Things
17. Blink-182- Enema Of The State
16. The Dwellers- Whatever Makes You Happy (by far the most obscure album on this list, I will give a big hug to whoever has actually listened to this lost power pop gem)
15. Sunny Day Real Estate- Diary
14. Soundgarden- Superunknown
13. Green Day- Dookie
12. Nirvana- In Utero
11. Teenage Fanclub- Bandwagonesque
10. Talulah Gosh- Was It Just A Dream? (technically released in 2013, but it is essentially just a deluxe edition of 1996's Backwash)
9. Shai Hulud- Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion
8. Saves The Day- Through Being Cool
7. Green Day- Insomniac
6. Lifetime- Jersey's Best Dancers
5. The Get Up Kids- Something To Write Home About
4. Jimmy Eat World- Clarity
3. Alice In Chains- Dirt
2. Weezer- The Blue Album
1. Weezer- Pinkerton

If this thread picks up steam, I'll add write-ups/little reviews for this list, as I know it's a little different from most '90s lists. Also, there are many incredible albums from this wonderful musical decade that I simply haven't listened to that I plan on hearing at some point, so my list may change in the future. The '90s was a fantastic decade for music, so it's hard to listen to every classic album from that time period when there are so many to choose from.

What about you fine ladies and gents? What are your favorite albums from the decade?

That’s a solid list.

I’d have to make room for:

Archers of Loaf - Icky Mettle (they can go toe-to-toe with Pavement for god-tier indie rock)
The Breeders - Last Splash (better than the Pixies, possibly...)
Bastard - Wind of Pain (monster Japanese hardcore album... perfect front to back and back to front)
Propagandhi - How to Clean Everything (this is what made me a jaded leftist)
Duster - Stratosphere (space rock for bad headspaces)
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory (enough said)


Nailing down 30 is hard because there were at least 300 amazing releases in the 90s.

Primus - Pork Soda
Cypress Hill - Black Sunday
Alice in Chains - Unplugged
Rage Against the Machine - Evil Empire
At The Drive-in - In/Casino/Out
Crossed Out - Discography (Probably only actual album they put out, everything else was just splits / demos)
Possum Dixon - Possum Dixon LP


I'm sure there's more, but I'll have to wrack my brain for them.
