Also, possibly weighted towards what I'm listening to right now.

Pretty impossible, but to pick some things that were pretty damn important to me during the 90s:

Autechre - Tri Repetae
Black Star - Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star
Mouse On Mars - Iaora Tahiti
To Rococo Rot - The Amateur View
Tricky - Maxinquaye

(done in 30 seconds - maybe the best way to go?)

The nineties being my favourite musical decade, this is tricky.

However, I shall go to my old standby of finding the first five 1990s albums on my top 100 albums list.

In order:

1. Weezer - Weezer (1994)
2. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Let Love In (1994)
3. Pink Floyd - The Division Bell (1994, holy shit)
4. blink-182 - Enema of the State (1999)
5. Blur - Parklife (1994)

What the fuck is with me and '94?

Love you!

Top five?  Nah, fuck that. but here's a few I like that haven't been mentioned so far:

- Massive Attack: Blue Lines.  (I, too, love Maxinquaye, but it falls away in the last few tracks.  Blue Lines is solid all the way through.)

- Will Oldham: Lost Blues and Other Songs (technically a compilation, so if I have to choose an actual "album" album I'll go with Viva Last Blues.)

- Cat Power: Moon Pix.

- The Tea Party: Splendor Solis (sure, it's wanky as all hell, but god-damn it's awesome.  Sadly it was all down hill after that.)

Also, Nevermind.  Shut up, kids, you weren't there.

Also also, Last Splash would be a killer album . . . if it wasn't for all the filler.

Doubtless I'll think of a gazillion more when it's not 8:30 in the morning.

Gryff, "I Just Wanna Get Along."  "Mad Lucas."  "Hag."  This is what I'm talking about.  Last Splash is a bunch of 5-out-of-5 singles linked together by poorly thought out filler material.

Tommy: while In Utero is, quantitatively, a better album than Nevermind, the latter has the edge for me (and, I suspect, a lot of others) because of what it meant personally.  Fun fact: I only actually own one Nirvana album, and it's In Utero.  (When I was a young 'un in the 1990s I listened to my brother's copy of Nevermind.)

Dark Flame: oops!  That's what happens when you skim a thread after being woken early by an unexpected council hard rubbish collection.  Still, so good it's worth mentioning twice, eh?

Hmm, I guess where you hear filler I hear cool little changes of pace and style. I seriously really love Last Splash from start to finish!

Also Tommy's opinion is totally biased because of his raging woody for anything that Steve Albini ever touched.

Having said that, In Utero is definitely better than Nevermind.

Actually, it was just a single.  It's the sound of the Boggle dice-roller being pressed over and over again, set to a house beat.  For three minutes, obviously.  Very big in the underground "Word Games" party scene that was popular in Guildford in the late-90s.

People have said mine already but here goes nothing!

Beck - Odelay
Weezer - Pinkerton
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen

It was tough choosing between the first two Weezer albums but I've listened to Pinkerton more.

I don't want to knock your opinion, I'm just curious what your explanation is for including this but not Loveless.

I'd also be interested in hearing how much of this music people here were listening to when it came out and how much is retrospective. I'm almost certain I wasn't listening to any of the stuff I listed in the 90's. Then again I wasn't really into music much back then. I'm especially curious if you listed one of the Weezer albums since they have a bit of a reputation for inducing nostalgia.

Praeserpium Machinarum- Lauryn Hill is such a good call, I'd completely forgot about that album (and there was one I actually remember listening to way back when).

Dude, Boggle was totally trying to be mainstream. Aggravation was where it was at, it totally had an old school sound.

Heh, Tricky's Feed Me is one of my favourite album closers ever. :)  

I think Blue Lines and Maxinquaye are actually really different albums, even if the former has Tricky on it.  'Blue Lines' is sparse as fuck and really consistent, while the latter is kinda ramshackle and insane with some crap bits but IMO higher peaks.

Strange how sharply the quality of Tricky's solo material fell off.  David Toop had it right, he said the key to 'Maxinquaye''s radness is how close it is to being generic - the more Tricky has tried to be difficult the less interesting he has become.

I think I bought 'Loveless' in 92 or 93, but the other 4 albums I listed were bought soon after they were released.

These aren't really my Top 5*, just 5 random albums from the 90's that icked my ass, and still do to this day...

Circle Of Dust - Disengage
Zao - Where Blood And Fire Bring Rest
Training For Utopia - Plastic Soul Impalement
Blindside - ST
Argyle Park - Misguided

All the other stuff I listen to that hails from the 90's, I've just gotten into in the last 4 or 5 years, so I can't really count them...these 5 cd's and the bands that made them pretty much got me into all of the stuff that I love now...so, I don't necessarily say they're the BEST albums from the 90's, but they definately have a place in my heart, right?

Let's see, I was born in 88, so by the time the 90s ended I was 12.

Fugazi - Red Medicine - Not at all, i wasn't aware of Fugazi's existance until Argument

Neutral Milk Hotel - Ij  I listened to this a fair bit due to my dad liking it. He likes On Avery Island best though.

Radiohead - OK Computer - this and the Bends were staples of my house's stereo during the late 90s.

Belle and Sebastian - If You Are Feeling Sinister - I never listened to Belle
and Sebastian until 3 years ago

Yo La Tengo -I Can Hear The Heart Beating as One - I listened to a large amount of Yo La Tengo, again, because of my dad

You know, I totally understand what you're saying, but all of this implying we can establish some objective assessment that is somehow distinct from how you receive an album is kinda... odd.  

If we decide something is the best album, but it's not something we like listening to, then what are we really saying?  What practical value is there in "goodness" if it's independent of enjoyment?

Bla bla...
