    This is a near-impossible task, especially if you limit yourself to one album per artist like I've done...I've also put the year and my favourite track from the album underneath.

    1. Music for the Jilted Generation - The Prodigy (1994)
    'Their Law'

    2. Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine (1992)
    'Killing In The Name'

    3. Ágætis byrjun - Sigur Rós (1999)
    'Olsen Olsen'

    4. The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails (1994)
    'March of the Pigs'

    5. ...Endtroducing - DJ Shadow (1996)
    'Building Steam With A Grain of Salt'

    6. The Holy Bible - Manic Street Preachers (1994)
    'Revol'

    7. Fear of a Black Planet - Public Enemy (1990)
    'Fight The Power'

    8. Young Team - Mogwai (1997)
    'Katrien'

    9. Mezzanine - Massive Attack (1998)
    'Angel'

    10. Ænima - Tool (1996)
    'Stinkfist'

    It's very hard, and I'm surprised at how rock-heavy my list is, seeing as how much I enjoyed the dance music of the late 90s. 1994 was a great year in music obviously...

    Anyway, what about yours? What do you think of mine?

    morgan...one question re:your list - what happened to the masterpiece that is 'Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too' by New Radicals? This was my favourite album for a long, long time.

    haha, you going to make an 80's thread next?

    not in any order
    • -Massive Attack - Blue Lines
      Unfinished Sympathy
    • -Blur - Parklife
      Girls and Boys, although 13 is also from the 90's and I do prefer it parklife just sounds like a britpop album, it's more 90'sy
    • -Jeff Buckley - Grace
      Lover, You Should've Come Over, Hadn't listened to it for ages, did last night, remembered how ace it is,
    • -Manic Street Preachers - Holy Bible
      Yes - Richey Edwards killed himself, didn't he, you can't make an album like that and not be suicidal.
    • -Portishead - Dummy
      Wandering Star
    • -Radiohead - OK Computer
      Paranoid Android - Best album in the world
    • -Leftfield - Leftism
      Afro-Left
    • -My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
      Sometimes - you have to listen to it soooo loud, but it's amazing
    • -Jurassic 5 - Jurassic 5
      Concrete Schoolyard
    • -Belle and sebastian - Tigermilk
      She's losing it


    Ones that only just missed out
    -Ocean Colour Scene - Moseley Shoals
    -Dave Matthews Band - Before these Crowded Streets
    -Gomez - Bring it on
    -Sebadoh - Harmacy

    Leftism is one of the ones that just missed out in mine...I love Rhythm and Stealth too, one of those unfairly maligned albums if you ask me.

    As for Blur, I really like them but I've never got that into any of their albums, so I'm afraid I'm a bit of a best of fiend when it comes to them.

    Radiohead - I still think Kid A is their best album.

    Oh, you so copied me on the Hanson front. Yearbook spooked me as a child because I knew a Johnny (figuratively; her name wasn't Johnny) and I didn't know where she went. Was Californication 1999? I got it in year 7, but maybe I got it in 2000 and therefore I'm confused. Damn, I wanted to include that.

    Lol, ok you reminded me of it. Thanks for the inspiration But I thought that album was freakin' awesome. I wanted to put 'This Time Around' (their second album) but it was 2000.

    This Time Around is my favourite record of theirs too. If they had waited years to release that as a debut commercial record, I'm sure they wouldn't have had a hit as big as MMMBop but it would have ensured them more credibility. Their last record was such *******s though (a complete regression from This Time Around - over-produced, the lyrics were meaningless, sappy OC-soundtrack stuff). Also, having by a strange sequence of events met them a couple of times (no, I didn't stalk them, it was actually coincidence) I've realised that they genuinely aren't very intelligent people and their fans are stereotypically nutty 20-somethings whose other favourite band is Busted, so I don't really follow them any longer. I still listen to all the records up to This Time Around occassionally though. In fact, I was going to point out that This Time Around was technically their seventh release, but I figured that might make me look like a nutter (though I'm not a 20-something and Busted is certainly not my favourite band).

    I'm sure plenty of people do. But we're only allowed to put our Top 10s, not every album we've ever owned from the 90s. :p:
    If anyone had Crooked Rain or Slanted and Enchanted it would be in their top 10! :p:
