    What is in your opinion the best album of the 90s.
    For me it would either be OK computer by Radiohead or Automatic for the people by REM.

    If I'd have really choose, it would be OK computer, but it's very close between them. Vauxhall and I by Morrissey and New Adventures In Hi - Fi by REM would be in my top 5 too.

    Mine would be between:
    Nevermind by Nirvana
    Cowboys from Hell by Pantera
    Either of the "Use your Illusions" by Guns N Roses
    Metallica by Metallica
    and a few others I've no doubt forgotten (I just noticed Rage Against the Machine's self-titled debut, and that should be there)

    I'm interested to know why you think OK Computer beats The Bends. For me, it would be a toss up between the two, but I cannot pick between them. Both albums mean so much to me.
