Top 100 Music Albums of the 1990s by Graeme2 (2022)

Ah the 90s. Madchester, rave, shoegaze, grunge, golden age hip hop pt.2, britpop, post rock, trip hop, big beat, drum n bass, creation, mo wax, warp, ninja tunes...and so on. There is not much order here. I love them all. I've made it 1 album only as that's what my other charts are, meaning loads of albums missing that I love.
This is the cd era. I bought more and more of them as the decade went on. Shit loads of cd singles too. Not forgetting vinyl records. Classic albums records could be picked up for pence at car boot sales and charity shops as people got rid for cd. Also getting DJ decks meant loads of those type of records too.

I know what you mean when you say there's no real order in your chart; I can say that there's not much difference in quality between the #1 album on my own nineties chart and the #100 (though there is a kind of logic to my chart, and maybe yours, too). I love OK Computer, Grace, The La's, and Nevermind, among many others on your list. Ride's Nowhere is a fantastic top ten pick, as well--an album that I liked a lot when it first came out but haven't listened to much since. You've given me reason to give it a spin. So, thanks!
