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

3 Time Chart of the Day!!!!

From 101-200 : https://www.besteveralbums.com/thechart.php?c=72035

The Decade i was born!!!

In my opinion the 2 best decade in music ever, such a variety from Alternative Rock to Hip-Hop and everything in between, First Nirvana exploited with alternative/Grunge album "Nevermind" with other bands exploited at same time like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, etc. this cause grunge and alternative music to the masses like never before, then Kurt died and new groups got massive success and recognition like oasis and radiohead , oasis with "britpop" on England and Radiohead release one of the greatest albums of all time "Ok Computer" making the band the bestband of the second half of the decade, Mexico my country opens the decade with new awesome bands like Cafe Tacvba and Caifanes, with Soda Stereo at the top of the Rock industry in latin-america, and in the pop scene Mariah Carey broke the chart and became the Songwriter with the most quantity of number 1 ever!!! while Luis Miguel Broke the scene in Mexico and Spanish language countries with ballads and covers from the 40s and 50s

Nine Inch Nails, Soda Stereo, 2Pac, Caifanes, Oasis, Nirvana etc...

Hope you can discover new music and share your thoughts with me!!!

For the majority of BEA user's this is the best album of all time

And I cant disagree that much, perfect transition from "The Bends" to a real artistic statement for Radiohead
I just cant get enough of this album and this is not even my favorite album from them, (In Rainbows is) almost perfect record from start to finish, so many emotions, so many different songs and styles, the music here is just AWESOME and the lyrics will let you thinking, absolute CLASSIC

Trent Reznor is a GENIUS
This album will haunt you, if you play this at night is not going to let you sleep
From the context were this album was recorded to the excellent level of production Reznor achieve
Sometimes is good to explore and embrace more “Bad” emotions and this album does it exceptionally

Treznor expressed a lot of what people are timorous to Say or to think.

Hurt, March of the pigs, Closer

The Music for Race For The Prize is Top 10 Ever

You can lost your mind in the atmosphere of this Album, the Magnus Opus for the flaming lips excellent from start to finish, no skips, get a beer and sit down with earphones please (is the best way to listen to this album)
i can understand with people say Wayne Coyne is a ¨bad singer¨ but in rock that doesn't matter all the time (just look at Lou Reed, Tom Waits or Bob Dylan)

I love this Album with my life, i discovered it thanks to this site

Psychedelic Rock / Dream Pop / Art Rock / Symphonic Pop

Race for the Price / Waitin' For A Superman / Feeling Yourself Disintegrate

Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)

This chart is rated in the top 9% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 88.0/100, a mean average of 87.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.2/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 9.8.

You have a good taste in rock music.
I cant stand music that is too electro but to each their own.
You have some more obscure choices that are interesting... Id suggest trying obscure choices in 90s hip hop.

Our nineties charts are pretty different, but there are actually a number of albums on this list that just missed mine (for example, The Downward Spiral, which just barely missed). Not too surprising to see that we both liked OK Computer, although I'm beginning to lose interest in that one. Thom Yorke's arrogance and snobbery might be justified on some level, but it's beginning to feel a little like outright contempt for his audience. Boo to that. But yay to your chart!
