Top 100 Music Albums of the 1990s by Larcx13 (2022)

The 90s has always been my favorite decade. At first it was for the punk and grunge scenes. Later on, I got into hip hop and I prefer it today. Alternative bands like Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, and Foo Fighters are great too.

Top 5 Artists
A Tribe Called Quest
Digable Planets
Mos Def
Sublime
Outkast

A+ // A record that approaches perfection. // 100-96%

A // A great record with only a couple weaker tracks. // 95-91%

A- // A great record that is either over-produced, micro-marketed or just missing something to get rid of that minus. // 90-86%

B+ // A very good record that sometimes flirts with the half-assed. // 85-81%

B // A good record often thoroughly enjoyed by the artist's fanbase. Nothing extraordinary, but definitely decent. // 80-76%

*** // Honorable Mention. For those who cherish it. // 80-79%

** // Honorable Mention. For those who enjoy it. // 78-77%

* // Honorable Mention. For those who like its over-riding aesthetic. // 76-75%

B- // Has a fair few good tracks but is either too long, too repetitive, or just plain too much of something at times. // 75-71%

C+ // A hackwork kind of record. Pick and choose your favorites. // 70-66%

C // Professional record with seemingly no substance OR a decent try at something different. Often corny. // 65-60%

C- // Honest work that doesn't quite cut it. Also often quite corny. // 59-50%

✂️ // 1 or 2 good songs could be cut out and added to a greatest hits album. // 49-45%

💣 // A grade of D, E or F lands a "dud". It fails in every way. // 44-0%

The chart is good.
I´m just not into hip hop, that´s why I don´t give a higher rating.

lmao dude we fucking get it you LOVE 90s rap lmao (and some punk fuck yea!). Look into some other things maybe: Neutral milk hotel pretty much invented indie before it even existed, the smashing pumpkins and depeche mode (nine inch nails too) are great when you are depressed lmao, oasis and blur were pretty popular, REM can be cool sometimes, U2 is pretty classic rock stuff, Bjork is some crazy experimental popish electro, OMG i just remembered DJ muthafreaking shadow who made SICK beats you will love them (freestyle over them lol), modest mouse for gay indie shit, that fucking black record from metallica lmao??, Beck is pretty experimental but its good 90s rock, TOOL if you like mathematics or heroin, the verve for some angsty pop rock, godspeed you black emperor is Canadian sort of noisy drone music, if you like heavier shit there is always MEGADEATH, pixies made some shit in the 90s too, some rap you missed dr dre the chronic and lauryn hill, Moby for some electronic music, Ween for some hilarious shit, omg dude there is just too much i give up... Massive Attack, Prodigy, Fugazi, etcc etc etc
