Following our awesome Best Album of the 2000s
post, we want to continue our journey through music history and move on to the 1990s.
This weeks question is:
What were the best albums of the 1990s?
It was an exciting time for rock music. Contrived 80s hair metal dropped out of fashion when a new breed of rock acts stepped forward, namely Guns N' Roses
who represented two new definitions of what it means to be a rock star.
Independent music was thriving, and for major labels invested in scores of genuinely exciting underground acts. The result: lots of high-energy rock albums recorded in premium studio facilities. Independent rock never sounded so good.
At the same time, music TV helped bring a wider audience to niche music genres. By 1997, music sales were at an all time peak, and experimental releases by bands like Radiohead
signalled a new era of premium music production.
Little did they know that digital downloads would soon devastate the record industry.
The rules are simple: the album had to be released between 1990 and 1999. Name one nomination per comment, or the votes won't count.
Remember to upvote any nominations that your agree with. We'll stack up the results for an epic weekend playlist on Friday after trawling through your posts.
Over the coming year, we'll be visiting older decades. Keep an eye out for the Wednesday question posts if you want to join in.
Keep your nominations rolling in, and vote for as many as you can!
