Do you lot deliberately play ‘choose the most obscure band/album’ game without ever revealing the rules, or even admitting to us and each other that you’re playing?
Well, you did admit to having completely lost interest in music through the 90’s, so you can’t then come back and make the above accusation.Posted 1 week ago
Pretty much everyone has mentioned some of the most important and best selling albums during the 90’s, so if you weren’t paying attention…
FWIW, I’m actually struggling to think of something that others haven’t already mentioned!
Mine is probably down at 54. Much better either decades either side.Posted 1 week ago
Looking down that list, albums from 90-92 just feel like they were in a different decade to those from 97-99 to me….Though I also left my teens and entered my 20’s halfway through it all.Posted 1 week ago
I spent a lot of the 10’s thinking the 90s was cack for music, until I recently reassessed my views, considering my midlife crisis etc. Anyway, my ten pennorth;Posted 1 week ago
Faith No More- Angel Dust
Stereolab- Dots and Loops
Sepultura- Chaos AD
DJ Shadow- Endtroducing
It seemed like Radio1 was a bit more grown up then, with Peel, the evening session, Mark&Lard, lots of interesting comedy too.
Not the best, but albums I took a keen interest in. Was 11 in 1990 so teenage listening. In roughly chronological order:
Pet Shop Boys – Behaviour (90/91)
U2 – Achtung Baby
808 State – Gorgeous (93)
Prodigy – Music for the Jilted Generation (94 – a great year)
Radiohead – The Bends
Pink Floyd – The Division Bell
Chicane – Far From the Maddening Crowds
Chicane – Behind the Sun
First two Oasis albums may have made it if they weren’t soured by the absolute rubbish they’ve made since.
Early teen interest in dance music spiked by having older brothers into the dance scene. Memories of one in particular randomly bursting into my room and cutting all sorts of shapes with his top off. Shared a house with 5 brothers and a sister, crazy days but the best of days.Posted 1 week ago
So so many…
I was so lucky to be in my teens and 20s in that decade

It’s a fair point but you tend to gravitate to what your friends and what’s popular at the time.
Takes a few years to find and appreciate the stuff the came before I thinkPosted 1 week ago
I’ll top and tail the decade:
Also sort of agree the most innovative period was from the late eighties till about 94-95.Posted 1 week ago

Definitely Maybe, Dookie and Nevermind are the anglo-saxon albums I still enjoy playing along with.
The 90s were the MTV years. I stopped playing records and just left the TV on with MTV. There were some great MTV sets (and live sets on other channels inspired by the unplugged series) that beat any studio album produced in the 90s IMO:
