Muzix, 1991

A Listmania! list by R.P. Tristram Coffin IV "Handle Your Business." (RVA)
The list author says: "A legendary year; list in progress. Btw even my more realized lists, all of them in progress. What I have though is in order."
Nevermind
1.  Nevermind by Nirvana
The list author says:
  "One of the most freakish examples of shifting popular concensus in music history. When released, Rolling Stone donned it with 3 stars. Within a few months, the building momentum behind Smells Like Teen Spirit changed the pop music aesthetic forever, and the whole of the rock press doubled backed into revisionist historians. Frankly, Nevermind is 1991 AotY by default."
$14.99   Used & New from: $0.24
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,989 customer reviews) | 8 customer discussions

Loveless
2.  Loveless by My Bloody Valentine
The list author says:
  "Kevin Shield's masterpiece is so much more than merely a pillar of shoegaze music. Beneath the fluid production is a set of perfect pop songs that reveal themselves slowly through the lush cinematic haze."
$8.75   Used & New from: $0.55
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (456 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Achtung Baby
3.  Achtung Baby by U2
The list author says:
  "It's still a point of contention among U2 fans which is the better album between this or The Joshua Tree. In fact, music fans in general can be defined by whether you're a Joshua Tree guy or Achtung Baby guy. In any event, this record represents one of the best bands ever at the peak of its powers."
$16.05   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (624 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Blue Lines
4.  Blue Lines by Massive Attack
The list author says:
  "The birth of trip hop by this album has been well chronicled. What is less so is how wonderful this record sounds even 20 years later."
$9.95   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (144 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Laughing Stock
5.  Laughing Stock by Talk Talk
The list author says:
  "A brilliant, opaque masterpiece of sounds that sneaks up on the listener. At first, its difficult even understanding what you hear. Repeat listens reveal one of the most seldom uncovered treasures of its time and a hugely important moment in the development of post-rock."
$10.00   Used & New from: $3.90
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Use Your Illusion I
6.  Use Your Illusion I by Guns N' Roses
The list author says:
  "The last time G'n'R was truly great, at it's time of release I actually preferred UYI2. However, this album has aged much better. It's not as weighed down by over-produced epics and where it is, it features their best, November Rain. The albums only true misstep is Coma, a total mess of Axl ego run amuck."
$8.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (291 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Low End Theory
7.  The Low End Theory by A Tribe Called Quest
The list author says:
  "Tribe's mellow jazz hip hop, tragically, doesn't have much presence on the scene today. However, that only serves to make their contribution more singular. Low End Theory is their best."
$7.00   Used & New from: $1.15
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (227 customer reviews)

Metallica
8.  Metallica by Metallica
The list author says:
  "The album that made metal mainstream, there is no way bands like Korn exist on radio without the success of this album. After the Black Album pop music was forever heavier. Metallica was also one of the few 80s holdovers to be huge in the 90s, and this record still sounds great."
Used & New from: $0.01

Ten
9.  Ten by Pearl Jam
The list author says:
  "Pearl Jam's Ten might be the most purely enjoyable album of the decade. Like Rumours was in '77 its something everyone can agree on. The discs most underated moment is Garden, a track as lush as a song called Garden should be."
$6.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (984 customer reviews)

Innovator
10.  Innovator by Rhythim Is Rhythim / Derrick May / Mayday
The list author says:
  "House music isn't an album based style so this collection of singles represents that musics most profound testament."
Used & New from: $59.99
