The list author says: "The 90's gave us Milli Vanilli and MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice but none of them made this list. These are my favourite albums of the 1990's (in order). It isn't the most 'well balanced list' you'll find. I don't care for rap or country or Celine Dion. I limited this list to original recordings of studio albums only (no bootlegs' live albums, or greatest hits compilations allowed)"
