"It's a tough choice between OK Computer and The Bends for Radioheads best album of the 90's but either way theyre great. Ive never found a more original band that held this level of talent on every front, from songwriting to singing to guitar solos the band makes their fairly simple sound into an intricate delicacy."
"Possibly the best made album of all time the Blue Album is simply the best alt/rock album of the 90's without a question. From the start of My Name is Jonas to the outro in Only in Dreams the album is relentless with its simple and sweet punk inspired alt music. Other Weezer stuff from the 90's (even Pinkerton) is worth checking out as well."
"The number of ways this album amazes are innumerable. For a band who has put out a lot of crap after the 90's this album and a few of their other early releases (Definitely Maybe, Be Here Now) are brilliant. Never a disappointment."
"Billy Corgan's virtuosic guitar style, grungey singing and intelligent lyrics made Smashing Pumpkins a totally different style of band. This album contains hits "Today" and "Cherub Rock" as well as the pumkins best song "Mayonnaise." ItÂs hard to describe the shear brilliance."
"Whether or not this is their best album can be argued but the bands brilliance and originality are unquestionable. Vs. includes such masterpieces as "Daughter" "Dissident" "Go" "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town" and "Rearview Mirror""
"Superdrag maybe one of the biggest surprises on the list. "Sucked Out" is the only song the majority of radio listeners would know. But Superdrags post grune/pop punk sound is something that never ceases to amaze me. Songs like "Nothing Good Is Real" just seep to the heart in a way that only pre-emo rock can."
"ItÂs hard to say why Blind Melon didnÂt get huge. They were talented, released a few albums and their lead singer died. That was the recipe for huge success in the 90Âs. Even without huge success the bandÂs one hit was enough to allow me to hear their multitudes of great rock."
"Sure the Foo Fighters are just Dave Grohl's second band following Nirvana. But in actuallity Foo is actually entirely different, and quite possibly, better than Nirvana for their unique grunge stylings."
"Ive listened to Guster since the only album they had was Parachute and sine then I have seen the band grow towards their best album Lost and Gone Forever released in 1999. Since the band has become famous with their ultra poppy hits but their style has lost its originality that could only come from two guitars and a bongo."
"Bush is the epitomy of Hard rock/Brit rock. They sound good even if what they say doesnt really make sense. Glycerine's romantic and emotional while Everything's Zen and Machine Head are radical and angry. Brilliant."
"The Cranberries!? yeah theyre really one of the best of the 90's. No Need to Argue!? yes, its really better than their debut "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" The album is powerful, beautiful, original and holds about five of the bands best hits from Zombie and Ode to My Family to I Can't be With You and Ridiculous Thoughts. Its good."
"One of the most angry and powerful bands of the 90's RATM offered the best music that anyone could hope to put on a warm up mix. Their debut album with Killing in The Name of and Bombtrack is pretty much on par with both Evil Empire with Bulls On Parade and The Battle of Las Angeles with Calm Like a Bomb and Testify. Basically the best hip hop/hard rock mix out there."
"Different, full of attitude, and amazingly fun Beck is the best solo artist of the 90's (and the only one to make this list). His brand of hip-hop/pop/grunge/rock/whatever is a great eclectic mix that shows in songs like "Where its At" and "Devil's Haircut" from this album as well as "Loser" "Nobody's Fault But My Own" and countless other masterpieces."
"Similar to Beck or Pete Yorn, Eels offer a sad pop album with new sounds, chilling lyrics and throaty vocals. This album, written shortly after the loss of a parent and a sister of the lead singers family, starts off very sad and cruises through eventually striking a beautifully optimistic and lively end in "P.S. You Rock My World""
"The best "space rock" band of all time Hum's hit "Stars" is just one part of a multi-dimensional power that is You'd Prefer an Astronaut. They are very undeserving of the one hit wonder status they hold."
"Chris Cornell is,to simply put it, amazing. Another grunge band on the list of best 90's stuff, i guess itll have to be the last (sorry to Stone Temple Pilots). Soundgarden has a dark but interesting sound in songs like Spoonman and Fell on Black Days. The album is the only real great one by the group but it alone is essential to any grunge listener."
