Which one is the best album of the early 90's
probably Nevermind, but Siamese Dreams was pretty kickass. I'm not familiar with the other 3.
Alice in Chains-Dirt
Snow-12 Inches of Snow
Smashing Pumpkins-Siamese Dream
Ha. I'm a dumbass. I actually knew Pearl Jam and Snow. And the AIC album kicks ass. I might go Ten, Nevermind, Dirt, Siamese Dreams, Snow. On any given day though I could probably switch 1 and 2, and 3 and 4.
Out of those choices, Siamese Dream.
Of course, out of the entire early 90s, I would take Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain; The Blue Album; or Motorcade of Generosity over any of those. I consider grunge a transitional phase to the exciting and fun part of the 90s.
Yeah but u have to admit that Snow was the most badass Canadian White Rastafarian rapper of 94.....and its not even close
If by "exciting and fun" you mean "dull, unimaginative, and inherently redundant", then I agree with you.Originally Posted by Tom

Nevermind wasn't a solid album all the way through. It had good to great songs, but there were some bad ones you skipped over. I could listen to Ten all the way through over and over.

Nevermind was the album that killed glam metal and placed a new genre of music on the national consciousness (even though it wasn't the first album from the Seattle bands). Its influence on the course of music, even to this day, cannot be overstated. Even though it's not my favorite album of the decade, it's the most influential album of the 90s. It's influence is far greater than one can imagine simply by looking back and comparing which was the best album of that era.
Best: Ten, then Siamese Dream a close 2nd
Most Influential: Nevermind
I wasn't a fan of Alice in Chains and I never listened to Snow because he was another Vanilla Ice.

That's exactly the problem with Nirvana. Their influence was spectacular, but Nevermind's greatness is completely overblown because of it. Glam was going to die anyway. Nirvana certainly was the band to put the nail in the coffin, but even if they didn't do it, someone else would have. Nevermind is terribly produced compared to In Utero, which is actually the better Nirvana album. In Utero is a fantastic album. Nevermind is just boorrrring and repetitive. I loved it too for a few good years, but I have no idea how people can still hear "Smells Like Teen Spirit" 20 years later and have an orgasm over it after all the incredible stuff that's come out since then. It's a decent song, but it's nothing more than a nostalgic product of the time.Originally Posted by destroya
Siamese Dream was an incredible album. So was Ten. So was Dirt. All better albums than Nevermind.
Rage Against the Machine - s/t
That's because you have terrible taste in music. :D Look, I was a flannel freak well before Nevermind broke, and we original grunge fans never considered Pearl Jam to have any credibility whatsoever. Gossard and Ament put their band together and then went away from the sound that typified the Seattle scene in favor of the big arena rock cheeseball shlock so they could get a big ass recording contract. The truth is that Pearl Jam was never grunge. They were as much of a joke to me then as Creed is now. Pearl Jam got lucky because of Kurt Cobain's exceptional songwriting. Were it not for Nevermind, Pearl Jam never would've gained the audience they got after grunge broke.Originally Posted by HookemMatt
Nevermind is the only correct answer to this question. Pearl Jam is not even in the discussion.

My favorite rock albums from the early 90's:
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream. This album is solid from top to bottom.
Great radio singles: Cherub Rock, Today, Disarm, Rocket
Awesome longer epic tracks: Hummer, Mayonaise
Pleasant soft tracks winding it down: Spaceboy, Sweet Sweet, Luna
Rage Against the Machine - Self Titled. Greatest riffs, kicks ass live, gets you fired up.
MBV was truly genius. They were the Led Zep to Nirvana's Beatles. (No judgement there.)Originally Posted by Texas Flood

which include the world wide hit
Ice Ice Baby
no it wasn't. Congrats on your populous and incorrect statement. This album had nothing to do with the downfall of $#@! metal. The wheels were set in motion well before Nevermind was even released, although it's certainly a cool and hip thing to sayNevermind was the album that killed glam metal and placed a new genre of music on the national consciousness (even though it wasn't the first album from the Seattle bands). Its influence on the course of music, even to this day, cannot be overstated. Even though it's not my favorite album of the decade, it's the most influential album of the 90s. It's influence is far greater than one can imagine simply by looking back and comparing which was the best album of that era.
with that said, this album certainly changed record execs view of a certain genre for a brief period in time. Hence the commercially successful grunge bands of the era
Nevermind wasn't a "best" album by any means, it was a conversation starter
Did someone really list Pearl Jam and Creed in the same sentence? wow
Ten would get my vote
Out of all those, my favorite is Nevermind.
But here is my favorite album of the 90s:
This is my second favorite:
I'm probably the only person in the world who likes In Utero more than Nevermind...
I don't get all the love for Siamese Dream. For my money, Gish is a far better album.
Ritual de lo Habitual by Jane's Addiction. That album was truth.
This thread doesn't make any sense at all without a mention of the Pixies last album, Trompe le Monde.
In retrospect, they all suck.
Nevermind- Groundbreaking for its time. Loud music that you could rage with and would piss your parents off. But, did the lyrics even make sense?
Ten- Good songs. The only problem is that they all $#@!ing sound the same and Eddie Vedder can't sing for $#@!. (Throw in another growl there Eddie) Why don't you just change your name to "Axl Vedder" and be done with it?
Dirt- Alice in Chains is decent, but I never understood the love affair they got back in the day. They may as well have been the Gin Blossoms or Blind Melon. Generic radio rock.
Siamese Dream- Most emo $#@! ever complete with simplistic guitar riffs and lyrics. Billy Corgan can also kiss my ass. (But that's another story)
umass was one of my favorite songs back during that time.Originally Posted by bozo_casanova
start to finish:
Siamese Dream>Pisces Iscariot>Gish but I liked all 3
Although the Smashing Pumpkins are not my favorite band of that era, I would definitely have to go with Siamese Dream as the best album.
Hum had a couple of bad ass albums which have been over over looked. Downward is Heavenward in particular is pretty nice.
one of these things is not like the others...Nevermind, Dirt, Ten, 12 Inches of Snow, Siamese Dream
Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
And grunge $#@!ing sucks. Period. It's dull, repetitive bull$#@!. It has no more artistic merit than a Guitar World magazine, which coincidentally is the only thing that still raves about the era. It's completely responsible for bands like Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, and Staind.
"But..but...they killed 80s metal!!@1"
They sure did. Congrats on killing the only era in the history of rock music that might have been $#@!tier than yours.
[/angry internet nerd rant]
grunge rocked. ya'll just didn't get any pussy in middle school.
Dr. Dre - The Chronic was my favorite of that era, but that clearly isn't the question here
Ten was the best from beginning to end
Nevermind had the most top 10 songs of those albums
Siamese Dream was damn good as well
What's sad to me is that Pearl Jam F'n sucked after Ten, and everyone still acts like they are gods. In Utero was a fantastic album that for some reason didn't get the acclaim that $#@!ty PJ albums did.
The other albums suck.
