Jar of Flies. Is there any doubt?

Oh, lost my woman and forgot my friends
Things I've done and where I've been
Sleep in sweat, the mirror's cold 
Seen my face, it's growin old
Scared to death, no reason why
Do whatever to get me by
Think about the things I've said
Maybe I'll wake up cold and dead...

Lots of good music here. I'll add one for the rap category

Good songs but perfect interludes, a great full listening album.

Always felt that the 90's actually began when Nevermind hit the shelves, and ended when Kid A was released. 

Will have to check out The Chronic.

I remember getting my review cassette of Nevermind. On just the first listen we were like, this is going to change things. 

I'd also add this to the list:

Live like the band Live

Bloodline-1994

Supergroup without being a supergroup. Only bummer is the recording is subpar to the stuff now and lacks the punch it should have.

Mother Love Bone "Apple" 1990 Different release "Mother Love Bone" compilation 1992. Taking dates off wiki, too long ago to remember exactly. Still one of my favorite albums of all time.

Frizzle Fry is better.

Oh, and my favorite Morphine albums are Cure For Pain and Like Swimming.

Check the liner on the back of that one, final mixing was done at Sheffield recording studios in Phoenix, MD by some sound engineer who worked for IMP at the time.

We were lucky to see them live once. Good is also terrific.

Man, I forgot that they were even going through drummers then...

 

Obviously not mother love bone, but Stone and Ed's banter on the intro is classic. (And Matt is doing well and should be back this week).

Chris Cornell still hurts. It totally sucks. Reach out if you have a friend like that or if you feel like that.

I still stick with RHCP as best album.

And one more before bed. A lot of legendary metal albums come from the '80s, but 1990 gave us what might be the genre's quintessential song.

Ok, I've had some time to think.

Facelift - Alice in Chains, just loaded with classics

Ritual de lo habitual -Jane's addiction, if you were able to see them tour in promotion of this, you understand

Slim shady LP. - Eminem, aside from "my name is" really a great album overall and where I think he really made his mark. 

Antichrist Superstar - Marylin Manson. I'd say their best album overall, with Holywood a close second. Personal favorite to this day. 

 

It's really hard to choose. Grunge, the experimental metal, bizarre Indies, all the directions rap was going, there was a ton of good music in the 90s.
