Think 90s music, and your first thought is probably Britpop, right?
Of course, it’s true that the 90s was home to Oasis vs Blur and some of the best British guitar music ever, but there’s so much more to the decade than that.
Whether it be hip hop, American rock, trip hop or electronica, there was so much great music made in the 90s, that it’s sometimes hard to know where to start.
So, loaded thought we’d put together a list of the 11 albums that made the 90s such a great decade for music – here’s the shortlist:
Automatic For The People – R.E.M
After years of critical acclaim, R.E.M decided to make themselves REALLY famous with the release of Automatic for the People in 1992. The mega-hit Everybody Hurts took them to new levels of success, and the brilliant Man On The Moon and the fan-favourite Nightswimming established Automatic For The People as one of the best, and most popular albums of the decade.
