This is just incredibly ignorant. I know I shouldn't get worked up, but this really annoys me. Fair enough if hip-hop isn't your thing but you have to have legitimate reasons. You can't dislike an entire genre because you've heard five songs and you heard a lyric like "fuck bitches" or something. I strongly dislike metal. I've said ignorant things about it in the past but now I am happy to acknowledge that there's a lot of talent that goes into the music, and I've listened to it with an open mind, but it's just not my thing.

You should listen to Aquemini. Try this track. If you don't like it, fair enough. But it proves that your comments about hip-hop are ignorant.

Outkast - SpottieOttieDopaliscious - YouTube

2. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F#A#
3. dEUS - In A Bar, Under the Sea
4. Radiohead - OK Computer
5. Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun

Somebody mentioned Whip-Smart. I can't believe I forgot Liz Phair's first album, Exile in Guyville (1993)!! That is an all-time classic that pisses all over every grunge album ever made by hairy men with flannel shirts.

It's a masterpiece, and definitely the more "important" album. I just found Whip-Smart to be a little more adventurous musically and lyrically. Close call, though.

Wow, this is hard. Most of my favorite artists come from this era, but for many, I judge over a span of albums; none of the individual (90's) albums floor me from start to finish (Sunny Day Real Estate, Matthew Sweet, R.E.M., Pearl Jam). And I'm shocked how many 90's artists I only got into in the 2000's to present (Flaming Lips, Built to Spill, Wilco). No particular order.

Ride - Nowhere
The Sundays - Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic
Blur - Parklife
Pavement - Brighten the Corners
Radiohead - OK Computer
Pale Saints - The Comforts of Madness
Counting Crows - Recovering the Satellites
U2 - Achtung Baby
Built to Spill - Keep It Like a Secret
Flaming Lips - Soft Bulletin

Great choice - this would probably crack my top ten as well. As would Tom Waits's Bone Machine.
