1993: The Cranberries: Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?
1994: Tori Amos: Under The Pink
1995: The Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness

Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins is clearly the best album of 1993, in my opinion.

That's the benefit of having your iTunes music library properly tagged! Stick it into ascending year format and bob's your uncle.

Crap, I forgot Zooropa came out in 93. It's better than Transmissions. I wish I could change my post.

Well judging by your list

1. I wouldn't pay the price shops ask for Beatles' albums and 2. there are other bands I'd much rather buy albums from than Led Zeppelin
