Best 90's albums in retrospect

Of course we'll all have the same #1-

AB!!!

after that is the question. What do you say? It wasn't a great decade for music IMO.

1- AB
2- What's the Story Morning Glory- Oasis
3- Out of Time- REM
4- Grave Dancer's Union- Soul Asylum
5- Californication- Red Hot Chili Peppers

No, I'm not going to pick POP or Zooropa, or Nevermind or 10 because they are not my favorites. Make your own list!

I would like to add

Gin Blossoms: New Miserable Experience
Wallflowers: Bringing Down the Horse

I forgot about those!

I hope no one feels obligated to put some U2 on there if they don't really want to just because they're your favorite band. I'm still waiting for the Nevermind and Ten fans.

U2 - Achtung Baby: U2's return album, and the one that established them as a real rock band that can survive their own 80's success.

Nirvana - Nevermind: I can't say anything else about this album that hasn't already been said. We all know what it did for the music industry in the early 90's.

Soundgarden - Superunknown: This album is pure intelligent hard rock bliss. 15 songs on this album and all of them could of been released as singles. Soundgarden was one of the last few bands that actually had good songs from start to finish on their albums.

Jeff Buckley - Grace: Haunting. This only hinted at what he could of done, had he not died 3 years later.

REM - Automatic For The People: I liked this album more than Out Of Time. I believe had they not released Out Of Time and put Losing My Religion on AFTP it would of been a master piece.

Jane's Addiction - Ritual De La Habitual: Art rock at it's best. This album released in 1990 was ahead of it's time and was a small signal for the big change that was to occur in the industry a year later. Great Album.

I can't believe alot of you picked POP as one of your favorite top 5 albums of the decade. This forum should be called
"Anything U2 does is Perfection, no matter how mediocre". But, I won't get more into it as this is a losing argument. Am I going to get bashed for saying this?

So here are my top 5 in no particular order.

Achtung Baby - U2
Nevermind - Nirvana
OK Computer - Radio Head
Ultra - Depeche Mode
Urban Hymns - The Verve
