First half of the 90's is as good as any part of any decade.

The 90s were the worst decade of my life. And that includes musically. I can't even think of 10 great albums.

Änglagård -- Hybris
Änglagård -- Epilog
Morte Macabre -- Symphonic Holocaust
King's X -- King's X
Blue Öyster Cult -- Heaven Forbid

Although my tastes have changed and I don't listen to these anymore, at the time I would have included these:

Pantera -- A Vulgar Display of Power
Slayer -- Seasons in the Abyss
Dream Theater -- Awake
echolyn -- As the World

I never heard any "grunge" or "alternative" that I liked. Bleak years indeed.

In no particular order (and not more than one per artist):

Jeff Buckley- Grace
Blur- The Great Escape
Garbage- S/T
Guided By Voices- Bee Thousand (but could easily go with Alien Lanes or Under the Bushes, Under the Stars also)
Alice In Chains- Dirt
Tori Amos- Under the Pink
REM- Automatic for the People
Everything But the Girl- Amplified Heart
The Black Crowes- Amorica
Kristin Hersh- Hips and Makers

I could name about twenty or thirty more,
easily...these were just the first ten off the top of my head.

I love Under the Pink and Amorica, though I might go with Little Earthquakes and Southern Harmony, which both seem deeper to me.
