Really fantastic list and showcases the 90s for what they were - the best decade ever for music. More genres, more inniovation, more tunes.

I've selected my favourites.

I was always rather fond of EBTG's "Missing" especially in my lovesick teenagery days... glad to see that one made it up there.

The CD's I wore out from overplaying (well, the first was a cassette) were Enigma's MCMXC, Ace of Base's The Sign, Nirvana's Nevermind, NIN's The Downward Spiral, Duncan Sheik's self-titled album, and Robert Miles' Dreamland.

I thing your list is deficient in that it misses alot of the most defining music of the nineties, you have basically ignored dance music.
