In spirit of all the nines, I’ve decided to limit each description to 99 words per album.

NINETY-NINE NIFTY ALBUMS FROM THE NINETEEN-NINETIES ['90-'99] Introduction
This is hardly a definitive list. I made rules that prevented that from being possible. Like allowing only one album per artist/band/entity/whatever. This is more an attempt at creating a prism through which we can appreciate what the last decade of the twentieth century had to offer, musically at least. (Though doesn’t music often speak to culture, and so much more?) It’s sorta diverse, but still missing many classics. Nonetheless, this list does contain some of my favorite music from the 1990s.
