To conclude, here’s a list of the best and most influential albums that shaped the 1990s:

1. Nirvana – Nevermind

‘’The album that guaranteed the nineties would not suck. Every word and note Kurt Cobain wrote for Nevermind now rings with the heavy clang of compound retrospect: his sad, foolish death; the thousand grunge-alikes who aped Cobain’s pain well enough but blew it with the music,’’ Rolling Stone magazine wrote about the cult 1991 album by Nirvana.

Rightfully placed on top of our list, Nevermind has received universal critical acclaim and is considered one of the greatest albums of all time that changed the course of music history.  Released in 1991,
