100 Best Selling Albums of the 90'sby Chris Barrett
This is the essential guide to the 100 best/i>
The 1990s was a time of musical diversity, with hip-hop and R&B jostling with country and rock for control of the charts. More than any other album, Nirvana's Nevermind defined a new sound, breaking into the mainstream with the punk and metal-influenced 'grunge' that spoke to a generation of disaffected youth.
This is the essential guide to the 100 best-selling albums of the decade, based on sales awards from the Recording Industry Association of America and the British Phonographic Industry. From Achtung Baby to...Baby One More Time, all the decade's top-selling albums are featured, together with the sleeve artworks. Each album entry is packed full of information, including a track listing, musician and production credits, and facts about the album. A fascinating companion guide for anyone with a love of 1990s music.

What a great idea to compile the greatest albums of each decade into a book. The whole book is great except that it is missing an album. Get a Grip by Aerosmith, which sold 7 million albums as of ten years ago, is somehow misplaced from the book. If it were in the book, it would rank somewhere towards the middle. Anyone who listened to this album or grew up with Aerosmith and bands like them knows that it is a great album and a great piece of 90's nostalgia. It was highly popular thanks to the band's signature style and Alicia Silverstone being in three of their videos. Yet, it is completely overlooked or forgotten. Regardless, an inaccurate book is something not worth buying.
