Pitchfork's "Top 100 Albums of the '90s [1999 version]"
From the original introduction of Pitchfork’s original "Top 100 Albums of the ’90s" list:
Our list was totaled in the fairest way I could think of— I would send an e-mail out to all our reviewers and ask them to turn in a list of their personal Top 100 albums of the 1990s, ranked in order from #100 to #1. I specified that the list should not concern what the writers felt was the "most important," "best" or "most influential" recordings of the decade, instead that it should be their favorite albums— the albums they most enjoyed listening to. All writers were encouraged to participate, but creating a list of 100 albums of any kind is not an easy thing to do. In the end, more than half of us got involved and worked our asses off until our lists were exactly (or as close as possible to) how we wanted them. (That’s how cool we are.) Brent DiCrescenzo did us all a great favor by figuring out a fair points system and compiling all our lists into a singular Top 100 that would represent the participants’ favorite albums of the decade. And here it finally is.
Note: Pitchfork updated this list in 2003 (see the updated version:http://www.listsofbests.com/list/5365 ).
