1990s music meme

This one came from atommickbrane. I know I've not done much other than memes lately but somehow this appealed more than the top 100 unread books one. I've read all the Jane Austen OK, and some of the rest, but not War and Peace.

This is Acclaimed Music's aggregate list of the top 107 albums of the 1990s (as of now). Put any that you own in bold. Put any that you have heard all through or used to own in italics. Put a strikethrough any that you hate (whether you've heard them or not!). Underline any you want to hear. And put an asterisk by any that you would count as one of your own favourite albums of the 90s.
