The early Nineties waxed and waned musically, with variable offerings of guitar-centric albums. Halfway through the decade, though, there was a downpour of milestone -- if not at least memorable -- records.
Metal struck back in 1994 with now-classic albums from Megadeth, Pantera and Slayer. But grunge had its own album arsenal to draw fire from. Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam all released seminal albums that year, too.
