My favourite 15 alternative albums released in 1993

While many sees 1994 as the peak year of alternative music, as many classics such as NIN's The Downward Spiral and The Cranberries' No Need To Argue were released in that year, the year before also saw the release of many favourite alternative albums as well. Here are my favourite alternative albums that are turning/already turned 25 this year.

Shoegaze at its most harrowing, most beautiful, heavenly and one of its best, the best shoegazing album second only to Loveless.
2PJ Harvey
Rid of Me

Ferocious indie rock that will never get rid of in your head once you listen to it.
3Liz Phair
Exile In Guyville

Sex, breakup, toxic relationship, rumours, a musical bible about entering into adulthood.
4The Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream

The chance of making such shoegaze-and-heavy metal-infused classic is less than the chance of appearing a siamese twin.
5Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

Press play for the album, and you will only fade into this dream pop classic.
In Utero

The brilliant last words from the grunge icon, it's grunge at its most abrasive and rawest.
7The Verve
A Storm in Heaven

Just like its title suggest, it is a musical storm in heaven, and it's the band's best.
8Sarah McLachlan
Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

Alluring yet vulnerable, it is the musical equivalent to a bottle full of ecstasy that comforts you after various distraught.
9Catherine Wheel

Just like chrome metalwork, it is smooth, metallic and shiny, and it is one beautiful and brilliant shoegazing art-piece.
10The Cranberries
Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?

No one else can make something so powerful yet vulnerable, joyous yet somber, sweeping musical piece like this.

Cocky, sexy and protesting, a brilliant introduction of the band and Brit-pop to the world.

Brilliant trip-hop-infused debut album that introduces the ever shape-shifting Icelandic musical queen.
13New Order

Guitar pop with synth melodies, it's the band's rawer and more brilliant effort.
14The Breeders
Last Splash

Just because Kim Deal is a brilliant bass player, doesn't mean she's not a good guitarist, and Last Splash is the proof.
15Kate Bush
The Red Shoes

Not really her best, but it is definitely one of her most underrated album among her catalog.
