So The Long-Suffering and I bought a house together, and have a child and a foetus. but having been sorting through our now-joint CD collection, I can tell you exactly what we have in common:
Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks
Garbage: Self-titled debut
Radiohead: OK Computer
REM: Monster (an album I've never actually listened to but inherited from my brother and know all the songs off from culture).
So there you have it. the 5 most ubiquitous indie albums of the 90s.
