Once considered a relatively weak year, 1994's list below has aged quite well, with Mosquito and Tears Laid In Earth both easily among the best of the 90's. Frost is perhaps the first true black metal album to make it to my top ten list.

Youthanasia seems to be a stretch here, as it's hardly Megadeth's best and there are better/more influential albums here. In a list dominated by new and old-styled thrash albums, Dream Theater sticks out like a sore thumb.
