1991: The Best Year For Music Ever?

As the anniversaries of 20-year-old albums continue to roll in, it dawns on me: was there ever a better year for popular/indie music?  Consider that 1991 saw the release of Nevermind, Achtung Baby, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Loveless, Blue Lines, Ten, Out Of Time, Trompe Le Monde, Girlfried, Gish, and, incredibly, Metallica's Black Album.  Clearly, U2, Nirvana, RHCP, Pearl Jam, Matthew Sweet, and perhaps REM, were never better, and My Bloody ValentinePixies, Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica  and Massive Attack achieved career highs that year, too.
