This book is my third and last installment of this accursed reviews odyssey, this edition comprising 3,073 reviews, spanning 518 pages, and about half a million words.

Only albums officially issued in the years 1990 to 1999 were eligible for review. Wholesale rewriting and re-evaluation of reviews that were in the 1997 sourcebook, The Collector's Guide To Heavy Metal, were undertaken, with approximately half the reviews being all new, many to complete catalogues, many more, reviews of ultra-rarities.

The book is the follow-up to Volume 1 - The Seventies, which was 1162 reviews over 344 pages, and Volume 2 - The Eighties which was 2528 reviews over 428 pages. For the record, that's 6763 reviews for the 1290 page three book series. I'm done, I've had it, I'm getting too old for this! : )

Seriously, it was the most work I ever had to do on a book. No pictures this time, and quite tiny type. Really, I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually as much content as the '97 book, just with the one decade. It's quite stuffed full o' words. I included two appendices - my personal Top 100 of the decade, and the Top 100 of the decade calculated from the poll used in my The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time.
