The 90s are a decade when I sort of stopped listening to a lot of new pop/rock music and concentrated more on jazz and classical and (now-gag!) new age, most of which I'd never listen to now (the new age stuff).  That being said, here are my pop/rock/soul favorites, in no particular order:

Sade - Love Deluxe, Best Of

Seal - Seal (1990), Seal (1993), Human Being

Tower of Power - Monster on a Leash, TOP, Souled Out, Rhythm and Business, Soul Vaccination Live

The Iguanas (New Orleans roots/Mexican/jazz fusion with two sax players!) -  The Iguanas, Nuevo Bugaloo, Super Ball, Sugar Town

Liquid Soul (Acid Jazz/Funk fusion with some rap) - Liquid Soul, Make Some Noise, Here's The Deal.  If more people followed this model, jazz might have become more popular instead of fading into fringe music.

Loreena McKennitt (Celtic/pop/rock fusion) - The Visit, The Mask and Mirror, The Book of Secrets, Live in Paris and Toronto

Anything the jazz/world music fusion band Oregon released in the 1990s is worth acquiring, IMHO.  The same for Yellowjackets, a more electric jazz fusion band that has never relied on drum machines, even in the 1980s.  Another example of a band that knows how to tastefully employ synthesizers!
