Among a lot of critics, it's an argument between OK Computer, Nevermind, and Loveless (which gets the "Pet Sounds.") This is one of the innate problems with decade debates. A record in 1991 will often be deemed "more important" than one in 1997, even though the 10 years markers are still pretty arbitrary. People heard Nevermind and thought, "hey I could do that." Bands heard OK Computer and considered calling it a day.
Then you have a separate debate between Kid A and OK Computer. Kid A was selected as greatest album of the 00s in various publications. And it could be argued that The Bends was more influential than OK Computer and Kid A.
