Nirvana's Smells like Teen spirit is the next best album from that era
Both albums were amazing start to finish
Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger was great too but had a few weak songs that drop it from the list.
Now, if you want to narrow it down to one song, EVEN FLOW by Pearl Jam is when i knew the whole grunge scene was going to be massive. That song was so different than anything in the mainstream and after having gone though the smells like teen spirit thing, EVEN FLOW made you realize you were going to be a part of a movement that was just starting.
I was at the CNE in Toronto and one of the carny's operating one of the rides just left EVEN FLOW on repeat and blasted it all day long. The next day i went to the mall and bought TEN and Badmotorfinger. :->
