Ninety is the second full-length album and first on ZTT Records by British house music pioneers 808 State, released in 1989 and featuring the UK Top 40 single "Pacific State" which reached #10 in November 1989. It was released in the US as Utd. State 90, without "The Fat Shadow," but with other bonus tracks.

Slant Magazine listed the album at #54 on its list of the "Best Albums of the 1980s" saying "A thrilling expansion of the possibilities for acid house and arguably the best LP ever produced in the style".[2]
