Iced Earth: Studio Albums - Best To Worst

Iced Earth is a well known name in the realm of metal. Mixing trash-, heavy-, and power-metal to create their own style. This list is my opinion of what is their greatest album, and which one is their worst.
1Iced Earth
Burnt Offerings

Iced Earth's greatest album to date. The first album with Matt Barlow, and also their angriest/darkest album. Filled with rage and burning turmoil. Songs such as the title track, Diary, Burning Oasis, Creator Failure, and Dante's Inferno are all classics.
2Iced Earth
Something Wicked This Way Comes

While the song arrangement is horrible (heavy song, sof song, heavy song, soft song etc), this album is filled with some of Iced Earth's greatest material. Burning Times, Disciples Of The Lie, Watching Over Me, My Own Savior, 1776, and the little triology at the end are all superb.
3Iced Earth
night Of The Stormrider

Iced Earth's second album, and the only one with vocalist John Greely. Angels Holocaust, The Path I Choose, Desert Rain, Pure Evil, and Travel In Stygian are the best on the disc.
4Iced Earth
Horror Show

Matt Barlow's last album before he returned in 2008. Great concept. Wolf, Damien, Jack, Frankenstein, Dracula, and The Phantom Opera Ghost are the highlights.
5Iced Earth
The Glorious Burden

The first album with Tim "Ripper" Owens. A bit too patriotic for my taste, but the musical aspect is marvelous. Declaration Day, Attila, Red Baron/Blue Max, and the Gettysburg triology are excellent.
6Iced Earth
The Dark Saga

Saved by Matt Barlow's voice which turns some of the most boring songs into gems. Some of the riffs may sound recycled and rather dull, but the great songs are really great. I Died For You, Violate, Vengeance Is Mine, and the little triology at the end are the disc's best.
7Iced Earth
Iced Earth

Iced Earth's first album. Gene Adam's voice may seem extremely annoying at first, but whe you get used to him, he isn't that bad. The title track, Written On The Walls, Life And Death, The Funeral, and When The Night Falls are awesome.
8Iced Earth
Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Pt. 1)

The second album with Tim "Ripper" Owens. A bit complicated concept and too many interludes. Something Wicked (Part. 1), Setian Massacre, Ten Thousand Strong, The Clouding, and the title track are great though.
9Iced Earth
The Crucible of Man

Iced Earth's worst album is their latest offering. The second part in the Something Wicked saga. Extremely boring riffs and half-finished songs drags this album down. Not even Matt Barlow can save this. Highlights are In Sacred Flames/Behold The Wicked Child, Crown Of The Fallen, I Walk Alone, Crucify The King, and Come What May.
