|Woohoo I'm 16|
I turn 16 today! :D In honor of this momentous occasion, here are my top 20 all-time favorite albums ranked. Ranking was difficult, so it might not be entirely accurate. Also, there's a lot of albums I've been meaning to hear that just may appear on this list one day, so this might change in a not-so-long amount of time. But as of now, on my 16th birthday, here they are. My all-time favorites. :)
Piece of Mind
The album that let me know how fucking awesome of a genre metal is.
The Eminem Show
See 13. Also, the album that let me know Eminem is one of the greats.
The album that let me know it is indeed possible for calculated bleeps and bloops to sound just as visceral and affecting as a sloppy, emotional guitar melody on a classic emo record. In other words, technology can be human, too.
We Are the Romans
The album that let me know there are indeed metalcore albums that rival the greatness of classic straight-up metal albums.
The Shape of Punk To Come
The album that let me know the sounds of a revolution can be just as awesome by themselves, without being under the 'revolutionary' label.
|15||Explosions in the Sky|
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place
The album that lets me know you can say so much without really saying anything. (Literally, as opposed to 5).
The album that let me know that there is indeed such thing as a perfect album.
The Marshall Mathers LP
The album that let me know how censorship only helps to kill art, and how stupid and hypocritical suburban parents (such as mine) can be sometimes.
The album that lets me know of the sad state this world seems to be in, and that I should be eager to help fix it. Also, the album that lets me know that melody can still be fucking brutal.
The album that lets me know everything is gonna be okay.
|10||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
The album that lets me know that after a long day of monotony, identical to all the others, a little insanity can be quite soothing.
|9||The Mars Volta|
De-loused in the Comatorium
The album that lets me know there are certain escapes out there unlike any other, and how refreshing they are from the rest of the world (this album being one of them).
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
The album that lets me know I'm human, and even though I fuck up a lot, that's no reason to not keep on keepin' on.
The album that lets me know, me, one of the most nostalgic, stuck-in-the-past people I know, that growing up is a natural part of life, and will be just fine.
|6||Circle Takes the Square|
As the Roots Undo
The album that lets me know that anger, despair, and frustration can be just as artfully expressed as any other emotion. (This applies for 4, too.)
|5||Neutral Milk Hotel|
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
The album that lets me know you can say so much without ever really saying anything.
The album that lets me know how lucky I am to have never experienced a break-up as bad as the one that inspired this album (and never will, either ;))
|3||Between the Buried and Me|
The album that lets me know that in spite of all the shit, the world is still a beautiful place.
|2|| ||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
The album that lets me know one day, I will die. But it's okay.
|1||At the Drive-In|
Relationship of Command
The album that lets me know I'm alive.
|I'll finish the descriptions later. :P|

|Happy birthday. List needs moar junz though.|
|Guys, I can't control what I like lol|
And like I said before, 5, 7, 8, and 11 are the only ones I got from sputnik. I loved Jane Doe way before I even knew this site existed lol. Not to brag or anything, I just said that 'cause I knew I'd get "list is so sputnik" comments lol
|I remember when I turned 16. I didn't give a fuck. |

|Happy birthday! Good to know I'm not the only one under 18 on here.|
and actually pretty great list.
|happy birthday, I wish I listened to this kinda music when I was 16, you've got a headstart!|
|I'm 16 too! Haha Birthday was on February, though.|
I'm gonna be quoting the descriptions for 15, 11, 9, 5, and 2, alot now. The description for 8 is the best way I've ever seen someone describe it.
|Wow, thanks. haha :)|
|Get so fucking drunk that you lose your virginity to a girl who you would normally not hook-up but not remember any of it...and not find out for three weeks. |
ow highschool how i miss you
|^Yeah, that sounds awesome. lol|
|my god you're just a kid.|
and of all the maiden albums you could have chose from...
|Happy birthday :]|
It's also Martha Stewart's birthday!
|Jesuslaves, I know they have, musically, better albums, but Piece of Mind is the one that not only introduced me to Maiden, but the one that introduced me to metal as a whole. So whenever I listen to it, I get that kind of...nostalgic, warm feeling, you know?|
|"Get so fucking drunk that you lose your virginity to a girl who you would normally not hook-up but not remember any of it...and not find out for three weeks."|
I can neither confirm nor deny the validity of your story but if it is indeed true, kudos to you for getting THAT intoxicated yet still apparently functioning in the whole erection department. That's more than a little impressive.
|Whoa there's a lot of 16yr olds here. |
Why are you here on your bday. Go out and do something completely stupid and more or less regrettable. Love for your descriptions of 10 and 8 though.
|very well said |
|^ I think I'll save that for tomorrow, I have plans with some friends haha|
|love the descriptions. they make me wanna listen to all the albums I haven't heard on it.|
|Grow up faggot.|
|Congratulations! You're now older than approximately 87.5% of the userbase!|
|Wow, I just threw together all the descriptions, it's cool that people seem to be liking em so much lol|
|i turned 17 on the 9th|
|love this list mate :) and you're only 16?! the descriptions are awesome :)|
