|The Best Of 2005|
The Best of... Series continues with 2005.
Opeth never seems to disappoint. Which each album, they seem to get more progressive while keeping the hard/soft metal charm that's made them so popular.
Spoon's unique brand of indie rock is here just like always; just a little bit more refined and experimental this time around.
|3||Nine Inch Nails|
Horribly underrated album that explored the more mainstream edge of Trent Reznor's pet project. The album was wonderful, the 'dark' vibe it had to it was perfect for the style, its a great album.
Beck just gets older and older and getting better and better. Not as depressing or irritating as Sea Change; a much refreshed Beck took back to the studio in a much lighter adventure.
|5|| ||Bright Eyes|
I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
The lead singer's voice is so haunting, the music is surprisingly delicate and experimental...what else could you want?
Whether you like this band or not, they're unique, they try, and they're pretty cool. Their unique brand of hip-hop influenced rock and the weirdness of their music makes them a worthwhile listen.
|7||The Mars Volta|
Frances the Mute
Even though I'm not really a big fan of their releases outside of their debut, I see what this album is trying to accomplish and how truly good and original this album is.
Not a big fan of the band, but the way this band rocks out while still seeming dignified and 'proper' intrigues me.
You Could Have It So Much Better
Franz Ferdinand has always been a strange band; their music is poppy, much has a much 'darker' vibe and undertone than most rock/pop bands. Rather you like them or not, they're unique and very good.
|10||System of a Down|
System of a Down continues to mature their sound and get it down to a fine tune; the album was much more experimental, but still comes off as if System of a Down is still trying to keep their fans happy.
|That FF album isn't all that great.|
|ha, just bought #1 today...|
i think 10 is one the best of 2005 too.
|10 is really good imo, SOAD's only better album is their debut imo. yeah, i think its better than Toxicity (which has a little too much filler imo) and tis eaily better than STA! and Hypnotize, which were both kinda average.|
|There are actually very few songs on Mezmerize that I can tolerate.|
|Theres better albums from 2005. 1 is great.|
|1 and 10 are awesome.|
|^i've heard the vocals suck, big time...|
|Frances the Mute was released in 05? Really?|
|7 does rule everything on this list.|
|Why is 10 being praised to fuc[size=2]k[/size] all of a sudden? It's a good album, but S/T, Toxicity and Hypnotize were better.|
But what the hell...
*Listens to "This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song"*
And 1 was disappointing for me IMO.
|8 is kinda cool too.|
|#10 is my favorite album of all time. There was a time where I literally listened to it every single day, and it still hasn't gotten old. I'm glad to see it finally get some recognition, because I think it's unfairly overshadowed by Toxicity (which is also an awesome album).|
#3 I think is definitely underrated, as well.
|some oare good but soem are just crap|
