2008: 25 Best Albums

Top 25 albums this year, these are the full length albums...Top Ep's will be later if I feel like it.

Well its Opeth, and its awesome. Enough said, probably my third favorite Opeth album. "Lotus Eater" and "Hessian Peel" are gold. You can bash every other album on this list but this...
2Have A Nice Life

Awesome debut, possible favorite post-rock album of all-time. Really unexpected when I first heard about it.
3Mourning Beloveth
A Disease For the Ages

At first I thought it was good, but nothing too amazing...I was wrong obviously.

5Moving Mountains

No idea why I like this so much, im not a huge fan of post-hardcore, but somehow mixed with post-rock elements made this extremely addicting. I listen to "8105" almost every night.
6In Mourning
Shrouded Divine

Crimson opened everyones eyes to this gem.
7Lights Out Asia
Eyes Like Brontide

Best pure post-rock album of the year, in my opinion of course...
Turning Season Within

Awesome Doom album, wasn't a huge fan of them till this came out.
9Nine Inch Nails
Ghosts I-IV

almost forgot about this one, NIN best record.

Who knew Folk Metal could be so catchy without the cheese.
11Exotic Animal Petting Zoo
I Have Made My Bed In Darkness

Besides the retarded band name, its actually a very good album.

I liked this better than their last album, improved transitions really helped. I just wish they would stop with added random crap in their albums like the rapping at the end of "Deathrace" and the bad techno intro song. Besides that I love this album.
Traced In Air

Im sure you've heard everyone spluged all over this album. So just copy and paste it here.
The Maniacal Vale

Really long but really worth listening too. Funeral Doom FTW

It's Not Me, It's You!

First post-rock album I listen to this year, and it was really good, just got bumped down by albums I liked a bit more.
16Protest the Hero

I really liked this at first but it lost some steam after a while. Maybe I shouldn't have whored it so much in that first month. Ops!

Has some really awesome songs to it, but man he needs to lay off the programmed drumming a tad.
18Steven Wilson

Its Steven Wilson, which means its good. dur...well save No-Man's last album
Beyond The North Winds

Very good record, maybe a tad less impressive than their last but still really good.
20Becoming the Archetype

Wish I had more time to judge this more deeply before my Top 25 came out but thats their fault for releasing it in November.
21Amon Amarth
Twilight of the Thunder God

Was not a fan of these guys, but this was too good to ignore.
22United Nations
United Nations

Interesting Combo, made a good album. It kind of faded after like 20 listens though.
Lost In the Sound of Separation

Their best album, but I think they took too long to make this album for me. It was too much expected. If they made this before Define the Great Line it would have been more impressive.
Stylus Fantasticus

Very odd post-rock, but very enjoyable.
We Are the Nightmare

Finally they made a good album again, I almost lost hope there.
