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.
1Opeth
Watershed


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
Deathconsciousness


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.
4Kalisia
Cybion


THANK YOU ZOOYORKER
5Moving Mountains
Pneuma


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...
8Draconian
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.
10Eluveitie
Slania


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.
12Deadlock
Manifesto


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.
13Cynic
Traced In Air


Im sure you've heard everyone spluged all over this album. So just copy and paste it here.
14Esoteric
The Maniacal Vale


Really long but really worth listening too. Funeral Doom FTW
15 pg.lost
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
Fortress


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!
17Mirrorthrone
Gangrene


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


Its Steven Wilson, which means its good. dur...well save No-Man's last album
19Sig:Ar:Tyr
Beyond The North Winds


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


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.
23Underoath
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.
24Sgt.
Stylus Fantasticus


Very odd post-rock, but very enjoyable.
25Arsis
We Are the Nightmare


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