|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...
|2||Have A Nice Life|
Awesome debut, possible favorite post-rock album of all-time. Really unexpected when I first heard about it.
A Disease For the Ages
At first I thought it was good, but nothing too amazing...I was wrong obviously.
THANK YOU ZOOYORKER
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.
Crimson opened everyones eyes to this gem.
|7||Lights 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.
|9||Nine Inch Nails|
almost forgot about this one, NIN best record.
Who knew Folk Metal could be so catchy without the cheese.
|11||Exotic 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.
|16||Protest 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.
|18||Steven 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.
|20||Becoming 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.
Twilight of the Thunder God
Was not a fan of these guys, but this was too good to ignore.
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.
Very odd post-rock, but very enjoyable.
We Are the Nightmare
Finally they made a good album again, I almost lost hope there.
