Two Years, Bitches!

Favourite 25 albums. I thought my music tastes have really expanded (and they have) but my list is still dominated by bands I knew of before I came here. Maybe time will change my mind.
1Underoath
Lost In The Sound of Separation


I have no idea how it did it, but it's wormed its way up to become my favourite album of all time. Considering I first gave it only a 3/5 thats impressive.
2Deftones
White Pony


Only recently rousted from its spot of favourite, I just never get bored of this album.
3The Butterfly Effect
Imago


I know most people who've heard this will disagree but I just find it an amazing emotional journey.
4Kamelot
The Black Halo


The perfect power metal album. Threatens to get old, but never actually does.
5Protest The Hero
Kezia


Another relatively recent find thats scaled the ladders of my musical heart. Still finding new things with every listen.
6R.E.M.
Automatic For The People


My first real band I listened to (I'm obviously not counting boy bands *cringes*). Nightswimming is probably my favourite song of all time.
7Counting Crows
Hard Candy


My sound of summer, invariably manages to lighten my mood. Despite what you might think, this is actually a sputnik album.
8Bloc Party
A Weekend In The City


Another one alot of people will vehemently disagree on, but to me this is Bloc Party at their best. Complex drum beats, good production values, immense emotion.
9Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me


For some reason the cover of this CD put me off for a long time, I thought it would be just some elitist, arty music. Boy was I wrong.
10Revis
Places For Breathing


Undeniably generic, mainstream rock. But I love it anyway.
11Thrice
The Alchemy Index Vols. III and IV...


Earth disk is ridiculously good. And the Air disk has some of the best lyrics Thrice has produced.
12Karnivool
Themata


Complex, groovy Australian music lead by an exquisite voice. Hoorah.
1310 Years
The Autumn Effect


Proclaimed by many as Tool rip-offs. My problem with that is that 10 Years completely lacks the pretensiousness (as well as the technicality), but have a better lead singer. The last song is best heard through earphones while standing in the rain.
14Coldplay
Parachutes


Another of my first bands I listened to, this remains my favourite album by them. Don't Panic is an extremely good song.
15 Nine Inch Nails
Ghosts I - IV
16In Flames
Clayman


The riffs on this album are stupendously cool. Swim remains my fav riff of all time.
17The Killers
Hot Fuss


This was basically my soundtrack when I went to England for a month earlier this year.
18Keane
Hopes & Fears


Another early band for me. This album blows all subsequent ones they've done out of the water.
19Linkin Park
Hybrid Theory


Yeah, yeah, I know, its Linkin Park, instantly makes the list worthless. Well, I disagree. This album never ever gets old for me. The perfect showcase of angst, and when I'm feeling angsty, its still a great listen.
20Scar Symmetry
Holographic Universe


I'm not sure if it should be here as I've only been listening to it for a week or so, but its so damn good.
21Black Light Burns
Cruel Melody


Who'd have thought a dude from Limp Bizkit would make something this good?
22Deftones
Saturday Night Wrist


The only band that appears twice! So psyched for Eros.
23Jimmy Eat World
Bleed American


Pop rock at its absolute finest.
24Lion King OST
Album


CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT? ITS ENOUGH FOR KINGS AND VANGABONDS...
25Evanescence
Fallen


This is here purely for sentimental value. I don't actually think its particularly great musically, but I associate it with some strong memories.
