43Arcade Fire
Funeral


Arcade Fire likes to fill their suffering with bombast

39Isis

A post-metal epic
38Joy Division
Closer


Ian Curtis was probably the saddest man to ever live
37Incubus
Morning View


Before they got really queer
36Atmosphere
Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere EPs


A collection of EPs turns out to be far better than any full-length they ever released
35Alice In Chains
Jar Of Flies


AiC's lighter side shows that even stripped down they were the best songwriters of the grunge era
34Between The Buried And Me
Alaska


BTBAM before they started fucking their instruments
33Glassjaw
Worship And Tribute


Daryl and Co create a post-hardcore masterpiece
32Elliott Smith
Either/Or


Round two for Elliott
31Black Star
Black Star


Mos Def and Talib Kweli join forces to create a stunning hip-hop album
30Botch
We Are The Romans


An utterly perfect metalcore album in every way
29Brand New
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me


Jesse Lacey finally realizes all that potential, and in the process proves that he is the most talented artist to ever have been in Taking Back Sunday.
28Alice In Chains
Dirt


A harrowing depiction of drug use and easily the best album from the grunge era
27Wolves In The Throne Room
Two Hunters


American black metal that shoos away corpsepaint in favor of eating dirt
26 The Who
Who's Next


A legendary band decides to play around with electronics and it is a brilliant decision
25Radical Face
Ghost


Indie brilliance
24At The Drive-In
Relationship Of Command


See 23
23Refused
The Shape Of Punk To Come


Ripped off by everyone and for good reason
22Aesop Rock
Labor Days


The king of absurdism at his best
21Opeth
Damnation


By far Opeth's softest album. It also happens to be their best.
20Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica


Modest Mouse shows that they can be a little off and still write cohesive and meaningful songs.
19Thrice
Vheissu


Thrice shows that they can experiment with the best of them.
18Coheed and Cambria
In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3


Utterly brilliant album, and a level they will never reach again.
17Deftones
White Pony


The reason nu-metal will never die. Well, that and middle school goth kids.
16Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


So many crazy layers converging to make in incredibly cohesive final product
15The Dillinger Escape Plan
Calculating Infinity


Mathcore(not a real genre) before it was cool
14Modern Life Is War
Witness


Absolutely stunning hardcore album, and one whose sound is being ripped off by everyone.
13 The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Let's Face It


Best ska album ever
12Goo Goo Dolls
A Boy Named Goo


Eat Shit
11Regina Spektor
Soviet Kitsch


Just fucking marry me already
10Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over The Sea


blahblahblah NEXT
9Converge
Jane Doe


see above
8P.O.S.
Never Better


My absolute favorite hip-hop album. Vehemence and honesty in every verse.
7Explosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place


Few bands can show so much emotion without singing a single note.
6Continuance
Carry Ourselves


Melodic hardcore at its absolute best, even if the vocalist is terrible.
5Anberlin
Cities


Anberlin reached their peak with Cities, creating an album that is wall to wall perfect.
4The National
Boxer


Who would have thought that a guy with such a dour voice could convey so much?
3The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound


The Gaslight Anthem took americana and added a couple dashes of punk and a shitload of sincerity. This album has unlimited replay value.
2Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago


Justin Vernon crafted a masterpiece, and there is no way he could ever top it. Simply awe-inspiring album, front to back.
1Misery Signals
Controller


I love everything about this album, the musicianship, the vocals, everything. Schubach's lyrics are what takes it to the next level though, something about it gets me. Not a single second of this album lags.
