My Top 10 Albums Of All Time

These are the 10 albums that literally changed my life and my perspective on what music is. Hopefully you may agree as well. If not, then that's coolbeans too.
10Cynic
Traced In Air


First album in and I'm already going to get slack for picking this over "Focus". The vocals are what sells me on this album. The "robotic" nature that can be heard is something that I find so cool to hear. And with the album only just being over 30 mins long, that's a testament to how good this band are at making music if I'm still listening to the same 30 mins of material in 2013. As for "Focus", it's still a damn good album, but the tracks here just sound more refined and I find this record to be consistent than their previous one. Takes you into another dimension, literally. Progressive deathness at its best.
9Porcupine Tree
Fear of a Blank Planet


I'm not a big fan of PT's earlier stuff, nor Steven Wilson's solo stuff. However, I am one of those many people that joined the bandwagon after In Absentia came out. This record has my favourite opener ever. Wilson's lyrics resonated with me back then to a point where I thought he was literally singing about my life. The whole idea of adolescent life consisting of; playing video games, never going out, social anxiety, being trapped under one's skin, not knowing what the future holds, are all statements that relate to me as an individual so much and the drumming here is some of the best in musical history. Anesthetize owns your fucking soul.

Sound Awake


The newest album I have on this list. This was a grower, I can remember thinking this album was boring as fuck compared to Themeta. But then letting the album grow on me I slowly became in love with it. The production on this album is some of the best work I've heard, and the album itself is a testament to where humanity is at this moment in time. The grooves here are incredible and the album's tracks are laid out in a way that makes the whole thing flow perfectly.
7Thrice
Vheissu


I rarely listen to much rock music nowadays but when I do, I listen to Thrice. Damn, this album has amazing pacing to it. The songs are chanty, catchy as hell and filled up with pure emotion. Possibly my favourite rock album. Red Sky is also one of my favourite songs of all time. So there ya go.
6Deftones
Saturday Night Wrist


Ahhh, the Deftones album that everybody but me hates with a passion. Okay, after the average self-titled album, my interest in Deftones slowly went away. But when I heard from a friend that SNW had dropped a while back I was amazed at how I had given up on this band. This record has all of my favourite Deftones songs on it, bar a few; Hole in the Earth, Beware, Xerces, Combat, Kimdracula. Mind blowing album.

Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True


Nostalgia hits hard here. Hearing "The Wife, the Kids and the White Picket Fence" takes me back to being in school again. This album is just an absolute mindfuck. It has one the best closers I've ever heard as well. One of those few records where every track is outstanding.
4Frost*
Milliontown


Falls just behind Dream Theater in its ranking. Only because I've heard Metropolis much more than this. Though the song "Milliontown" is arguably one of the greatest progressive tracks ever made.
3 Dream Theater
Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes from a Memory


Although 6DoIT is almost as good. Having two DT albums on this list seems like cheating. The greatest progressive album ever made. The concept, the instrumentation. Executed flawlessly
2Tool
Lateralus


The first progressive rock album I ever heard. So much nostalgia is attached to this and this album and this band has inspired me to become a better musician since I began.
1Boards of Canada
Geogaddi


Electronic music perfected. Listened to this for the first time at midnight and it changed my whole view on what music is. Gives me the same chills every time I listen to it since I first heard it. Literally no flaw can be found in this album in my opinion. 1969 in the sunshine.
