5.0 classic
Dream Theater Images and Words
Dream Theater A Dramatic Turn of Events
Equals Images and Words in melody, musicianship, creativity and emotional depth.
John Williams A.I.: Artificial Intelligence
Linkin Park A Thousand Suns
An album that confronts modern-day issues of technology fearlessly and creatively. Hybrid Theory may be one of the best nu-metal albums, but this album may go down as LP's best and most misunderstood record.
Metallica ...And Justice for All
Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral
Porcupine Tree The Incident
A much more personal and haunting record than Fear of a Blank Planet ever was. Steven Wilson said he wanted FoaBP to be a "50-minute piece of continuous music", but that record had plenty of gaps between tracks. This, however, fulfills that promise more than adequately. Sound quality is better, too.
Public Enemy Fear of a Black Planet
Radiohead OK Computer
Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine
Red Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex Magik
The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Thomas Newman Wall-E

4.5 superb
Converge Jane Doe
Daft Punk Random Access Memories
Deftones Diamond Eyes
Deftones Koi No Yokan
Dream Theater Awake
Dream Theater Black Clouds & Silver Linings
One of the best of latter-day DT. Their "comeback" album, much like Metallica's Death Magnetic.
From First to Last Throne to the Wolves
Touches on social and cultural topics never thought possible from a band like this. A post-hardcore album that criticizes other post-hardcore albums.
Green Day 21st Century Breakdown
An extremely misunderstood record. The amount of work the band put into this one is astonishing, and the lyrics are better written than American Idiot. Sure, it's varied in content, but that's what makes it work so well. Possibly Green Day's most relevant album.

The best mix of metalcore and dubstep yet produced, with some of the best political lyrics this side of RATM. Also has a major prog edge to the songwriting structure.

Quite possibly the worst album I have ever heard. Yes, there are a couple of good-tracks production-wise (the ones by Hit-Boy are, as usual, the standouts), but 99% of this record is so heinously bad that it almost makes me want to quit being a musician. Almost.
