5.0 classic
Alice in Chains Dirt
Alice in Chains Jar of Flies
At the Gates Slaughter of the Soul
Converge Jane Doe
Dio Holy Diver
It seems awfully cliche to rate this as "classic" now that Dio has passed on... But it IS a classic. It's cheesy 80's power metal with silly lyrics - but it's just so good.
Megadeth Rust in Peace
Metallica Master of Puppets
Metallica ...And Justice for All
Metallica St. Anger
I love this album. It's just so ridiculously bad, it makes me laugh every time I hear it. Well what can you do but laugh when you hear James Hetfield screaming "kill, kill, kill kill, KIIIIIIIIIL!"...
Now, seriously - it might seem that I am trolling. Of all albums on this site, why should ANYONE give a perfect score for St. Anger? Because it is PERFECT - a perfect example on how NOT to make metal album.
Miles Davis Kind of Blue
Neurosis The Eye of Every Storm
You know what? After finishing this album, I was left with only one unsettling thought - that I couldn't really understand the music here. Which isn't a bad thing. It's similar to the feeling, when you're explained for the first time, that the Earth is just a pale blue dot in the vast universe, which houses uncountable numbers of other planets, stars, galaxies... And then you're left with jaw dropping realization, that everything you knew before pales in comparison to this new knowledge. And after listening to Neurosis, I understand just how little I indeed know about music.

I'm not a big black metal fan, but this album is amazing. It has all the brutality I would expect from a black metal band, but with more melody and even guitar solos to top it off. In one word: amazing.

This album really proved to me that you don't need clean vocals in every chorus to make quality melodic metalcore. Possibly the best album of this genre that I've ever had the pleasure to listen to.
In Flames The Mirror's Truth
Wow. This is probably the first time in my life when I feel that a single is worth getting much more than the actual album. Not only it has "The Mirror's Truth", which is one of the best songs on A Sense of Purpose, but the three other tracks easily surpass at least two thirds of the tracks on the actual album.

Comparing this to the previous Epica effort is like comparing diamonds and stones. Everything seems to have improved, even the growling (which is still pretty meh). The best part (for me at least) is that I Finally can remember something after listening through an Epica album. Which is quite something

Not exactly what I was expecting, but way better that Sworn to a Great Divide. With Peter back and Sylvain joining the band, guitars feel very re-vitalized. The only real downside is (surprisingly to me) the vocals.

After seeing Uroboros and Toxic Garbage Island played live I liked them better than on the actual album. There are a lot of cool riffs here, but only few can keep my attention through the whole song.

I was shown the video for Never Enough. i thought the song was ok, so i decided to check out this album. But... My god, this is so... so... AVERAGE. After listening through the entire album, the only song that I remembered was the beforementioned Never Enough. Vocals are decent for the most part (whoever does the "growling" should STOP), but they aren't backed up by music that is at least catchy. Bland album, 'nuff said
