5.0 classic
2Pac Me Against the World
If this were his only ever album, Tupac would still be considered one of the greatest rap artists of all time.
AC/DC Back in Black
Recorded and released only months after the tragic passing of vocalist Bon Scott, AC/DC unleashed the second of their two magna opera with new vocalist Brian Johnson. What resulted was something nobody thought possible- a classic album even after the death of a vital member. Sure, Brian might not be as truly awesome as Scott but his signature screech fits the bluesy rock n roll boogie to a T. Absolutely essential classic hard rock.
AC/DC Highway to Hell
The final album for Bon Scott, who tragically passed away a few months after the album's release. Tied with Back In Black for their best record, it is surely impossible to resist the rock n roll boogie of this album. Everyone likes some AC/DC, even if they don't want to admit it. Many would call this their greatest album of all time. I wouldn't be too slow in agreeing with that.
Aerosmith Toys in the Attic
The make it or break it album for Boston rockers Aerosmith, and as I'm sure we all know, they made it. And the album itself is no less classic because of its intense popularity containing a wide variety of meaty rocking cuts made to just rock the fuck out to, simple as.
Aerosmith Rocks
The crowning achievement by the Bad Boys of Boston, marginally surpassing the amazing Toys in the Attic and raising the bar for all cock rock (nice try, Bon Jovi)
Alice Cooper Billion Dollar Babies
Alice Cooper Welcome to my Nightmare
Vincent Furnier's first solo outing, albeit still under the name of his old band Alice Cooper, and also his best. Sure, albums such as Trash and more recently Along Came A Spider are rock solid and well worth listening to, nothing he has done after this has come close to it in eeriness or just plain general kickassness. A cracking storyline and nothing but awesome tracks, Welcome To My Nightmare is a purely classic record through and through.
Alice in Chains Dirt
Alice In Chains' second album expands on Facelift and is indeed much more experimental following their acoustic dalliance Sap. Heavier and sometimes even mellower than their debut, Dirt showcases an even bleaker side to AIC, evidently inspired by their ongoing drug addictions. Featuring the all-time classic track Would?, Dirt is also packed with other memorable tracks like Rooster, Junkhead, Dam That River, Them Bones and much more. Probably their finest effort.
Alice in Chains MTV Unplugged
Alice In Chains captured live and acoustic. The band has always shined in their live shows and their acoustic EPs Sap and Jar of Flies are just as enjoyable as their hard hitting full lengths, and this awe-inspiring record takes their live greatness and their acoustic prowess and mixes it all together to make a fine record indeed. One of the best Unplugged albums, Layne Staley's deteriorating condition (most evident on the DVD) makes this, one of their final performances together before Staley's drug-induced demise, a somewhat tragic and sombre listen.
Annihilator Never, Neverland
Anthrax Among the Living
Anthrax's classic third album, in brief, rules face. Being the most underappreciated of the 'Big Four', Anthrax always had a certain quirkiness that was nowhere to be found in the archives of Metallica, Megadeth or Slayer. Among The Living is a true classic of thrash metal that will live forever in the hearts of true metalheads.
Arcade Fire Funeral
Bjork Homogenic
Black Flag Damaged
Black Sabbath Paranoid
The debut may have laid the foundations, but the Sabs' sophomore effort a few short months later is what really created what we know today as heavy metal. Sure, many have taken metal in more extreme directions, but nobody would ever take simple riffs and make them so powerful and montrous like Tony Iommi could. Basically every band that plays metal is ripping off Black Sabbath in some way. Geezer Butler is undoubtedly one of the most talented bassists to ever live. Bill Wards rhythm-keeping and fills are among the finest to grace the world of rock. Ozzy Osbourne may not be the greatest singer of all time but his vocals suited Paranoid to a T. Every song here has been covered multiple times and every knows at least the title track or 'Iron Man'. The album's legacy alone makes it a classic, but the fact that the music herein is so kickass and has stood the test of time even after over 40 years, its classic status is more than justified on that front as well.

One of the greatest albums ever made, and I'm not saying that lightly. MoP is as close to perfect an album as I have ever heard, with just the right blend of melody, heaviness and raw production. My only real complaint? Bass needs to be louder, and I hope that they go back and rectify this someday. For now, the album is still classic even after almost a quarter of a century. It raised the bar for both Metallica themselves and all metal bands thereafter. To some it may seem dated but in 1986 this was one of the heaviest and unique-sounding albums, from the chilling acoustic intro of Battery, the melodic instrumental interlude of the awesome title track, the sheer heaviness of The Thing That Should Not Be and the amazing bass work on Orion. Truth be told, if you don't like this album, you're not a real metal fan, you only think you are.

A pure tsunami of a wet dream for any AC/DC nut, the special edition features a fully working amp, a massive book and a 180 gram vinyl as well as all the CDs of rarities and what not. Only thing keeping this from being a classic is the price!
Accept Balls to the Wall
Accept somewhat drop their speedy aggression for a more anthemic sound but are no less fantastic for it. An all-time classic milestone for European metal as well as heavy metal in general, Balls to the Wall is one of those records that no true rocker should be without

Alice in Chains Black Gives Way to Blue
Against all odds Alice In Chains' fourth album rivals the mighty Dirt as their finest studio effort. Sure, the loud production leaves a little to be desired but the music and lyrics are top notch, containing some of their best work and perhaps is the only AiC album on which I like every song. Layne is dead and gone, Jerry and William share vocal duties and almost perfectly recreate the classic harmonising that was so characteristic of their previous work. One of the best albums of 2009, an absolutely essential release.

Megadeth Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
1986 is well-regarded as being an amazing year for metal. In that year alone, the world was given new bona fide classics from metal giants such as Slayer (Reign In Blood), Iron Maiden (Somewhere In Time), Kreator (Pleasure To Kill), Candlemass (Epicus Doomicus Metallicus) and Metallica (Master of Puppets). MegaDave also stepped up to the plate with a thrash opus in the form of Peace Sells. Long considered a classic of thrash metal, with fans including Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, Dave and co. churn out amazing riffs on their sophomore release in a much more cohesive and professional fashion than on their debut a year earlier. There isn't a single song on here that is below average in quality, with each member demonstrating immense talent and precision with their instruments. However, Mustaine was never regarded as the greatest singer in the world, and while more tolerable than on the KIMB, the vox may still take some getting used to. A definite must for all fans of metal. Also, try and get your hands on the non-2004 remaster, as the new reissue is overly-compressed and clips to hell.
Metallica Kill 'Em All
Metallica Ride the Lightning
A thrash opus by all accounts, superstars-to-be Metallica were on a roll. Following on from their impressive debut, thrashers Metallica added a lot more melodic and progrssive elements that would be perfected on their monster third album. That is not to say that this album pales in comparison, with some awesome tracks such as opener Fight Fire With Fire, the brilliant ballad Fade To Black and the crushing Creeping Death. However, the album has two very obvious flaws- Trapped Under Ice and Escape. These two filler tracks bring the album well below the Master of Puppets standards. Still, a very powerful and important album, it comes recommended for any and all metal fans.

There's no doubt about it- 40 years on and the man still knows how to rock the pants off anyone and anything on this planet. A fully revitalised Vincent Furnier ditches the trendiness of 80's pop metal and mixes in some garage and modern hard rock to give an underrated but no less classic album from the 90s. Is it as good as Welcome To My Nightmare? No, but then again, not much else is either. An infectiously consistent record, the most so in a while, Last Temptation is an essential Alice Cooper record that you will spin again and again.

Foo Fighters Wasting Light
Seventeen years together and six albums, one live effort and a best of compilation, each of which selling in the millions, is quite a string of feats for a group of rock and roll kids. Not much has changed across the years in the Foo's discography, and Wasting Light, save for the lack of acoustic tracks that permeated most of their later efforts, hardly deviates from their tried and tested Foo Formula. And that is precisely the reason why this album rules. Repetitive radio rock this is not, but rather, a raw, raunchy rifftastic rocking monster of a record. Bands like Nickelback should take note- THIS is how you rock the mainstream. In what is sure to be a much-lauded return to roots, Wasting Light is also going to be looked back upon fondly as one of the standout releases of 2011, particularly in the world of rock. Is it groundbreaking or very innovative? No. Would you ever listen to a Foo Fighters record seeking that? Hell no. Just fucking turn it up loud, because the Foos are back Fighting harder than ever.

Linkin Park Hybrid Theory
This was pretty much he album that took me from listening to shitty post-grunge and got me into much better stuff. My mid-to-late- teens can be summed up by this entire album, full of zit-faced socially-awkward angst. Sure, I've moved on to bigger and better things, but this album was there for me at the best possible time. Trends come and go but for a Nu Metal album Hybrid Theory stands the test of time quite well regardless of the many tropes of the genre contained herein. Kids today are still getting into this album so it goes to show. Another ten years from now and this could well be considered a classic of the noughties.

Megadeth Endgame
So here's the deal- after their 90's dabbling in radio rock, Megadeth felt an itch to start thrashing again like during the good ol days. Except they scratched slowly, easing back into a genre that's long since been out of the mainstream eye. The albums that succeeded the abysmal Risk of 1999 have brought Megadeth slowly back into their position as Thrash Lords. 2007's United Abominations had the most promise and sounded more like Megadeth than anything else since Countdown to Extinction. Now is the time for Dave and co. to reach and reclaim their place amongst the metal Gods.
Juggernauts and once bitter rivals to Megadeth, Metallica, made their thrashing comeback last year, and with the other two members of the former 'Big Four', Slayer and Anthrax, to release new albums later this year or early next year, we could be seeing a resurgence of the golden days of 80's Thrash.
Is it the Rust In Peace Part II that deluded 'fans' claim is coming? No. The only things better about this album than their 80's efforts is production and Dave's vocals, which have been steadily improving as of late (better late than never, what?). With a little filler the album is far from perfect but is still a modern metal masterpiece and a top contender for 2009's Metal Album of the Year. 4/5

Megadeth Th1rt3en
Th1rt3en, while not as evolutionary as 'Endgame', continues to show that older bands can remain relevant in the modern metal scene. Axework is undeniably great and more memorable songs are added to the Megadeth repertoire and are sure to be staples of live sets to come. More of a side-step, but a sure-footed one.
Megadeth The System Has Failed
Megadeth Cryptic Writings
Megadeth Killing Is My Business...
The first step in Dave Mustaine's quest to become bigger and better than his old band Metallica. 'Killing Is My Business...' heralded the birth of another metal juggernaut. The entire album is a flurry of technical riffage and drug references. Some would go so far as to say this is better than Metallica's debut, 'Kill Em All'. Hrm, not by my reckoning, though I will admit that this is an essential listen for all metal fans. No real fillers except for the laughably terrible cover of These Boots. However, there are some great flaws. The production is just wickedly bad. Sure, production comes second where pure balls-to-the-wall thrash is concerned, just look at the early Venom releases, but the intense amount of reverb alone makes this record come off as quite amateurish. Now the remaster clears this up a great deal in fairness. Also there's Mustaine's vocals. Usually it's love em or hate em when it come to Dave's singing but on this record it's just really bad. But again in fairness who listens to metal for the singing when the vast majority of vocalists are tone deaf anyway. In all, KIMB is a great album but not exactly a thrash classic. But for those who love thrash, Megadeth or just plain balls-to-the-wall rock and roll, this is a worthwhile listen indeed.
Megadeth So Far, So Good... So What!
Somewhat unfortunately, for this album at least, MegaDave and Co. were letting their indulgences affect the quality of their music. While SFSGSW is by no means a bad album, and in fact still a great slab of metal, the hunger and rage of PSBWB just doesn't come across as well here. While it opens with an amazing instrumental, and indeed includes one of MegaDave's greatest songs ever (In My Darkest Hour), it feels a bit more dull than what came before, and certainly what was to come after...

30STM's debut sees them take the listener on a bizarre, pretentious and unfocused journey through the pseudo-philosophical ramblings of their actor-cum-have-a-go- frontman. Spacey alternative metal is the name of the game here, with several references to popular sci-fi and Sun Tzu's 'The Art of War' scattered throughout. The heavy alternative vibe is what carries these shaky ideas more than the band's average skills as musicians and Jared Leto's forced vocal range, but it remains an interesting listen but hardly one that warrants a lot of time when so many bands do it better. That is to say that the band certainly like to wear their influences on their sleeves more so than taking the tried and tested ideas of alternative and heavy rock and making them their own. Somebody certainly should have told Jared Leto that chucking Metallica, Tool and Radiohead in a melting pot together doesn't produce as refined a work as he would like to believe.

Converge Axe to Fall
Hardcore punkers Converge release yet another album of brutal incomprehensible noise that either appeals to you or does not. Why anyone thinks this band is actually metal is beyond me, metalcore maybe but not metal. But here we go again with Jacob's emotionally charged screams that do not seem to be saying anything but reading the lyrics shows that each of his AAARGHS and WUUURRRGHS vaguely resembles the word on paper. Not to mention the insane punk riffing and brutal rhythms. This isn't my bag but for what its worth Axe To Fall is a good enough record that will appeal to Converge fans but those who want more coherent rocking need to look elsewhere.

If Th1rt3en was a side-step, then Super Collider is a definite miss-step. The fury and velocity of the previous albums are almost gone and the music is a lot more by-the-numbers than previous works. The opening track is still very good and the Thin Lizzy cover is suh-weet. Do yourself a favour- don't go into this album with the viciousness of 'Rust In Peace' or 'Endgame' in mind and you'll come out fine. Which is as much a problem as it is a solution.

Easily the worst Muse album to date. I can't see this growing on me any more than it has, and I'd even go so far as to say that a 3 is being VERY generous. Yes it has the Exogenesis suite and though pretentious it gets the job done and is certainly worth great praise, but on pretty much everything else they have gone from interesting to bland as hell.

Thirty Seconds to Mars This Is War
30STM shake off their godawful emo tendencies and take a step forward at last, not that that would have been too difficult a task but rather than establishing themselves as a credible musical act worthy of being taken seriously, they jump on another bandwagon, this time that of sterile, wannabe- U2, radio-ready arena rock. Somewhat paradoxically, however, it works very well for them. The music is more layered, ideas more interesting, songs hook-laden and initially epic in scope to the casual music listener. Upon closer examination, however, glaring flaws are revealed. Leto is trying so hard to channel Bono that his vocals sound even more forced and unnatural. Too many songs rely on the assembled choir of (allegedly, over 2000) fans and if one mentally removes them, average intrumentation is all that lies beneath. The songwriting itself is all too derivative, much like the debut, only this time the lads want to be U2, newer Kings of Leon and Rush all at once, again betraying a supreme lack of focus on the band's part. Rather than establishing a separate identity for themselves, they hover dangerously above the homogenous hordes of radio rock artists who are best suited for background music at IKEA only rather than for intensive individual listening. Though not a bad album by any means, once the hype dies down, This Is War is left in the dust as yet another trendy, of-the-moment record which will not stand the test of time, just like their other two albums, which is a shame given their potential.

Thirty Seconds to Mars A Beautiful Lie
Rather than taking a step forward from their shaky but moderately interesting debut, the Leto brothers and guests take a massive step back abd hop onto the zeitgeist bandwagon, committing a cardinal sin in the process- selling out to scene/ pseudo emo rock. Though opening in a somewhat promising fashion, A Beautiful Lie descends into a vomit-inducing frenzy that strips the band of any artistic crediblility they may have once held. There isn't really much more that can be said about this one. Sure, it made them mega-popular and lots and lots of money, but shit with icing and sprinkles on it is still shit.
