Captain, We're Sinking The Future Is Cancelled
Death Symbolic
Dio Holy Diver
R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio, the GOD of metal. Enough said.
Genesis Selling England by the Pound
Heathen Victims of Deception
Iron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
A dark, original concept album and one of Iron Maiden's best works. The first five songs are pure genius.
Jethro Tull Thick as a Brick
Jethro Tull Aqualung

The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Hotelier Home, Like NoPlace Is There
On their newest effort, The Hotelier year take everything that made their debut so great and expand on it to create one of the most impacting punk releases in recent memory. Potentially my AOTY

4.5 superb
Agalloch The Mantle
An atmospheric and hauntingly beautiful work of art.
Anacrusis Manic Impressions
Anthrax Spreading the Disease
Artillery By Inheritance
Balance and Composure Separation
Black Sabbath Paranoid
Blink-182 Blink-182
Blink-182 Dude Ranch
Whether you love them or hate them, "Dude Ranch" is undoubtedly Blink 182's classic album. Featuring some of the best songs they've ever done such as 'Dammit', this is an album I will always return to.
Brutality Screams of Anguish
Burzum Hvis lyset tar oss

Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast
Iron Maiden Iron Maiden
Jethro Tull Heavy Horses
Judas Priest Sad Wings of Destiny
Megadeth Rust in Peace
Metallica Master of Puppets
Metallica Ride the Lightning
Motion City Soundtrack My Dinosaur Life
My personal favorite album by Motion City Soundtrack. It contains some of the biggest hooks in the band's career, but there's even a song that mentions Zelda: The Ocarina of Time!!
New Found Glory New Found Glory
Overkill The Years of Decay
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd Animals
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
Razor Evil Invaders
Hold on tight. Razor's best album is a one hell of a rollercoaster ride packed with relentless riffs and drumming and some of the most violent and original screams I've heard in the genre. A thrash essential.

4.0 excellent
Agalloch Ashes Against The Grain
Agalloch From Which Of This Oak
Alkaline Trio Maybe I'll Catch Fire
All That Remains The Fall of Ideals
Let's face it. All That Remains newer albums aren't that great, but their 3rd effort "The Fall of Ideals" is one of the most impressive metalcore albums I've heard to this day. Labonte's voice is amazing and the production is good without sounding overproduced like their newer work. Definitely one work checking out.
Anacrusis Screams and Whispers
Bayonet Bayonet
Bayside The Walking Wounded
Big Boi Sir Lucious Left Foot
Black Sabbath Mob Rules

Blink-182 Take Off Your Pants and Jacket

Burzum Filosofem
Captain, We're Sinking It's A Trap
For those who can't get enough of "The Future Is Cancelled", this EP makes for a pretty damn good companion to that record - despite the fact that it's three years old. Expect more lyrics fueled by alcohol and the insecurities of our fellow man.

Only time will tell how this stacks up to their other releases, but "Damage" is certainly JEW doing what JEW does best in the form of 10 hard-hitting alt-rock tracks.
