Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicAaron Copland Appalachian SpringIn time, this would earn a Pulitzer Prize and go far beyond the merrits of contemporary music. Any classical music fan should listen to this.Black Sabbath ParanoidThis should be considered one of the most revolutionary metal albums by Black Sabbath, the 1970s, and perhaps of all time. Why? Because, Paranoid really opened the doors to the metal music world. There are only a few albums that are as powerful.Bob Dylan Blood on the TracksDream Theater Images and WordsGenesis Selling England by the PoundGenesis The Lamb Lies Down on BroadwayGeorge Gershwin Rhapsody in BlueIron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh SonThis would be the last brilliant Iron Maiden album, and the rest would fall the bottom out. Seventh Son is so great because Iron Maiden does a really good job with the concept and putting it into each of the songs. While each of the songs in previous albums had stories in them, these stories for each song on this album seem to have more meaning. Another nearly flawless entry for a metal band that has been that way for almost a decade.Judas Priest Sad Wings of DestinyKing Crimson In the Court of the Crimson KingAt the dawning of our souls, we'll saw the light. That was many years ago. It held so much meaning we attempted to search deeper into it. King Crimson was of many explorers searching beyond the light into the darkest of all nights. They went beyond prophetic, beyond real, and beyond the mainstream music bloodlines. It was the temple that helped progressive rock move forward throughout the world. Don't overthink the main definition of prog rock. It lies in this masterpiece of masterpieces.
And a sidenote: what does Robert Christgau truly know about this?King Crimson RedLed Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IVLudwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125Miles Davis Kind of BlueMuse AbsolutionNot nearly as bombastic or as fun as Origin of Symmetry, but it sure still stands clearly victorious.Muse Origin of SymmetryThere's no limits to what Muse has done in this 21st Century Magnum Opus. It stands as one of the pillars of alternative indie rock and delivers every single that is demanded, tenacity, over the top heaviness, and a warmth of keyboards all over. It's only appropriate to say that this album should come to be incredibly influentual for the next generation. 5/5Opeth Blackwater ParkThis is the breakthrough peak of Opeth's band career. No doubt about it.Pink Floyd Wish You Were HerePink Floyd The Dark Side of the MoonThere's almost nothing that can quite eclipse this.Radiohead Kid AThe biggest musically commercial suicide of the 2000s. And the greatest album by Radiohead.Rush A Farewell to KingsSergei Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18After the utter failure of his first symphony in Russia, Sergei Rachmaninoff, a genius of the late Romantic/early Contemporary age, had sought psychiatric help. During the period in which he had been working with a psychiatrist, he had began to have the thought in his head that he could create great music. That thought was what his psychiatrist had constantly said to him in the time he was composing Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 18.
Piano Concerto Two is beyond words, and almost beyond analyzation. Each movement is incredibly unique and so well excercised between the Piano and the whole orchestra that it becomes a perfect blend. The combination of the use of Romantic and Contemporary music is also nearly perfect as well. The first movement, possibly the most well known, introduces the concerto with gusto, emotion, energy, and power. The second movement gives you a rest with one of the most calming pieces constructed by Rachmaninoff. The third movement revs up the bombastity, complexity, energy, and power by bring everything from the first two movements together. In a display of fury and power, the Piano Concerto ends with intense glory. Glory that only the likes of Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Bach, Copland, and Mozart could match.Soundgarden SuperunknownThe Beatles Abbey RoadToo much credit is always given to Sgt. Pepper. It was indeed a brilliant album, but it was also just another drug album (perhaps the same could be said about many albums). This was a very different story. When the Beatles stopped touring, and put more time into their studio material, something about their image changed. They began to discover even more purpose in the concept album and finding ways to cleverly place it in their music. And eventually, they went perfect in their true, reigning magnum opus finale act, Abbey Road.The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club BandThe Beatles essentially back in the 1960s were like any other pop artist, living the dream. But someday, they'd approach the point where they were very tired of creating the same music. So, just coincidently in the year of love, 1967, The Beatles made a groundbreaking record that would influence hundreds of artists all the way into the present, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This contains just about everything you could possibly ask for from them and more. Absolute creativity in this album has no bounds as this album would soar to the top, often being coined as one of the best albums of the 60s and the 20th century. 5/5Tool LateralusU2 The Joshua TreeThis is either an album you'll love or hate. Most Bono-haters are going to drop the bomb and say "screw it, this album is horrible." Most U2 fans are going to say "this is AWESOME!" For anybody in between, the mystery remains. However, after analyzing this album for a full 10 years of my life from when I first heard this in school to now, the message of U2's Joshua Tree says more than just clever wankery and looselined lyrics and songwriting. This album is the cries of the lost in their own deceit and loss (alluding to Mothers of the Disappeared.) This album is the breaking of ethnical borders (allusion toTrip Between Your Wires.) This album the telling of old stories to new ones (allusions to Where the Streets Have No Name and Red Hill Mining Town.) Finally, this album is the culmination of perfect rock and pop combined together on an integral album (alluding to With or Without You.) So, take a good look at it from the broad perspective. I think you'll see that it's revolutionary.Yes Close to the EdgeYes at it's best. It had been climbing the mountain of its past albums and came over the top with Close to the Edge. With an epic and two other great songs, this album deserves kudos.4.5 superbAfro Celt Sound System Volume 3: Further In TimeAntonin Dvorak Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, B. 178August Burns Red ConstellationsAvenged Sevenfold City of EvilA7X is giving us a reason to care about them. If anything they made in the future sounded like this or Waking the Fallen or the two combined, they'd be taking a step in the right direction.Billy Joel Greatest Hits Volume I & II (1973 - 1985)Black Sabbath Black SabbathThis should be considered the first true metal album. It was also the reason Paranoid came into existance. It puts together the styles of blues, metal, and rock in a neat display of unusual power for the time.Black Sabbath Sabbath Bloody SabbathThis is one of my personal favorites by Black Sabbath. It improves the styles that were almost lost from Volume 4 and brings a more mature metal sound to the group. I may only be concerned about Who Are You?, but it's just a minor concern. The second to last brilliant album from the Magnificant Six.Black Sabbath Master of RealityIs the truth that difficult to face as reality? In comparison to Paranoid, Master of Reality is nearly as impressive, creating something a little milder and still very heavy.Bob Dylan Highway 61 RevisitedBon Iver For Emma, Forever AgoI find myself shocked listening to this. Somehow, I like it. A lot.Bruce Springsteen Born to RunCamel MoonmadnessThe greatest and most stunningly beautiful prog rock album in 1976. Simple as that.Camel The Snow GooseCarrollhood VIOLENCE.Boys, you've done it again. You've managed to tune yourselves and still play some pretty good rock. Something's gotta give.Coheed and Cambria From Fear Through the Eyes of MadnessCynthesis ReEvolutionThe reboot of "evolving" prog metal that Cynthesis desperately needed.Damien Rice ODeep Purple Machine HeadOne of the definative metal albums of the decade. There are only a few albums such as Paranoid by Black Sabbath that can truly beat this.Deftones Koi No YokanI can't believe I didn't discover them any earlier. Koi No Yokan is on level with White Pony andn Diamond Eyes, I believe. Perhaps the best of the year.Devin Townsend Project GhostDream Theater Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a MemoryDream Theater's "magnum opus" is so close to being one on my scale. It's probably one of the few concept albums I'll listen to without getting bored. It's also one of DT's best.Emerson, Lake and Palmer Brain Salad SurgeryThe best you can ever ask of ELP. It has just about every single progressive rock element known, pretentiousness included.Genesis A Trick of the TailIf Genesis lost anything from this album, the only variable they lost was Peter Gabriel. Everything else about the album is still there and still sounds as rich as ever. At the same time, this album also sniffs an approaching storm of pop music, though...Genesis FoxtrotIn all the years Genesis has been around, sophistication wouldn't sound better in any previous album than it would sound in Foxtrot.Godspeed You! Black Emperor F#A# (Infinity)It's not the apocalypse. It's just really incredible music.Green Day WarningThis was the best Green Day was ever going to get, because they calmed down the punk style just enough, and gave each song some a little emotion rather than the usual f##k you feeling. This may perhaps be the reason they fell back down to a much lower status and can't escape their trademark, recycled punk style.Hans Zimmer InceptionForget about what the movie is about, this is just about the soundtrack. High complexity and intensity makes the soundtrack worth a listen. Take several times, not just one.Horslips The Book of Invasions: A Celtic SymphonyHRVRD From the Bird's CageI suppose I might be suffering a seizure, but I really think this is amazing. HRVRD has moved from Post Hardcore to Indie Alternative and they sound even better as a result. You might beg to differ, but this is simply just an opinion embodied with a fact.Igor Stravinsky L'Oiseau de feu ("The Firebird"), balletThis version of the Firebird is nearly a masterpiece. I prefer and love the 1919 orchestrated version the most, though.Iron Maiden The Number of the BeastIron Maiden PowerslaveJethro Tull Thick as a BrickThe greatest intentional conceptual parody, I'd say.John Petrucci Suspended AnimationJudas Priest PainkillerI suppose after what was Screaming for Vengeance, the best Judas Priest album made in a long time, was finished, Judas Priest to dip down during the next two albums. Then suddenly, Painkiller came by and gave us one of the heaviest metal albums to date. One of the best ones, by the way.Kayo Dot HubardoOne of the most daring concept albums of 2013. Also, one of the best.King Crimson Starless and Bible BlackWhen King Crimson decided to get louder, they got better.Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IIILed Zeppelin Houses of the HolyLed Zeppelin Physical GraffitiLudwig van Beethoven "Moonlight" Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor, Op. 27, No. 2Mannheim Steamroller Christmas in the AireThe best Christmas album made by Mannheim Steamroller.Megadeth Rust in PeaceI find it way too difficult to compare Megadeth to Metallica. I mean, Mustaine got what he was looking for, so why argue? 4.75/5Metallica Master of PuppetsThis album is extremely overrated. On the other hand, Metallica does not sell itself short at all. This could've easily been one of the best heavy albums in the history of music. That's if only Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Deep Purple hadn't done it first.Metallica ...And Justice for AllIf you take a leap in terms of two different albums, you might see a difference. With Metallica, the difference between ...And Justice for All and Master of Puppets is almost not a difference. However, that is one simple factor that separates the two of them from each other. Master of Puppets is extremely overrated and this is almost underrated. ...And Justice for All takes a much more enjoyable approach in terms of music since you're not thrashing the whole way through it. However, it doesn't lack any metal elements whatsoever. It would be perfect, if it weren't for the results of certain sections of the album.Metallica Ride the LightningMuse Black Holes and RevelationsMuse was not going to go down without a big bang. It was a Supermassive Black Hole. It consumed all negatism wherever it went. It would often make appearances during Starlight of the darkness, feeding on the Cities of Delusion through Exo-Politics. Even Assassins and Hoodoos failed to assail this fierce enemy. A Soldier's Poem inspired a group of aparent Invincible men known as the Knights of Cydonia to stop this beast. Before the Black Hole had accepted defeat, it Took a Bow and dissappeared without a trace. Wherever it may appear again, it may plague the world yet again. But for now, our heroes walked off of the Map of Problematique, Glorious.
If you look at Black Holes and Revelations in comparison to the rest of its discography, it could be considered the most powerful LP by Muse to date. It almost matches up to the standards of Origin of Symmetry and Absolution, but just falls short. Not bad for a fourth Muse Album.
Incredible.Nino Rota The GodfatherPerhaps one of the greatest soundtracks ever composed.Nobuo Uematsu Final Fantasy VIII: Original SoundtrackIt's a pretty good thing that the word final has not lost meaning yet.Opeth Still LifePaul Simon GracelandPink Floyd AnimalsPink Floyd has always been a heavily arbitrary band with their concepts and themes. So, when the year 1977 roled around, it was both a surprise and yet expected that the group would come out with Animals, an album that was filled with surprises, a concept about the political structures of society, and a very different design in comparison to that of Wish You Were Here. However, the acoustic tone, the extended themes of three different classes/animals, and a need for creating emotion within in it all still makes this album a power prog rock album to this very day.Pink Floyd MeddleMost people who heard Atom Heart Mother were probably not flattered. Meddle, the follow up album was more pleasant and a step up for Pink Floyd.Porcupine Tree DeadwingProcol Harum Shine on BrightlyQueensryche Operation: MindcrimeThis has the standards that almost match up to the ideals of Scenes From a Memory. This is because this album showcases a really good concept, transititions through each song so well, and gives the album a name to go by. Radiohead OK ComputerThis was when Radiohead would become extremely influential in the 1990s. Great Brittain was going to have a great musical year. I still think Fitter, Happier is just plain weird and annoying, though.Radiohead In RainbowsRadiohead recorded this under tons of tension and stress. No wonder it sounds like a lost diamond.Rainbow RisingThis is the best Rainbow Material you can hear. Hands down. 4.3/5Renaissance Turn of the CardsRodrigo y Gabriela Rodrigo y GabrielaThis flamenco-style guitar duo debut gives a fresh new look at talent and continues to show that even two guitarists can make a really good album.Rodrigo y Gabriela 11:11Rush 2112Two plus one plus one plus two equals six.

Do you like Yes, Camel, Genesis, Alan Parson, or King Crimson? Do you like the 1970s? Do you like Porcupine Tree? Do you like Steven Wilson? Have I been sold?
Yes...ALL OF THE ABOVE. The Raven That Refused to Sing is a killer prog album and perhaps the greatest of the Steven Wilson discography so far. 4.6/5Strawbs Hero and HeroineHitting the Dark Side of Prog Rock. 4.3/5 Streetlight Manifesto The Hands That ThieveClearly, this is FUN music. The Beatles The BeatlesAfter a revolutionary Sgt. Pepper album broke through the ice of the world, it was going to be difficult for the Beatles to top that. Instead, they matched it with massive 90 minute work, The Beatles, or the The White Album. With catchy songs, accoustic pieces, and bizarre masterpieces, this album can't quite match match the eccentricicy of the previous work, but is still head on.
Also, if I tried to talk to Iai (Nick Butler) about music, I think it would end in a massive argument. Despite some of our agreements, we're mostly split by certain songs. While he thinks most of the White Album songs are just plain average, I think that there's way more importance to most of them, except maybe Wild Honey Pie. During the making of this album, all the members were going through massive revolutions in their heads, making nonsense of themselves. Yeah, they got high, but at this rate, even drugs weren't spelling the eventual split up. The only reason they stayed together, is because two is better than one. John still had some love for Paul's work (no homo :O) and it only benefited the whole group. George Harrison was only starting to show more gusto, and unified the album a little more than it originally was. And even if John was helpless without Paul or vice versa, for either, it would still be honorable.
Take that, Nick Butler.The Fall of Troy DoppelgangerIt's one thing to listen to F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X., and it's another thing to hear the whole album. It's a wholly landmass of unexpected impressiveness.The Mars Volta Frances the MuteMuscle spasm has been redefined, by a long shot...............The Moody Blues Days of Future PassedTool AenimaTraffic John Barleycorn Must DieI'm not the type of guy to like soul, funk, R&B, or too much jazz for the matter, but this was different.

Blaak Heat Shujaa is just learning to break through them surprisingly well with a blend of dark, slightly metal, progressive overtones in their debut EP: The Edge Of An Era. 3.8/5Black Sabbath Vol. 4Don't be wack. BS is for Black Sabbath, not bull s**t. And to inform you, this album isn't bull s**t. Not even close. It just has a few dissapointing flaws, but this album has mostly good characteristics.Black Sabbath SabotageBrand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside MeBrian Eno LuxCactus CactusBlues rock never sounded pricklier.........................................Camille Saint-Saens Le carnaval des animauxCoheed and Cambria No World for TomorrowColdplay A Rush of Blood to the HeadDarkstar (UK) News From NowhereDragonForce Inhuman RampageDragonforce has no good honest reason to be playing the way they do in speed metal. When you pull the whole Japanese equation, you get something like this. The extremity faced in this album is so harsh it fits the power of the legend metal album. However, the consistantly uninteresting and the same old, same old story ruins the chances of it becoming an instant dose of classic.Dream Theater A Change of SeasonsDream Theater Live at BudokanDream Theater ScoreDream Theater AwakeDream Theater takes a step back, but nevertheless, this album is still very good. 4.2/5Dream Theater Train of ThoughtDream Theater Six Degrees of Inner TurbulenceDream Theater Black Clouds & Silver LiningsDream Theater OctavariumEloy OceanFight War Of WordsThis album didn't sacrifice too much power during the transition from Painkiller.

Whether that was a bad mistake or not is no longer my judgement. I will simply state that if you look in terms of what they were making in the 2000s, material was always going to be on the edge, most especially How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, which spiritual properties made it easy musical propaganda. And then, suddenly you get an album, No Line On the Horizon, which builds on more of a 21st century regular rock ordeal, and you get U2's enjoyable sound, built on bright lights.

A Jon Anderson was growing extremely obssessed with so many different international cultures that it soon began to swamp the power that Yes had. However, it also led to one of the most unique albums of the century, with 4 songs that were heavily indulgent and almost all surpassed 18 minutes. While it was one of Yes's first flaws in their Classic age, it was not major.3.5 greatA Day to Remember HomesickA Day to Remember For Those Who Have HeartABBA WaterlooAbnormality 2007 DemoAcid Mothers Temple Starless and Bible Black SabbathAdele 21AFI A Fire InsideAFI All Hallow'sAfro Celt Sound System Volume 1 - Sound MagicAntonin Dvorak Slavonic Dances No. 2, Op. 72, B. 145Antonin Dvorak Slavonic Dances No. 1, Op. 46, B. 78August Burns Red LevelerAvenged Sevenfold NightmareAvenged Sevenfold Waking the FallenAvenged Sevenfold Avenged SevenfoldBilly Joel River Of DreamsBosnian Rainbows Bosnian RainbowsBreaking Benjamin PhobiaBreaking Benjamin Dear AgonyBruce Springsteen Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.Bullet for My Valentine The PoisonCamille Saint-Saens Danse macabre, Op.40Carrollhood AfraidChevelle Wonder What's NextCoheed and Cambria The Afterman: AscensionThis still beats torturing cats any day.

Some of it sounds good, others of it sounds incredibly messed up. The only reason it doesn't completely remain horrifying is that Piano Concerto saves the album from being worthless.Fleshgod Apocalypse LabyrinthI got lost after track one.

Not today, not ever. On the bright side, this album didn't completely die.Muse MuseNas IllmaticRap/hip-hop albums usually just pass me because I don't like them. This was slightly different. At this time it was just gaining ground. Personally, I'm not really that crazy about it.Owl City Maybe I'm DreamingPhil Collins TestifyPink Floyd EchoesPokemon 2BA MastaI could never get more annoyed by this album. My younger brother played this like he had no life. I guess it's true. Once you've played Pokemon, you life is never the same. On the bright side, this can't get any worse than some of the pop albums that you hear. And it's Pokemon, so who wouldn't want to listen to this?Queensryche Operation: Mindcrime IIRadiohead Pablo HoneyRage Against the Machine Rage Against the MachineRage Against the Machine The Battle of Los AngelesRage Against the Machine Evil EmpireRed Hot Chili Peppers Stadium ArcadiumOh, this is supposed to be massive.
