5.0 classic
Agalloch The Mantle
Agalloch mature their songwriting into a focused and musically sprawling sophomore effort. Folk, black metal, doom, post-rock, and progressive metal combine to form one of the most unique and incredible metal albums of the past twenty years. Emotionally devastating, astoundingly diverse, and will not release the listener's attention until after that final strike of the skull deer at the end of "A Desolation Song." A must-own rfor all metal fans.
Agalloch Ashes Against the Grain
Agalloch streamline some of their influences and tweak their sound for a heavier and doomier effort overall. The second half of Falling Snow is one of my favorite sections of any metal song, and album opener Limbs is another highlight. After Not Unlike The Waves, Ashes... unfortunately loses some of its steam. Though it features some great atmospheric instrumentals, and an amazing crescendo at the end of Bloodbirds.
Agalloch Pale Folklore
A raw, uncompromising debut that showcases what Agalloch are capable of. Black metal, folk, progressive metal, post-rock, and doom combine to produce an incredibly diverse and original album that only Agalloch could achieve. The opener "She Painted Fire Across The Skyline" is a formidable epic that requires patience to fully digest in its brilliance. "The Misshapen Steed" is a quiet, mystical atmospheric track that bridges the nearly 20-minute opener with the closing four songs, which includes one of their best "As Embers Dress The Sky."
Black Sabbath Paranoid
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
Blur 13
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Brand New's best release is also their most emotionally exhausting, full of dark melodies and lyrics, and a newfound sense of songwriting maturity and emotional resonance. "Jesus," "You Won't Know," and "Limousine" have some of their best vocals, as well as devastating lyrics. "Archers Bows Have Broken" is an enjoyable throwback to an earlier sound, while "Millstone" is a more relaxed and jammable traditional rock song. Even the instrumentals are great. This album has no wasted moments and possesses a beautiful, devastating quality, resulting in one of the best and most important rock albums of the decade.
Brand New Daisy
It's always entertaining to hear original Brand New fans' reactions to Daisy. Most of it is hatred, but a fair few have warmed up to the quartet's latest release, this time exhibiting a surprising amount of dissonance and heaviness. Daisy is Brand New fully matured and unrelentingly apocalyptic. With fast, pounding drums, heavy guitar riffing, and plenty of Jesse Lacey screaming about being dragged to hell and burning forests, Daisy is a definite ass-kicker. However, it does have its reflective moments. Closer "Noro" serves as one of the band's finest songs, reveling in it's misanthropic reflections while the drums repeat their industrial stomping and gentle, hypnotizing guitar harmonies strum behind it all. Almost matching The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me in its brilliance, Daisy is an altogether different beast, one of rage, vulnerability, and catharsis. A beautiful and devastating end to another era of Brand New.
Death Symbolic
Dream Theater Images and Words
One of the greatest achievements in progressive metal, Images & Words succeeds due to no shortage of energy and technical wizardry by the instrumentalists. Metropolis: Part 2 may be Dream Theater's conceptual and thematic peak, but this is the group's songwriting and lyrics at their best. Solos, LaBrie's vocal performance, and inspiration are found throughout, culminating in possibly being their only album with no weak moments. A must-own for all fans of progressive rock and metal music.
Enslaved Axioma Ethica Odini
Foals Total Life Forever
The world's most obnoxious album title is slapped onto one of the very best of the genre. No album I've ever heard quite compares to Total Life Forever in terms of providing such a rich, stunning, aquatic atmosphere. Everything from the guitar effects, keyboards, underwater vocals, and percussion comes together for some of the most adventurous and naturalistic atmospheres and musical textures ever put to record. "Black Gold" and "Spanish Sahara" is the centerpiece, a gorgeous display of brooding instrumentals and tormented lyrics describing some sort of tragedy. The way the emotion behind Yannis Philippakis's vocals intertwine with the musical backdrop is awe-inspiring. A few poppier songs are thrown in; "Miami" and "This Orient" have watery guitar leads and a quick, fluid way about them that feels just right among the more heady, dense material. "2 Trees" is a whirlwind of electronics and guitars that showcase a gorgeous harmony that shimmers to a delicate close. Album closer "What Remains" is even better. The vocals and drums stand out considerably, as a beautiful guitar melody weaves a web of delicate aquatic beauty in the background. Overall, Total Life Forever is a cornerstone of modern rock, perfectly displaying just the right amount of accessibility to accompany an incredible, ambitious, and original sound. This album has it all, and shines bright in it's endlessly creative, understated, melancholic beauty and truth.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor F#A# (Infinity)
Isis Panopticon
Panopticon largely succeeds due to an increased influence of post-metal and ambience. The opening trio of rsongs in particular are among their very best.
Isis Oceanic
Diversity, riffs, and amazing build-ups and musical breaks make this a truly awe-inspiring post-metal album.
Isis In the Absence of Truth
Almost all of the songs are amazing in their own way and there's great instrumentation all around. I personally love the emphasis on experimental and post-rock this possesses. A fantastic progression from their previous two masterpieces.
Mastodon Crack the Skye
Megadeth Rust in Peace
An undisputed thrash classic, featuring shredding solos and some of the most technical and creative songwriting and guitar riffing of the genre. A must own classic for metal fans and the crowning achievement of thrash metal.
Modest Mouse The Moon & Antarctica
One of the best experimental rock albums to come out of the decade, The Moon & Antarctica is a brilliant and masterful record from the understated indie group. From the impressively clever lyrics contemplating the meaning of life and the significance of space and time, to the diverse and haunting instrumentation. Beauty and sorrow collide in one of the first classics of the millennium.
My Bloody Valentine Loveless
Neurosis The Eye of Every Storm
Opeth Still Life
Opeth Blackwater Park
Depressive, bleak, and brilliant, Blackwater Park is truly Opeth's magnum opus. The Leper Affinity features one of their best and most incredible outros to date, recalling the ending of April Ethereal from My Arms, Your Hearse. Bleak has some of their greatest soloing and choruses, and Dirge For November some of the best and most beautiful guitar and vocal work from Mikael Akerfeldt. The title track is a monolith, and contains some of their most furious and pummeling guitar riffing and dissonant leads, but not without first featuring a four-minute clean and acoustic guitar passage, in true Opeth form. A classic album in every sense of the word and a must own for any metal fan.
Paradise Lost Draconian Times
Queens of the Stone Age Songs for the Deaf
"This is WOMB, The Womb. And if you, my pets, learn to listen. I'll let you crawl back in."
Radiohead Kid A
Radiohead OK Computer
An impeccable, diverse collection of mostly melodic rocks songs brimming with creativity and originality. Not enough can be said about the best album of the 1990's that hasn't already been said, other than that is certainly deserves that title thanks to its emotional resonance and diversity, also exhibited by its relevance and breakthrough at the time of its release.
Slowdive Souvlaki
Talk Talk Laughing Stock
The National Alligator
The National Boxer
The National High Violet
Tool Lateralus
Tool become even more cerebral and melodic on Lateralus, but their trademark intensity isn't lost. Songs like "Reflection," "Schism," and "Parabol" emphasize Tool's more psychedelic and meditative sides. "The Grudge" and "Ticks and Leeches" are much heavier and feature some of Danny Carey's best drumming. Keenan's vocals are a major highlight, as are his lyrics. Adam Jones keeps dolling out their typical guitar riffs, experimenting with effects and beautiful melodies. The bass is an obvious highlight, and is treated as a lead instrument. Interlude tracks are kept to a minimum, making this the only Tool album with almost no wasted moments. Lateralus ultimately features a new sense of songwriting maturity to Tool's artsy brand of progressive music in the 21st century.
Tool Aenima
Ulver Shadows of the Sun
Ulver Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler
Perhaps the most wide-reachingly influential album to come out of the Norwegian black metal scene, Bergtatt wastes no time in what it sets out to do. Not particularly evil or satanic at all, it instead revels in mystery and atmosphere. The first and fourth songs don't even feature any growling or screaming, and there is a notable presence of folk instrumentation as well. Garm's vocals are oddly tranquil, adding to the aura of the supernatural and mythological alongside the equally impressive and diverse instrumentation. The opener and closer are album highlights, and this is a true classic and essential to anyone who values Scandinavian metal music.

Riffs, riffs, and more riffs. BFD is ripe with shredding solos, folk interludes, and an astounding sense of energy and momentum reserved for classics like it, In The Nightside Eclipse, and Blaze in a Northern Sky. A Fine Day To Die is one of the most prolific and influential extreme metal songs ever put to record, and the thrashy vibes and truly epic lyrical themes of mythology and warfare make for a bloody fun listen.

One of the most evil albums ever recorded, A Blaze... is a truly devastating and monolithic take on black metal. It however contains just the right amount of death metal to give each song its true weight, the crushing outro of In the Shadow of the Horns being a prime example.

Porcupine Tree Signify
One of their most atmospheric and consistent releases, this says a fond farewell to their psychedelic days and welcomes a more diverse sound into the Porcupine Tree sound. We also get a glimpse of the heavy metal sound of future albums with the title track. Waiting Phases and Dark Matter are highlights.
Porcupine Tree Deadwing
Porcupine Tree In Absentia
Porcupine Tree The Sky Moves Sideways
Of course this has inspiration from WYWH by Pink Floyd, but there are enough electronic textures and modern sounding guitar riffs to make its own identity. The title track is one of the most adventurous songs Wilson's ever written.

Their sound becomes more streamlined and aggressive, and will be remembered as a highly spectacular achievement in a tremendously impressive discography.

An expansion of the style presented in their debut Roads to Judah, Sunbather almost plays out like a post-metal album. The songs have incredible endings, and the drumwork is a particular highlight. Sunbather does a great job of balancing tremolo picking guitars and blasting with atmospheric melodies and shoegazing/post-rock. A great summer album.

Judas Priest Painkiller
Judas Priest have never before and will never again record anything faster, heavier, and insane than what they have achieved on Painkiller. Despite some cheesy moments and a sadly lacking second half, Painkiller succeeds largely due to the strength of the guitarwork and Rob Halford's earth shattering vocal performance. The title track is also one of the greatest metal songs ever recorded.

Modest Mouse We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Eclectic and focused, We Were Dead... sees Modest Mouse decide to distance their musical styles even more. It almost plays out in alternating from stomping dance-pop rock songs like Dashboard and Invisible to mind-bending weirdness of March Into The Sea and Parting of the Sensory. Some might say it's hit-and-miss, and there are a few duds, but overall this is a very above average effort. It also contains one of the best songs the group ever recorded, Spitting Venom. Beginning very strangely, it exercises the group's dynamic ranges until giving way to a truly beautiful, atmospheric lullaby with horns and clean guitar over Isaac Brock's crooning before convalescing into a swirling blend of sounds, and fading into silence. I really can't say enough about this song, being their best, along with The Stars Are Projectors.

Musk Ox Woodfall
Woodfall is an unrelentingly interesting and adventurous foray into folk, classical, chamber, and progressive music. Only featuring a violin, cello, and classical guitar, Woodfall revels in beautiful harmonies, expressive melodies, and rich musical textures that recall all things celestial and naturalistic. Serenading The Constellations in particular features one of the most cathartic and jaw-droppingly astounding musical crescendos heard in any closing track all year. A massively impressive and unrelentingly beautiful exercise in genrebending, and with only string instruments, Woodfall is a modern neofolk classic.

A solid outing from GY!BE, this release sees the group flex their muscles in drone music even more than 'Allelujah. At times repetitive, other times brilliant as always, Asunder is an interesting and understated release that requires time and attention to fully digest.

Same basic structure as other LOG albums: one or two different sounding songs (Embers and Overlord), a mostly forgettable second half until the closer, and solid enjoyable riffing throughout. Could use more solos, but overall very satisfying.

Agalloch The Serpent and the Sphere
A departure from Marrow of the Spirit, Serpent displays some improved songwriting and a return to the doom metal sound of Ashes. The interludes by Musk Ox are among the album highlights, and the drumming is integrated much better into their music than on Marrow. There is unfortunately no clean singing, and not much vocals overall. Vales Beyond Dimension is an album highlight.

Surprisingly decent, relistens have forced me to bump this from a 2 to a 3. While the singing and lyrical
content is still mediocre or worse, the guitarwork is surprisingly creative and inspired. The drumming is
decent, but overall this is less thrashy and aggressive than their last two. 13 is still better than most of their
post-Youthanasia releases until UA though, which is saying something.

Not exactly what you might expect from the gothic metal pioneers, Lost Paradise is far from a bad release by Paradise Lost. It features some decent metal riffing and a great vocal performance, but overall is lackluster in the songwriting department.

Avenged Sevenfold Hail to the King
This is impressive. Never have I come across an album so relentlessly boring, unoriginal, and mind-numbingly
bland. Almost nothing in this album stands out or is surprising in any way. This is the worst kind of album,
one that it so devoid of substance or inspiration it boggles the mind. The drumming is so repetitive and
boring it's laughable. The only reason this is getting the incredibly generous score it is is because there's
nothing really to hate about the music, it's just a boring ripoff of classic heavy metal bands (Metallica, Iron
Maiden, Black Sabbath), the singing's the least annoying of any of their albums, and the guitarwork is
competent and occasionally almost interesting. This album can be used as background music at best, like
Coldplay. Heretic and Coming Home almost recommended.
