Just Another All-Time Favorites List

It's been about three years since I've considered this list. Looking at the previous one, I've clearly stopped giving so much credence to the stepping stone albums. Ride the Lightning and Rust in Peace, for example, remain important to me, but they don't get much rotation these days. When I listen to them, I think about how good they are, not how much they mean to me. I'm in a retrospective place right now, and thinking back to the high school days and what my wife and I used to spin led to a lot of the changes here.
20Nonpoint
To the Pain


My I told you so album. NP has settled into a pretty nice little pocket over the years, but IMO should have been bigger than godsmack or seether or any of those other butt-rock bands that never really had anything to speak of other than a couple catchy singles. One of the highest energy bands I've ever known.
19Seal
Seal


If I have to tell you how much this rules, I feel sorry for you. But I will definitely tell you if you let me.
18Sevendust
Animosity


Such an easygoing listen for riffs this bangin'
17My Chemical Romance
Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge


An album so good, a vocal performance so great, production so perfect that I could no longer write off an entire genre, no matter how badly I wanted to.
16The Offspring
Smash


Maybe the single most important record on this list that isn't #1. Helped me open up and listen to different things.
15Agalloch
Marrow of the Spirit


Fuckin' fight me. Their best work front-to-back.
14Marilyn Manson
Mechanical Animals


#1 candidate to return to the top 10 at some point.
13Boy Hits Car
Boy Hits Car


To date, my favorite summer album. Pure fun, unique frontman, killer riffs.
12Dokken
Under Lock and Key


You and I can discuss this at length, if you're interested.
11The Atlas Moth
An Ache for the Distance


I won't go so far as to say that this album saved my life, but it is certainly the soundtrack to a dark period and pulling myself out of it.
10Lacuna Coil
Comalies


I've embraced the goth vibe a lot lately. This album is just nonstop bangers.
9TesseracT
Altered State


Pure, tantalizing beauty. Some of the finest melodies on this list.
8Killswitch Engage
Alive or Just Breathing


A pivotal album for me
7Cloudkicker
Beacons


The most wondrous little sonic fireball, and one of the greatest explorations of djent in existence.
6Thrice
Vheissu


I legitimately used to listen to this album on my discman outside waiting for classes to start, and then just not go to class because I'd rather sit there and enjoy this.
5Candiria
What Doesn't Kill You...


Front-to-Back greatness.
4Rosetta
The Galilean Satellites


The single most devastating sonic experience.
3Iron Maiden
Brave New World


Has always been my fav Maiden, and it isn't particularly close. The band has like five 5's though.
2Tool
Lateralus


Majesty, perfection, mystifying and thrilling.
1Queensryche
Operation: Mindcrime


Always and forever and fucking untouchable
