My Favorite Albums Of All Time

Seen a few of theses lists up, so I decided to make my own. Recs would be great.
20Edge of Sanity
Purgatory Afterglow

A wonderful mix of melodic singing and death metal growling.
19 Dissection
Storm of the Light's Bane

To date, I haven't heard a better Black Metal album.
18Thought Industry
Mods Carve The Pig

What the hell is this?
17Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral
16King Diamond

The only album on this list that I don't own. I've heard it tons of times, and I love it to death, but I still don't have it for some reason.
15Iron Maiden
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

Absolutely epic.
14At The Gates
Terminal Spirit Disease

If only it were a bit longer, if only.
Gutter Ballet

Most underrated album of all time.
Ride The Lightning

Every song here (yes, even Escape) is fantastic.
11System of a Down
System of a Down
Ok Computer

The best aspects of Jazz and the best aspects of Death Metal mixed results in a fantastic album.
8Strapping Young Lad

Nearly every contemporary metal band tries to be br00tal. SYL does it better without any half-assed pig squeals. Devin is one pissed-off guy.
Rust In Peace

The pinnacle of Thrash Metal. Once again, nearly flawless.
Blinking Lights & Other Revelations
5The Beatles

One of the first albums that I heard. I love it.
4Jethro Tull
Thick As A Brick

A masterpiece. The song is over 40 minutes long, and not a moment feels wasted.
3Elliott Smith

Incredibly intimate and sincere. Elliott has one of the most haunting voices ever.

The perfect mix of aggressive brutality and melody.
1Nick Drake
Five Leaves Left

No competition. Nothing that I've ever heard comes close to this at all. I've heard it countless times, and I still can't find a single flaw.
