Curse Presents His Top 50 (with Descriptions!)

My top 50 favorite albums ever. Complain below.
50Blood For Blood

19 minutes of Boston hardcore done right
49City and Colour

Dallas Green lays his heart out for all to see
Summon In Thunder

The reason for my username
47Fair To Midland
Fables From A Mayfly

Taking rock and kicking it in the balls
46Bat For Lashes
Two Suns

Natasha Kahn you might be the love of my life
45The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead

44Blind Guardian
Nightfall In Middle-Earth

A power metal concept album telling the story of The Silmarillion. Need I
say more?
43Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire likes to fill their suffering with bombast
Catch For Us The Foxes

talk-singing never sounded so good
41Elliott Smith
Figure 8

Quite possibly the greatest singer-songwriter of all time
Master Of Puppets


A post-metal epic
38Joy Division

Ian Curtis was probably the saddest man to ever live
Morning View

Before they got really queer
Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere EPs

A collection of EPs turns out to be far better than any full-length they ever
35Alice In Chains
Jar Of Flies

AiC's lighter side shows that even stripped down they were the best
songwriters of the grunge era
34Between The Buried And Me

BTBAM before they started fucking their instruments
Worship And Tribute

Daryl and Co create a post-hardcore masterpiece
32Elliott Smith

Round two for Elliott
31Black Star
Black Star

Mos Def and Talib Kweli join forces to create a stunning hip-hop album
We Are The Romans

An utterly perfect metalcore album in every way
29Brand New
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me

Jesse Lacey finally realizes all that potential, and in the process proves that
he is the most talented artist to ever have been in Taking Back Sunday.
28Alice In Chains

A harrowing depiction of drug use and easily the best album from the
grunge era
27Wolves In The Throne Room
Two Hunters

American black metal that shoos away corpsepaint in favor of eating dirt
26 The Who
Who's Next

A legendary band decides to play around with electronics and it is a brilliant
25Radical Face

Indie brilliance
24At The Drive-In
Relationship Of Command

See 23
The Shape Of Punk To Come

Ripped off by everyone and for good reason
22Aesop Rock
Labor Days

The king of absurdism at his best

By far Opeth's softest album. It also happens to be their best.
20Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica

Modest Mouse shows that they can be a little off and still write cohesive
and meaningful songs.

Thrice shows that they can experiment with the best of them.
18Coheed and Cambria
In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3

Utterly brilliant album, and a level they will never reach again.
White Pony

The reason nu-metal will never die. Well, that and middle school goth kids.
16Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

So many crazy layers converging to make in incredibly cohesive final product
15The Dillinger Escape Plan
Calculating Infinity

Mathcore(not a real genre) before it was cool
14Modern Life Is War

Absolutely stunning hardcore album, and one whose sound is being ripped
off by everyone.
13 The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Let's Face It

Best ska album ever
12Goo Goo Dolls
A Boy Named Goo

Eat Shit
11Regina Spektor
Soviet Kitsch

Just fucking marry me already
10Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over The Sea

blahblahblah NEXT
Jane Doe

see above
Never Better

My absolute favorite hip-hop album. Vehemence and honesty in every verse.
7Explosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

Few bands can show so much emotion without singing a single note.
Carry Ourselves

Melodic hardcore at its absolute best, even if the vocalist is terrible.

Anberlin reached their peak with Cities, creating an album that is wall to
wall perfect.
4The National

Who would have thought that a guy with such a dour voice could convey so
3The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

The Gaslight Anthem took americana and added a couple dashes of punk
and a shitload of sincerity. This album has unlimited replay value.
2Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago

Justin Vernon crafted a masterpiece, and there is no way he could ever top
it. Simply awe-inspiring album, front to back.
1Misery Signals

I love everything about this album, the musicianship, the vocals, everything.
Schubach's lyrics are what takes it to the next level though, something
about it gets me. Not a single second of this album lags.
