2 Years At Sputnik - Top 10

Well, It's been around 2 or more years, or less, since I discovered Sputnikmusic and all its bountiful hives of opinion. I remember the first list I ever made was my "Top ten albums of all time", which quite few a people enjoyed flaming. (Two comments that stuck with me were "Come here son, you need a hug" and "So the lobotomy went well?". Well, I have to admit, my taste in music has evolved since then Sputnik has showed me a whole world of music I was barely aware of. And so, in light of this, most historical of dates, I am proud to present my revised Top 10 greatest albums of all time!

Remains to date the only album I have ever given a 5, as well as being my favourite album of all time. Ironically, I didn't discover this band through Sputnik; It had more to do with the fact that I live in Germany. Anyway, what's most amazing about this record is its consistent quality in all aspects of songwriting; melodies, hooks and lyrics are all expertly written and delivered (assuming you speak German).
2In Flames

In Flames' last (and best) purely-melodeath album. Only Come Clarity came close to any of their old stuff, and their latest offering (A Sense of Purpose) ist just horrible.
3Sum 41

Sum 41 used to be my favourite band, period. It's probably my 2nd or 3rd favourite now, but Chuck is the pinnacle of their musical feats, and puts them in a different league than their more undeserving peers (Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, etc.)
Victory Songs

A year ago, I would have put their self-titled here, but Victory Songs has just grown on me; everything seems a bit more epic and souped-up than their older stuff.

My favourite Catamenia album was Winternight Tragedies for a long time, but then I got a hold of this and my expectations were surpassed tenfold. There isn't a whole lot of decent melodic black metal out there, but this is definitely some of it.

I dunno if this really counts as an album, but I'm gonna put it here anyway. Absolutely mind-blowing if you have the stamina to listen to it from start to finish!
7Scar Symmetry
Holographic Universe

Scar Symmetry is like a good wine: It gets better over the years. I liked their first album, loved their second and worship this one. Anyone who's interested: Check out "Morphogenesis" first!
8Children of Bodom
Hate Crew Deathroll

These guys are pretty much the poster boys of modern melodeath, but that doesn't stop them having some genuinely kick-ass material. And of all their material, this kicks the hardest.

One of my few recent ventures into non-melodic realms, but not one I regret. Coalesce have shown me that some genres with "core" at the end are actually really good.
10Linkin Park
Hybrid Theory

Yeah, hate me, insult me, whatever. The fact is, I still kinda like 'em.
