Gonna be flamed for this, but here we go.
7Lamb of God

When a band keeps on for some time, it will inevitably come the hour and it will release a bad album. That's what happened with Sacrament. It's gritty, sure. Some songs, such as "Walk with Me in Hell", are quite cool. However, it suffers from boredom, excessive riff repetition, and annoying Southern rock influences, such as the track "Redneck", which shouldn't at all been included in any LoG CD.
6Lamb of God

An improvement by a far margin from Sacrament, Wrath adventures itself from more melodic territories ("In Your Words"), sometimes reaching something of a hardcore feel ("Contractor"). Is it as good as their golden trinity of 2000-2004? Hell no. However it does not deserve all the bashing it's given, since it was much better than its predecessor.
5Lamb of God as Burn the Priest
Burn the Priest

It was 1999 and they were a young band from West Virginia playing some groovy deathgrind with use and abuse of pig squealing. Probably that turned out wrong, but nonetheless this is still a reference in their career. If not for the quality, at least for the radically different style and for the fact that it's their first record.
4Lamb of God

Going even further in their gradual return to their golden era, Resolution excells by being...different. The Southern influence of Sacrament is there ("Ghost Walking"). The hardcore influence of Wrath is also there ("The Undertow"). However, in the middle of all that, the band decided to discover new kinds of sonorities, further enhancing their style, such as in the song "King Me", one of the best ones of their entire career.
3Lamb of God
Ashes of the Wake

The album that got me into this band, Ashes will be remembered as one of the greatest metal albums of its time. Aggressive, thrashing riffs, great drumming and accomplished lyrics make for the fact that in some way it sounded like the continuation of Palaces.
2Lamb of God
New American Gospel

It's got it all. Those lyrics. That darkness. Those vocals (an acquired taste, in fact). Those drums. Those riffs. Those breakdowns. In 2000, Lamb of God made what probably is the first masterpiece of their career. As Chris Adler himself stated, "we had no idea of what we were doing at the time". The production sucks - FACT. But you still can't undermine it. After all, every LoG show ends with "Black Label".
1Lamb of God
As the Palaces Burn

Some albums are so great that it becomes hard to express it. Palaces can be perfectly considered one of the greatest albums in history of metal, and, even more impressive, one of the very few albums released in the 21st century to deserve that title. A true magnum opus of a band that would later slowly lose its level of grandeur.
