| ||Kamelot The Shadow Theory|
It's a Kamelot album that isn't Karma, Epica or The Black Halo.
| ||The Spacelords Water Planet|
Imagine tasting a planet-wide supply of water with everything but your mouth and nose. That's Water Planet.
| ||Paradise Lost Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us|
Paradise Lost at their catchiest without coming across as off-putting. If anything, the fact they were able to craft an album that takes traces of their doom and gloom foundation and make it this fun is all the more testament to how impressive this album is.
| ||Stratovarius Twilight Time|
One of the more palpable power metal albums I've heard, Twilight Time is about as unassuming as its genre can get. The early-grade production is actually part of this album's charm, since it's just enough to get the fantastical elements across but not enough to propel it into the completely overzealous nature that several like-minded bands succumb to. Objectively speaking, it's still by-the-numbers power metal with little to help it stand out (but less to hold it down); yet compared with so many other albums, including the band's own, it manages to be just refreshing enough to stand out.
| ||Judas Priest Firepower|
Halford, Tipton and Hill have either hit or are pushing 70 and they're still able to produce a more kick-ass record than half the new metal bands these days.
| ||Kreator Phantom Antichrist|
Kreator stick to their guns as ever, unleashing pure, unrelenting thrash metal that will get your blood pumping, heads banging and fists soaring, and that's just for the appetizer.
| ||Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto Glass|
Glass asks you to focus all attention on itself and suspend everything else. This is an album that, for the right listener, will slow them down to a stand-still and allow them to become more singularly focused.
