5.0 classic
Circa Survive Blue Sky Noise
Coldplay Mylo Xyloto
Converge Jane Doe
Deftones Diamond Eyes
Dream Theater Images and Words
Both images and words alone cannot describe this album. Cliched? Yes. True? Also yes.
Dream Theater A Dramatic Turn of Events
Enter Shikari A Flash Flood of Colour
Fear Factory Demanufacture
Green Day Dookie
Green Day American Idiot
Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Korn Follow the Leader
Linkin Park A Thousand Suns
What an album. Epic, beautiful poetry. Truly an experience to hear.
Mastodon Crack the Skye
Metallica Death Magnetic
An astonishing return to form. Mixes their classic prog-thrash with later blues-oriented arrangements; makes for a diverse, but cohesive thrash record. Sound engineering issues aren't nearly as bad as people say they are; I've heard much, much worse. Even if you're not a fan of the band, this is definitely worth a listen.
MGMT Congratulations
Epic and subdued, atmospheric and in-your-face at the same time.
Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral
Parkway Drive Deep Blue
Porcupine Tree The Incident
Top of the line production and songwriting, wrapped up in a thought-provoking concept album.
Public Enemy Fear of a Black Planet

If Dream Theater played synthcore, this would be the result.
Uriah Heep Demons and Wizards
Yes Close to the Edge
A prog classic for a reason. 3 really long songs and all of them essential for appreciating the potential of rock music.
Yes Fragile

4.5 superb
Animals As Leaders Weightless
Between the Buried and Me Alaska
Between the Buried and Me The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
Bring Me the Horizon There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It...
Pushes the "scene" forward with experimentation and excellent musicianship.
Cut Copy Zonoscope
DragonForce Ultra Beatdown
One of DF's best, and it's mostly because Vadim, the keyboardist, had a hand in writing most of the songs here.
Dream Theater Awake
Dream Theater Black Clouds and Silver Linings
The best of latter-day DT. "The Count of Tuscany" is absolute perfection.
Flying Lotus Cosmogramma
Flying Lotus Until the Quiet Comes
Frank Ocean channel ORANGE
From First to Last Throne to the Wolves
Glassjaw Worship and Tribute
Gorillaz Plastic Beach
Jimmy Eat World Clarity
Kate Bush 50 Words for Snow

Lady Gaga Born This Way
Linkin Park Hybrid Theory
Still sounds fresh to this day. A perennial favorite.
Metallica Master of Puppets
Muse Absolution
Muse Origin of Symmetry
Nine Inch Nails The Fragile
Of Mice And Men The Flood
One of my favorite modern metalcore albums. A nice amount of diversity in songwriting (for the genre), and Joey Sturgis turns in some of his best production work here; the bassy tone sounds like butter to my ears.
Pantera Cowboys from Hell
Passion Pit Manners
Album answers the question, "How many synthesizers can we fit into one rock song?" with "As many as possible!". Addictive and worth repeat-listens.
Porcupine Tree In Absentia
One of PTree's best. Minor inconsistencies keep it from being a classic, like how I feel about DT's Scenes from a Memory.
Porcupine Tree Fear of a Blank Planet
Rush Clockwork Angels
Slayer Reign in Blood
Steven Wilson Grace for Drowning
System of a Down System of a Down

Underoath Define the Great Line
Upon a Burning Body The World Is Ours
Never in my life have I heard brutality as focused as this. For a deathcore record, this is as good as it gets.

4.0 excellent
Animal Collective Strawberry Jam
Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill
Beck The Information
Really like the eclecticism and concept of it all. Excellent production by Nigel Godrich. Awesome do-it-yourself album artwork, too.

Gorillaz Demon Days

Green Day ¡UNO!
James Blake James Blake
Justin Timberlake FutureSex/LoveSounds
Kind of falls off toward the end, but the beats are top-notch, and JT's got charisma out the wazoo.

Linkin Park Meteora
Linkin Park Minutes to Midnight
Linkin Park Songs From The Underground
Linkin Park Living Things
Maroon 5 It Won't Be Soon Before Long

Melds plenty of genres, most of the time effortlessly, though the singles ("Kids", "Time to Pretend") got overplayed on radios, the mall, etc.

Vayden Children of our Mistakes
Nice use of dynamics and the band's energy is through the roof.
We Came As Romans To Plant a Seed
Intriguing debut, familiar but enjoyable. Replay value's pretty good.

3.0 good
A Perfect Circle eMOTIVe
Attack Attack! (US) Someday Came Suddenly
An excellent introductory record to metalcore, and has a few inspired moments to boot (opening 30 seconds of "The People's Elbow", breakdown in "Party Foul"). Just plain fun.
Backstreet Boys Millennium
Blessthefall Witness
Somewhat formulaic, but insanely catchy, and has a fair amount of technical and songwriting skill to boot.
DragonForce The Power Within
Escape the Fate Dying Is Your Latest Fashion
Evanescence Fallen
Cool sound, but they've much improved since. Lyrics are sometimes very cliche.
Fall Out Boy Infinity on High
Falling in Reverse The Drug in Me Is You
Korn Take a Look in the Mirror
Limp Bizkit Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water
Linkin Park Live In Texas
Linkin Park Sweet Hamster Like Jewels From America!
For a comedy EP, this is pretty fun. From Linkin Park, no less.
Little Boots Hands
Marillion Sounds That Can't Be Made
Of Mice And Men Of Mice and Men
Semi-quality metalcore record, though guitars and drums are overly compressed at times, and there are a few too many breakdowns scattered throughout.
Radiohead The King of Limbs
Skrillex Bangarang
Sleigh Bells Reign of Terror

2.5 average
Adam Lambert Trespassing
Asking Alexandria Stand Up and Scream
Has its interesting moments, and may be better remembered for further popularizing synthcore/modern metalcore tropes started by AA!'s "Someday Came Suddenly".
Attack Attack! (US) This Means War
Avril Lavigne Under My Skin
Black Veil Brides We Stitch These Wounds
Deadmau5 >album title goes here<

Soundtrack (Film) Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie
The Black Eyed Peas The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies)
No more "I Gotta Feeling". Please, I beg of you, at least play "Rock That Body" or even "Imma Be", just not the most overplayed song on radio since Nickelback's "Rockstar".
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Am I the Enemy
The Word Alive Life Cycles

2.0 poor
Attack Attack! (US) Attack Attack! (Deluxe Reissue)
Escape the Fate This War Is Ours

1.5 very poor
Attack Attack! (US) Attack Attack!
Very disappointing considering SCS got me into the genre, was hoping this album would be just as groundbreaking, but I guess these guys turned out to be a one-album wonder.
The Black Eyed Peas The Beginning
Pretty bad, but it's almost addictive in its synthy badness.
The Browning Burn This World
Download: "Burn This World" for a cool orchestral breakdown & hip-hop beat and "I Choose You" for some cool video-game synths, but otherwise ignore the childish lyrics and crappy production.
Woe, Is Me Genesi[s]

1.0 awful
Chris Brown Fortune
The album's only saving grace is "Til I Die", and that's because Danja produced it and the synths sound like a video game.
David Guetta One Love
Justin Bieber My World 2.0
Lmfao Sorry For Party Rocking
Nicki Minaj Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded
Only download "Come on a Cone" and "I Am Your Leader" for the great production, and then laugh & facepalm at some of the stupidest lyrics known to man.
Pitbull Planet Pit
