Coldplay A Rush of Blood to the Head
I return to this CD time and time again, and now I'm not even sure if what keeps me coming back is more about the quality of the music or the nostalgia that comes flooding in with every track. Either way, it is a beautiful album.
Cynic Traced in Air
Devin Townsend Project Addicted
Most likely, Townsend is the greatest, most prolific creative music genius this metal world has ever seen. He's one ugly bastard, but damn if he doesn't make me cream myself with every new record he produces/creates!
George Winston December
George Winston Forest
If you love solo piano, these playful compositions will most likely soothe your craving. It's not the most intricately composed or even packed with talent... it's just, really enjoyable.
Gojira From Mars to Sirius
In Flames Come Clarity
Once again, definitely one of my top favorite albums by this band. Oh how I wish they were still this damn good.
In Flames Reroute to Remain
In Flames Clayman
In Flames Whoracle
This is probably the album that MOST metalheads can all agree was pretty damn good. Even if you don't dig melodic, you gotta dig the subtle death metal riffs and vocals throughout this entire album. It's so goooood!
In Flames Soundtrack to Your Escape
In Flames Colony
This is by far one of the absolute best albums the band has put out. I think they really embodied the heart and soul of melodic death metal in a good chunk of this album. The original lead guitarist featured on here definitely proved his glaring talent.
In Flames The Jester Race
Powerful guitar work, from the first track to the last! If this album doesn't make you drool all over yourself in feverish excitement, then you should check your pulse.
Insomnium In the Halls of Awaiting
This album is what made me an Insomnium fan. The slightly eerie atmosphere, the superb vocals, and the overall composition of each song is so beautiful and solid. Every song is awesome.
Insomnium Above the Weeping World
I can't get enough of this album. I get something new out of each track almost every time I listen to it. Metal brilliance!
Joe Hisaishi Spirited Away
Absolutely one of the greatest composers of today. Even if you haven't seen of the movies, he captures an imaginative, fantastical approach to music that is lacking in much classical compositions of today. It is a jovial escape!

Strapping Young Lad The New Black
Out of so many albums that Townsend has created through Strapping Young Lad, this one is my favorite. I just ... love it.
The Smashing Pumpkins Adore
Yet another highly prolific band, and yet, I think Adore just breathes sensuality and morbid curiosity... It's like the bad boy your mom always warns you about, but you always secretly fantasize over when no one's watching.
Thrice Vheissu
Every single track on this entire bloody album is amazing. From the lyrics, to the riffs, to the vocals... every OUNCE of this album is worth listening to time and time again. I get something different out of it each time I listen to it. It never stops inspiring me.

Coheed and Cambria No World for Tomorrow
This album is very reticent of Pink Floyd. Many of the songs have lengthy, progressive solos that sound ethereal and contain a lot of depth. It was an impressive direction for the band in my opinion.

Emarosa This is Your Way Out
Before Johnny came in and took over the whole damn band, Emarosa was definitely heading in a pretty solid direction. With tracks like Epoch Coda, they showed they new how a progressive track COULD be constructed. It's a shame they didn't continue on in the vein.

I was really worried that this band would follow in the footsteps of so many melodic death metal bands and compromise their sound over time, but they've stayed true to their roots while still growing as a solid metal band.

Memphis May Fire Memphis May Fire
Some of the tracks on here, like Cowbell's, have an almost progressive metalcore feel. The vocals are strong, but don't overpower the definitely strength in guitar work and drum work. Their later albums, unfortunately, don't carry through with that same "badass" creativity and experimentation.
Once Nothing First Came the Law
It's so raw. It's southern metal that's charged with vital frustration and punched with retribution. He sounds so damn pissed off, and all i want to do is stand behind him as he charges through the city in revolt.

It's a bit tragic this band doesn't get more credit. This album contains one of my most favorite songs: The Forest. It's a bit simple, but the lyrics are creative and imaginative and the piano work is light and provocative.

I get a lot of grief for diggin this band, but I actually like the insanely high pitched screams and I think their is certainly a good amount of decent guitar work and the drummer has some talent worth noting.
All That Remains This Darkened Heart
Sadly, I really believe this is exactly where the band peaked. With wonderful instrumentals and a strong lead guitarist, I think this band was heading towards good potential, but after losing their awesome drummer and caving into the demands of scene kids asking for more watered down metal, this band lost it's edge.

Children of Bodom Are You Dead Yet?
Possibly the only truly great album this band has put out. It always seemed like Bodom was desperately working their way up to SOMETHING spectacular, but always falling short of that mark. Then, their stuff got terribly repetitive and lacked ALL sense of creativity. While this is far from metal perfection, I think it embodies all the band could possibly amount to.
Chiodos Illuminaudio
I think the band made a wise change when they replaced their old lead singer. He may have had talent, but the change has obviously forced the band to step it up a notch. Where laziness was reigning, creativity and experimentation are moving on in... It'll be interesting to see their next moves.
Circa Survive Blue Sky Noise
Coheed and Cambria The Second Stage Turbine Blade
Coheed and Cambria From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
It's always an obvious answer: Welcome Home is an epic track worth recognition, but I think this band has a lot more room to grow.

When Johnny first stepped into the band, he was raw talent without much of that prideful bravado. It seemed like he had found a good niche in Emarosa, and a lot of the tracks on this album are actually pretty damn solid, but it's sadly the best they'll ever be.

I know that this is totally classified as a crazy guilty pleasure, but for some reason I really love this album. The vocals are pretty unique, if not a little odd, but what really shines out is the talent of the lead guitarist and bassist. These guys jam hard and aren't afraid to really grow and push themselves. I hope to see even better work, compositionally, from them in the future.

I have to listen to this album in small doses and only when I'm in a certain mood, but guaranteed, every single time I do listen to it, I'm amazed by the creativity and the experimentation of this band. They don't pull any punches and they take a lot of chances-- and they're musical talent bleeds through!

This album has some good moments, but it's a step down from their last album. It seems to lack depth and moves into an almost post-rock kind of territory, where simplicity is replaced with bland, empty tracks and platitudes. I was hoping for greater progressive epics, but I was deeply dissatisfied.

Much like the title, the entire album is much like a 99cent romance novel. It's kinda fun to listen to once, but after you know the plot and read all the juicy bits, you're ready to just stack it on your self and let it gather dust... or simply throw it away. It leaves no great impression and is easily forgotten.

Thirty Seconds To Mars A Beautiful Lie
This band is nothing more than a waste of time. They're gimmicky and cater to that ever growing emo crowd that think if a lead singer wears eyeliner and plugs, he MUST be badass and therefore, his music MUST be good. I cry bs.

If there was a way to cut out this kid's jugular and sell it to the squealing lil scene children ... I would do it in a heartbeat. I think i equate these guys with a Backstreet Boys of my generation. They aren't even worth being called N*Sync... they're THAT bad.

I will never EVER understand how a band THIS shitty ever sold so many copies of this worthless album. If there ever was an album I loathed more than this one, I'd probably have to throw up all over it.
Thirty Seconds To Mars This Is War
A bad band getting worse. How unexpected! An album full of poppy, vapid tracks lacking all creativity. No wonder it hit so high on the charts.
