5.0 classic
Alice in Chains Dirt
Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral
Queens of the Stone Age Songs for the Deaf
Sylosis Monolith
Wonderfully climactic melodeath/thrash that suggests a brooding atmosphere, making for a unique sound that at the same time is reminiscent of everything great about metal - could very well be AOTY

4.5 superb
Behemoth The Satanist
Behemoth puts out their most diverse album to date. The album is very well-paced, and each track sounds distinct, yet all of them share the dark tone that is portrayed through sinister melodic riffs and lyrics laden with religious imagery. Apart from the musicanship, this album has some of the most fitting production that I have heard in a while. The bass cuts through the mix to the point where it is as audible as the guitars, which is quite refreshing in the modern age of shitty metal bass production. In addition, the drums sound bombastic, and the way that they are mixed complements Inferno's rapid, precise, and performance. AOTY so far, could bump up to a 5
Bring Me The Horizon Sempiternal
What makes this album so great is that it builds upon the momentum of There Is A Hell. The large atmospheric and electronic vibe, as well as the addition of a fairly large amount of clean vocals (all done by Sykes himself for the first time) show the band finally finding their identity.
Converge You Fail Me
The introduction to a slightly simpler but more diverse Converge and, in addition, one with a guitar tone as gritty as Entombed.
Converge Axe to Fall
Converge All We Love We Leave Behind
Not relevant to the album but their passion and energy that they displayed at the Altar Bar was mind blowing.
Deftones Around the Fur
Deftones Koi No Yokan
Every Time I Die From Parts Unknown
Hail Spirit Noir Pneuma
A unique brand of black metal, with plenty of midpaced gloomy prog grooves thrown in to the mix
Opeth Ghost Reveries

4.0 excellent
Architects Hollow Crown
August Burns Red Rescue & Restore
Black Breath Sentenced To Life
Code Orange Love Is Love // Return To Dust
Deftones Diamond Eyes
Every Time I Die Ex Lives
Very aggressive and to the point, but not without its fair share of variety
Ghost (SWE) Opus Eponymous
Gojira L'Enfant Sauvage
Kvelertak Kvelertak
"What's better than death n' roll?" you might ask. Why, black n' roll, of course!
Meshuggah Koloss
Miles Davis 'Round About Midnight
Queens of the Stone Age ...Like Clockwork
Revocation Teratogenesis
Russian Circles Empros
The Dillinger Escape Plan Option Paralysis
A showcase of everything this band has to offer, with very well-written songs
The Dillinger Escape Plan One of Us Is the Killer
The Faceless Autotheism
Twelve Foot Ninja Silent Machine

3.5 great
Between the Buried and Me The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
Mastodon The Hunter
Opeth Heritage
Torche Harmonicraft
Wormrot Dirge

3.0 good
Avenged Sevenfold Waking the Fallen
Bleeding Through The Great Fire
Hatebreed The Divinity of Purpose

2.5 average
All That Remains ...For We Are Many
An overabundance of generic metalcore riffs and dull clean vocals burden this album. They are definitely very talented though, but I doubt they'll go back to their heavy ways, unfortunately.
Imagine Dragons Night Visions
Muse The 2nd Law

2.0 poor
All That Remains A War You Cannot Win
The unnecessarily autotuned clean vocals make the album sound dishonest. Overall, a really boring album. Songs like "Stand up" sound tired and uninspired, and is quite unfortunate, considering this band has clearly showcased before that they can make heavy and intense music.

1.5 very poor
Green Day ¬°UNO!
