My Favorite Non-Black Metal Albums

This list is dedicated to my favourites albums of all subgenres except Black Metal. I think that a "one-album-per-band" list wouldn't make much sense, so I'll put a maximum of 3 albums per band.

1. Hypocrisy - Hypocrisy
2. Hypocrisy - The Final Chapter
3. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
4. In The Woods... - Omnio
5. Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape

2000-2014: A 'Factored' Top 100

Take a look at the Top Album lists of recent years and you'll notice an obvious trend. In 2005 the average rating of the top 25 albums is 8.76. Jump to 2014 and the average among the top 25 has dropped to 8.26. An almost linear decrease is observable for the 10 years in between.

I was curious to see what a Top 100 for 2000-2014 would look like if I factored the votes to account for the 'rating decline'. I hope you find it interesting.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Blindead - Affliction XXIX II MXMVI
4. Aquilus - Griseus
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World
