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

Chobo's Choices For Top 25 Favourite Albums

Here is a list of my favourite albums of all time (that are on Metalstorm). I have limited it to one album per band. The albums are ordered in alphabetical order. The list is subject to change over time, but nearly all albums on here are set in stone and have been extremely influential on my musical tastes. If you think you have an album that could squeak its way onto this list, by all means suggest away.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Ahab - The Divinity Of Oceans
3. Amon Amarth - Versus The World
4. Cult Of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway
5. Death - Symbolic

Mr. Cheeky's Favourite Debut Albums Throughout The Years

This is a list of my favourite debut albums.
I'm sure there are some years that will have multiple great debut albums but I'm limiting to only putting one band per year.
The ones that I put in the list is (in my opinion) the best debut album of that year, while the rest are put in honourable mentions.

1. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
2. AC/DC - T.N.T.
3. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
4. Venom - Welcome To Hell
5. Witchfinder General - Death Penalty
