Current Top 100, 5 Years On

Back when I joined the site in 2011, I did a customary top 100 album list. Every year since then, when I've looked back at it it's become increasingly unrecognisable from my own tastes. Seeing bands I once listened to daily vanish from my playlists, new bands emerge as favourites, and bands even come and go in my reckonings during that time period (Iced Earth, Alcest, even Pain Of Salvation and more certainly peaked in my listening habits around 2011-12 to slowly vanish into obscurity). Now that it's just gone 5 years since I did that list, I thought I might do an updated list just to see how much my tastes have shifted. Whilst compiling the list, I pretty much worked on gut instinct, which was weird as I found myself almost disregarding albums I know I like whilst promoting albums I'm honestly undecided on - it almost seemed to veer away from album quality at times to embracing a subconscious effect the albums have had. Anyway, here it is, plus some honorable mentions that I was surprised missed out.

1. Dream Theater - Images And Words
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Protest The Hero - Kezia

10 Definitive Alternative Metal Albums

So here are ten alternative metal albums which I think are significant to defining the sound of alternative metal over the years, limiting it to one album per band and keeping to albums that are best described as alternative metal as opposed to subgenres like industrial or nu metal. I've also included what I consider to be the most important song from each album, even if it's not the best representative of the albums sound.

1. Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking
2. Faith No More - Angel Dust
3. Helmet - Meantime
4. Alice in Chains - Dirt
5. Tool - Undertow

Faith No More - Best To Worst

Faith No More are one of those bands that were true innovators. There are plenty of compilations out there that cover the singles and popular songs, but the albums are so varied it's worth digging a bit deeper than the "hits". For each album I've highlighted the best non-singles.

1. Faith No More - King For A Day... Fool For A Lifetime
2. Faith No More - Angel Dust
3. Faith No More - The Real Thing
4. Faith No More - Album Of The Year
5. Faith No More - Introduce Yourself
