Metal Rambo's Absolute Favorite Albums Of All Time


My rather personal and improvised take on the subject matter. The list is pretty wage, I'll be updating it a lot and the order might vary a little depending on some things, but they're all great and awesome records no matter what.

Limited to metal and rock albums found on Metal Storm. Most of them (at least 90%) are anyway, so doesn't matter. The absent ones are mostly more pop and synth oriented stuff and some really obscure jazz and fusion albums.

1. Marillion - Marbles
2. Anathema - Weather Systems
3. Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time
4. Reverend Bizarre - In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend
5. W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol

1. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
2. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
3. Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor
4. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
5. Saturnus - Veronika Decides To Die

I Like Big Hits And I Can Not Lie (Part II: 21st Century)

Stuff that got me hooked in the course of the years, from my very first blurred memories as a toddler to the present day.
Lots of catchy tunes, some cheese, very few flowers.
Songs that had a big impact on me and influenced my taste in music.
Stuff to let it all hang out, songs for campfire sing-alongs and soundtracks to slit your wrists to.

1. Alastis - Unity
2. Diablerie - Seraphyde
3. Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
4. Emperor - Prometheus: The Discipline Of Fire And Demise
5. Hollenthon - With Vilest Of Worms To Dwell

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
