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

KB's Favorite Albums Of All Time (Only Metal)

Here is my provisional favorite-metal-albums-of-all-time-list! Enjoy!
The first 10 albums are in pretty accurate order. However, after that, it becomes harder and harder to separate the albums clearly. Thus, you can say that I enjoy album x on the list as much as the others in the interval of (x-5) to (x+5). For example album 37 would be as much enjoyed as 32, 33, 34, ..., 42, or something like that.

1. Cult Of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway
2. Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor
3. Grand Alchemist - Intervening Coma-Celebration
4. Opeth - Blackwater Park
5. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
