My Top 75 Albums Of All Time

My top 75 favourite albums of all time (initially it was a top 20 list, and after that top 50). Only 1 album per band.

Albums with a star (★) have received a 10/10 rating from me. I've added genres and my favourite songs.

1. After Forever - Decipher
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde
4. Amorphis - Tales From The Thousand Lakes
5. Anathema - The Silent Enigma

The Epics (Because I Don't Think Pyramid God Is Coming Back)

My version of The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes) only this time it's more The Epics (Songs Over 10 Minutes) because we kept griping to PG and he wouldn't update his list. According to his profile he hasn't been on in... 371 days. So I thought "Hey, why not do it myself?"
Arranged by time. If you feel or know a song should be on here, let me know. I'm a mainstream fag, so I only listen to the popular stuff. I might have missed some bands.

1. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
4. Nile - Ithyphallic
5. Nightwish - Once

This is the list of my favourite progressive metal/rock albums of the decade. I decided to do this list because a new decade is starting, so it's a good time to look back.

1. Riverside - Out Of Myself
2. Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
3. Riverside - Second Life Syndrome
4. Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
5. Opeth - Blackwater Park

*The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes)*

This is a list of the top songs over 10 minutes long in my humble opinion. I had to resist the urge not to put every single Symphony X, Opeth and Agalloch song over 10 minutes long on the list so some of equally high quality are left off to increase diversity. Songs are sorted by approximate preference with #1 inspiring the list. I love long songs so if you know a good one please send me a message and I'll give it a listen. **Last Update 09/03/2011**

1. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
2. Gorod - Transcendence
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
5. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite

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
