Best Of 2021!


Another year, another list. Huh time flies. First 10 in order I think was best of the best. Last 10 worst of the worst. Rest is in a order as I think they fits (based on todays perspective) , maybe december albums are higher as januari ones and also some middle albums might be 2-3 places higher, lover.
PS If there are duplications, let me know.

5 Greek bands in the top-7. Man, you like my country's music more than I do. I am surprised that you found the latest Swallow The Sun to be among the worst. I didn't find it particularly interesting either, but among the worst? Trivium's is definitely a very good album but I guess you don't like the style (neither do I), so I understand why it's placed there. And I agree with you that the latest Beast In Black is awful.

All those are what I listened more as 3 times. There are more albums I heard but once, so I left them out.
O yes Epica I did listen once big band, and bad one so I make in a list. Same as lastest Nightwish in last years list got bad place after one listen.
I usually add in last 4 years best of after 3 or more listens.
Besides I listened to old albums same often
