A Chronology Of Masterpieces

What seems the most important albums for me in chronological order.
I wish I could carry the list year after year to see how my tastes changed and new findings.
I can help but notice that old albums immediately strike me, while in recent times most albums are good but nothing is groundbreaking. We have a tide of releases in the last decades, and standing above the other requires an impossible lot of talent.
Or is it my listen habbits that changed ? I felts I listened to the old albums albums for a lifetime while I'm only surface checking the new ones. Too little time, too little time to truly live...
Also the mixing technology, the sound is too flat nowadays and lack impact and personnality

1. Frank Zappa - Freak Out
2. The Who - Tommy
3. Frank Zappa - Uncle Meat
4. Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
5. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King

Some years have so many options....

2. Black Sabbath - Master Of Reality
3. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Vol. 4
4. Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
5. Blue Öyster Cult - Secret Treaties

My Favourite Albums of All Time

I've been listening to Metal since 2005 and it has become my biggest passion in life.

Rarely a day goes by where I don't listen to it in one form or another. The bands I listened to in my teens inspired me to pick up the guitar (and later drums) and start making music of my own.

Metal means everything to me and I would be lost without it. So here are the albums that have stood out and made the largest impact on me.

1. Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
2. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
3. Opeth - Blackwater Park
4. Edge Of Sanity - Crimson
5. Opeth - Still Life

Best Album From Each Year

Unfinished as I still have to catch up on more recent years. Also all of the places on the list are of course subject to change as I discover more music from each year.

My taste is very much centred around the power of the riff. That means most of the albums on this list are thrash, death, heavy, black, or some offshoot of those genres.

1. After The Burial - Dig Deep
2. Behemoth - The Satanist
3. Carcass - Surgical Steel
4. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
5. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Agony

1. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
2. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
