can only do a top 5
Wow graphics. Not sure I can figure that part out. I will just write them. Tough quiz any way you slice it -- how to quantify? I will pick my favorite band for 10 time periods in my life:
Yes - all albums with Steve Howe up to ABWH 1999 (not a Trevor fan) maybe Relayer or Topographic Oceans is favorite if I had to choose.
Pink Floyd - all albums from Piper to Final Cut
Rush - 2112 and Hemispheres especially
Led Zeppelin - LZ 2 is current favorite (JPJ's Bass playing is just...wow!), but I love 1,3,4,Physical and Houses so much too
The Beatles - White Album, Magical Mystery, Abbey
Cocteau Twins - Blue Bell Knoll - such a special album, maybe track 1 should have been left off or put in the middle somewhere. Track 2 is one of my all time favorite songs.
David Bowie - Hunky Dory
World Music Library - Music of Kraton Surakarta -- maybe the most amazing sonic experience you will probably never hear! Other world music greats of note: Gagaku from Kyoto Imperial, Persian and Turkish classical (the dustier the better), anything on the Ocora label from Africa, Folkways music of the Kalihari San and Kung Bushmen (both records), I guess I could go on and on with this theme. Soo Sooooo so many incredible albums....
John Lee Hooker - The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker
Bukka White - a few incredible tracks like Shake em on Down -- man!!
Joseph Spence - the complete folkways recordings 1958 -- you want to be blown away by original guitar fingerpicking genius?
Radiohead - OK Computer and Kid A
Beach House - Bloom
Alabama Shakes - both albums
ok so that's more than 10. enjoy
(edit) forgot Queen - A Night at the Opera
Blegh-core is love, blegh-core is life.
Tried to use the little app...failed.
I tried and tried to come up with a list, but it's easier to do it this way...
1. Every Queensryche album from The Warning to Promised Land. Mindcrime is best...followed by RFO and then Empire. From there it gets sketchy.
2. Every Dream Theater Album from Images and Words to Systematic Chaos.
3. Every Paul Gilbert solo/Mr Big record up through Get out of my yard.
After that the order doesn't really matter....I like everything from Megadeth to Better Than Ezra.
Pierced from Within
Appetite for Destruction
1. The Color Clear by Reflections
2. Born To Die by Lana Del Rey
3. Impulse by ERRA
4. Elitist by Elitist
5. Lapse by To Release
6. Breathtaker by Change of Loyalty
7. The Guilt and The Grief by Polaris
8. The Night God Slept by Silent Planet (SOOOO hyped for their new album)
9. Grave Mind by Outlands
10. Everchanger by Invent, Animate
Bonus Shout Outs //
Wishful Lotus Proof by Jakub Zytecki, Isometic by Jake Bowen, Crestfallen by AURAS, ...Comes To An End by DSME, and DVSR by DVSR.
A common theme with these albums is a large focus on emotion in the music. Before listening to albums like The Color Clear and Lapse I couldn't have cared less about emotion in music. Now the majority of music I listen to is both technical and emotional.

That's my top 10...I know, it's have terrible taste in music

Meshuggah - The Violent Sleep of Reason
Dark Funeral - Where Shadows Forever Reign
Emperor - Live Wacken 2006

Nevermore - Dreaming Neon Black
Gorguts - Colored Sands
Thats only 9 but at the time that's all I can come up with that is in regular circulation atm
Trying to get into older Dødheimsgard, as well as Marduk and Watain in general.
Your taste is fine, actually. However, I cannot understand why one would rank SOAPF as the best In Flames album
All time top twenty albums of all time, this is going to difficult, but here goes in no particular order...
Slayer `Reign In Blood`
Sisters Of Mercy `First And Last And always`
Metallica `Master Of Puppets`
Iron Maiden `Number Of The Beast`
Fields Of The Nephilim `Dawnrazor`
Therion `Secret Of The Runes`
Morbid Angel `Altars Of Madness`
Bathory`Blood Fire Death`
Dream Theater `Images And Words`
Anthrax `Among the Living`
Echo And The Bunnymen `Porcupine`
Liv Moon `Golden Moon`
Motorhead `Ace Of Spades`
The Mission `Gods Own Medicine`
Christian Death `Only Theater Of Pain`
The Misfits `Earth AD`
It took me about 25' just to figure out the top 10. No specific rating order on each category. I so hate you and love you for this topic...
P.S. It's sad no W.A.S.P. cover artworks were found. Both are really nice.
Periphery -- Self Titled, Sevendust -- Home, Pantera --Far Beyond Driven (always liked it better than Vulgar Display for some reason), 90's Fear Factory, Killswitch Engage -- Alive or Just Breathing, Sepultura -- Roots, Alice in Chains -- Dirt, Chimaira -- The Impossibility of Reason, August Burns Red -- Messengers, Lamb of God -- Ashes of the Wake (that's a tough choice)
