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

Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]
