Current Top 100, 5 Years On

Back when I joined the site in 2011, I did a customary top 100 album list. Every year since then, when I've looked back at it it's become increasingly unrecognisable from my own tastes. Seeing bands I once listened to daily vanish from my playlists, new bands emerge as favourites, and bands even come and go in my reckonings during that time period (Iced Earth, Alcest, even Pain Of Salvation and more certainly peaked in my listening habits around 2011-12 to slowly vanish into obscurity). Now that it's just gone 5 years since I did that list, I thought I might do an updated list just to see how much my tastes have shifted. Whilst compiling the list, I pretty much worked on gut instinct, which was weird as I found myself almost disregarding albums I know I like whilst promoting albums I'm honestly undecided on - it almost seemed to veer away from album quality at times to embracing a subconscious effect the albums have had. Anyway, here it is, plus some honorable mentions that I was surprised missed out.

1. Dream Theater - Images And Words
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Protest The Hero - Kezia

Blind Guardian Discography (Ranked)

My personal ranking of all the Blind Guardian studio albums. I think all of their albums in the 90's are absolutely fantastic and my favourite has switched around a few times because of this. For quite a few years it was Tales From The Twilight World, then it was Imaginations From The Other Side. I have to agree with my number 1 choice though. When it comes to the worst albums, I don't actually think they have any weak studio albums, but the debut isn't really impressive to me and while Follow The Blind was an improvement, it still lacks something when compared to the releases that would come after. I think A Twist In The Myth is somewhat underrated and I was highly disappointed with their 2015 release Beyond The Red Mirror

1. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
2. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
3. Blind Guardian - Tales From The Twilight World
4. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
5. Blind Guardian - A Night At The Opera

Epic Album Closers

Some albums are really good. Many of these are good all the way around. And, in many cases, there is a single song that stands out, sometimes it's the last song on the album. This is a list of those songs.

For a more in depth look at this, I've codified each into a given category:
Type 1 - 'The long song at the end.' Often the title track. These have a tendency to be most well written and dynamic pieces on the album.

1. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
2. Abigail Williams - Becoming
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Amon Amarth - Versus The World
5. Anekdoten - Vemod
