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

2. Iron Maiden - Rock In Rio
3. Iron Maiden - Dance Of Death
4. Iron Maiden - Killers

Top 50 Epic Songs (10+ Minutes)

My top 50 favourite tracks that are 10 minutes or greater. The list probably changes order depending on my mood, but I'm pretty happy with this one. I have left out songs from some big prog rock bands like Rush, Eloy and Pink Floyd. I didn't want to limit each band to 1 song as many of them have far too many "epic" tracks to ignore.

1. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
2. Lost Horizon - A Flame To The Ground Beneath
3. Virgin Steele - Invictus
4. Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
5. While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose

Guib's Essentials (Alphabetical Order)

Well, this is a very simple list and something you've probably seen a lot of other MS users do in the past. Basically, I'm just going to list the albums I wouldn't live without, my all time gems. There's no particular ''Genre'' that I'll be covering and I will also try to limit myself to one album per band and 3 favorite tracks (even though all the albums there have no bad tracks IMO, of course some exceptions may apply). Of course this is just an ''opinion'' list, meaning that I'm not saying these albums are all masterpieces or whatnot, it's just my personal favorites. I hope you'll agree with me and if not well, doesn't matter... Oh Also I'm only adding MS featured albums. I might add some comments in time for couple albums.

1. Absu - The Third Storm Of Cythrául
2. AC/DC - High Voltage
3. Alestorm - Black Sails At Midnight
4. Amon Amarth - Fate Of Norns
5. Anata - The Conductor's Departure
