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

The Absolute Romanian Metal Albums

A list of albums released by Romanian artists that may be metal or of relevance to the metal scene. Up until the 2000s, most of the releases are of rather historical than musical importance. Most of the albums released in that period and even from there on, suffer from horrible production, which might explain why newer releases are considered "their best".

1. Phoenix - Cei Ce Ne-au Dat Nume
2. Phoenix - Cantofabule
3. Iris - Iris
4. Celelalte Cuvinte - Celelalte Cuvinte
5. Altar (ROM) - The Last Warning

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
