Albums From The 2010s That Inspire Me

These are the albums from the 2010's that I love and that inspire me in my own songwritings. No particular order. Yeah, this list is short, but true inspiration is hard to come by for me. There are plenty of 9/10 and even some 10/10 albums that I love, but that DO NOT inspire me to create my own music.

1. Aquilus - Griseus
2. Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories)
3. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
4. Imperium Dekadenz - Procella Vadens
5. Spock's Beard - X

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 List Of Venice

My first list! Woo. \o/

All this is going to be is a list of all my favourite albums. Probably of all time, but I dunno. It's going to be a mixture of metal and non-metal albums. Enjoy. I will try to avoid some of the big guns, but I may slip one or two in. This will probably just end up being a list of stuff I really just kind of like.

1. Crippled Black Phoenix - I, Vigilante
2. Aquilus - Griseus
3. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
4. Major Parkinson - Twilight Cinema
5. Muse - Origin of Symmetry

Symphonic Metal Done Differently

Nightwish, Dimmu Borgir, Septicflesh and their respective clones are not welcome here. The title is a bit misleading since none of these albums are 'symphonic metal' per se, but they're metal with symphonic/orchestra elements added in a way that's unconventional, or at least as far as I know. Suggestions welcome.

1. Apocalyptica - Plays Metallica By Four Cellos
2. Aquilus - Griseus
3. Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
4. Blood Thirsty - Sanguine River Absolution
5. Igorrr - Hallelujah

A List Of Great One-Man Band Albums

Creating good music might not be an easy task, but most bands in existence consist of multiple members who contribute to the music. One-man bands however are simply musicians who create the music all by themselves, which, in my opinion, is very impressive. Because of the fact that there are quite a few of these talented musicians, I created this list. Of course there are many more one-man band albums than I have listed here and that's why I'm open to suggestions. So be sure to give me recommendations and also let me know if I listed the "wrong" album by a band (in your opinion). Lastly, the list is ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. I only add 1 (full-length) album per band (and only albums that are featured on MS).

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Brown Jenkins - Death Obsession
4. Cloak Of Altering - Ancient Paths Through Timeless Voids
5. De Magia Veterum - The Divine Antithesis
