My Top 75 Albums Of All Time

My top 75 favourite albums of all time (initially it was a top 20 list, and after that top 50). Only 1 album per band. The list is in alphabetical order, so it doesn't represent explicitly which album is my absolute favourite (I don't have one). All albums on this list have earned at least a 9/10 rating. Albums with a star (★) have received a 10/10 rating from me. I've added genres and my favourite songs.

1. After Forever - Decipher
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde
4. Amorphis - Tales From The Thousand Lakes
5. Anathema - The Silent Enigma

The Best Gothic Metal Albums

Note 1: This list will take time before it gets a definitive form (or it might take forever if good gothic metal albums will be released in the future).

Note 2: Another important feature is that this list will not take into consideration the Metalstorm way of labeling what is gothic metal and what isn't. Some albums have gothic metal elements yet they are not categorized as gothic metal. No hard feelings. I am also accepting suggestions as I might slip a couple of albums in the process.

1. Estatic Fear - A Sombre Dance
2. Tiamat - Wildhoney
3. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
4. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
