Beginner's Guide To Building A Prog Collection (Standards, And A Few Unorthodox Choices)

Limited to one album per band and only those featured on Metal Storm.
I feel these albums demonstrate certain qualities that can be of enjoyment to someone who is interested in avantgarde, experimental, extreme, fusion, jazz, post rock, and technical forms of metal.


1. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
3. Rush - Moving Pictures
4. IQ - The Road Of Bones
5. Opeth - Still Life

Supermassive List: Top 20 Picks of Each Year of the Last Decade (2000-2009)

This is not a typical "Best of the decade" list. To be more precise, it's a list about the top 20 albums of each year of the last decade (the ones in MS), in my perspective of course. In this way, a lot of good albeit overlooked albums can get some exposure, in addition to covering more ground at the same time.

1. 2009
2. Sybreed - The Pulse Of Awakening
3. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
4. Porcupine Tree - The Incident

My Favorite 40 Metal Albums Ever (+5...)

Overhauled as of May 10th, 2012! Top 5 favorite non-metal albums featured at the bottom.

This is a much improved (and more recently accurate) reworking of my previous favorite albums list, with a few albums added and a couple dropped entirely. They are in order of preference, though changes and the possibility of total equals are still in play. I've axed my undescriptive commentary but kept my genre and favorite song catgories.

1. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
2. Anubis Gate - The Detached
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Crimson Glory - Crimson Glory
5. Metal Church - Hanging In The Balance

Coolingsrock's List Of Technicalities And Progressiveness

Technical and Progressive albums. Pretty much alphabetical order. comment for suggestions. If I added a band but didn't put all the albums, its because I never got around to listening to their complete discography or didn't find it technical or progressive.

Other good albums that didn't make it to the list:

1. After The Burial - Rareform
2. Allegaeon - Elements Of The Infinite
3. Animals As Leaders - Animals As Leaders
4. Animals As Leaders - Weightless
5. Animals As Leaders - The Joy Of Motion

2008: The Amphibian Halo (as In 'my Blurry View Of 2008')

Updated version of the list previously published here. You'll notice that the comments are a bit different for sure, as is the order:
1 to 3: best of the year (in preference order)
4 to 25: other great stuff (alphabetical order)

And then there were some average (sometimes bad, sometimes good) albums that didn't make it in this list, but they featured some of the most awesome songs of the year. Like Voices Of The Fallen by Battlelore, Dylath-Leen's Frozen Reflect On A Broken Mirror, and particularly Iced Earth's Come What May...

1. Textures - Silhouettes
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Burst - Lazarus Bird
4. ADX - Division Blindée
5. Cynic - Traced In Air
