22. Agalloch - Ashes Against the Grain

Lots of disagreement is going to be had over this, but I really think that Ashes is Agalloch's best album. The four big movements in the first half are all absolutely mindblowing, and then to top it off the album is finished off with one of the coolest three part movements I've ever heard. Lots of people will also shit on the last song, but I think its a good, fitting way to end the album.

Favorite Songs: "Fire Above, Ice Below", "Limbs", "Bloodbirds"







21. Devin Townsend - Terria

Devin's greatest accomplishment comes in at 21 on my list. There are so many good things I can say about this album. First of all, it is one of the greatest driving albums of all time. Secondly, the down to earth, honest vibe that this album gives off is just absolutely wonderful. I really think that Terria was the peak of Devin's musical career (although the DTP is pretty fucking good as well).

Favorite Songs: "Nobody's Here", "Deep Peace", "The Fluke", "Canada"

The Mantle > Ashes Against the Grain

Ashes is still excellent, though.

Don't listen to those idiots. Ashes Against the Grain is one of the best metal albums ever and you should definitely check it out.

20. Steven Wilson - Insurgentes

Wow, what an album. I cannot believe how amazing everything SW touches is. This album is so far beyond anything I could have expected, and everytime I spin it I am blown away by it. Truly remarkable.

Favorite Songs: "Veneno Para Las Hadas", "Get All You Deserve", "Salvaging"







19. Coheed and Cambria - The Second Stage Turbine Blade

The best Coheed album edges in the top 20 (which still makes all these albums beyond remarkable). Coheed's rawest and most energetic release has always stuck out apart from the rest of their material to me. It's just so different than most other music in the genre, and I feel like the music and vocals work very well. Don't really know what else to say. It's even better on vinyl

Favorite Songs: "Delirium Trigger", "Godsend Kid Conspirator", "Everything Evil", "Neverender"







18. Porcupine Tree - Signify

<3 One of the best "albums" I own. Many great moments and memories with this one, probably the PT album I listen to the most from the early era as well.

Favorite Songs: all of them







Pink Floyd - Meddle

The most underrated album in Floyd's discography. There is definitely not a single bad moment on this album (Yes, including Seamus). Every song sounds so different from the rest that it just keeps the album sounding so fresh and new every time I hear it. The most talked about song is on side 2, and I won't really go into it too much here. I think the true gems on the album are found in Fearless and Pillow. They feature some of the more candid and creative  playing that PF ever did. Nothing else I own really sounds like this album, and that's what I love about it the most, I think.

Favorite Songs: "Echoes", "Fearless", "A Pillow of Winds"

Ravenheart

All great choices. I actually expected to see Signify higher.

This. Thought it would have at least been in the top 15. But excellent picks!

Quadrochosis

yea, Signify hovered around my top 15 during the early phases of this list, but as I've re-listened to some older stuff, it dropped slightly.

As much as I'll be made fun of for saying this, I absolutely agree. This album in particular just sounds so much better to me on vinyl; moreso than any other vinyl I own.
