Recommended Posts

As we approach the end of the decade (2000-9) what do you think have been the best albums?

 

Here's my top 20 (MHR only...couldnt be bothered to do modern!)

 

1. Allen/Lande - The Battle

2. Threshold - Dead Reckoning

3. Harem Scarem - Higher

4. Pride Of Lions - s/t

5. Jim Jidhed - Full Circle

6. Journey - Revelation

7. Work Of Art - Artwork

8. Threshold - Subsurface

9. Harem Scarem - Weight Of The World

10. Gotthard - Lipservice

11. Jeff Scott Soto - Lost In The Translation

12. Loverboy - Just Gettin Started

13. Brother Firetribe - False Metal

14. Millenium - Hourglass

15. Masterplan - Aeronautics

16. Steel Panther - Feel The Steel

17. HEAT - s/t

18. Crazy Lixx - Loud Minority

19. Place Vendome - Streets Of Fire

20. Jorn - Worldchanger

 

 

Quite a few of those are from the last 3 or 4 years as the early 00's were a bit barren.

 

Be interested what your best albums are.

 

Cheers

I have listed a few from each year (sometimes 1, some years 3 or 4) for the last 8 years (not including this year so far), but they aren't in any specific order, just my fave 20. There were loads of other goodies aswell, so quite hard to have a defining list.

 

Some nice picks by the way Glen :tumbsup:

Asia - Aura (2001)

Journey - Arrival (2001)

Saga - House Of Cards (2001)

Marillion - Marbles (2004)

Allen/Lande - The Battle (2005)

Frost* - Milliontown (2005)

Cheap Trick - Rockford (2006)

Spock's Beard - S/T (2006)

Yeah some nice picks....i need to check out the Prisoner and Michael Sadler as Ive not heard either of those.

 

On a side note 'Elevener' ?? Are you sure. I thought that was average at best. POL s/t slaughters that into oblivion. Just IMO of course ;-)

Def Leppard - X (2002)

 

Is this worst album of the decade? :lol:

 

Haha - You either Like or not for sure with 'X', as has been well documented. Yeah, it's poppy and nowhere near as good as the old stuff, but I like quite a few of the tunes (and still do) on it.

 

Looking back at 2002, there wasn't a lot of choice to be honest. Some good/ solid albums like Harem Scarem, Final Frontier and a handful of others, but not alot else of note.

Very sure mate - Elevener is one of my fave AOR discs in quite a while, and I much prefer it to the most of the POL stuff. I'm boring of Peterik's more recent stuff the more I hear it if truth be told. The Prisoner album has some great songs on it and Tommy D fantastic on it - good tuneage aswell. Don't like the processed drums too much though. Michael Sdler is very good, although I wouldn't say it may be a gamble for you, I may be wrong. Not like his old day job with Saga, although there is a smattering of Saga in there and It's a little more Mainstream in sound. Very varied throughout musically though, so some may take your fancy.

Good calls. I wanted to squeeze Newman and Harem Scarem in too, but just couldn't find that one album to include.

I purposefully left modern out.....would have been a few in there for sure. Surprised no Scarem in there for you?? Higher and WOTW are massive albums for me.

 

On a sidenote isnt Steelhouse '99?? Otherwise that would definitely make my list.

 

[also surprised no Hinder for you??!]

1. NIGHTWISH - Once

 

I had that shortlisted so again would have been 20 or 30 odd. Great album, but must admit Im surprised its sitting at no 1 for you. I saw them live on that tour - stunning.

Nice list - but wrong! That RETURN album was absolutely stunning, but was also 1992 rather than 2002. Sorry. I liked the second URBAN TALE more than the debut too - great stuff.

I love it mate - flawless. Plus it was so original when I first heard it. "Dark Passion Play" is also an absolute monster of a disc, but was still just behind this - mainly because of the weak vocals.

1. Steelhouse Lane - Slaves

2. Metropolis - The Power Of The Night

3. Millenium - Angelfire

4. Jaded Heart - IV

Kind of but because it is 2009 and a decade is 10 years, anything from 1999 gets included in my list
