    Wow graphics. Not sure I can figure that part out. I will just write them. Tough quiz any way you slice it -- how to quantify? I will pick my favorite band for 10 time periods in my life:
    Yes - all albums with Steve Howe up to ABWH 1999 (not a Trevor fan) maybe Relayer or Topographic Oceans is favorite if I had to choose.
    Pink Floyd - all albums from Piper to Final Cut
    Rush - 2112 and Hemispheres especially
    Led Zeppelin - LZ 2 is current favorite (JPJ's Bass playing is just...wow!), but I love 1,3,4,Physical and Houses so much too
    The Beatles - White Album, Magical Mystery, Abbey
    Cocteau Twins - Blue Bell Knoll - such a special album, maybe track 1 should have been left off or put in the middle somewhere. Track 2 is one of my all time favorite songs.
    David Bowie - Hunky Dory
    World Music Library - Music of Kraton Surakarta -- maybe the most amazing sonic experience you will probably never hear! Other world music greats of note: Gagaku from Kyoto Imperial, Persian and Turkish classical (the dustier the better), anything on the Ocora label from Africa, Folkways music of the Kalihari San and Kung Bushmen (both records), I guess I could go on and on with this theme. Soo Sooooo so many incredible albums....
    John Lee Hooker - The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker
    Bukka White - a few incredible tracks like Shake em on Down -- man!!
    Joseph Spence - the complete folkways recordings 1958 -- you want to be blown away by original guitar fingerpicking genius?
    Radiohead - OK Computer and Kid A
    Beach House - Bloom
    Alabama Shakes - both albums

    ok so that's more than 10. ;) enjoy

    (edit) forgot Queen - A Night at the Opera

    Tried to use the little app...failed.
    I tried and tried to come up with a list, but it's easier to do it this way...

    1. Every Queensryche album from The Warning to Promised Land. Mindcrime is best...followed by RFO and then Empire. From there it gets sketchy.
    2. Every Dream Theater Album from Images and Words to Systematic Chaos.
    3. Every Paul Gilbert solo/Mr Big record up through Get out of my yard.
    After that the order doesn't really matter....I like everything from Megadeth to Better Than Ezra.

    1. The Color Clear by Reflections

    2. Born To Die by Lana Del Rey

    3. Impulse by ERRA

    4. Elitist by Elitist

    5. Lapse by To Release

    6. Breathtaker by Change of Loyalty

    7. The Guilt and The Grief by Polaris

    8. The Night God Slept by Silent Planet (SOOOO hyped for their new album)

    9. Grave Mind by Outlands

    10. Everchanger by Invent, Animate

    Bonus Shout Outs //

    Wishful Lotus Proof by Jakub Zytecki, Isometic by Jake Bowen, Crestfallen by AURAS, ...Comes To An End by DSME, and DVSR by DVSR.

    A common theme with these albums is a large focus on emotion in the music. Before listening to albums like The Color Clear and Lapse I couldn't have cared less about emotion in music. Now the majority of music I listen to is both technical and emotional.

    Finally got the site to work, so I figured I'd give it a go.
    This was wayyy harder than I thought it would be, haha.

    Dødheimsgard (DHG) - A Umbra Omega
    Gorguts - Pleiades' Dust
    Mayhem - Esoteric Warface
    Meshuggah - The Violent Sleep of Reason
    Dark Funeral - Where Shadows Forever Reign
    Emperor - Live Wacken 2006
    Limbonic Art - In Abhorrence Dementia
    Nevermore - Dreaming Neon Black
    Gorguts - Colored Sands

    Thats only 9 but at the time that's all I can come up with that is in regular circulation atm :hbang:

    Trying to get into older Dødheimsgard, as well as Marduk and Watain in general.

    Your taste is fine, actually. However, I cannot understand why one would rank SOAPF as the best In Flames album :scratch:

    Periphery -- Self Titled, Sevendust -- Home, Pantera --Far Beyond Driven (always liked it better than Vulgar Display for some reason), 90's Fear Factory, Killswitch Engage -- Alive or Just Breathing, Sepultura -- Roots, Alice in Chains -- Dirt, Chimaira -- The Impossibility of Reason, August Burns Red -- Messengers, Lamb of God -- Ashes of the Wake (that's a tough choice)
