Top 45 Music Albums of 2005 by mrmcrook

Lot of good albums this year. Top half of this list filled with absolute crackers. Back half of the list hard to rank in a definitive order. Many of equal caliber. Greatest hits, compilations etc all ranked after studio albums as it's only fair on a year list.

Riffs. Rhythm. Melody. These guys are king of it all. There's no one that sounds even remotely like them. Totally unique. Truly original in sound which is what gives them the rite to being among Metal's elite. All hail the System 06/24 [First added to this chart: 10/17/2020]

QOTSA are the kings of producing tracks of great rhythm and flow. This seems to be a bit of an overlooked album. Fuck knows why? It's up there with their best. Even the slower songs make for some of the coolest lounge music ever with Josh Homme's crooning vocals. [First added to this chart: 10/17/2020]

The perfect blend of 60's, 70's and 80's rock. Saw these guys on a secondary stage mid afternoon at a festival when I'd never even heard of them. It was like going through a time warp. Every song felt familiar. Great hooks, riffs & catchy tunes. The drugs may of played a part at the time. And that's how you know you've found something great.... is when you get there album afterwards, listen to it stone cold sober and clean as a whistle, and still love it.

For myself, Opeth are the flag bearers of true prog metal and this is another fine album from them. Segmented, layered and complex on most tracks as always. They're one band which does take multiple listens to before passing judgement. Songs can be hard to remember due to complexity but the verdict is they are never one to disappoint and that it always turns out fucking great. [First added to this chart: 02/22/2022]

This is one of those albums that is easily forgotten. Then every time you pull it out,you realize it's so fucking marvelous. It's drift away music with subtle rock melodies and harmonies. Then you put it away and it's greatness is again forgotten. A strange tranquil rock beast. [First added to this chart: 10/17/2020]
