    I cannot express how much I adore Ariel Pink, everything he releases is charged with originality. Good choice!
    Cheers, but I don't really like Ariel Pink outside of BT. Not a fan of zero production value, no offense to him. 8U

    Don't know if I could name 10, but I have two clear favourite albums.
    They are:
    Origin of Symmetry - Muse (just wins)
    Wasting Light - Foo Fighters (quite new but very, very good)

    I haven't been around long enough to put down a top 10 but Nirvana - Nevermind is one of the best that hasn't been mentioned yet.
    It's great but so many songs sound so similar to each other don't they.

    In no order: (Album then artist.)

    Aegis - Theatre of Tragedy
    A Twist in the Myth - Blind Guardian
    A Night at the Opera - Blind Guardian
    Complete Madness - Madness
    Costello Girls - The Fratellis
    A Snow Capped Romance - 36 Crazyfists
    At the Drop of a Hat - Michael Flanders and Donald Swann
    This is War - 30 Seconds to Mars
    Collision Course - Linkin Park ft. Jay-Z (And I don't like rap!)
    Disarmonia Mundi - Any of their albums really, they're all consistently good.

    The criteria are how many songs out of the bunch I like or how much I just 'like the album' which may mean I just listened to them a lot, especially when I was younger/enjoying myself. I tend to listen to songs, not whole albums. I tried to pick ones I own. Tried.
    Discounting OSTs.
