Top Ten Best Albums of 2005


The Top TenXW

130 Seconds to Mars - A Beautiful Lie

No reason to even argue, this is definitely the best album of the year because of some reasons if I was to say I'd make a 10000 words text

2Madonna - Confessions On A Dance Floor

Coadf (Madonna) and My December (Kelly Clarkson) were the perfect albums of 2005.

3Shakira - Oral Fixation Vol. 2
4Gorillaz - Demon Days

AMAZING ALBUM. So much meaning in the songs, well-written yet extremely subliminal. Just love it.

5Regine Velasquez - Covers Vol. 2Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, dubbed as the Asia's Songbird is a Filipina recording artist, host, producer, philanthropist, commercial endorser, actress, and an Asian pop culture icon. She is widely known for possessing an extensive vocal range.

Following the phenomenal success of Covers Vol. 1, the SONGBIRD has yet again proved that she can make another platinum album.


6Avenged Sevenfold - City of Evil

Beast and the Harlot, Bat Country, Seize the Day, Sidewinder, and Strength of the World. 5 of A7X's best songs in my opinion and Syn's best album, MASTERPIECE! - Jonny

Beast and the Harlot burn it down sidewinder betrayed and MIA make it such a classic album.

Bat Country, Beast and the Harlot, Seize the Day, definitely the best album of the year of any genre! Madonna and Lindsey Lohan?! For real?!

7Lindsay Lohan - A Little More Personal
8Geri Halliwell - Passions
9The National - Alligator
10Kanye West - Late Registration

Why is this album not higher, if not at least in the top 5? You have songs like Gold Digger, Diamonds from Sierra Leone, Heard 'Em Say, Touch the Sky, and these songs were only the singles from the album! For me, this is the album that solidified Kanye West as a rapper, and it made both this and "The College Dropout" classics. - IAmTylerEvans

The Contenders

11Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
12Curtain Call - EminemV2 Comments
13 LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem
14Paramore - All We Know Is Falling

Their debut. Not their best album, but is the best album (next to A beautiful Lie - 30 seconds to Mars) of 2005. Paramore is an awesome band, they rock!

15Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better
16Queens of the Stone Age - Lullabies to Paralyze
17Coldplay - X&Y

I don't know why X&Y is so far down on this list. It has many great songs and is underrated - nolananderson

Come on! This album is so underrated! - KidA

Best album ever should be in top ten.

18Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists

Ummmmmm, I'm actually kinda confused, everybody has heard Ten Thousand Fists, Stricken, and Land Of Confusion and its not even on here? City of Evil's not a bad album but most people cant even name a single A7x song when Disturbed has 8 no. 1 singles - Sabres18

19Opeth - Ghost Reveries

Definitely much better than most of these.

20Animal Collective - Feels
