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
4Regine Velasquez - Covers Vol. 2

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


5Gorillaz - Demon Days

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

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
10 LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem

The Contenders

11Curtain Call - Eminem
12Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
13Queens of the Stone Age - Lullabies to Paralyze
14Kanye West - Late Registration
15Paramore - 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!

16Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better
17Coldplay - X&Y

This is numero uno without a doubt. Not a single dud on the track list.

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

19Animal Collective - Feels
20Opeth - Ghost Reveries
