Top Ten Best Albums of 2005

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 30 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

2 Madonna - Confessions On A Dance Floor

Who needs DJ when u can just play this album. Once u play it in your own house or room, u can't stop dancing. Sadly, this is her last good album.

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

This album is so AWESOME. Everything Madonna does is different, as she's always innovating shouldn't be different with this.
Full non-stop album like a DJ Set on a Dance Floor. plus a beautiful album

3 Shakira - Oral Fixation Vol. 2

I think this is Shakira's most serious and creative album to date. I love every single song here

4 Avenged Sevenfold - City of Evil

Easily the best album out there.

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?!

"EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHES TURNED PLATINUM" - reigne27

6 Lindsay Lohan - A Little More Personal

You may hate me but I love this album. Lindsay caught my eye with her debut album Speak (2004) but she really surprised me with this one

7 Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

How is this even up for debate? This album was ranked the best album of 2005 by critics everywhere. Anyone who has listened to it will tell you. - PeterG28

A million times better than anything on the list before it. a true masterpiece.

8 Gorillaz - Demon Days

This is one of the most underrated albums ever

All songs in demon days are amazing!

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

9 Coldplay - 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.

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

10 Korn - See You on the Other Side

The Newcomers

? Be - Common
? The Minstrel Show - Little Brother

The Contenders

11 Geri Halliwell - Passions
12 Opeth - Ghost Reveries

Definitely much better than most of these.

13 Curtain Call - Eminem

Except for FACK

A album with most of his greatest songs + new songs - DK

14 Disturbed - 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

15 The National - Alligator
16 Kanye 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

17 Dream Theater - Octavarium
18 Paramore - 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!

20 DJ Bobo - Pirates of Dance
21 Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better
22 Mindless Self Indulgence - You'll Rebel To Anything
23 Flyleaf - Flyleaf
24 This Godless Endeavor - Nevermore
25 Vheissu - Thrice
26 Bullet for My Valentine - The Poison
27 Fort Minor - The Rising Tied

Remember the Name is the best song on this album - DK

31 Ascendancy - Trivium
