Top Ten Best Albums of 2005


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

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 Avenged 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?!

Long live a7x! They have been my favorite band for over 10 years! R.I.P the Rev.

4 Gorillaz - Demon Days

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

All songs in demon days are amazing!

5 Shakira - Oral Fixation Vol. 2
6 Regine Velasquez - Covers Vol. 2 Regine Velasquez - Covers Vol. 2 Regine 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.


7 Lindsay Lohan - A Little More Personal
8 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.

9 Geri Halliwell - Passions
10 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.

Best album of 2005 for sure! Was bestselling and won a Grammy! How can you not love it?

The Contenders

11 Opeth - Ghost Reveries

Definitely much better than most of these.

12 Curtain Call - Eminem

Except for FACK

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

13 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

14 Korn - See You on the Other Side
15 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

16 The National - Alligator
17 Queens of the Stone Age - Lullabies to Paralyze
18 Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better
19 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 LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem
21 Dream Theater - Octavarium
22 Flyleaf - Flyleaf
23 Bullet for My Valentine - The Poison
24 This Godless Endeavor - Nevermore
25 Fort Minor - The Rising Tied

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

Believe me and Remember the name are amazing.

26 Trapt - Someone in Control
27 Animal Collective - Feels
28 Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
29 Ascendancy - Trivium
30 Adema - Planets
31 Sigur RÓS - Takk...
32 DJ Bobo - Pirates of Dance
33 t.A.T.u. - Dangerous & Moving

This album is awesome.

34 System of a Down - Mezmerize
35 The Triptych - Demon Hunter
36 Trust Company - True Parallels
37 Thalia - El Sexto Sentido

Thalia is the best song

38 Disciple - Disciple
39 Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
40 Frances the Mute - The Mars Volta
41 Coil - The Ape of Naples
42 Nile - Annihilation of the Wicked
