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 Shakira - Oral Fixation Vol. 2
4 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.

Easily the best album out there.

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

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

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

All songs in demon days are amazing!

9 Geri Halliwell - Passions
10 Opeth - Ghost Reveries

Definitely much better than most of these.

The Newcomers

? Mudvayne - Lost & Found
? Charge!! - The Aquabats!

The Contenders

11 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?

12 Curtain Call - Eminem

Except for FACK

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

13 Korn - See You on the Other Side
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 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!

17 Dream Theater - Octavarium
18 Coll:set - D'espairsray Coll:set - D'espairsray
19 Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better
20 Mindless Self Indulgence - You'll Rebel To Anything
21 Flyleaf - Flyleaf
22 This Godless Endeavor - Nevermore
23 Vheissu - Thrice
24 Fort Minor - The Rising Tied

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

Believe me and Remember the name are amazing.

25 Bullet for My Valentine - The Poison
26 Trapt - Someone in Control
27 Animal Collective - Feels
28 DJ Bobo - Pirates of Dance
29 Thalia - El Sexto Sentido

Thalia is the best song

30 Ascendancy - Trivium
31 Catch Without Arms - Dredg
32 Adema - Planets
33 The Triptych - Demon Hunter
34 Make Believe - Weezer
35 Jennifer Lopez - Rebirth
36 Trust Company - True Parallels
37 Sigur RÓS - Takk...
38 t.A.T.u. - Dangerous & Moving

This album is awesome.

39 Queens of the Stone Age - Lullabies to Paralyze
40 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

41 Disciple - Disciple
42 Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
43 Coil - The Ape of Naples
44 Anggun - Luminescence
45 Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth
46 Nile - Annihilation of the Wicked

Had to add this masterpiece.

47 Alaska - Between the Buried and Me
48 Robbie Williams - Intensive Care
49 10 Years - The Autumn Effect
50 Mariah Carey - The Emancipation Of Mimi
