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.

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?!

4 Gorillaz - Demon Days

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

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.

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 V 2 Comments
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
