Best Rise Against Albums

The Top Ten

1 Sufferer & The Witness

My favorite album of all time, a truly life changing album. It has inspired me so much with songs like Ready To Fall, Survive, Bricks. I remember the first time I heard Rise Against through Prayer Of The Refugee, and I was amazed. I would give 2 to The Black Market, 3 to Siren Song Of The Counter Culture, 4 to Endgame, 5 to Revolutions Per Minute, 6 to Appeal To Reason, 7 to The Unraveling, and 8 to Wolves.

Simply the best.

Definitely the best Rise Against album and one of the most powerful and lyrically inspired records I know. The guys simply know how to play punk/melodic hardcore songs.
Take a look at fan favorites like Ready to Fall, Prayer of the Refugee or The Good Left Undone, but also at songs like Drones or Behind Closed Doors. The entire album creates an awesome atmosphere while talking about serious themes, combining honest lyrical content and the musical maturity to make this the best album by Rise Against. - YCLP33

My opinion the best album but Siren Song of the Counter Culture is a close second. You can tell this album is more polished and refined compared to their raw sound in earlier releases. This album to me is a turning point as
I find the newer stuff has moved away from their punk roots and more political and melodic sounding and dare I say... mainstream.

2 Siren Song of the Counter-Culture

As a diehard Rise Against fan, I love all their albums. But this one takes the cake as the best of their albums, or my favorite would be better wording. It includes a lot of my favorite songs of theirs such as "State of the Union", "Dancing for Rain", "Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated", "Swing Life Away", and my personal favorite Rise Against songs "Blood to Bleed" and "Give It All". Also if I had to rank all my Rise Against albums it would be: 1. Siren Song 2. RPM 3. Sufferer & The Witness 4. The Unraveling 5. Endgame 6. Black Market 7. Appeal to Reason... That being said all the albums are classic.

Siren Song, Sufferer and the Witness and Appeal to Reason are my favourite rise against albums and I know how everyone says that sufferer and the Witness is the best I might disagree. Sufferer and the Witness is too similar song to song. All the songs are very similar compared to siren song which has much more variety in sound. I like these top 3 basically completely equal but I'd have to say the rise against album with the most variety in sound (making it my favourite album as a whole) would have to be siren song.

I agree that Sufferer & The Witness is number one, but this album should definitely be number two. It is full of great songs, I never want to skip a song while I listen to this album. Also, it had a rougher, more metal kind of feel to it which is really nice. This album goes from 'State Of the Union' to 'Swing Life Away', both very different songs, but both very awesome. The overall feel of this album is way better that Appeal to Reason.

The best album of Rise Against ever. It has really great songs like Life Less Frightening, Paper Wings, Give It All, Anywhere But Here, and my favorite Swing Life Away. They say this is not as good as the other albums. Well their wrong. They have evolved since The Unraveling to The Black Market but Siren Song has been the one I loved since I heard of Rise Against

3 Appeal to Reason

This is the album that got me into the band in my opinion every song is a must hear and listen closely to the words.

I listened to this album for the first time about 2 years ago, it was my first experience with rise against and for some reason I can't stay away from it for too long. I've only listened to Endgame and The Black Market, so yes, I can't say I've heard every song or album that rise against has ever released, but so far this is my favorite.

my favorite song by them is re-education through labor and probably will stay that even though i've only heard like four of their songs i love that good rock is coming back!!! its been a while.

This album is fantastic and has many great songs, "Savior", "Hero of War", "From Heads Unworthy" and pretty much every other song.

4 Endgame

Guitar work to be honest

Compared to other albums like Appeal to Reason and The Sufferer and the Witness, this album itself really stands out from the others, due to the fact that took everything from all the other albums that they've done and combined it into this harmonic sequence of songs telling a story of the roads we've been on. One of my top 10 albums ever.

Are you kidding?! What sets this album apart from the rest is that endgame has literally NO bad songs! They're all masterpieces! Add on to this the songs that still somehow rise above the others - Make It Stop, Help Is On The Way, Satellite to name a few - and you've got an incredible album that others can't compare to.

This is an album that exemplifies the belief that the band has. It is a testament to what they stand for and why they do what they do. It is almost a magnum opus of sorts as I understand it. The song Architects specifically has this internal hope that it will get better.

5 Revolutions Per Minute

No doubt, the best album. However, I really enjoy Sufferer and The witness, Siren Song and The Unravelling. The rest are soft and boring.

This is true rise against. The lyrics are better than nowadays, the songs are harder and also more touching. The only reason I can imagine RPM has only got 12% of all votes is, that rise against doesn't play a lot of these songs on concerts in the recent past.
But to all who would vote for endgame or appeal to reason: Just take your time and pay more attention to songs like broken english or torches and learn to love them. You won't regret, I guarantee you

Damn, how is Endgame ahead of this? How is Endgame ahead of Siren Song (that used to be their most popular album). Anyway, I've been listening to Rise Against since '03. Although they didn't really become my favorite band until around '10 or '11. But RPM has always been my favorite album by Rise Against.

This has to be the best damn album I've ever heard. I love every Rise Against album to date, but Revolutions Per Minute has got to be my favourite. All of the tracks on this record are so close to perfection, all of which display how fantastic Rise Against is. I couldn't ask for anything better.

6 The Unraveling

How the hell is this so low down! I love all rise against albums but the raw punk rock sound of this one is chilling. I think this is so far down because not many people have listened to it, so if you haven't I highly suggest you do

There most punk rock album and every song on it is amazing. The only album that I find be better is endgame. For there first album its darn amazing

This is the best of all their albums. I get excited when ever they play any songs from The Unraveling live in concert. I bought almost all of their albums and this album is my go to.

Best album by rise against, rawer than the rest

7 The Black Market

Sure it's no Sufferer & Witness or Counter-Culture, but I'll be damned if this isn't their most beautiful album. It has everything that I love about Rise Against. Tracks such as "Methadone", "Tragedy + Time", "The Black Market" and "People Live Here" are beautifully written and define this album as some of their best work. It's fantastic.

Some songs are not bad, such as "The eco-terrorist in me", "Awake too long", "People live here", "A beautiful indifference" and "I don't want to be here anymore", but I pretty much hated every other songs. Rise Against is leaning more an more towards mainstream pop rock (I thought Endgame, as much as I hated this album, was a good sign).

I don't think it's a bad album, but not quite as many great songs as past albums. But it still beats Appeal to Reason in my opinion. My favorite songs would have to be "I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore", "Tragedy + Time", "Awake Too Long", "The Black Market", "People Live Here", "Bridges" and my personal favorite "The Eco-Terrorist in Me". But it does contain my least favorite RA song (Sudden Life), which while not a terrible song it really feels like it's missing something.

I don't know why people dislike this album so much. No it is no where near a sufferer and witness but I still think that this is an awesome album. Their sound may have changed a bit but so does every band regardless of what they are playing otherwise it gets borign and unoriginal. It may be less Hard punk rock but it is still Rise against, it still looks at all the issues they cover and has some brilliant songs on it.

Not my favorite album but should be much higher

Brilliant.
I Love Mourning in Amerika

One of the best albums of 2017

On a more important note... how is "This Is Noise" ahead of Long Forgotten Songs. LFS has all the songs from This Is Noise plus like 20 more.
