2 Indestructible - Disturbed

I am a diehard Metallica fan, but Indestructible tops Death Magnetic by a long road. It has more and better riffs and solos as well as equivalent, if not better, singing and lyricism. Disturbed is the winner this year.

Indestructible and Scream Aim Fire are not only the two best albums of 2008, they are the best albums of all time.

I was pleased to see them so high on the list. - thunder850

This is an album any rock fan should have. - aeromaxx777

3 Appeal to Reason - Rise Against

One of the only punk rock bands that's still making good and non-commercial music, this album proves it, it proves there's still good punk-rock music, and songs like re-education, from heads unworthy or audience of one make the album definitely deserve to be in the top10, if not top5.
