Best Rock Albums of 2010

The Top Ten
A Thousand Suns- Linkin Park A Thousand Suns- Linkin Park Product Image

Lp lp everywhere... you know when I heard it the first time I found it okay... but as the time passed I found this one excellent... many of lp fans are hating this because this one is a bit slow... I just wanna say them that we can't expect always the same thing form them, no band or no artist remains same throughout his / her carrier... this one was experomental and great... and last but the least this album has awesome beats...

Whatever they do to there style... Its like they know what the mind needs while it feeds on music...
Not my favourite but still sounds really good...
Loved Nightmare 2.

Nightmare is great, but A Thousand Suns shows that LP can change their style and yet still make great music, they never fail to impress me.

A thousand suns is an experimental Album which is very differnet from there previous nu metal genere and has done well!

Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold Product Image

Add up all the emotion from all the other albums listed and you still you won't come close to what Avenged put into this album.

And to top it all off, it's musically one of their best yet. They ranged from ballad to heavy thrash a la Pantera, with blistering, dueling guitars and perfect vocals.

Considering their friend, brother and drummer died before recording commenced, a less-than satisfactory record would have been acceptable and lightly critiqued. But these guys showed the resiliency to shred their way to a masterpiece. It's really commendable and awe-inspiring.

So even though the music speaks enough of its greatness, I think this album deserves to be higher listed as one of the best albums of the year when you combine the music with the emotion and work put in.

The worst Linkin Park album and the one that proves they have changed to more commercially succesful music and somehow a pop sound is top1 and Nightmare is just top5? No way, this album shows good metal is still done, insane solos, clean vocals for the most part and overall a very perfect sound, one of the few good bands around these days, the album deserves top1!

How is a thousand suns higher than this. It may be my third favorite but its still my least favorite LP album ( I still like it just hate pop which is a little bit of that albumand has no guitars) but anyways nightmare save me and so far away are outstanding tracks. R.I.P. the rev

As much as I love Linkin Park, this is way better. Even though ATS had the Catalyst, this has Nightmare, Welcome to the Family, God Hates Us, So Far Away, Fiction, and Natural Born Killer. FoREVer!

Sigh No More - Mumford And Sons Sigh No More - Mumford And Sons Product Image

This has to be number one Mumford and Sons is one the best rock/folk bands ever! I like linkin park but Mumford and Sons are so much better than Avenged Sevenfold and Linkin Park.

Best album ever created, by the best band ever formed. They bring a new twist on folk. With beautiful lyrics with such meaning, how can this album not be number 1?
