Best Fifth Studio Albums from a Rock Band

Thanks for the idea, Castlevania! I know what you're all thinking, I'm ripping him off. Well, you're right.

The Top Ten

1 Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory - Dream Theater

No competition, greatest album ever made. - Songsta41

2 Metallica - Metallica
3 Powerslave - Iron Maiden
4 Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth

This should be higher than the black album

5 Close to the Edge - Yes

Has their greatest song and two other great ones. - Songsta41

6 Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin

Ahh, I love this album! - MontyPython

7 A Farewell to Kings - Rush
8 Something Wicked This Way Comes - Iced Earth

Great songs - Melancholy (Holy Martyr), The Coming Curse, Watching Over Me, 1776. - Metal_Treasure

9 Imaginations from the Other Side - Blind Guardian
10 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

The Contenders

11 Difficult to Cure - Rainbow

I Surrender, Difficult to Cure, Midtown Tunnel Vision, Spotlight Kid - Metal_Treasure

12 Saints & Sinners - Whitesnake
13 Unia - Sonata Arctica
14 Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers
15 Larks Tongues In Aspic - King Crimson

My favourite album by the band. Fantastic instrumentation interlaced with beautiful sound and quality. - IronSabbathPriest

16 Morningrise - Opeth

This was their second

17 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

This was their seventh. - ParasN2000

18 Help! - The Beatles
19 The Resistance - Muse
20 Let There Be Rock - AC/DC
21 Blackwater Park - Opeth

Morningrise isn't their fifth. In fact it's their second. This legendary album though, is one of the greatest of all time. Having Steven Wilson as producer helps, although every album previous was awesome. - IronSabbathPriest

22 Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs - Ministry
23 Amnesiac - Radiohead
24 Living Things - Linkin Park
25 Nimrod - Green Day
26 .5: The Gray Chapter - Slipknot
27 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath
28 Yield - Pearl Jam
29 A Day at the Races - Queen
30 Selling England by the Pound - Genesis

Overall, a really solid album. You've got stuff like Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, The Cinema Show, and especially Firth of Fifth. - Gg2000

31 Document - R.E.M.

Their last album with IRS Records, and the beginning of their "golden age". - Gg2000

32 The Notorious Byrd Brothers - The Byrds

The Byrds at their most experimental. The songs on the album are mixtures of folk, country, and psychedelia, often mixing multiple genres in the same song. - Gg2000
