The Top Ten

1 ...And Justice for All - Metallica

Originally released on one vinyl disc, the album was quickly re-released as a double album without additional tracks. - Metal_Treasure

2 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater
3 Live After Death - Iron Maiden

Maybe my favorite Maiden album. That's called musicianship. The live version of Hallowed Be Thy Name is even better than the original, in my opinion. Phantom of the Opera is also better on the live album. - Metal_Treasure

4 Live - Blind Guardian

Same like Iron Maiden - they are very good live and some of their live performances are even better than the studio versions (Banish From Sanctuary, Valhalla). - Metal_Treasure

5 The Book of Souls - Iron Maiden
6 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica
7 The Astonishing - Dream Theater
8 Alpha Noir / Omega White - Moonspell

Alpha Noir is heavier (death metal) - ex. Lickanthrope, Em Nome do Medo ("In the Name of Fear")
Omega White is softer (gothic metal) - ex. Whiteomega, White Skies, A Greater Darkness - Metal_Treasure

9 The Living Infinite - Soilwork
10 Hammerheart - Bathory

The Contenders

11 Metallica (Black Album) - Metallica
12 Tribute - Ozzy Osbourne

Live album. - Metal_Treasure

13 Blood on Ice - Bathory
14 Live Evil - Black Sabbath
15 Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin
16 Mesmerize / Hypnotize - System of a Down
17 The Fragile - Nine Inch Nails

@visitor - I agree it's not metal and I always say this band isn't metal in general. But many metalheads believe they are metal and I added it to avoid questions /comments like: "Where is The Fragile? " This is the reason I have put it at #10 and not higher. - Metal_Treasure

This isn't metal. The Wikipedia page says it's industrial rock/art rock.

18 Tokyo Tapes - Scorpions
