Best Architects (UK) Albums

The Top Ten
1 All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us

This album is one of the best albums that I've heard in my entire life. The lyrics are the best of the band. When you listen to the album, you can feel all the emotions: the rage, pain, sadness, and impotence against the world, life, and the imminent death of Tom that year.

All the songs are simply great. "Nihilist," "A Match Made In Heaven," and "Phantom Fear" are very powerful songs. "All Love Is Lost" and "The Empty Hourglass," which introduce some new sounds implemented by the band, are calm songs but still have a lot of force.

"Deathwish" and "Downfall" feature some of the best breakdowns of the album and maintain excellent vocals throughout. "Gravity" and "From The Wilderness" offer some of the best lyrics in the album. The changes in rhythm are simply awesome.

"Gone With The Wind" is one of the most personal songs that Architects have ever made. This song conveys the sadness and impotence the band felt due to Tom's cancer. It has the best breakdown of the album, and the clean vocals contribute significantly.

Finally, "Memento Mori" is one of the best songs I've ever heard. It gathers all the elements of the album: the lyrics are the best in the album, the changes in rhythm are exceptional, it starts with a peaceful and depressive atmosphere, and ends with a lot of force and the acceptance of Tom's fate. In my personal opinion, this is my favorite song of the band, and I consider it their best.

2 Holy Hell

An incredible album. Mind-blowing and perfection from start to finish.

Brilliant album, love the Doomsday track.

Definitely the best album, right behind "All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us."

3 Lost Forever // Lost Together

The latest album by Architects. The first half of the album is perfect, but after that, it gets a bit boring. However, there are some decent parts of songs after this, for example, the introductory riff on C.A.N.C.E.R.

4 Hollow Crown

The heaviest album yet. It still manages to be melodic and catchy. The best songs are Early Grave, Dethroned, In Elegance, and Hollow Crown.

This album is the best Architects album by far, with great vocals and guitar. So much angry energy makes this a fun and full-on experience.

5 Daybreaker

A very good release by the band with a powerful beginning with The Bitter End and Alpha Omega. It ends amazingly with Unbeliever.

Seriously? Lower than The Here and Now and All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us? Easily their best effort...

This album should not be under The Here and Now. What guys? Alpha Omega? These Colours Don't Run? Even if you win, you're still a rat? Devil's Island? Please...

6 The Here and Now

The catchiest album by the band. Nearly all of the tracks are perfect. The last track, Year In Year Out/Up And Away, features Greg from The Dillinger Escape Plan, and it's a great end to a great album. Very underrated.

Criminally underrated. One I keep coming back to.

Architects experimenting with catchier tunes, the band at their best.

7 For Those that Wish to Exist
8 Ruin

The first album to feature Sam Carter on vocals. A good album, it features the songs Buried at Sea and Always.

9 Nightmares

Either this album or Ruin is the most technical album. This is the only album not to feature Sam Carter on vocals. The best songs on this album for me are To The Death, The Darkest Tomb, and In The Desert.
