Top 10 Rock and Metal Albums of 2007


The Top Ten

1 Colors - Between the Buried and Me

It's very much a true metal symphony. The way it is structured and progresses is similar to that of a classical symphony. One entire song but broken into different sections. With loads of good moments, it's one of my favorite albums. - cjWriter1997

Basically the Extreme Metal version of Dark Side of the Moon - christangrant

Nice to see this here. The beginning of a new era for BTBAM (I didn't enjoy the first three albums that much) and prog in general. - IronSabbathPriest

A album were all the songs are the bands best work even the bonus covers of Battery and Hallowed Be Thy Name are Awesome - christangrant
