Best Rock Albums of 2010

The Top Ten
1 A Thousand Suns- Linkin Park

Whatever they do to their style, it's like they know what the mind needs while it feeds on music. Not my favorite, but still sounds really good. Loved Nightmare too.

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 different from their previous nu-metal genre and has done well!

2 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Add up all the emotion from all the other albums listed, and you still 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 resilience 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 successful music and somehow a pop sound is top1 and Nightmare is just top5? No way, this album shows good metal is still done, with 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!

3 Diamond Eyes - Deftones
4 Asylum - Disturbed
5 Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys - My Chemical Romance

How the hell is Mumford and Sons above My Chemical Romance? What has the world come to, jeez. Fair enough, they're awesome, but not as awesome as the Fabulous Killjoys! For the win!

Killjoys, make some noise!

I love this album!

6 Le Noise - Neil Young
7 Plead the Fifth - Taproot
8 Fever - Bullet for My Valentine

Should be in the top ten. The guitars, drums played are really amazing!

9 Korn III: Remember Who You Are - Korn
10 No Apologies - Trapt
The Contenders
11 High Violet - The National
12 Monsters - D'espairsray
13 All American Nightmare - Hinder

There are damn amazing songs in there. Not an album with a theme and all, but musically far better than A Thousand Suns. Come on, people, are you done overrating LP and underrating Hinder? GET OVER IT.

14 Imperfect Harmonies - Serj Tankian
15 The Oracle - Godsmack
16 Time for Annihilation - Papa Roach

1. Burn
2. One Track Mind
3. Kick in the Teeth
4. No Matter What
5. The Enemy

Five awesome tracks. Still, this album is not on top!

17 Majesty Shredding - Superchunk
18 Dance & Scream - Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas
19 Sigh No More - Mumford And Sons

This has to be number one. Mumford and Sons is one of 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?

20 Audio Secrecy - Stone Sour
21 The Final Frontier - Iron Maiden

Really? The Final Frontier at 11th? All hope in humanity lost!

It deserves to be No. 1!

22 Death to Analog - Julien-K
23 For We Are Many - All That Remains
24 Contra - Vampire Weekend
25 Lungs - Florence The Machine

I love that album! Drumming Song, Blinding, Cosmic Love, Rabbit Heart, You've Got the Love, Dog Days Are Over... Amazing songs!
