The Top Ten

1 Accelerated Evolution - Devin Townsend

Deadhead, Suicide, Storm and Away are some of the best things he written. This is probably my favorite album the guy has worked on ever. It's just the right amount of atmosphere, emotion and heaviness. - cjWriter1997

2 City - Strapping Young Lad

The most chaotic and anger-filled metal album I have heard. It's one of the heaviest metal records recorded and it's absolutely awesome - cjWriter1997

3 Ocean Machine: Biomech - Devin Townsend

Devin Townsend released two amazing albums in 1997 one with his solo project the other with SYL - cjWriter1997

4 Alien - Strapping Young Lad

The second best Strapping Young Lad album in my opinion. It has one of the band's most well known songs as well as one of their heaviest. - cjWriter1997

5 Ziltoid the Omniscient - Devin Townsend

Devin goes more for a comedy route here and it absolutely works. This album still has some genuine songs like Hyperdrive. - cjWriter1997

6 Epicloud - Devin Townsend Project

The title says it all. This album is epic! - cjWriter1997

7 The New Black - Strapping Young Lad

The last Strapping Young Lad album and a very good one at that. - cjWriter1997

8 Deconstruction - Devin Townsend Project

Devin Townsend still has that anger from his Strapping Young Lad days in him as this has some pretty SYL-like songs in it - cjWriter1997

9 Strapping Young Lad - Strapping Young Lad

The third Strapping Young Lad album may not be the band's greatest but it's still pretty good overall. - cjWriter1997

10 Addicted - Devin Townsend Project

This is one of his more well known solo albums, it's pretty good but I prefer most of his other works. - cjWriter1997
