Its that thread again, The year is pretty much over. And since Chinese Democracy finally was released, I figure now is a good time to ask.

What are your favorite albums of the year.

Number one for me is hands down, Trivium's "Shogun", then in no order:

Light This City - Stormchaser
After The Burial - Rareform
Between The Buried And Me - Colors Live
Becoming The Archetype - Dichotomy
Evergrey - Torn
Opeth - Watershed
Judas Priest - Nostradamus

Specifically Stormchaser and Dichotomy, Those albums are just stunning.


Fantastic year I think for music, So what are your picks?

Hmmm I have a few favourites

Radiohead - In Rainbows
Black Stone Cherry - Folklore and Superstitions
Buckcherry - Black Butterfly
Metallica - Death Magnetic
ACDC - Black Ice
Coldplay... yes that's right I said Coldplay smile.gif - Viva La Vida
Oasis... again yes I said Oasis smile.gif - Dig Out Your Soul
Theory of a Deadman - Scars and Souvenirs

A couple of days ago I wouldn't have said so, however Chinese Democracy is growing on me. I don't know what I didn't like about it when I first heard it but after quite a few listens it is quite a refreshing listen. I'll admit it, Axl managed to pull it off.

Nope. It's bloody awful. It's just dull same old arse. I loved Opeth way back. How times have changed. Way back when the first 2 albums came out and the 2 after I was a massive fan. Thank god I saw them back then. I saw them at Bloodstock this year and they were dreadful.

I actually just had a ticket for Opeth in Nottingham and I went in and saw Cynic and left before Opeth came on laugh.gif I'd rather watch Madonna tongue.gif

since were naming out worst album's of 08, heres my pic.



What a god awful release. One could not imagine why Exodus would remake an album, and there best one I might add. What got me more confused is how the hell did they manage to make the songs into groove oriented rather than thrash. It was a classic for a reason Exodus. Oh yeah, whats up with that sh**y album art. Stick to the classics kids smile.gif
