My Favorite Albums of all Time

Trent Schoenborn "exb756"
The list author says: "Best albums ever...bias on my part, but its my fave albums list, so it doesn't really matter."
Ride the Lightning
Ride the Lightning
"In a world of light, sing-songy pop music from artists like Justin Bieber(god help us) and Lady Gaga, Ride the Lightning is the perfect antidote: heavy, powerful guitar riffs, machine-gun drums, dark and violent songs, and the most awesome album cover ever. Standout tracks: "Fade to Black" and "Ride the Lightning.""
Highway to Hell
Highway to Hell
"AC/DC...classics living to this day. Highway to Hell? One of the best rock albums, no question. Unfortunately I'd have to put Metallica before them, but they're a close second."
The Marshall Mathers LP
The Marshall Mathers LP
"Eminem's best rap album to date; the Marshall Mathers LP unleashes all the hatred, anger, and violence that Eminem has, and the songs are fantastic--not to mention the constant coarse language, that's a plus."
...And Justice For All
...And Justice For All
"The standout reason for putting this album in is the dark, disturbing single "One", about a soldier blown to pieces in war. The brutality of it brings war to life, in a graphic manner."
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
"I have a thing against Kanye West--its the Taylor Swift thing. But his album is fantastic--if not for the Swiftgate, he'd be No. 2 just below Ride the Lightning. Standout here: "Monster", with fantastic verses by Kanye, Jay-Z, and Nicki Minaj."
Pyromania
Pyromania
"Def Leppard is another classic rock band. Although my love for them has faltered over the years, I still can listen to the hit singles they created many years ago. If only they'd stop now, before they sink too low."
Blueprint 3
Blueprint 3
"He's black. That's the first awesome thing about him. Second of all, Jay-Z knows how to rap--he may not have the powerful talent of Eminem, but his songs are always full of great beats, including the standout "Empire State of Mind"."
Hell: The Sequel [EP][Explicit Deluxe]
Hell: The Sequel [EP][Explicit Deluxe]
"Two songs here stand out in particular: the heavy "Echo", and the fast-rapping "Fast Lane". Plus, a reference about anal sex with Nicki Minaj; Eminem and Royce da 5'9 are the perfect bad and evil duo."
Metallica
Metallica
"I put this track lower because some of the songs on here are not too fabulous; but they are put to rest by thrash hits like "Enter Sandman" and powerful, heavy songs like "Sad but True"."
Graduation
Graduation
"I like Kanye West. Graduation had what "808's and Heartbreak" did not: strong beats and cool raps by Kanye and a few choice guest stars. It's better than Heartbreak, but not as good as Fantasy, just inbetween the two."
Recovery [Explicit]
Recovery [Explicit]
"Screw the critics: Recovery is actually a pretty sweet album. "Not Afraid" is the standout hit, in which Eminem offers help to those who need it, as well as the violent, heavy song "Space Bound"."
Back in Black
Back in Black
"This goes lower because the only track I like on it is the awesome anthem "Back in Black", considered AC/DC's finest. Which it is, with "Highway to Hell" and "For Those About to Rock" close behind it."
Chronic 2001
Chronic 2001
"Dr. Dre has been with Eminem forever; but he is a great stand-alone rapper. He does well on his own, with the biggest hit from 2001 being "Forgot about Dre", a collaboration with Eminem himself."
Rolling Papers
Rolling Papers
"For one, I love this one for the album's title itself, the marijuana reference. And two, "Roll Up" is the standout song here; and again, its about marijuana. Leave it to Wizzy."
The Eminem Show
The Eminem Show
"Personally, I just don't like this as much as Recovery or Marshall Mathers; however, it does rank up here, simply because its Eminem, and Eminem is awesome. Standout: Cleanin out My Closet."
2ne1
2ne1
"2NE1 is not the best; they are second lowest, only ahead of "Master of Puppets". However, their songs are heavy on the hip-hop and light on the dark songs that Eminem and Metallica have, giving balance to my music."
Master of Puppets
Master of Puppets
"I'd have to put this at last of my fave albums because I only care for one song on here: the heavy riff on "Master of Puppets". Awesome song, but not so awesome of an album."
