These are my all time favorite albums to listen to.
1. Dream Theater - Octavarium - the entire album was put together to make you think. It's really a fascinating album.
2. Blink-182 - blink-182 - 2 of my top 3 favorite songs of all time are on this album. The band did not disappoint.
3. Sum 41 - Does This Look Infected? - every song on this album is fantastic and I really wish they stuck to the same sound for the newer albums, although they're always great.
4. Incubus - S.C.I.E.N.C.E - Picked this up at the library on a whim. Best choice of my life. I now have the entire collection and this is still my favorite. The album itself is riddled with turntable scratches and sound clips that all just fit with the music somehow.
5. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2 - Scenes From a Memory - Dream Theater has 2 albums on this list, they are the best group of players I've ever head in my life.
6. Incubus - Light Grenades - Light Grenades was the first album I got by Incubus, and, although topped by S.C.I.E.N.C.E., is one of the band's greatest achievements. I really only got this because I knew the song Anna Molly, but have since grown to love each song on the album.
7. Foo Fighters - Wasting Light - The album is near flawless. I don't need to say anything else.
8. Green Day - Dookie - I love almost every song on this album. Green Day was one of my biggest inspirations as a player, mainly the reason I started playing in the first place.
9. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik - This is probably the catchiest album I've heard, and Fruciante is unbeatable. They aren't the same with Klinghoffer.
10. Anubis Gate - Andromeda Unchained - Got this because someone told me to, knowing I liked Dream Theater. I loved the album as soon as "Snowbound" hit and have listened to the entire album several times over.
