These are my favorite albums, in no particular order…
My Winter Storm by Tarja
Tarja used to sing with Nightwish, but has recently gone solo. She has one of the greatest female voices that I’ve ever heard.
Beautiful Death by Bella Morte
This is still one of the best albums I’ve heard in the past 10 years or so.
Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys by My Chemical Romace
I was pleasantly surprised by this new album from MCR. I didn’t think it would be possible to live up to The Black Parade, but they did.
Kein Schwein Ruft Mich An by Palast Orchester mit Max Raabe
This is some great 20s/30s era German music. It’s very upbeat and probably humorous (I don’t understand German).
King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime by Faith No More
This is one of the most underrated, overlooked albums of the 90s. This is Faith No More at their best, in my opinion.
The Order of the Reptile by Ego Likeness
I saw Ego Likeness when they opened up for The Cruxshadows. It’s some good, hard-hitting electronic/industrial/dance music.
