Its that time of year where I attempt to compile a list of the best albums of the year. It is always hard for me to rank albums, since I normally don't even get around to listening to them until a couple of months after they are released. So with that said I'll probably order them alphabetically. I'll include the number of plays courtesy of Last FM, as I'm more likely to have formed a definite opinion on something I've listened to a lot. I've tagged my friends that are most likely to be interested in good music.
Amorphis - The Beginning of Times - 8 plays
I'm still not sure what to think of this one. On first listen I really liked it, but now I'm not so sure. Maybe its because I'm distracted every time I listen to it, but none of the songs seem particularly memorable. Everyone is saying it is a step up from Skyforger, but I really liked that album, and it definitely doesn't compare to Silent Waters. I'll updte this if it grows on me - I have only heard it 8 times so far.

decided to make a list of 100 albums. Instead of calling them a must-listen (since I don't believe in musical objectivity), these are the albums that define me and my musical taste.
Both categories are in alphabetical order by groups.
The best (albums that stun me with their beauty, make me happy just because they are perfect and hypnotize me)
1. Megalazottak es megszomoritottak by After Crying
Hauntingly beautiful. Although fairly different from the rest of AC's discography, this is the one-of-two best albums.
2. Overground Music by After Crying
First AC album, much more progrockish than Megalazottak and equally good.
3. Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles
4. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles
5. White Album by The Beatles
While not a good three albums for an interesting top-list, Beatles are one of those classics I love.
6. Burn the Maps by The Frames
The very best album of Frames. Very powerful.
7. Franz Ferdinand by Franz Ferdinand
