LET THE COUNTDOWN COMMENCE!

50.Crowbar-Sever The Wicked Hand


Pretty damn fine comeback album for Crowbar. Kirk Windstien can still churn out plenty of headbang-worthy riffs (that was kind of obivious considering how much of a legend he is and his recent work with Kingdom Of Sorrow). The one thing that prevents this album from being higher up is Windstien's vocals. It's surprising considering how much I love sludge, but I don't really like his vocals. He doesn't sound any worse than on past records, it's just a personal taste gripe. Still, this is a solid release that any classic sludge fan should enjoy.
Standout Tracks
1.The Cemetery Angels
2.As I Become One
3.Protectors of the Shrine


49.Touche Amore-Parting The Seas Between Brightness and Me


Screamo isn't a genre I normally enjoy, but Touche Amore is too damn good at it to be ignored. This is definitely a more catchy record than their debut, but it maintains the raw, real emotion that makes Touche Amore a standout of the genre.
Standout Tracks
1.Method Act
2.Wants/Needs
3.Art Offical

These albums fall into my category of "Albums I didn't have to listen to to know that they are shit".

A few of them (Emmure, Limp Bizkit, Five Finger Death Punch) I listened to as a joke. I listened to Lulu just to see how bad it actually was.

Crowbar didn't make it to my top 25 but personally I think they should be significantly higher than 50 too.
