Master Exploder
2010 rounds out the end of another decade, something we don't see that often, so lets think about the best albums from the last ten years! What are your favs or those you think are the best?

Here are mine from the top of my head.

1. Iron Maiden - A Matter Of Life And Death
2. Cradle Of Filth - Nymphetamine
3. Dream Theater - Train Of Thought
4. Mastodon - Crack The Skye
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World
6. Katatonia - Last Fair Deal Gone Down
7. Dark Tranquillity - Damage Done
8. Muse - Black Holes And Revelations
9. Within Temptation - The Silent Force
10. System of a Down - Toxcity

Here are some honerable mentions, albums I really enjoyed and think are worthy of the top ten, if only there was more room.

Kreator - Enemy Of God
Samael - Solar Soul
Blaze Bayley - The Man Who Would Not Die
Guns N Roses - Chinese Democracy
Scars on Broadway - s/t
