Best 5 albums

Metallica - "Death Magnetic"
"Welcome back, Metallica!!" This word best describes the album.
The Futureheads - "This Is Not The World"
This Killing Joke produced album was surprisingly clear & loud sound.
Nine Inch Nails - "The Slip"
I was really excited again of the non-stop, unforeseeable way the album rolled out.

The studio live DVD was brilliant as well. Especially the preciseness of the drummer Josh Freese's hi-hat performance was incredible.

Hope he would play again with DEVO.

CSS - "Donkey"
In a way, this album is an extension of the previous album, but is broadening much sophisticated unique interpretations which was brilliant.

It may have transcended the original Tom Tom Club.

We Are the Physics - "We Are the Physics"
Marriage between Devo and Polysics. Result: We Are the Physics!!!!

Worst Album

Ministry - "Cover Up"
Was happy in knowing of the new album release, but the selections of the covers were slightly old fashioned, and the "peaceful feel" that loomed over the album was horrible...
