5. Cobalt - Gin
4. Queensryche - American Soldier
3. Mastodon - Crack the Skye
2. Dream Theater - Black Clouds and Silver Linings
original review of this album, I said "As mentioned, the last Dream Theater album topped my list of best albums for that year. I can't imagine an album knocking this one off the number one spot." Well, I was wrong. This is still one of my favorite albums of all time, and the best album from my favorite band, but one release this year managed to pull off a major upset...
1. Living Colour - The Chair in the Doorway
