    Well IMO the best album of 2003 is Dream Theater's Train of Thought. I also really liked A Perfect Circle's The Thirteenth Step. Can't tell you any others off the top of my head.:D
  3. The Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium
    Hands down, the best album I've heard this year, probably more than that.A++++++++++++

    Another vote for Mars Volta. I haven't heard anything that good in a long time.

    Edit: I'd also like to add Normal Like You's "Your Reminder" CD/Demo/whatever. Even though I'm sure almost none of you guys have heard it, it's amazing. If you ever get the chance to see them and like punk/emo/screamo/"riffage", check them out.

  9. couldn't have said it better myself. i honestly CANNOT stop listening to this cd.
  10. Five good albums, some of them Swedish, in no particular order:

    Yo La Tengo: "Summer Sun" - I'm looking forward to heaing their recently released "Today is the Day" as well...

    Britta Phillips & Dean Wareham: "L'Avventura" - much better than the latest Luna record, if you ask me.

    Cat Power: "You Are Free"

    Komeda: "Kokomemedada"

    Broder Daniel: "Cruel Town"
  11. another vote for the mars volta, its just so great. end of story

    I really like Radiohead's "Hail to the thief", Cursive's "the ugly organ", the Coheed & Cambria album and the A Perfect Circle album as well.

    Metallica: St. Anger
  20. To represent the hip-hop section of the music world a bit:

    Atmosphere: Seven's Travels
    Aesop Rock: Labor Days

    The rest:

    Lungfish: Love is Love
    Against Me: Reinventing Axl Rose (technically 2002...but it's close enough)
    Ted Leo and the Pharmacists: Hearts of Oak
    The Slackers: Close My Eyes (A damn solid album)

    And another vote for Mars Volta,
