I'm not sure about anything from 2008 yet, though Viva la Vida and Dig Lazarus Dig are big contenders.

Kanye West – Late Registration
Ryan Adams and the Cardinals – Cold Roses
The Tossers – The Valley of the Shadow of Death
My Chemical Romance – The Black Parade
Pearl Jam – Pearl Jam
Scissor Sisters – Ta-Dah!
Dropkick Murphys – The Meanest of Times


Honorable Mentions -
Tom Waits - Orphans (I didn't put it up there as it's a box set)
Jimmy Eat World - Futures
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
Outkast - Speakerboxxx/Love Below
Silverchair - Diorama, Young Modern

See LM, I knew you'd be able to easily come up with 20!

Are Killers and Green Day in your honorable mentions instead of the main list because they are guilty pleasures??

No, the Killers album is there because it's inconsistent, but its best songs are awesome, and the Green Day album has sort of lost its appeal for me after so many plays. It's still good though, very accomplished, and easily the best thing Green Day has ever done.

I fucking love Hot Fuss... I still do! I prefer that whole dance club rock vibe to their next one Sam's Town. And Brandon's way of singing on HF suits him so much better, IMO than his over-ambitious borderline yelling on ST. Anyway, as for Green Day I agree wholeheartedly that American Idiot is their best album yet. But it's been so long since it came out, geez! Wonder what's cooking in their camp!

I can't stand Sam's Town...that was a real disappointment for me. Flowers' voice is just...gone. I have no idea what happened. Must have sold the ol' auto tune on ebay to stock up on fake mustaches.

Green Day is now working on a side project as this band called Foxboro Hot Tubs. Their album was released on May 20.

Holy shit! Why wasn't I told about this??? lol. So they're doing a side project under a completely different name? Interesting. This seems to have completely slipped under the hype radar. Either that or I've been living under a rock.
