    I clearly went this a super basic fav five this time around. Only one of mine that already appeared was the Lauryn Hill Unplugged album which was my number five. Honestly kind of surprised I was the only to vote for that one too.

    Those great Albums that finished just outside the Top 5:


    Turn On the Bright Lights - Interpol - 60 Points (Fuji Vice #2, Wolf Beast #4)


    Spoiler:




    The Eminem Show - Eminem - 60 Points (Jimmy King #1, Wolf Beast #5)


    Spoiler:




    A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay - 70 Points (The EC #2, Wolf Beast #3)


    Spoiler:




    Drunken Lullabies - Flogging Molly - 70 Points (Baloocha #1, Fuji Vice #4)


    Spoiler:




    Saturate - Breaking Benjamin - 70 Points (Postman Dave #2, Jimmy King #3)


    Spoiler:




    Songs About Jane - Maroon 5 - 70 Points (Silk #2, Postman Dave #3)


    Spoiler:




    Wonder What's Next - Chevelle - 80 Points (Silk #3, Styles of Punk #3, Jimmy King #4)


    Spoiler:



    The last group before the top 5, nothing made my list. I'm glad Dave King found something successful after Fastway.

    Eminem was the only one that I even considered it’s a pretty great album

    A Rush of Blood To The Head was a late cut for me. A reminder of the time when Coldplay were actually good as opposed to everything since X&Y.

    This was such a good year. The Eminem show is also excellent.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 2002

    Eminem Show and Rush of Blood were both on my shortlist. Eminem Show is my favorite Em album, just a hair above MMLP on the strength of a little more polish and some new themes I quite like. Rush of Blood to the Head is classic Coldplay before they lost their way, though I like their first one a hair more.

    Saturate is a decent little hard rock record, not one I go back to much. While I do have a soft spot for Breaking Ben still, I prefer their next two albums quite a bit more.

    As for my contributions, Chevelle is an outstanding and consistent band and Wonder What's Next is kind of the one that started it all. Again, not my favorite of theirs, but definitely one I spin a lot.

    Songs About Jane is one of my favorite albums of all time and I loathe Adam Levine more and more every day for straying away from that sound in favor of listless and safe cheese pop. Every song on Songs About Jane is better than every song that came after that record. One of the great one album wonders.

    I listened to that song and it definitely sounded familiar, I dug it.

    As for this latest batch, Eminem Show is my favorite Eminem album. I know most Eminem fans go with MMLP as their favorite, and while I do like that one a lot (my second favorite from him), I just enjoy Eminem Show more overall. It’s still something I listen to when I’m feeling nostalgic.

    That Breaking Benjamin album is my favorite from them, Polyamorous is a great song imo. Chevelle’s album up there is my favorite from them, I liked their later work after it but this one will always have a special place for me. I first discovered Chevelle on a local rock station and fell in love with their stuff.

    Jimmy and Fract rock.

    Won't disagree that the next two (arguably 3) BB albums are stronger, but I was a big fan back in the day. Loads of underrated tracks on Saturate.

    Also agree that this possibly Maroon 5's strongest, maybe Overexposed challenges it though.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 2002

    Today is the Top 5:


    Tied for 5th Place: Audioslave - Audioslave - 90 Points (Mikk #1, The EC #3, Silk #5)



    Spoiler:






    Tied for 5th Place: Believe - Disturbed - 90 Points (Styles of Punk #1, Jimmy King #2)



    Spoiler:






    4th Place: Tell All Your Friends - Taking Back Sunday - 100 Points (Silk #1, The EC #1)



    Spoiler:






    3rd Place: By The Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers - 110 Points (Shock #2, Wolf Beast #2, Mikk #3)



    Spoiler:






    2nd Place: American IV: The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash - 120 Points (Creeping Death #1, Wolf Beast #1, Mikk #4)



    Spoiler:






    1st Place: Songs For the Deaf - Queens of the Stone Age - 140 (King Steventon #1, Mister Miracle #1, Shock #4, The EC #4)


    Spoiler:








    Big Guns in the Top 5 and very deservedly. I thought Audioslave was a great project and they produced some good stuff. I completely dismissed Disturbed when they came out, but they are better they I thought. I only know the name Taking Back Sunday and not much else. I like RHCP, but not full blown love. I do enjoy By The Way, love John Frusciante as a musician. I love some of the songs on American IV, but not as a whole. I'm a gigantic fan of Homme and QOTSA, the entire album concept of Deaf is fantastic.

    Had I remembered to vote, By the Way and Believe would of been my #1 and #2, but I likely would of voted for songs for the deaf too somewhere so it wouldn't of changed much.

    Disturbed peaked with Believe, I think that's their best work start to finish.

    QOTSA Wouldn've been number 6 for me.

    Pleased to have 3 out of my 5 in the top 5.

    I almost put the Johnny Cash album on my list but honestly I didn't like it as much as the Mark Chestnut Album.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 2002

    Thoughts, feelings, concerns.

    Think I said previously that I'd vote for pretty much any Cornell project and that continues to apply to Audioslave. I also love Rage so this project was a real best of both worlds for me, giving Chris Cornell just crunchy, delicious riffs to play off of, while also surprising me with some big-time ballads like "I Am The Highway" and "Like a Stone." Excellent first record and they'd put out two more very good ones.

    Believe is the best Disturbed record and it's not even close. Compromising some of the audacious nu-metal of their debut for a bit more melody was a big move that might have threatened to run off their fanbase, but that style was already on the way out so it was smart to bank on stuff like "Remember" (one of their best songs) and "Prayer" to keep their legacy afloat. Going forward they'd polish their sound a bit more for Ten Thousand Fists, and then make a career out of carbon copying that formula over each successive album.

    By The Way is a fun Chilis record and one of their last good ones (Stadium Arcadium was the grand finale). "This Is The Place" is actually maybe my favorite song of theirs, and the posted singles are obvious new classics.

    Songs For The Deaf was very very close to my list and I'm pleased to see it roll into the top spot. Pretty great record from start to finish that I was banking on some of you voting for in my stead. Well done.

    aaaand Tell All Your Friends is the beginning of a great career for one of my favorite pop punk bands of all time. The singles are jams and there's some exceptional deep cuts, one of my favorites being "Ghost Man On Third." Not my favorite TBS album but my love for them still landed them the narrow edge and the top spot here. Highly recommended for anyone who's a casual pop punk fan, though if you are you've probably already heard it.

    Solid job all around, this is a great top five.
