    Not sure I could give you ten, but my albums of the year are:

      Space Police / Defenders of the Crown - Edguy
      Redeemer of Souls - Judas Priest
      Can I count the new Blind Guardian yet? What I've heard so far is epic.

    All right, my list is basically finalized. There's a few albums I need to give more of a listen to (Dynazty, Saor, even Viathyn, for example), but the top 3 is pretty set in stone:


    1. Noble Beast - Noble Beast
    2. Falconer - Black Moon Rising
    3. Melodius Deite - Episode II: Voyage Through The Land of Fantasy
    4. Freedom Call - Beyond
    5. Eluveitie - Origins
    6. Twilight Force - Tales Of Ancient Prophecies
    7. Rainbowdragoneyes - The Secret Mirror
    8. Sabaton - Heroes
    9. Edguy - Space Police: Defenders of the Crown
    10. Hammerfall - (r)evolution

    Because there's no way I could decide what albums to pick for my top 10 list, I'm making separate lists for girlie music and the rest. :P

    TOP 10 GIRLIE ALBUMS OF 2014
    Delain - The Human Contradiction
    Triosphere - The Heart of the Matter
    Winter in Eden - Court of Conscience
    Epica - The Quantum Enigma
    Evenoire - Herons
    Within Temptation - Hydra
    Temperance - Temperance (newcomer of the year)
    Kingfisher Sky - Arms of Morpheus
    Lyriel - Skin and Bones
    Lykke Li - I Never Learn

    Delain is a hands down winner, the rest are in no particulate order. Had to leave many great albums off the list, so this has been one of the best years ever when it comes to new albums coming out.


    TOP 10 NON-GIRLIE ALBUMS OF 2014
    Antropomorphia - Rites ov Perversion
    Prostitute Disfigurement - From Crotch to Crown
    Just Before Dawn - The Aftermath
    Centinex - Redeeming Filth
    Primordial - Where Greater Men Have Fallen
    Hideous Divinity - Cobra Verde
    Sólstafir - Ótta
    Anaal Nathrakh - Desideratum
    Bloodbath - Grand Morbid Funeral
    Embryonic Devourment - Reptilian Agenda

    Same here, other than Antropomorphia being the best one on this list (but not as good as Delain), the rest are in no particular order.

    Since this is a Top 10 list and you don't specify albums or songs, I would like to do both :)

    TOP 10 ALBUMS
    Sonata Arctica - Pariah's Child
    An easy choice for #1. Album has my favourite song of 2014 (Blood). And several other great tracks - X Marks the Spot, What did you do in the war Dad?, Wolves Die Young, Cloud Factory. For me its the perfect blend of Sonata's serious side and their quirky, whacky side.

    Vanishing Point - Distant is the Sun
    My Aussie mates. What an album. Very close to #1. Not a bad song on it, sensational production, Silvio's voice is superb, Chris' guitar work is amazing. Have not stopped listening.

    Rounding out the Top 10 in no particular order:
    Epica - Quantum Enigma
    Freedom Call - Beyond
    Magnum - Escape from the Shadow Garden
    Edguy - Space Police
    Arch Enemy - War Eternal
    Amaranthe - Massive Addictive
    Xandria - Sacrificium
    Ten - Albion

    TOP 10 SONGS
    Blood - Sonata Arctica
    Let the River Run - Vanishing Point
    Dirty Pretty - In This Moment
    Love Tyger - Edguy
    Drop Dead Cynical - Amaranthe
    Whole World is Watching - Within Temptation
    Crying in the Rain - Magnum
    Beyond - Freedom Call
    Little Red Relish - Xandria
    The Essence of Silence - Epica

    I wanted to do a top 15, but the topic says "Top 10" so i'll follow the rules:

    1) Allegaeon - Elements of the Infinite
    2) Anaal Nathrakh - Desideratum
    3) Mastodon - Once More 'Round the Sun
    4) Alestorm - Sunset on the Golden Age
    5) Insomnium - Shadows Of The Dying Sun
    6) Babymetal - Babymetal
    7) Devin Townsend - Z2
    8) Revocation - Deathless
    9) Exmortus - Slave To the Sword
    10) Eluveitie - Origins

    I wanted to include Shrapnel and Iron Reagan, but they couldn't crack my top 10. And I haven't listened enough to some albums to include them, like the new Exodus, Machine Head, or The Contortionist

    re: epica - quantum enigma: it's so much better than all of their other albums I'm honestly wondering why people were into them for a decade at the start. It pretty clearly illustrates how their earlier stuff wasn't that great. They had a big image advantage to gain momentum, and are now finally backing it up with a consistently solid, world-class album. Glad to have it, finally.

    Wasn't a huge fan of anything this year, I'd rather listen to nightfall in middle-earth
