Comparatively speaking, this list is about the same quality-wise as last year's, but a step below 2003 and several steps below 2001, still by far the best year of the new millennium.

Opeth does it again -- they are practically unstoppable at this stage of their career. The BNR prediction for top album, Judas Priest's Angel Of Retribution, does make a solid showing. Note: due to an unfortunate error in the early version of the voting page, both of System Of A Down's albums were counted as one. Thus, the position of Mezmerize is not accurate with respect to the other albums. In time, this may be corrected. Still, an interesting year for metal.
