Your personal top 10 vk albums

post em

These threads are a little boring, but this is one of those scenes where–despite there being an objective history/evolutionary branch–there’s no real concrete canon everybody can agree on. So it’s neat to see people’s top lists.
I’ll post mine later if this thread gets posts

I’m going to keep it 1 album per band lest the whole list becomes all of MM’s albums plus a few MdM and Közi solo ones, or just me doing a first to not first of Pura’s albums lol

Merveilles by Malice Mizer
Puppet Show by Plastic Tree
第5実験室 by cali≠gari
Niwlun by Guniw Tools
Image by Luna Sea
カタルシス by Közi
フィエルテの海と共に消ゆ~THE LAST OF ROMANCE~by LAREINE
Gauze by Dir en Grey
悪の華 by BUCK-TICK
Nocturnal Opera by Moi dix Mois

Just picking ten is so hard :persevere: I had to kick Jealousy by X off the list but they would normally be there otherwise

no order.

Moi dix Mois - Dixanadu
Hizaki Grace Project - Dignity Of Crest
DELUHI - Vandalism
Kisaki Project - 永遠の夢
CodeRebirth - Catharsis
New Sodmy - Confess To A Love
Dir en Grey - Dum Spiro Spero
12012 - 12012
The Gazette - Dogma
Deathgaze - Decade

the list above is based on my playing frequency of the album. man, it’s very difficult to choose only 10, I could easily do a top 50 album list, a top 100 single list, or a top 30 EP/mini-album list. in fact. anyway, 10 honorable mentions, could be added and as a top 20 list. also, no order.

lynch. - Gallows
D.I.D. - Paranoid Personality (5 types of a maxi-single with 16 tracks in total equals an album!)
-OZ- - Complete Best Album (very hard to pick a fav full-length, my fav tracks are all over the place lol)
xTRiPx - Any Verse
Gackt - Diablos
Delacroix - Re:do
NEGA - Vanitas
GHOSE - 契描
Nocturnal Bloodlust - Grimoire
Girugämesh - Monster

Nightmare - Anima

Since I have 5 honmei, 1 kamiban with a grand total of 13 albums (11 if Fate and Stardust aren’t dual counted), I’m only going to do 5.

  1. AIOLIN- Fate -Resistance Side-
  2. コドモドラゴン- テグラマグラ
  3. 零[Hz]- 零聖戦
  4. AIOLIN- Stardust Crystal -Stardust Side-
  5. コドモドラゴン - WOLFMAN

I feel the need to say that I don’t even dislike Alone, I just adore Voltage so much that Fate without Voltage is lonely to me.

AH this is so tough. This will be the albums that have a special meaning to me personally. So I have to say up front, the GazettE and Dir en Grey have been a huge part of my life. Also these will be in no particular order since that would add another dimension of impossibility.

the GazettE - Dim
the GazettE - Dogma
the GazettE - Ninth
Dir en Grey - Uroboros
Dir en Grey - Dum Spiro Spero
Dir en Grey - Arche
Lynch. - Gallows
-Oz- - Rouge
X Japan - Blue Blood
Luna Sea - Mother

Honorable mentions would be
Dir en Grey - Vulgar
the GazettE - Stacked Rubbish
Some of the early and late Girugamesh stuff, and definitely almost everything of Mucc.

I’m going to exclude DEG from this list because I could put all of their albums on it.
Mejibray- THE"420"THEATRICAL ROSES
Nega- Vanitas
The Black Swan- Ousia
ARTiCLEAR- Ikei no Musou
MUCC- Kowareta piano to living dead
Sukekiyo- Adoratio
Dimlim- Chedoara
Dadaroma- Stanczyk
the GazettE- Dogma
Madmans Esprit- Glorifying suicide
Some of the albums on my list are interchangeable with other albums from the same band. For example:
ARTICLEAR- 黎明期の夢
MUCC- Kuchiki no tou
Nega- Negativism-trace
Sukekiyo- Immortalis
the GazettE- Ninth
Madmans Esprit- Conscientization of Unconsciousness
Some honorable mentions:
Soko ni naru- Issen
Plastic tree- Puppet show
D.I.D- Providentia
Nocturnal Bloodlust- Grimoire
Nazare- Nemophila
