Our annual roundup of Top 10 lists has been posted, and as usual, it's a mixture of picks from staffers and artists. Three members of Dream Theater offered lists this year, and in case you don't want to dig through the site looking for them, here are some handy links.
Guitarist John Petrucci gave the nod to a wide variety of bands and artists, including labelmates Opeth, Trivium and Young the Giant, but also Adele, Bon Iver and comedy glam-rockers Steel Panther. See his list here.
Keyboardist Jordan Rudess favored Opeth's Heritage, as well, and also ranked discs by Devin Townsend, Beardfish and Black Country Communion. His list is here.
And finally, bassist John Myung gave the thumbs up to Opeth and Trivium as well, but also enjoyed the latest records by Megadeth, Radiohead and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Check out his list here.
