It’s hard to imagine having more fun with a metal album than with Meliora.

Overall, Luminiferous is simply the best team in the league doing what they do best. In most cases, that’s winning, but in this case, that’s producing some of the finest metal on the planet.

Sol Invictus probably isn’t going to top Angel Dust or The Real Thing on most fans’ lists of favorite Faith No More albums, but it’s a step up from Album of the Year and holds its own with the strong but slightly bloated King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime record.

1. Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls

They did push themselves like they’ve never done before, and they’ve rewarded their millions of worldwide fans with a late-career zenith.
