I also didn't think you were picking on disturbed when you said nu metal... Oh well. Hard ruck mixed with industrial isn't metal to me, but eh, whatever brah..
Here's something that will piss you off, i also think that Semisonic's Feeling strangely fine is a little timeless. If you ignore that the fact its the album with closing time on it, the rest of it is really good, if you're into that type of lighter alt rock.

Some of mine are favorites, some I just like. To me they are timeless as they sound as fresh to me as if they are new. For instance, I'd list Judas Priest's Screaming For Vengence if it was a classic album thread, but to me it sounds 80's. Not in a bad way, but dated and not timeless. I could include America's Homecoming if I was listing favorites, but it is very 70's dated and not timeless.
Metal - guitar lead rock
Hard rock - drum and bass lead
Now which is disturbed? hard, not metal. Get ur head outta your ass.
Saying that there is music that can't be pinned to an era or decade, or whatever, doesn't make it great, or timeless..
All it does is show that you don't know squat about music history.
I'm gonna unsub from this thread now, if all the music forum is as unwilling to hear others opinions on music, its not a place for me.
BTW, great lists evryone. Seems like people here know good Music when they hear it.
Timeless is something that, to you, is exactly that. It's completely based upon your opinion and perception of the album. A lot of you have posted things that I would agree with, and some things I thought were junk when released, and still junk now. But, like I said before, is merely my opinion and perception.
No one in the world can put a definition and guideline to what makes an album timeless to someone. The only definition should be towards the word timeless, and that being an album that you loved the day it came out, and can still put it on and feel that same emotion you did the first day you heard it.
So, let's get back to posting those albums, and stop being purists to your lists.
