20 May 2008, 16:19 by 6:00Simply my favourite albums of all time, regardless of genre. If I were on a sinking ship with these records, I’d likely drown trying to save them all. Comments are, of course, welcome.
100. King Crimson – Thrak – 1995
Artful, playful, dark and angular modern music from the kingpins of classic prog.
99. Fugazi – The Argument – 2001
The controlled fury of Fugazi’s classic hardcore attack meets the washed-out moody ambience of post-punk, with awesome results.
98. The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely – 2008
An instant, eclectic classic from can-do-no-wrong composer Jack White and Co.
97. Judas Priest – Unleashed In The East – 1979
The best live record of the 70’s, from one of metal’s all-time greatest innovators.
96. Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere – 1969
Young’s finest hour, this album is a repository for both his wildest studio jamming and some of his best songwriting ever.
95. Bruce Cockburn – Life Short Call Now – 2006
14 May 2008, 07:09 by 6:00Just a personal list of my current favourites. I made the list for personal reference, but I enjoy a good conversation so I'm also posting it here. Note the title: the albums needn't be metal so long as they are by a band that was at one point metal. Ulver is probably the best example here, as neither of their albums which made the list are metal in the slightest. Also, the only criterion of 'metalness' is my own personal opinion. So no, I shan't remove RATM unless I inexplicably stop liking them.
100. Pelican – The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw
99. Intestine Baalism – Banquet In The Darkness
98. Autopsy – Severed Survival
97. Celestial Season – Solar Lovers
96. Maudlin of the Well – Bath
95. Samael – Passage
94. Monster Magnet – Dopes to Infinity
93. Trouble – Psalm 9
92. Watchtower – Control And Resistance
91. Divine Regale – Ocean Mind
90. Neurosis – The Eye of Every Storm
89. Deep Purple – Purpendicular
88. The Axis of Perdition – Deleted Scenes from the Transition Hospital

6 Jan 2006, 20:37 by 6:00Since I've seen a few folken getting up to these, I'll toss out a list of my top twenty-five 'scrobbled artists, from July 21st on. Unfortunately bands like Heathen and Anacrusis who got INSANELY heavy play towards the beginning of the year get screwed, but that's the nature of the beast.
25. Paradise Lost: The UK's gloomy doomsters slid in just ahead of the crunch master's Corrosion of Conformity who had a late surge when I started listening to Wiseblood a lot, but PL held on due to many spins of Icon and One Second. These guys have a heavy Metallica circa-1990 influence as well as from old-school grinders like Saint Vitus, but their sound was absolutely groundbreakin in the early 90's... you know before they descended into gothic rock hell.
24. Pain of Salvation: These guys are overrated as all get-out musically, but from a conceptual standpoint... just wow. Daniel is some kind of genius, and when he has a way with words that never fails to surprise and awe me. …
