I'd say here I've had to make some of the more difficult choices so far. I try to look at the big picture and weigh the albums evenly against each other to produce a balanced selection overall. Otherwise I'd probably end up listing the whole Megadeth discography, a bunch of Tangerine Dream releases, Tom Waits albums and a select few others. That's what makes it all interesting to me, what if I couldn't have them all?
Anthrax - Among the Living
Anthrax hit it out of the park again. As good as their subsequent releases have been, it's hard to deny the band reached their peak already with their third album. If there's one Anthrax album you're going to check out, this is it. No question about it. And with that I have nothing much left to say. Best album, best songs.
Black Sabbath - The Eternal Idol
