Good Things Take Time

Essentially I composed this list as a note-to-self not to take my negative first impressions so seriously. Most of these tend to be works I initially rated a couple points (/10) lower, because the music didn't seem all that great to my ears. Again, most, tend to have increased value once I delved into the lyrics - sometimes entirely away from the music. Yeah... normally I couldn't care less whether you're singing about clown-phobias, alien invasions, SC battles, real war on Earth or alternative uses for vacuum cleaners. Oh, and on that note: Acid Reign (ensure Bandcamp-player is enabled in your user Settings) - is that another band's music entirely?

1. Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies
2. Anthrax - Stomp 442
3. Cathedral - Kingdom of Ends
4. Hypocrisy - Catch 22
5. Intruder - Psycho Savant

Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]

Bibliophilia: Metal For Bookworms

A list for us bookworms, nerds, geeks, etc. Books are brutal and totally fucking metal.
This list lists books, poems, comic books, non-fiction and even movie adaptions of said books in some cases referenced to in albums (whether by concept, individual song or title).
This list is old. I started this way before The Epics, but never finished it. It's obviously not finished, so feel free to request. Initially, I was decided whether I should include songs based on stories from the Bible, but I'm leaning towards it. So expect that in a bit.

1. Ahab - The Call Of The Wretched Sea
2. Anthrax - Among The Living
3. Anthrax - State Of Euphoria
4. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
5. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond

1. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced
2. Cream - Disraeli Gears
3. Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum
4. Iron Butterfly - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
5. Vanilla Fudge - Renaissance

The Epics (Because I Don't Think Pyramid God Is Coming Back)

My version of The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes) only this time it's more The Epics (Songs Over 10 Minutes) because we kept griping to PG and he wouldn't update his list. According to his profile he hasn't been on in... 371 days. So I thought "Hey, why not do it myself?"
Arranged by time. If you feel or know a song should be on here, let me know. I'm a mainstream fag, so I only listen to the popular stuff. I might have missed some bands.

1. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
4. Nile - Ithyphallic
5. Nightwish - Once

The Most Metal / Rock Albums With Impact On Me

Kinda saw another relative lists on here that state this, one bad and one inspirational, so thought I might do my own.

1. AC/DC - Back In Black
2. Accept - Stalingrad
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Amon Amarth - Versus The World
5. Anthrax - Spreading The Disease

Why These Are My Favourite Albums: Avant-80s Selections From Perfect Or Near-Perfect Works

Here they are, in order of year, and order of personal preference within each year. My utterly favourite songs from pre-1980 classics, rendered in my never-really-humble opinion, as everything should be.

Yes, that last bit may have been a touch of sarcasm. But this isn't. With few exceptions, every song on each album that made the list rocks - that's why I've rated them 9 or 10 - but these are my absolute favourites:

1. Deep Purple - Shades of Deep Purple
2. Neil Young - Neil Young
3. Jethro Tull - This Was
4. Cream - Wheels of Fire
5. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland
