My favourite album would of been Symbolic, but that made my Death Metal list instead.

Great list! Nice to see Terminal Redux there too!
You should check out a relatively new thrash metal album: "Misleading Evil" by Hazzerd
It has great riffs and solos... and the drummer is the vocalist!

Terminal Redux is a very good album, it's very technical and progressive influenced, similar to TSOP in a lot of ways.

I will have to listen to Hazzerd, it's unusual to have a drummer as the lead vocalist, it's very hard to be able to do both at the same time, which is proberbly why you don't get many bands who do that.

I just recently discovered Metal Church - that album was pretty cool - great riffs with impressive high vocals

It's a great debut, they sound a little bit between WASP and Testament to me, a blend of Heavy and Thrash, I haven't listened to any of their other albums yet though.

I've just stopped by to look at this list again, and I've got to say - you have great taste!
I'm not that much a fan of Exodus, but I love your other choices: Ride the Lightning, Rust in Peace, The Legacy, Black Future, Kill Em All, Show No Mercy, Peace Sells, And Justice for All, Beneath the Remains, The New Order, and Master of Puppets! Great job!
By the way, I've made a list of my favorite album endings. It would be cool if you could check it out and tell me what you think
