Of course, I am not making any judgments about his rating at all. Where did you get that impression?

Right there:

What rises my eyebrow a bit that you have not even one to like it more than 9/10 and only one at 9/10. Are you generally that critical or you believe it was not a great year for metal?

"To raise one's eyebrow" means to feel skeptical, surprised or mildly scandalized and it's a sign of doubt, disbelief and/or disapproval. If that's just a neutral observation rather than a critical evaluation, then I don't know what is.

A year without a single album rated 10/10 is not considered great in my book

Today is the 318th day of the year, and I'm looking at a list that contains 350 good, very good and excellent album, as well as a bunch of albums that fall somewhere in between. If I were Andy, I would have had a shitload of fun with new and good (!) music every day.
That's an extraordinarily great year in my book and in every book I've ever read.

I think there is an understanding of definition but maybe I tend to be more easily impressed and excited by metal music. I'm genuinely surprised that the last time you discovered a masterpiece was in 1994. Are you certain you still enjoy this music?

Not only that. After more than three decades as a metalhead, I have not only learned to appreciate good music, I've also learned to differentiate between good, very good, excellent and perfect music. To me a rating of 7/10 means good, which is a positive assessment and I wish more people saw it that way.
There's nothing bad about good and I like good music almost as much as I like very good music. Don't tell me you don't.

Based on the definition you just provided, I was surprised and expressed a sign of disbelief that among 700+ albums, none resonated strongly enough with Andy to warrant a 10. Simultaneously, I proposed two plausible explanations, one being that he is more critical listener than I am, a perspective I genuinely believe. This isn't judgmental, and there's nothing wrong with being more discerning. I don't think Andy took it as a disapproval of his votes, unlike how you interpreted it. This isn't the first time you've read more into my words than intended. Please refrain from constructing strawmen that you later attempt to dismantle

Good for you, not good enough for me. Thats ok though.

I appreciate good music, but I have a particular fondness for what I consider very good and, especially, great music. I'm the kind of listener who cherishes and repeatedly listens to a masterpiece album, even if it means missing out on many very good and good ones. I need to apologize, however, as I may have come across as condescending. It seems to me that you approach music differently than I do, and that's perfectly fine if it brings you joy. I've learned long ago that there's no 'right' way of listening and experiencing music; we are unique individuals with different tastes, and that diversity in our approach to music is both expected and completely acceptable.

Curious if you've listened to the new TesseracT? I'm very hit and miss with djent and I can't get into Periphery but TesseracT new album I loved so much I checked out their entire Discography. I can't tell by your list whether you'd be a fan but you do seem to enjoy good prog and I feel like TesseracT are very much a prog band

War of Being is one of the best albums I heard all year, absolutely stellar on all fronts!

Couldn't agree more my friend. It's very easily a top 10 contender for me, but this year has been so insane for releases that it missed out on mine by quite a distance. But if it was released in almost any other year it's possibly nailed on top 10. But it's still incredibly high on my list considering how many new releases I've listened to.

Not sure if you've heard Taubrą - Therizo but I didn't notice it on your extremely large list so I thought I'd recommend it haha. We seem to have a very similar taste in Black metal so it's definitely one I think more people need to hear. The main guy from Aara is on guitars.

Edit: I tried tagging the band page but it didn't work. Still not sure how to do that

I've taken the liberty of amending your comment and you can edit your post to see what exactly I did. It's not very complicated; the [band] tag is self-explanatory once you've seen it.

My list is much much shorter than yours, but it brought me joy to the see the very same Blackbraid record at the top.

Such a cool list from beginning to end, keep up the good work.

Thanks, I do my best at keeping the list updated on a regular basis I'm happy to see someone else showing appreciation for Blackbraid's release aswel, it's still my favorite, and one of my most played this year despite their being so many great releases since

I am curious, last year you had 30 albums that were 8 or higher, this year almost 80 and twice as many that are 8.5 or higher. Do you feel this year had that much higher quality that last or do you feel more generous with your ratings?

Good question. If I have to be honest I believe the quality this year is far greater than that of last year. I've actually managed to invest time between listening to new releases to go back to last year's releases, for some I may have missed, but also for some I feel I may have underrated, and there's still very few from last year that really stand out for me.

Other than the odd stand-out track from a particular album I actually find Panzerfaust, Psychonaut, Darkest Era and Jade the only albums I've found myself revisit on a regular basis, whereas this year there's that many I sometimes struggle which release to listen to next.

For me my three top albums from Chat Pile, An Abstract Illusion and Brutus are still better to me than most I’ve listened to this year but I agree that overall I’ve had many more standouts this year. I did like the Psychonaut and Jade albums a lot but haven’t gone back to listen in awhile. Nearly 800 albums though, impressive! Maybe 900 next year? for me I will maybe get half what I listened to this year, just started a new role at work this month and I no longer have the free time I did so I’m sure I’ll be skimming your list to hit the best ones

I've actually surprised myself how much I've listened to this year, I didn't have a particular target in mind at the beginning but was hoping to hit a similar amount as the previous year, so roughly around the 650 mark and anything more would be a bonus. I'm already looking forward to what next year brings, I would like to hit a similar amount but I doubt I'll surpass this years.
