Accept Restless and Wild
Adman Jammin'
Aerosmith Toys in the Attic

Anthrax Spreading the Disease
B.B. King Live in Cook County Jail
B.B. King Lucille

Modern power metal masterpiece. All killer, no filler.

One of the riffing-est rock albums ever recorded. Doesn't get much better than this.
Cheap Trick Heaven Tonight
Children of Bodom Follow the Reaper

Coroner Punishment for Decadence
Crystal Eyes In Silence They March
Oh hell yeah. Hidden power metal masterpiece right here boys. GOOOOOOD shit.
David Allan Coe 17 Greatest Hits
Death The Sound of Perseverance
Deep Purple Deep Purple In Rock
These guys went from a mediocre prog-rock outfit to one of the all-time greats in under a year. This is the true debut as far as I'm concerned.
Def Leppard Pyromania
Def Leppard Hysteria
Demolition Hammer Epidemic of Violence
Dio The Last in Line
Dire Straits Love Over Gold
This album is so good it's nauseating.
Dokken Under Lock and Key
Edguy Space Police - Defenders of the Crown
Edguy Theater of Salvation

Exorcist (USA-NY) Nightmare Theatre
Fucking listen to this. One of the most riffing-est albums ever recorded.
Farrah Abraham My Teenage Dream Ended
Freedom Call Eternity
Ghost (SWE) Meliora
Grant MacDonald Ram Ranch
Helloween Keeper of the Seven Keys Part I
Helloween Helloween
This is gonna make a lot of people (including me), very, very happy. I'm glad they didn't
do a copy job of their 80's output, and managed to branch out sonically; covering all eras
of the band pretty well. It's no Keeper of the Seven Keys, but it's pretty damn close.
Hot Dad Wrestle
Huey Lewis and the News Sports
Huey Lewis and the News Greatest Hits
Desert island album right here. Huey was the soundtrack of my youth.
Iced Earth The Glorious Burden
Yo, yoooooooooo. I fuckin' love this.
Immortal At the Heart of Winter
Impellitteri Screaming Symphony
Iron Maiden Somewhere in Time
Maiden comes back stronger than ever with this album. Guitar synths are used to great effect, and the solos are beyond fantastic on this album. Grand choruses and epic production make this a true experience. My absolute favorite.
Iron Maiden Rock in Rio (DVD)
Judas Priest Sad Wings of Destiny
Judas Priest Sin After Sin
Judas Priest Defenders of the Faith
Judas Priest Painkiller
Judas Priest Firepower
From What I've heard, this album will be one of their greatest releases.

*Update* I was absolutely correct.
Judas Priest Defenders of the Faith 30th Anniversary Edition
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Nonagon Infinity
Kow Otani GMK: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack
Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IV
Limp Bizkit Still Sucks
This is the first time in Sputnik history where rating an album before it's released is 100% justified.
Macho Man Randy Savage Be A Man
Manowar Hail to England
Megadeth Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
Mercyful Fate Don't Break the Oath
Metal Church The Dark
Metallica Ride the Lightning
Misfits Famous Monsters
Yeah, this is my favorite Misfit record. You gonna fuckin' do something about it?
Motorhead Ace of Spades
Motorhead 1916
Norden Light Shadows From the Wilderness
One of the biggest hidden gems of the 80's. An AOR masterpiece.
Overkill The Years of Decay
Overkill Ironbound
Ozzy Osbourne The Ultimate Sin
I don't give a shit what the people say; THIS is Ozzy's best record.
Pat Boone In A Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy
GTFO this is an undeniable classic. Easily one of the best albums of the 90s
Pitbull Planet Pit
Iconic. The music that defined a generation; and peak human creativity.

Picture THAT with a Kodak motherfuckers.
Queen Innuendo
Queensryche Operation: Mindcrime
Rainbow Rising
Best metal album ever recorded? Possibly. I don't have any rebuttals to that claim, so I guess it can wear that title comfortably.
Ramones Leave Home
Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine
I'm telling you folks: DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ONE.
Running Wild Black Hand Inn
Samhain November-Coming-Fire
Savatage Streets: A Rock Opera
Savatage Hall of the Mountain King
Saxon Unleash the Beast
Scanner Hypertrace
Fucking awesome album. I have a soft spot for science fiction themed metal albums, and this is one of the very best.
Scorpions Blackout
Seikima-II Mephistopheles no Shouzou
Everything that makes Seikima-II great, condensed and amplified in a 50 minute package. Essential Japanese metal listening.
Skull Fist Chasing the Dream
Sodom Agent Orange
Sonata Arctica Ecliptica
Wow, this is so fucking good. The only album by these guys I had heard up to this point is "Talvyio", so I expected this to suck ass too. Thankfully, it doesn't, not even fuckin close.
Strangeways Walk in the Fire
Some of the best AOR I've ever heard. You gotta check this out.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Coming Out Of Their Shells
I unironically love the song Pizza Power
TerribleTim TerribleTim Spreads Love
Testament The Ritual
I don't give a flying fuck if a band changes their sound, as long as it sounds good; and this record right here fucking rules. The Ritual doesn't sound like a thrash band softening their sound, it sounds like a band playing the music they were always meant to.
The Beatles Abbey Road
The Cars The Cars
The best mom rock album ever recorded. Shit slaps hard
The Dickies Dawn of the Dickies
Revisited this for the first time since junior year, I love it even more now.
The Pharcyde Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde
The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers
The Rolling Stones Exile on Main St.
Rock and roll has never been done better.
Thin Lizzy Thunder and Lightning
Tilt (JPN) The Beast In Your Bed
The greatest album you didn't know existed. Any fans of classic hard rock/metal
absolutely NEED to check this one out.
Toxik Think This
Twilight Force Dawn of the Dragonstar
The energy, power, and cohesion brought forth on this album is something 2019 has been sorely
lacking. Everyone on the record is putting in 110%, and the orchestral arrangements flow perfectly
on every track. Every song is delightfully catchy and cheesy, and the title track may be my song
of the year.
U.D.O. Animal House
Accept really shit the bed by not recording and releasing this record themselves. Easily some of the best songs the band have ever written. Udo definitely faired the best after they parted ways.
Van Halen Van Halen
Venom Welcome to Hell
Fast, loose, ugly, evil, and a shitload of fun. These guys truly were pioneers of extreme metal, and never get the respect they rightfully deserve. Crank this shit in a cold, dark basement, and have yourself a fuckin blast.
Virgin Steele Invictus
Easily one of the top 5 power metal albums of all time. Absolutely incredible final installment to an already amazing trilogy of albums.
W.A.S.P. The Headless Children
One of the greatest metal albums of the late 80's. Deal with it.
Whitesnake Whitesnake
One of the best glam metal albums ever recorded. It's such a satisfying listen.
X Japan Art of Life
Probably the most impressive piece of metal music ever recorded. Absolutely genius.
Yngwie Malmsteen Eclipse

4.5 superb
AC/DC Let There Be Rock
AC/DC Powerage
AC/DC Let There Be Rock (Australia)
Accept Blind Rage
Accept Russian Roulette
Accept Stalingrad: Brothers In Death
Aerosmith Rocks
Alcatrazz Disturbing the Peace
The fuck is wrong with you guys? This album is so fucking good.
Alice Cooper Killer
Alice Cooper DaDa
Alice Cooper Hey Stoopid
Alice in Chains Dirt
Alice in Chains Jar of Flies
Alice in Chains The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
This record doesn't get the recognition it deserves. This is neck and neck with Dirt for me.
Ambush (SWE) Infidel
These Swedes know exactly what they are doing. On Infidel, Ambush turns up the aggression
and takes no prisoners. Let's hope we don't have to wait another 5 years for the next
Amon Amarth With Oden on Our Side
now this is what I'm fuckin talkin about
Amon Amarth Twilight of the Thunder God
Angel Witch Angel Witch
Angra Temple of Shadows
Annihilator Alice in Hell
Quite possibly the best produced thrash album ever recorded. The songs are fucking amazing too.
Annihilator King of the Kill
Anthem Nucleus
Just as fantastic as I expected. Anthem keeps this collection of re-recordings
familiar, yet still manages to make it fresh and exciting. I'm glad they didn't rely on
their biggest hits, and decided to focus on the underrated gems of their latter day
Anthem Burning Oath
Anthem Bound to Break
Anthem Black Empire
Anthrax Sound of White Noise
Anthrax For All Kings
Anvil Forged in Fire
Artillery By Inheritance
Atheist Unquestionable Presence
Atlantean Kodex The Course of Empire
Avantasia The Mystery Of Time
Axel Rudi Pell The Masquerade Ball
Axxis Back to the Kingdom
Bathory Bathory
Beast In Black From Hell With Love
Black Death Black Death
Black Sabbath Headless Cross
A highlight in Black Sabbath's already impressive discography. If Dio was on vocals this would have a 4+ average on this site and you know it. Purists seriously need to stop riding Ozzy and Dio's dicks so hard and actually give this a listen. One of the best albums Sabbath have ever released.
Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell
Black Sabbath Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath Paranoid
Blackfoot Strikes
God this thing is fuckin' TASTY.
Blackslash Sinister Lightning
Blazon Stone Damnation
Blazon Stone No Sign of Glory
Blind Guardian Imaginations from the Other Side
Blind Guardian Nightfall in Middle-Earth
Blitzkrieg A Time Of Changes
How am I just now discovering this band? I never even knew they existed
Bloodbound Rise of the Dragon Empire
Surprisingly good, not a dud on the record. Throw this on while playing Dark Souls and you're set.
Bloodbound Nosferatu
Bloodbound War of Dragons
Hot damn, this is some good shit! Dragons are cool.
Blue Oyster Cult Cultösaurus Erectus
Blue Oyster Cult Fire of Unknown Origin
Brainfever You
Brainstorm Downburst
Brazen Abbot Live And Learn
Glenn Hughs and Goran Edman were in an heavy AOR band together? This is awesome! How have I never heard of this?!
Breitenhold Secret Worlds
Candlemass Nightfall
Carcass Surgical Steel
Celtic Frost Monotheist
Celtic Frost To Mega Therion
Cheap Trick In Color
Cheap Trick Dream Police
Children of Bodom Hatebreeder
Children of Bodom Hexed
I had never given this band a listen, but Nuclear Blast was really pushing them, so I gave them a shot. I can now safely say I'm a fan.
Children of Bodom Hate Crew Deathroll
Chris Stapleton Traveller
Cinderella Night Songs
Conception Parallel Minds
Coroner No More Color
Coroner Mental Vortex
Coverdale and Page Coverdale/Page
Cryptosis Bionic Swarm
Wow, this is really good. Why can't more modern thrash be like this?
Crystal Ball In the Beginning
Crystal Eyes Starbourne Traveler
One hell of a comeback record. All killer, no filler.
Danzig Danzig II: Lucifuge
Dark Moor The Gates of Oblivion
Death Human
Death Individual Thought Patterns
Death Angel The Evil Divide
Deep Purple Whoosh!
Wow, this kinda blew me away. Easily their best since Perpendicular
Deep Purple Purpendicular
For the second time Deep Purple show us they don't need Blackmore to make a kickass rrecord. This album has a little bit of everything, but never once feels unfocused of reclectic. Definitely up there with their best material.
Deep Purple Machine Head
While I don't think it's QUITE as good as it's reputation lead me to believe, I can't deny just how consistent and satisfying Machine Head is.
Deep Purple Burn
I will forever stand by my opinion that Burn is on par with In Rock and Machine Head. he title track is also my all-time favorite DP track. So fuckin good.
Deep Purple Perfect Strangers
Seriously can't believe I used to dislike this album in middle school. Such a foolish 12 year old I was.
Def Leppard High 'N' Dry
Demon The Unexpected Guest
Stellar follow-up to their already fantastic debut. Quintessential NWOBHM
Demon Night of the Demon
This is the album I never knew I needed. I'm gonna be jamming this all October.
Destruction Cracked Brain
Fuck you, this is my favorite Destruction album.
Destruction Mad Butcher
I absolutely dumbfounded how 4 of the best tracks this band ever recorded were never included on an actual full length release.
Dethklok Dethalbum II
I'm so glad I started watching Metalocalypse. This shit is absolutely fantastic.
Diamond Head The Coffin Train
What I ended up listening to was not I expected from this album at all. The short headbangers are
great, but where this album really hits it's stride is in the thick atmospherics of the deeper
cuts like "The Sleeper" and "When We Burn".
Dio Holy Diver
Dio Magica
Dire Straits Brothers in Arms
Dokken Tooth and Nail
Dokken The Lost Songs: 1978-1981
Why the fuck were these songs never released? This is easily some of Don's best work. No shit, this is legitimately superb.
DragonForce Reaching into Infinity
Dream Evil Dragon Slayer
As far as power metal goes, this may just have the best production the genre has to offer. Grandiose, epic, cheesy, uplifting, and a shit ton of fun. Love it to death.
Dynazty The Dark Delight
Eclipse (SWE) Paradigm
Yeah, this is pretty wicked. Not a dud in the bunch
Eclipse (SWE) Monumentum
Edge of Sanity Crimson
Edge of Sanity Crimson II
Edguy Hellfire Club
Edguy Mandrake
Edguy Vain Glory Opera
Elegy (NLD) Lost
Emperor In the Nightside Eclipse
Enforcer From Beyond
Eternity's End Embers of War
This is fucking amazing.
Evil Invaders Feed Me Violence
Exciter Violence and Force
Exodus Fabulous Disaster
Exodus Tempo of the Damned
Best Exodus album.
Faith No More Angel Dust
Weird as fuck, but in the best way.
Flotsam and Jetsam Blood in the Water
Why is this so fucking good? Every single track ranges from great to fantastic. Well done guys.
Flotsam and Jetsam Doomsday for the Deceiver
Freedom Call Stairway to Fairyland
Freedom Call Master of Light
Galneryus Ultimate Sacrifice
Galneryus Into the Purgatory
Gama Bomb Speed Between The Lines
Gamma Ray Somewhere Out in Space
Gamma Ray Power Plant
Gamma Ray No World Order
Gary Moore Wild Frontier
Gloryhammer Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards
This album made me a born-again virgin, and I'm not even upset about it.
Gorillaz Demon Days
Grave Digger Excalibur
Grave Digger The Grave Digger
Grim Reaper Rock You To Hell
Haunt (USA-CA) If Icarus Could Fly
Havok Conformicide
Hot damn, you can tell they had an agenda when writing this one. Their best yet.
Heavens Gate Livin' In Hysteria
Helloween The Time of the Oath
Helloween Straight Out of Hell
Helloween Better Than Raw
Helloween Walls of Jericho
Hellripper Warlocks Grim and Withered Hags
Wow, this kinda fucks. AOTY material right here.
Highland Glory From the Cradle to the Brave
House of Lords Precious Metal
Huey Lewis and the News Fore!
Iced Earth Something Wicked This Way Comes
Good shit.
Iced Earth Night of the Stormrider
Immortal All Shall Fall
Impellitteri Answer To The Master
Impellitteri Stand in Line
In Flames Whoracle
In Flames Colony
In Flames Clayman
Iron Curtain (ESP) Savage Dawn
Ah hell yeah, the music definitely matches that badass artwork. THIS is how you do throwback metal right here.
Iron Maiden Powerslave
Working their way up, Maiden finally releases a worthwhile album with Bruce. One of Maiden's strongest efforts of the 80's.
Iron Maiden Brave New World
Great return of Bruce and one of the best post Blaze albums Maiden has released. Only issue is that the running times of the songs started to linger too long. This would be an issue that would plague future Maiden releases.
Iron Maiden Empire of the Clouds
Jag Panzer Ample Destruction
Apt title, this thing fucking slaughtered me.
Journey Escape
The quintessential feel good album. Nothing deep or thought provoking on here, but that's what makes it so enjoyable.
Judas Priest Screaming for Vengeance
Judas Priest Ram It Down
Judas Priest Unleashed in the East
Judas Priest The Complete Albums Collection
Judas Priest Invincible Shield
While not quite on the level of Firepower, Invincible Shield is still an incredibly impressive showcase of pure metal magic from a band that has been kicking for over half a century. Do yourself a favor and skip those bonus tracks, though.r
Kairos Queen of the Hill
This is good, damn good. I'll have to check out their debut now.
Kalmah Swampsong
Kamelot The Black Halo
Kanye West Yeezus
Kendrick Lamar To Pimp a Butterfly
King Diamond Conspiracy
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Infest the Rats' Nest
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard I'm In Your Mind Fuzz
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Omnium Gatherum
Long as hell, but totally worth it. So many great ideas and sounds present here, and all of them work surprisingly well. The fact that KGLW can pull off two fun rap numbers just goes to show that there isn't a single genre they tackle convincingly.
Kingdom Come In Your Face
KISS Hotter Than Hell
KISS Rock and Roll Over
KISS Creatures of the Night
Kool G. Rap and DJ Polo Live and Let Die
Kreator Coma of Souls
Fuck Extreme Aggression, THIS is Kreator's magnum opus.
Krokus Headhunter
Kvelertak Kvelertak
Lard The Last Temptation of Reid
Leatherwolf Street Ready
Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin II
Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy
Lost Horizon A Flame to the Ground Beneath
Loudness Shadows of War
Loudness Soldier of Fortune
Loudness The Law of Devil's Land
Magnum On a Storyteller's Night
Aw hell yeah; this thing rocks! That guitar tone is simply magical.
Magnum The Serpent Rings
Real shit? This is one of their best albums. Modern Magnum is a force to be reckoned with.
Magnum On The 13th Day
Manilla Road Open the Gates
This album kicks Crystal Logic's ass, and you know it.
Manilla Road The Courts of Chaos
Although albums like Mystification and The Deluge are great, this album right here was the moment where Manilla Road took their sound to the next level. Not quite as heavy as their earlier material, but far more satisfying in my humble opinion.
Manowar Kings of Metal
Mastodon Once More 'Round the Sun
Mayhem Daemon
Hold up, this thing slaps way harder than I was expecting. I might have to start getting into
black metal now.
Meat Loaf Bat Out of Hell
Meat Loaf Bad Attitude
This album slays from front to back. It may not be as ambitious as the "Bat Out Of Hell"
saga, but the songs are direct, infectious and ridiculously fun. Probably my favorite record
from Mr. Loaf.
Mega Colossus Riptime
Megadeth So Far, So Good... So What!
Megadeth Rust in Peace
Megadeth Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!
Mekong Delta Lurking Fear
The peak of thrash comebacks right here. Probably the greatest thing they've ever released.
Mercyful Fate Melissa
Metal Church The Human Factor
Metal Church Metal Church
Metal Church XI
Metallica Master of Puppets
Metallica Metallica
The fattest snare sound of all time. God bless it
Michael Jackson Dangerous
Michael Jackson Bad
Michael Jackson Thriller
Misfits Walk Among Us
Misfits Static Age
Moonlight Sorcery Horned Lord of the Thorned Castle
God this album is fucking awesome. Probably gonna be my pick for album of the year; borderline perfect.
Moonlight Sorcery Piercing Through the Frozen Eternity
This band is fucking amazing. I don't even listen to EP's but their debut was so kickass I
had to.
Morbid Angel Altars of Madness
Morbid Saint Spectrum of Death
Motley Crue Shout at the Devil
Motorhead Another Perfect Day
Motorhead Overkill
Motorhead Rock 'N' Roll
Motorhead Kiss of Death
For my money, this is the best Motorhead record of the 21st century. Inferno isn't far behind it though.
Mr. Bungle Mr. Bungle
"My Ass Is on Fire" sent me into a deep fit of psychosis. I'm still not sure if that is a positive or not.
Night Ranger Dawn Patrol
Nightwish Once
Ninja Sex Party NSFW
Nuclear Assault Handle With Care
Orden Ogan Easton Hope
Orden Ogan To The End
Overkill The Grinding Wheel
Re-listened to this today, and it's somehow even better than I remembered it being when I bought it back in 2017. 2010's Overkill could do no wrong, I swear.
Overkill The Electric Age
Ozzy Osbourne No More Tears
Ozzy Osbourne Diary of a Madman
Petra On Fire!
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
Finally, a Pink Floyd album I understand the hype behind.
Pink Floyd The Wall
They did it. They actually did it. Pink Floyd made an album I actually love. Took a long time to get here, but I finally found a Pink Floyd album I'd personally consider to be exceptional.
Pink Floyd A Momentary Lapse of Reason
I am not a Pink Floyd fan by any means, but this is easily my favorite Pink Floyd record. Doesn't sound much like traditional PF, which is probably the reason I like it so much.
Powermad Absolute Power
Why do so many prog-thrash artists only release 1 or 2 albums?
Powerwolf The Sacrament of Sin
Praying Mantis Predator In Disguise
Good stuff! I come back to this one a lot. It hits that sweet spot of cheesy melodic goodness that I can't get enough of. Tracks like 'Can't See the Angels' and 'Borderline' are immortal jams.
Primal Fear Seven Seals
Primus Pork Soda
Q5 Steel the Light
Queen The Miracle
Queen Sheer Heart Attack
Queen News of the World

Riot The Privilege of Power
Riot City Electric Elite
This album fucks.
Riot V Armor of Light
Riot V Unleash The Fire
Rocka Rollas The Road to Destruction
Running Wild Port Royal
Running Wild Death or Glory
Running Wild Victory
Disgustingly low user score for a fantastic album. Not only does Victory have some of the biggest hooks in Running Wild's discog, it is also home to a plethora of catchy riffs and absolutely crushing production job. In need of some serious re-evaluation.
Running Wild Blood on Blood
If you would have told me Running Wild would release one of the best albums of their career in 2021, I would have laughed in your face and called you a complete retard. But here we are in 2021, with Running Wild releasing a late-career opus that rivals their strongest material from the 80's and 90's.
Rush Clockwork Angels
Rush 2112
Rush Power Windows
Best Rush album.
Sabaton Carolus Rex
Sabaton Heroes
Sabaton The Great War
Contender for my album of the year. Sabaton end the 2010's with the biggest bang possible.
Sabire Gates Ajar
The best modern trad-metal I've heard in years. Do yourself a favor and check this out; these guys are the real deal.
Sacred Warrior Master's Command
I bet Jesus loves this album, because I know I do.
Savatage Gutter Ballet
Savatage Poets and Madmen
Saxon Thunderbolt
4 years later and Thunderbolt still holds up as one of Saxon's most consistent and varied records. Absolutely killer in every regard.
Saxon Dogs of War
Nope, I don't get the hate for this one. This is pretty much an all killer, no filler record for me.
Saxon Power and the Glory
Killer shit right here. The Eagle Has Landed is a fuckin' tour de force.
Scanner Terminal Earth
Scorpions Crazy World
Scorpions Love At First Sting
Scorpions Taken by Force

Sepultura Beneath the Remains
Skelator Cyber Metal
Slade The Amazing Kamikaze Syndrome
Slade Till Deaf Do Us Part
Slayer Seasons in the Abyss
And then they broke up, never to release another album again.
Slipknot We Are Not Your Kind
After 25 years, Slipknot finally gets it. By far the best thing they've ever released.
Smoulder Violent Creed of Vengeance
Excellent release. Has that vintage metal sound , but manages to still sound fresh and exciting.
Sodom M-16
Best Sodom album? Probably.
Sonata Arctica Winterheart's Guild
Soundtrack (Film) Napoleon Dynamite
Stormwarrior Heading Northe
Stratovarius Destiny
Stratovarius Nemesis
Stratovarius Episode
Stratovarius Survive
Survive? More like thrive. One of Stratovarius's greatest albums to date.
Striker Armed To The Teeth
Striker City of Gold
Stryper To Hell With the Devil
Suicidal Tendencies Lights...Camera...Revolution
Survivor Vital Signs
Sword Metalized
Tankard Alien
Tankard Zombie Attack
Tankard R.I.B.
This is one hell of a comeback. Not often that a band this old puts out arguably their best album this late in their career.
Tesla Mechanical Resonance
Testament The New Order
Testament Brotherhood of the Snake
Borderline perfect modern thrash record. BOTS takes the accessibility and catchiness from "The Ritual" and blends it with the relentless aggression of "The Gathering" to create a modern thrash classic. Every aspect of what makes Testament great is on full display here, and it's absolutely glorious.
The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Okay, fine. I may hate Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, but everything else on here is really good...
The Black Dahlia Murder Everblack
The Offspring Smash
The Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet
The Rolling Stones Let It Bleed
The Rolling Stones Some Girls
Theocracy Mirror of Souls
Thin Lizzy Jailbreak
Thin Lizzy Black Rose: A Rock Legend
Toto The Seventh One
Best Toto album by a long shot.
Triumph Never Surrender
Trivium In the Court of the Dragon
First Trivium album I've enjoyed since Shogun. Matt thankfully keeps his earth-shatteringly rgeneric clean vocals to a minimum, which really helps. I thought I was done with them after rWTDMS, but this pleasantly surprised me. The 2nd half is superb.
Trivium Shogun
Turbo Kawaleria Szatana
Turbo Dorosłe dzieci

Voivod Nothingface
Voivod The Outer Limits
Voivod The Wake
YES. They did it. THEY FUCKING DID IT. Real talk, this might be their best album. Some REALLY good
shit here.
Vulture (DE) Dealin' Death
When it comes to modern thrash, these guys are the real deal. Definitely make sure you
check this out, you wont regret it.
Vulture (DE) Sentinels
This is the shit that moistens pussies and hardens cocks.
W.A.S.P. W.A.S.P.
W.A.S.P. The Crimson Idol
Warbringer Weapons of Tomorrow
I'm not a huge fan of most modern thrash bands, but Warbringer is certainly an exception. Think we're looking at a modern classic right here.
Weird Al Yankovic Dare To Be Stupid
White Wizzard Infernal Overdrive
Whitesnake Forevermore
The fact David Coverdale released an album THIS good in 2011 is nothing short of astounding. Every single song slaps, and the overall product stands toe to toe with their best records.

AC/DC Blow Up Your Video
AC/DC Ballbreaker
AC/DC Live
AC/DC Power Up
We all know AC/DC have never, and will never change. But with that being said, this album
is a notable jump in quality, and easily the best thing they've released in nearly 40
years. Dumb fun, but fun regardless. Submit to your inner middle-aged dad and have a good

Alcatrazz Born Innocent
Graham Bonnet is such an underrated songwriter. Some really great stories on this record.
Alcatrazz No Parole from Rock 'n' Roll
Alestorm Seventh Rum of a Seventh Rum
Was gonna give this a 3.5, but then discovered that the deluxe edition contains a version of the album with dark barks in place of the vocals.
Alice Cooper Constrictor
Alice Cooper Love It To Death
Alice Cooper Welcome To My Nightmare
Alice Cooper Special Forces
I fucking love this record. This and DaDa make Cooper's "blackout" era more than worth a
listen. Skip Zipper though, that album fucking sucks.
Alice Cooper Brutal Planet
One of the finest examples of "albums that should suck balls, but are actually fantastic".

Not reinventing the wheel by any means, but it didn't need to. By playing it safe Bloodbound ensured that almost every song on here is a banger.

Deep Purple Stormbringer
The Coverdale era of Deep Purple is sickeningly underrated. Stormbringer funks AND fucks.
Deep Purple Come Taste the Band
This album fucking rocks dude. Replacing Blackmore was a Herculean task, but Bolin fucking SLAYS on here. It's no 'In Rock' or 'Machine Head', but it isn't too far behind. This record is some serious need of reassessment.
Deep Purple Slaves and Masters
I love this album. I understand why people don't like it, but it hits all the notes I
wanted from a Joe Lynn Turner fronted Deep Purple album. It may not sound like the band's
classic output, but it showed Deep Purple could make a damn good AOR record.
Deep Purple Now What?!
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY fucking better than Rapture of the Deep.

Never really liked Exhorder's first two albums, but this one is solid from top to bottom. Contender for thrash album of the year.
Exodus Force of Habit
Exodus Bonded by Blood
Killer songs, but Christ those vocals are rough. Not to speak ill of the dead, but Paul Baloff seriously couldn't sing.
Exodus Pleasures of the Flesh
I'd say the songs aren't quite as strong as BbB, but the vocals are 100% better. This kinda revens it out, keeping them on par with each other.
Exodus Persona Non Grata
I really don't understand why people are hating on the vocals so much. He sounds just like he did on Blood In, Blood Out... The material on here is stronger than the stuff on that album too. Their best since Tempo.

A glorious little hidden gem from the early 80s. The band isn't super tight performance wise, but the spirit and love for the genre are on full display, and it's extremely charming. Imagine a more downtempo Manilla Road with better vocals.

Iron Maiden Dance of Death
The last time Maiden sounded like they were actually having fun. Take off the last 3 tracks, and you've got one hell of a Maiden album. Doesn't top Brave New World, but it does stand as one of their best post-Blaze era releases.
Iron Maiden Iron Maiden
Great debut from metal legends. Only fault is the two slower songs that detract from the album's feel.
Iron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
Man I used to think this album was the shit back in the day. I still think it's a solid Maiden release, but any time those self indulgent prog ballads kick in I kinda wanna ralph. The more times I revisit it, the less I like it.
Iron Maiden Fear of the Dark
Easily Maiden's most varied and interesting record to date. Not everything on here lands, but when it does, it's fantastic. Had the band cut a couple filler tracks, this may have landed a spot in my top 5 Maiden albums.
Iron Maiden The X Factor
Fiercely underrated album. Only hated because it's not Bruce, but that's why the album succeeds in being such a great listen. "Sign of the Cross" is the best Iron Maiden song ever.
Iron Maiden The Book of Souls
The last two albums were weak as hell. Let's hope they found out how to pace songs or else we'll
be subjected to an 18 minute song with two riffs.

Update: This album really exceeded my expectations. Maiden has finally figured out how to pad out
songs running times, making every second of each song feel necessary. Every song fits together
like a puzzle. I think a large fact of the albums greatness is the fact that Harris was absent
through most of the songwriting process, allowing the rest of the bands writing abilities to
really shine. While not perfect, it's immensely satisfying to hear Maiden with this much energy
again. Overall a damn good album, and their best since 'The X Factor'.

I was not expecting this to be any good at all, yet here I am giving this a 4. Even though its 20 minutes too long, this is probably their strongest record since Frontiers in 85.

Kryptos Force of Danger
Force of Danger may be a little more streamlined than it's predecessor, but the overall experience is a tad better in my opinion. The title track sounds like it came straight off an Ambush record, which is never a bad thing.

Yet again, my opinion on this album was grown quite a bit since the last time I listened to
it. It's undeniably their weakest record from the 2010's, but it's still leaps and bounds
above what most other thrash acts are releasing nowadays. Good luck finding a band this old
releasing music with this much intensity.

*Bumping this up from a 3.5 to a 4.
Overkill Feel the Fire
Ozzy Osbourne Blizzard of Ozz

I enjoyed this quite a bit. Reminds me of vintage Stratovarius with it's emphasis on melody and instrumentation, but with a refreshing amount of restraint which is hard to come by these days.

The opening track is dope and 'Echoes' is amazing, but everything in between shouldn't be there. With that being said, those two songs are enough for me to actually recommend this album to people like myself, who don't enjoy prog.

Greatest rock album of all time? No.
Best progressive rock album of all time? No.
Greatest rock album of the seventies? No.

A solid progressive rock album from the seventies? Yes.
Pink Floyd Animals
I was really expecting to hate "fUcK cApItAlIsM" the album, but aside from the boring
drudgery of 'Dogs', I actually really enjoyed this one. This is a classic case of
disagreeing with a band's message, but enjoying the record regardless.
Poltergeist (CHE) Depression
One of those albums I listened to because I liked the cover art. Great artwork, and great record.
Poppy I Disagree (more)
These new tracks are some of Poppy's strongest material. I'd say keeping them off the initial release hurt it quite a bit. If you're gonna listen to any version this record, make it this one.

Really enjoyable Fate worship.

Wow, I didn't expect much going in, but I was blown away by how old-school and intense this sounded.

Okay, so I listened to this two years later, and for some reason it fucking slapped this time. Bumped from a 3 to a 4.
Powerwolf Blood of the Saints
Powerwolf Interludium
For an album of leftovers, the material here is surprisingly awesome. Genuinely one of their strongest releases to date.
Praying Mantis Forever in Time
Praying Mantis Defiance
Color me impressed; I was not expecting this to be so good. The track "Standing Tall" is a strange, yet awesome little bit of sonic experimentation for a band that been around since the dawn of the NWOBHM.
Praying Mantis Gravity
Probably the band's most creative and varied release to date. Covers a lot of sonic ground, but still manages to be a cohesive package.

It may be too polished for some, but I really dig the more streamlined and commercial sound the boys went for here. I'm always down for a good sellout record.

Sodom decided they were done fuckin' around and finally returned to what they do best; thrashin'.

Striker Stand in the Fire
Striker Play To Win
A much more cohesive and finished product than their previous release only a year prior. A small
gripe I have with the record lies in it's lyrics and how many times the phrases "Into the night"
or "Through the night" are used. The album has a bit of a pacing issue, with the tempo's lacking
variation, and the drum work, while impressive on a technical level, is a little too similar from
track to track. However, Striker manages to deliver the goods when it comes to killer production,
sheer intensity, technical ability, and raw power.

Best Tracks - Position of Power, Play to Win, Heavy is the Heart

The fact that this record holds the 2nd lowest community ranking for any Tankard album is not only wrong, it's insulting. This album and RIB are among the best records the band has ever released.

Yet another shining example that Christian metal doesn't have to sound forced or sterile. Might be a little too much fluffy frilly stuff for my liking, but there is a lot of really solid material here.

Wow, I wasn't expecting this to be so good. Even against their other two outstanding classic records this holds up. I know Breaking Class may have left a bad taste in your mouth, but I assure you these guys got their shit together and delivered us a smorgasbord of unorthodox thrash goodness.r
Trastorned Into The Void
I love modern thrash that's actually good.

The atmosphere of this album is truly exquisite. Tribulation has to be one of the best acts in all of contemporary metal.

Twilight Force Heroes of Mighty Magic
Twilight Force At the Heart of Wintervale
While the longer compositions may be a little lackluster, I just can't deny how much fun this thing is. Twilight Force are THE premier act in modern power metal, so you really can't go wrong with giving this a listen. Feel-good metal at its finest.
Twisted Sister You Can't Stop Rock 'n' Roll

I don't think Voivod have any bad albums left in them. I guarantee that every new record they release from here to their retirement will be absolute bangers.

Vulture (DE) The Guillotine
W.A.S.P. The Last Command
Album fucks hard. Get on it you guys.
W.A.S.P. Dominator
Apt title
W.A.S.P. Golgotha
This is so solid. Dying For the World, Dominator and Babylon proved that W.A.S.P. were still a force to be reckoned with and Golgotha basically cemented them as living legends. I usually disapprove of bands taking themselves too seriously, but Blackie pulls it off with flying colors. Hopefully this isn't the last record they release, but if it is, it's a great note to go out on.

Be'lakor The Frail Tide
Beast In Black Dark Connection
The songwriting is a little weaker than the first 2 records, but it still delivers
everything you'd want from a Beast in Black album. There's also a song dedicated to Cyber
City Oedo: 808, which makes me very happy.
Black Sabbath Never Say Die!
This is just a solid hard rock record. Compared to early Sabbath it's not impressive, but on it's own merits its really enjoyable.
Black Sabbath The Eternal Idol
Black Sabbath Born Again
I don't give a shit if Gillan doesn't fit the band or how shitty the artwork is. This album has a song called "Digital Bitch", I'm kind of required to like it.

Love these guys, and I really dig this new record. The boys in BC sound tight as fuck on here, leaving nothing to be desired in the performance department. I'd say may biggest critique would be the talking points and social criticisms aren't quite as sharp as they were on Bloodlust, and they seem to be treading over too much familiar water.

The weakest Gillian record of the 70's but still lightyears ahead of the first 3 albums. This really isn't half bad.
Deep Purple inFinite
Another enjoyable offering in post-Blackmore era. Some interesting ideas and concepts
present, but not too many memorable moments in the first 5 tracks. Thankfully, the second
half really picks up the slack and gives us some good shit.

I enjoyed it, but there was one glaring issue I had with it. I couldn't shake the feeling that these guys sounded like a satanic Greta Van Fleet.
Greta Van Fleet Anthem of the Peaceful Army
A consistent and catchy listen, albeit a tad uninspired and unoriginal. Lyrically the album touches upon all the lyrical tropes you would expect from an album of this nature. Despite the album's creative faults, it still remains a highly enjoyable listen with a very talented band to back it up. Hopefully they stray from the cut and paste Led Zeppelin format in the future.
Greta Van Fleet The Battle at Garden's Gate
Definitely a bit too long, but an solid throwback rock album. These guys aren't the musical disease that so many mouth breathers claim they are.
Grim Reaper At The Gates
Was not expecting this to be so good. Steve's voice is for the most part intact, and 'The Hand
That Rocks the Cradle' is among one of the band's best songs. Kinda suffers from a top heavy track
list though.

In Flames Reroute to Remain

Insane Clown Posse Fearless Fred Fury
These guys will always be a guilty pleasure of mine. Love their cheesy horror-themed lyrics, and their bombastic 90's style production. Probably their best since Jeckel Brothers.
Iron Fire Beyond the Void
Straightforward well performed Power Metal. That's all I wanted from this record, and it's exactly
what I got.
Iron Maiden Killers
Wrathchild and Killers are some of the best songs Maiden has to offer.
Iron Maiden Piece of Mind
"Where Eagles Dare" may be one of my favorite Maiden songs, but this album also contains two of Maiden's weakest songs. "Die With Your Boots On" and "Quest For Fire" are completely abysmal efforts.
Iron Maiden Virtual XI
Underrated gem in Maiden's discography. Aside from the 10 minute abomination Angel and the Gambler, the rest of the material on here is really solid.

With that being said, I'm pleasantly surprised with this one. If there's one thing these guys haven't made me do in a while, it's laugh, but The Prophecy did make me chuckle a few times. I even enjoyed the normally unfunny skits they stick in between tracks on this one.

I guess this is the next logical step for her to go. Concrete is easily the best song on here, kinda dips after that. Still thoroughly enjoyable though.

Pretty solid from start to finish. However, it really isn't all too memorable, and I doubt I'll ever get the urge to listen to it again.
Queen A Night at the Opera
Dude, I get Bohemian Rhapsody is a classic, but most of this album is passable pussy rock fluff. That hardened edge of the first 3 records is gone, and it is sorely lacking. I mean, this is still a solid album, but it is FAR from their best.
Queen A Day at the Races
Queen The Game
Queen The Works
Queen A Kind of Magic
Queensryche The Verdict
Strong release from the group, especially after a two decade long drought of good music from them.
Getting rid of Tate was the best decision they ever made.

The material here is definitely a big step up from their past few releases, but that 86 minute run-time is PUSHING it. Thankfully, most of the songs are short, punchy, and to the point; there just needed to be fewer of them.
Rainbow Difficult to Cure
Rainbow Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow
Rainbow Straight Between the Eyes
Rainbow Bent Out of Shape
Rainbow Stranger in Us All
Even with rock's most generic frontman Doogie White at the mic, Blackmore still managed to cobble together a solid sendoff to his legendary side project.
Rammstein Sehnsucht
Rammstein Liebe Ist Für Alle Da

I love the fact that this band has the capability to release beautifully constructed, emotional tracks like Zeit, then turn around and stick a song with an immature title like "Fat Tits" on the same album. Absolutely glorious.

I don't know why I'm rating this so high. It's one of the most generic things I've heard all year, but it's an enjoyably inviting type of generic. It's like that one story your grandpa told you 100 times but it doesn't bother you because it's a good story.r
SkeleToon 1.21 Gigawatts Club
Dumb fun, but fun regardless. Way fucking better than The Goonies album they did a few years back.
Skid Row The Gang's All Here
What the fuck, I actually liked this? Guess miracles do happen.
Skull Fist Way of the Road
Much better after I revisited it. It still doesn't stack up to the first two records, and I miss the reverb, but the guitar work is killer and it is the perfect length. Give it another shot if the first listen didn't do it for you.

Nowhere near as good as the last album, but still a fulfilling experience. Glad they are keeping it interesting by expanding their sound in new directions. Tracks like Adderall sound like nothing they've released thus far.
Sodom Tapping the Vein
Sodom Epitome of Torture
Probably Sodom's most melodic offering. I understand why people dislike this one, but I think it's pretty decent.
Sodom Decision Day
Definitely lacks the band's usual energy, but I really like it regardless.

Tankard Pavlov's Dawgs
Temperance (IT) Diamanti
Never listened to these guys before; not too shabby.
Tesla Into The Now
Testament Practice What You Preach
Testament Low
The general consensus is that The Ritual was the band selling out, and Low is a return to form, but I feel it's the other way around. If anything this album deliberately sounds like Pantera worship, while The Ritual has it's own unique brand of heavy metal. With that being said, Low is still immensely better than anything Pantera released post-CFH.

The Weeknd Dawn FM
I actually love The Weeknd, but I was kinda dreading listening to this. I was worried the oversaturation of 80's nostalgia the we've been subjected to for the past 5 years would ruin this album, but I was pleasantly surprised. The style on this record feels less like a gimmick and more like a genuine attempt at updating that late 70's early 80's disco/R&B sound. I also think the fact that I don't have to call in sick for work to finish the entire album in one sitting really helped with that. I can't stress how refreshing it is for a mainstream artist to release an album without 100 songs and 25 bonus tracks.

Everything after the first 2 tracks is great, but I definitely wouldn't consider this a
masterpiece by any stretch of the word.

Bird of Prey may also have the worst vocal melody I've ever heard in my entire fucking
Uriah Heep Innocent Victim
Uriah Heep Conquest

Huge step in the right direction. The fact this album has the same records as the two

Visigoth The Revenant King
Voivod Angel Rat

Volbeat Rewind, Replay, Rebound
While I do wish they would go back to some heavier material, this album is nothing to scoff at. I can safely say I thoroughly enjoyed every song on this record. A pleasant surprise to say the least.

Alcatrazz V
I'll be honest, I'm probably not gonna listen to this. Graham Bonnet is an amazing vocalist,
and the main reason I listened to Alcatrazz in the first place. The fact he was replaced by
the undisputed king of generic metal vocals, Doogie White is a fuckin' sin.


I hate saying this, but this is actually kinda decent. Sounds more like classic Rainbow than
Alcatrazz though.

It's comforting to know that I can always look forward to listening to practically the same decent thrash album with dorky vocals every other year. Never stop doing what you do, Jeff.

By the books doom metal, lacking variation and flavor. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either.

extremely uninteresting.

This doesn't hold a candle to Purpendicular. Big lack of memorable melodies, riffs or hooks. With that being said, it's still more than serviceable and has some great hidden gems.

If this is what Deftones music is like, I don't think I like Deftones all that much.

Commendable attempt at a prog-concept record, but I do think the band bit off a little more than they could chew.
Demon Taking the World by Storm
Devil Master Ecstasies of Never Ending Night
Diamond Head Death and Progress
Dinosaur Jr. Sweep It Into Space
I only listened to this because Hedorah was on the album cover. The guitarwork on display
here is consistently tasty. It's just a shame they recorded the drums via answering
machine and J Mascis is perpetually on the verge of sleep whilst in the vocal booth.

This album has one of the most botched production jobs I have ever heard. The guitars are thin and weak, and I'm pretty sure the band's bassist never showed up to the studio once during the entire recording process. It's a damn shame because this honestly could have been one of their best albums.

Gorillaz Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez
A slightly better version of Humanz. Not sure why this one gets so much love, pretty devoid of anything memorable.
Gorillaz Cracker Island
A clear focus and sonic direction puts this above Song Machine by a considerable amount, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. As usual, the album has too many features, most of which are not crucial and add almost nothing to the tracks themselves. Skinny Ape is a fun track though.

Hallas Isle of Wisdom
I like their sound, but this got a little too proggy for me. I'd probably give it a stronger rating if the songwriting was a little less self-indulgent.
Hammer King Kingdemonium
Not bad, but suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. I don't think the album leans far enough into the goofy cheese the title would have you assume.
Hammer King König und Kaiser
Wanted to give this a 3.5, but this album features one of the most blatantly obvious instances of plagiarism I've ever heard. The song 'War Hammer' is a note for note copy of 'Midnight Sun' by Helloween.

I should probably give 'Dominion' a lower rating, but I had a fun time listening to it.

Not anywhere near Maiden's best work. Filler absorbs most of the albums running time, but the 3 big tracks keep it from being a bad album.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Butterfly 3000
Yeah, this isn't doing much for me. I can definitely say I'm not the target demographic the frilly, fluffy material this album contains. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but it pales in comparison to their last 3 records. I'd love it if they'd get heavier again.
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava
Solid King Gizzard release, but a far cry from their previous release. Not a single surprise to be found.

KK's Priest The Sinner Rides Again
Slight improvement over the debut, but still nothing to write home about. KK needs to revisit some of those classic Priest records and attempt to replicate that magic formula, because the songwriting present here really lacks it's own identity.

Really solid psychedelic rock, it's just a shame I don't really enjoy that genre. With that being said, this is much better than the album they released in its place.
Manilla Road Playground of the Damned
Manowar Gods of War
Mastodon Remission
Mastodon Hushed and Grim
Nowhere near as good as I remember it being. Comparing this to the rest of their discography, this just doesn't stack up for me. Mastodon really lost their bite on this one.

Meat Loaf Blind Before I Stop
Uhhh, it's not amazing, but it isn't even close to awful. There are some solid jams on here.

Pretty fun retro metal throwback record, nothing special, but it didn't need to be.
Michael Jackson Invincible
Michael Schenker Group Immortal
Morbid Angel Blessed Are the Sick
Ehhhh, as a non-fan of death metal this is just alright for me. Altars of Madness was a moody, atmospheric masterpiece; while this is just feels like your typical 90's DM album. Not to say it's bad, it just isn't for me.
Morbid Angel Covenant

While I don't think it's anything amazing, it does warm my heart to see veteran artists like Ozzy get their creative inspiration back so late in their careers.
Paladine Entering the Abyss
Pantera Projects in the Jungle
A perfectly acceptable 80's metal record with the misfortune of having the Pantera name slapped on the cover.
Pantera I Am the Night
Come On Eyes is a fuckin' bop.
Pantera The Great Southern Trendkill
I don't mind this one too much. It's certainly their heaviest release, which fits the edgelord persona they attempted to create for themselves over the past couple records.

Pink Floyd A Saucerful of Secrets
Much better than the debut. They managed to cram all the obnoxious ambient fiddle-fucking
to one song this time, and even that song is listenable. Not planning on listening to
this again, but I didn't feel like the band was actively wasting my time like on 'Piper'.
Pink Floyd More
I don't know what's wrong with me, but this is easily my favorite PF album so far. Probably because The Nile Song is the first Floyd tune I'd willingly listen to again.
Pink Floyd Atom Heart Mother
The title track is fantastic, everything after it is it's own special brand of forgettable.
Pink Floyd Obscured by Clouds
Not as good as Meddle, but heaps better than the pretentious dogshit of the first 3 records.
Pirate Hymn Explorer
Polaris The Death of Me
I have a strong distaste for metalcore and it's "woe is me" attitude, but this was alright. I didn't cringe once while listening to it, so I'd say that's an accomplishment.

An overproduced, over-polished power metal album severely lacking in the power department. One of my biggest gripes in how new vocalist Giacomo Voli sounds like he's going to break down and cry for the entire record. It has one hell of a closing track though.r*update*rMuch better than I remember it being, but it still isn't anything spectacular.

Saxon Into the Labyrinth
Into the Labyrinth is the first and only Saxon album from the 2000's that I would consider just okay. I rarely ever hark on a record for being "over-produced", but this album is definitely missing the bite of their previous 5 releases..
Saxon Carpe Diem
Definitely a disappointment for me. I LOVED Thunderbolt, but the material on here just isn't all that memorable. Very mild recommendation.
Scanner The Cosmic Race
There are some really good songs on here, but I'm actually shocked by how slopping the drumming is. This is like post-2010 Niko McBrain levels of sloppy. If that issue had been fixed, this would be be something special.

Underrated for sure. The boys sound tight as ever, and Derek Green's vocals are a big step up from Cavalera's. Nothing mind-blowing to be found here, but still one of the few groove metal albums I don't immediately want to shut off.
Sepultura Dante XXI
Sepultura A-Lex
Serious Black Vengeance Is Mine

Not amazing, but these guys do show promise. I think they'll be releasing some bangers down the line.
Silver Talon Decadence and Decay
I can tell these guys have potential, but I don't think they knocked it out of the park with their debut. My major gripe is that this album doesn't feature a single catchy hook or memorable melody. It's good, but it could have been much better.
Silverlane Inside Internal Infinity
Sinner Wild 'n Evil

This album falls to an issue a lot of bands were dealing with in the mid to late 90s. CD's made it possible to fit more content onto a disc, so bands just started cramming way too much fucking music into their LPs. Some good stuff on here, but God its way too fucking long.
Toxic Holocaust Primal Future: 2019

Kinda blows it's load in the first 3 songs, and doesn't pick back up until The Golden Horde. The highlights are great, but the lows are deeper than the Mariana Trench.
Beyonce Lemonade
Wouldn't have listened to this on my own volition, but I had to for film class. It's not bad, but there are some seriously cringeworthy lyrics on here that really conflict with the serious tone it's going for. I knew this wasn't gonna be up my alley, but I'm surprised by just how much I didn't like it.
Black Label Society Grimmest Hits
Black Sabbath Technical Ecstasy
I rarely ever chastise a band for softening their sound as long as the music they write is good. The music here isn't BAD, it's just insanely forgettable.
Blind Guardian Legacy of the Dark Lands
I kept waiting for something to blow me away, but it never happened. There isn't anything bad on here, but there isn't anything noteworthy either. It really does feel like a collection of tracks meant to be squeezed in between normal Blind Guardian songs.

Generic, bland, flavorless psychedelic rock with one really good song. This really does nothing for me.
Deep Purple The Book of Taliesyn
Slightly better than the debut, but not by a noticeable amount. Passable, but not worth your time.
Deep Purple Deep Purple
Not sure why people hate the first 2 but magically enjoy this one. Sounds the exact same as their first 2 records to me. Thank God this is the last MKI album, and thank God MKII is superior in every single way.

It's pretty evident nobody in Deep Purple had any ideas for this album.

It's fine I guess, but definitely their worst album in my opinion
Gary Moore G-Force
Gene Simmons Gene Simmons
Ghost (SWE) Impera
Side one is impeccable, and has easily some of the bands strongest tracks to date. Side 2 however, is pretty much irredeemable and features undoubtably the worst handful of songs the band has ever recorded. "Darkness At the Heart of My Love" makes my fucking skin crawl.

Krokus Painkiller

Not gonna lie, I found this album to be kind of a snoozefest. Just didn't click with me I guess.
Lacuna Coil Black Anima
It's a no from me. The heavily distorted alt metal guitars layered on top of clean angelic vocals,
paired with some totally EPIC and BRUTAL screams are just silly. I know it's their sound, but
their sound just doesn't work for me.

I stan Metallica's newer material, but this album isn't cutting it. The lack of variety is what kills it for me. There just isn't enough going on sonically to warrant that ludicrous 87 minute runtime.
Motley Crue Motley Crue

A record that's eclectic for eclectic's sake. Sure, the debut was all over the place stylistically, but not once did it sound forced or pretentious. Sadly, I can't say the same about this record.

I know it isn't metal of the confederate wife beating persuasion, but it's actually a pretty
listenable record in it's own right.
Pantera Vulgar Display of Power
The album where Pantera dived headfirst into try-hard edgelord territory. Thankfully there is JUST enough decent riffing for me to give it a pass. The riff on Walk is fucking terrible though.
Pantera Reinventing the Steel
This would be a 2 if it wasn't for the fact that Goddamn Electric is one of the few post-Cowboys Pantera tracks I actually enjoy.

About as by-the-numbers as a power metal album could be. Insanely weak follow up to Eternity.

I feel like there was a considerable amount of time and effort that went into creating this album, it's just a shame that I was kinda bored by it regardless.
Running Wild Resilient
Rush Caress of Steel
Sabaton Metalizer
Sacrifice The Ones I Condemn
Sadus The Shadow Inside
I can't be the only one who thought this was boring as fuck, right?
Saint Vitus Saint Vitus (2019)
Scanner Scantropolis
Scanner? You guys doing okay? It's not even bad, just confusing...
Scorpions Lonesome Crow
Scorpions Eye II Eye
Sepultura Kairos
Seven Kingdoms Zenith
Meh incarnate
Sinner Respect
Sinner Fast Decision
Not sure why I decided to listen to this band's entire discography. I guess it just feels good to listen to a band that has practically no fanbase; makes me feel special.
Sirenia 1977
SkeleToon They Never Say Die
"Alright, let's make a Goonies album." - Some guy from SkeleToon.
Slade Play It Loud
Slayer God Hates Us All
Better than the 3 records that preceded it; but fuck me those lyrics are next-level try-hard shit.
Slayer Divine Intervention
Stunning quality drop you got here, Slayer. Good on you.
Slayer Repentless
Sodom 'Til Death Do Us Unite
Definitely their worst up to this point. The last two records may have been different, but at least those records sounded like they were trying. This just sound like a band that's bored with themselves.
Sodom The Final Sign of Evil
A commendable effort to revisit their sonic roots, but not one I'm ever gonna listen to again.
Sonata Arctica The Ninth Hour
Star Eternal Atlas
Probably the most okay thing I've heard all year. The Earth is no better or worse because this exists.
Stormwarrior Heavy Metal Fire
Stratovarius Elysium
Suffocation Pierced from Within
Not for me.
Suicidal Tendencies Freedumb
System of a Down Protect The Land/Genocidal Humanoidz

I don't understand the love for this band, and I probably never will.

Fantastic album artwork, mediocre music.

I listened to this when it came out, and was so indifferent to it that I forgot to rate it.

had to grab a pillow and blanket for this snooze-fest.

Virgin Steele Virgin Steele
The early years of power metal were pretty rough. Imagine early Manowar minus the creativity or purpose.
Vision Denied Age Of The Machine
Visions Of Atlantis Pirates
The orchestral arrangements are great, but the songs just aren't memorable in any way shape or form.
It's like the debut, but not good.
Voivod Negatron
Voivod Phobos
Walk With Titans Olympian Dystopia
Warkings Morgana
Whiteabbey Words That Form the Key
just a gay little album
Whitesnake Snakebite
Slightly below average blues rock. Skip it.
Winterage Nekyia
Bland and forgettable symphonic power metal, with a surprisingly awesome instrumental towards the tail end of the record.
Witherfall Curse Of Autumn
Yeah, this really didn't do anything for me; but that's to be expected from a prog-metal record.
Wonders Beyond the Mirage
Y&T Musically Incorrect
Not sure what they were thinking with this one. Sounds like a budget Cinderella.
Yngwie Malmsteen War to End All Wars
Yngwie Malmsteen Unleash The Fury

2.0 poor
3TEETH Metawar
Accept Death Row
Udo's reunion with Accept featured one good album, one mediocre album, and one terrible album. This is the terrible one.
Alice Cooper Pretties For You
Alice Cooper Easy Action
Allen/Olzon Army Of Dreamers
What a boring little album.
Amon Amarth Berserker
Amon Amarth have never sounded so tedious. This album was a really boring listen from beginning to
Amon Amarth The Crusher
With a badass title like that, I wasn't expecting this to be one of the most unremarkable
melo-death albums I've ever heard.
Annihilator All for You
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you quite possibly the safest thrash album ever recorded. It's so utterly inoffensive that it becomes annoying.
Anvil Legal at Last
The one time I smoked weed nobody told me it was laced with some sort of hallucinogen, and
I had a hellish nightmare trip. Now every time I smell it I get PTSD.
Anvil Plugged In Permanent
Anvil Absolutely No Alternative
Are you sure there isn't an alternative?
Anvil Speed of Sound
Attacker The God Particle
The artwork is better than the music.
Avaland The Legend of the Storyteller
So fucking boring
Axxis Voodoo Vibes
When people say that the 90's ruined metal music, this is the type of shit they're talking about. Truly an abhorrent decade.
Bad Religion Age of Unreason
WARNING: The contents of this album contain epic Trump burns and mediocre punk songs.
Bathory Requiem
Sure, the production is SLIGHTLY better than Octagon, but the overall songs are worse. At least the dumpster-fire production on Octagon made it memorable.
Beyond The Black Beyond the Black
This kinda sucks. Such a nothing album
Black Sabbath Forbidden
Come on guys, it's not THAT bad.
Boston Life, Love & Hope
What the fuck is this? Where are the riffs? The guitar harmonies? Songs that actually rock? Literally every song is a love song and it's pissing me off.
Brainstorm Scary Creatures
British Lion The Burning
Wow, this was letdown. Production is thin, Steve's bass is pretty much inaudible throughout, and
every song is mindbogglingly generic. I seriously can't recommend this one.
Carcass Reek of Putrefaction
I hate this, but it made me bust a gut laughing on numerous occasions. Absolutely fucking hilarious.
Celtic Frost Vanity/Nemesis
Not a good album by any means, but there are some bangers towards the end of the record.
Cradle of Filth Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa
Bro, what the fuck happened to this band?
Cradle of Filth Nymphetamine
Why is this 80 minutes long?
Crusade of Bards Tales of the Seven Seas
Does anyone actually like this style of power metal?
Crystallion Heads or Tails
One of the most unremarkable albums I've ever heard.
Cynic Traced in Air
What is this nonsense?
Danzig Black Laden Crown
Danzig has never sounded less inspired as he does right here. Fucking snoozefest.
Darkthrone Goatlord
I can see why this wasn't released. A few neat riffs here and there, but most of it sounds like sloppy jam sessions.
Darkthrone F.O.A.D.
Run of the mill throwback metal record with some cool riffs, but awful vocals and lyrics.
Deep Sun Dreamland - Behind the Shades
An album so boring you will actually visit the location mentioned in the album title.
Demon Heart of Our Time
The fuck is this shit, Demon? The Carpenters sound hardcore compared to this weaksauce.
Destruction Spiritual Genocide
First and last track are good, and that's it. About as by-the-numbers as you can get.
Devin Townsend Empath
There are so many sub-par aspects of this record. There is consistently too much shit going on all
at once, and nothing ever comes together as a cohesive whole. Clocking in at a meaty 75 minutes, I
could not wait for this thing to end.
Diamond Head What's in Your Head?
Come on guys, it's not THAT bad. I was expecting an ear raping, and what I got a was mediocre, but inoffensive hard rock album.
Digger (DE) Stronger Than Ever
oh my god
Dokken Hell To Pay
Elvenking Reader of the Runes - Rapture
snooze central
Exodus The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A
Fates Warning Night on Brocken
Fates Warning Inside Out
What a profoundly boring album.
Five Finger Death Punch F8
Flotsam and Jetsam Unnatural Selection
Flotsam and Jetsam Dreams of Death
Forged in Black Descent of the Serpent
Pretty generic thrash, with a decent vocalist. Skip it.
Front Row Warriors Wheel of Fortune
The most nothing album I've heard all year
Ghost (SWE) Phantomime
Unremarkable, unwarranted, and utterly useless.
Ghost (SWE) If You Have Ghost
a collection of bad covers recorded in a Spirit Halloween
Gorguts Obscura
Everything on this album sounds like a mistake.
Gorillaz Humanz
A Gorillaz album in name only. A hodgepodge of serviceable pop tracks with a ludicrous amount of features, and severe lack of personality that made Gorillaz so special.
Gorillaz The Fall
The only thing on here worth listening to is Amarillo. It's inoffensive, and didn't piss me off, so I'll give it a generous 2 and not a 1.5.
Grave Digger Witch Hunter
Green Day Father of All Motherfuckers
I mean it's bad don't get me wrong, but I still enjoyed it more than the steaming pile of shit Blink-182 released last year. This is a masterpiece in comparison.
House of Lords The Power and the Myth
Iced Earth The Crucible of Man
The first half of this album is so fucking boring. 2nd half is a little better, but not by a whole lot.
In Flames Siren Charms
Journey Next
Judas Priest Rocka Rolla
Kamelot Poetry for the Poisoned
Keel Keel
Pretty sure they got an 8th grader to write these lyrics.
Keldian The Bloodwater Rebellion
A power metal band tries making a U2 album. It's just as bad as you think it would be.
Kerion Cloudriders: Age of Cyborgs
They tried. It didn't work, but they tried
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Sketches of Brunswick East (w/ Mild High Club)

The musical embodiment of an alcoholic skinhead beating his wife in their doublewide.
Petra Washes Whiter Than
Petra God Fixation
Generic contemporary Christian radio rock. Lacks all the charm and character that make Petra so special.
Pink Floyd The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
My Pink Floyd journey is off to a VERY rough start. I have a feeling this isn't the last
time Pink Floyd are going to waste my time with tedious avant-garde bullshit.
Primus Primus and The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble
Protean Shield Protean Shield
I really hate shitting on new bands that nobody's heard of, but this just isn't engaging in the slightest.

This shouldn't fucking exist.
Queensryche Hear in the Now Frontier
Boring, inoffensive, lifeless garbage.

A couple decent tunes, but there is a lot of cringe worthy bullshit that needs to be sifted through.

The pack should've stayed away.
Raven Glow

Getting pretty sick of these so-called "power metal" bands releasing albums without any power.
Saxon Saxon
Scorpions Pure Instinct
Sepultura Nation
Okay, this one sucks
Sepultura Roorback
48 minutes of nothing. My entire existence is exactly the same as it was before I gave this listen. I literally have NO emotions positive or negative towards this album.
Sinner Mask of Sanity
Skillet Victorious
This is pretty much just heavy metal Imagine Dragons, albeit with a couple decent songs. Think I'll just stick to Stryper.
Slade Beginnings
Slayer Christ Illusion
I swear Kerry King is a 13 year old edge-lord reddit athiest.
Sonata Arctica Talviyo
Starbomb Player Select
Steel Prophet The God Machine
Stratovarius Elements, Pt. 2
I refuse to believe they intended to release two albums. There isn't a single song on here that is good enough to be on part 1.

Suicidal Angels Years of Aggression
Pretty fuckin' boring. Never caught my interest once through its 40 minute run time.
Suicidal Tendencies Suicidal for Life
Suicidal Tendencies Free Your Soul...And Save My Mind
Symphony X Symphony X
Testament Demonic
This album doesn't suck because it's death metal. It sucks because it's BAD death metal.
The Offspring Let the Bad Times Roll
It's amazing how The Offspring couldn't manage to write a memorable song over the course of 9 years.
The Rods Vengeance

Waited 78 minutes for it to get good, and it never did.

Wade Black's Astronomica The Awakening
Waterparks Greatest Hits
Come on guys, this isn't THAT bad.
Wizard Metal in My Head
This is what power metal sounds like to people who don't like power metal.
Yngwie Malmsteen Attack!!
Yngwie Malmsteen World On Fire
Yngwie Malmsteen Blue Lightning

1.5 very poor
Alice Cooper Zipper Catches Skin
Andrew Lloyd Webber Cats: Original Broadway Cast
Terrible concept, terrible stage show, terrible story line, and terrible lyrics. If it wasn't for the competent execution and performances this would be completely nonredeemable. With that being said, it still manages to be somewhat listenable in comparison to the film adaptation's soundtrack.
Annihilator Remains
Wanna know what kind of albums I like? rGood ones.
Def Leppard X
Destruction The Least Successful Human Cannonball
Fuck groove metal, honestly. Pantera sucks, and this does too.
Disturbed Evolution
DragonForce Ultra Beatdown
Ultra Beatdown is the ultimate test of human patience. I genuinely like DragonForce, but
fuck me this album is insufferable.
Fall Out Boy M A N I A
Granger Smith Remington
Heaven's Guard Pathfinder
Holy Dragons Fortress
Nah man... this aint it.

Iron Maiden Senjutsu
What am I missing here? This album has no memorable riffs, no catchy hooks, no energy, rgarbage production, boring solos, sloppy performances, and an 80 minute runtime.

of Fortune.
Luke Bryan Kill the Lights

Megadeth The World Needs a Hero
The worst Megadeth album. At least Super Collider has Kingmaker and some tracks that are
fun to laugh at; this thing feels like one long dogshit filler track.

Thanks for wasting my fucking time, Pink Floyd. Hope the next album actually features rmusic.

I'm not sure I can comprehend this. Almost so bad it's good. ALMOST.
Shining (NOR) Animal
Slayer Diabolus in Musica
Steel Panther Heavy Metal Rules
I actually really like Steel Panther, but there is no way they put ANY effort into this one. Gods
of Pussy did give me a pretty solid laugh, though.
Stone Temple Pilots Perdida
What a boring piece of shit this is. Counting Crows sound butch compared to these guys.
Stratovarius Stratovarius
Tankard Disco Destroyer
Fuck it, I'll take disco.
Tenacious D Post-Apocalypto
Three Days Grace Outsider
Uriah Heep High and Mighty
Van Halen Van Halen III
Venom Hell
Virgin Steele Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation
The vocals ruin anything this album had going for it. I'm not even sure how Defeis managed to make some of these inhuman moans. He should have just stuck to the hoarse whispering he did on the previous release.
Voivod Infini
The past 4 albums weren't good, but Infini is the first Voivod album that I'd consider to be genuinely bad. This sucked.
Waterparks FANDOM
I somehow still enjoyed this more than Blink-182's album this year.
Whyzdom Of Wonders and Wars
Nothing about this album works.
Xentrix Scourge
Fuck you Pantera.
Yngwie Malmsteen Spellbound

1.0 awful
Agent Steel No Other Godz Before Me
Some of the worst vocals I have ever heard in my entire life.
blink-182 Nine
I have no idea why this is album is getting any praise at all. This album was absolute trash. Top
to bottom garbage.
Buckcherry Warpaint
This album actually hurts to listen to. Todd's voice on this record gave me a fucking headache. No joke
Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band Trout Mask Replica
I'm sorry, but this album sounds like fucking dogshit. I genuinely hope the legacy and cult following it's garnered is completely ironic.
Cardi B Invasion of Privacy
Cardi B is insufferable to listen to for 2 minutes; how the fuck can people take an entire album of this obnoxious squawking retard?
Clown Core Toilet
Witch Pussy is such a great title.

Oh my fucking god this is wretched. What the FUCK Glenn?

KeyDragon I Dance With Dragons
One of the most uniquely awful albums I've ever heard. Bafflingly horrendous.

Pure, finely cut, unadulterated, grade-A, FUCKING CRINGE.

I refuse to believe people actually enjoy this.

The best metal album ever recorded.

This isn't very good.

One of the worst albums I've ever heard in my entire life.

What the fuck.
Sam Hunt Montevallo
Six Feet Under Nightmares of the Decomposed

What a pleasant album
Tank Sturmpanzer (Algy Ward's Tank)
Holy shit. What? This was released? This isn't even demo quality. How could this happen? Who let this happen?
Tarantula Thunder Tunes From Lusitania
Nobody tried.
The Beach Boys Summer in Paradise
The Shaggs Philosophy of the World
Tygers Of Pan Tang Mystical
Quite possibly the worst "comeback" album I've ever heard. If the material here is what enticed them to reform, then they definitely should have remained broken up. Head-scratchingly bad.
XXXTENTACION Members Only Vol. 3
Zac Brown Band The Owl
They gave genre jumping a shot back in 2015, and it produced middling effects at best. Jekyll
+Hyde wasn't great, but it at least had a couple alright tracks on it, and 2017's 'Welcome Home'
was a welcomed return to form for me. However, 'The Owl' is might be the biggest dip in quality
I've ever heard from any band ever. After hearing this, it's pretty obvious they don't give a
quarter of a shit anymore. The song 'God Given' has given me confidence in saying I'm probably not
gonna give any subsequent albums of theirs a spin.
