A more interesting list would be the top metal albums of the 2000's... Shit, that would be a tough list.

EDIT: Havent we done that before? I forget.

you people are so fucking lazy

and it's only when I post the thread :tp:

Eh, it might mainly be because we already did a best metal albums of the 90's list (which I think I might have started, actually, about a year ago. :lol:)

refer to the title people. stop being fucking lazy. if it takes you a little bit longer to order it, then so be it. i'm not begging you to post a list, but if you do, do it fucking right.

in a bad mood right now, this is pushing me over the edge...my apologies I guess, but that doesn't retract everything I said above

My list is actually in order, I just didn't put the numbers.

And I forgot the album that actually belongs at the very top so now I have to go back and change it anyway ;)

Yeah I just noticed it says top metal. Static-X is however metal though. Take out Blink and Incubus and replace them with Carcass - Heartwork and either Statovarius's Visions or Destiny.

Don't get your panties in a bunch it's just a top list. My lists are usually never in order because depending what I'm in the mood to listen to this list will change all the time. Can't understand how an unnumbered list could make some more mad than they already are :tp:

The late 90s was easily the golden age of the genre. If you don't like it, that's fine - but if ANY metal albums list is gonna have power metal albums on it, a top albums of the 90's list should.

I don't agree. Hell, while we're at it I'd say Korn and System of a Down aren't metal either, but I'm not going to nitpick.
