To give a fair analysis: I'm kind of happy with the list; 5/10 of my list made it. But my tastes are kind of standard as far as this board is concerned sometimes. I do think Watershed and Twilight of the Thunder God are a bit high, but better those than Death Magnetic or The Formation of Damnation I suppose. I am prouder than hell of the board for putting Cynic, Genghis Tron, and Fleet Foxes in the top 10, though, as the first two aren't that big-name and the latter isn't even remotely metal.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
