I'm glad to see someone else liked The Crucible Of Man a lot like me. That album seemed to get a lot of shit for some reason. I don't think it's a top album of the decade though and it's not even close to being one of Iced Earth's best in their history. I liked Framing Armageddon a little more. Ripper's vocals were amazing on that. On FA he went from me considering him a no talent leech who only got a job because he was a Halford clone, to actually being a very good all around vocalists. Deffinately Ripper's best work.
The rest of you list is solid. I haven't heard every album on it but at least I recognize all the bands names on there. I can't say that for the vast majority of the year end lists people have been posting on this site
