1. A fabulous album, and I'd rather it be #1 than The Hunter.
2. Not a top 10 album, but of course not surprised to see it here.
3. Of all the technical death metal bands out there, Revocation is more appealing to me than most, for whatever reason. I just don't like the genre enough to support it being this high on the list. Did you people forget about Origin and Obscura?
4. It's nice to see Anthrax release a good album again. It's easily their best since the Sound of White Noise. But #4?
5. I've never liked this band. I won't comment against it being on the list because if my bias.
7B. Agree with SIT72 wholeheartedly. I'm not against this album being in the top 10, but it's probably here for the wrong reasons.
8. Super stoked this one made it. Definitely my favorite album on this list.
9. Nice to see doom getting some love, even though I wasn't particularly fond of this album.
10. I really didn't expect this one to make the top 20, much less the top 10. I thought its reception was luke warm at best. Who the fuck voted for this album?

2 of my top 10 in this top 10
3 of my top 20 in this top 20
4 of my top 50 in this top 50

Overall a well rounded list. Not overly pleased, but not dissatisfied either.
This. Every single fucking word of it, right down to the comments about "how many of my top x are in this top x". The only exceptions are that four of my top 20 are in this top 20, not three...and my top 50 isn't quite finalized yet, but there will definitely be more than four in common between this list and mine.

Also thanks to Manks for doing this again. I'll even forgive the comment about SubRosa because I'm sure you were either (a) trolling, or (b) off your fucking meds when you typed it.

My least favorite thing about this list is that it made Brad leave.
9/2 Chelsea Wolfe
10/16 Kylesa / Inter Arma / Indian Handcrafts / Irata
11/13 Windhand / Monolord
12/30 Clutch (?)
