Van Halen is pretty good but definitely not the best of the year. Not a bad list though. Most of the releases I dug are in there somewhere.

Yeah, none of the albums Green Day has put out this year belong anywhere near a best-of list. The fact that I said albums, plural, is a dead giveaway.

To me the rankings don't matter as much as what is represented in the entire list. I think it is very well rounded overall and they did skip out on a lot of great albums. But that doesn't mean its a bad list by any means.

Lol at the rankings (though Rush high up is pretty fine to me by a relatively mainstream publication), but there's some decent coverage on this list. Gojira

I'd have to say the best "rock" record of the year would be Monster by Kiss,best metal album of the year would have to take me some time to think about.
