Kerrang has always sucked balls

http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/kerrang.html#1982

Just look at some of these album of the year lists they've done from the 80's (their "prime")

Kerrang! Albums Of The Year 1985

1. Bryan Adams - Reckless
2. Kate Bush - Hounds Of Love
(do you really need to see anything after this)?

Not a single Iron Maiden, Metallica or Mercyful Fate album among this tripe. Meanwhile Prince is #2 (I have nothing against Purple Rain...but this is supposed to a metal list!), and you also have John Mellancamp, Aldo Nova, and Jim Dandy? Bullshit. I realize that the rock/metal lines were more blurred in the 80's, but Allah shitty dick wiping Muhammed have some standards! Any credibility this piss rag had clearly died with the end of the NWOBHM.

Meh. I ignore everything they do, or have ever done. Same goes for Metal Hammer.

Haha that funny looking guy who was in the VH1 metal specials?

I thought the same thing the other day, when I saw that this years list had Linkin Park at 19 and Electric Wizard at 20. Also, Death Magnetic was #1 in 2008. That is all.

I used to get Kerrang from my local record shop back in the mid to late 80's.

It was my favorite metal mag.

Sure it had some fluff but it had good album and concert reviews. I had to get my metal news and review fix from somewhere, pre-internet.

The only metal mag I kinda like is decibel. Revolver is the worst.

I wouldn't have so much of a problem with the fluff if they weren't missing some key albums. For instance Piece of Mind- I've gone on record saying that its definitely the most overrated of Maiden's classic albums, but I'd still have it for the top 10 albums of 1983.
