I think you and I are more alike than you think, just on opposite ends of the spectrum

Seems this year the majority are happy with it. We're a music nerd forum, with tastes all across the board, so doing a top 20 makes sense in my books. Seems to me, that as much as we enjoy making this list, you enjoy complaining about it more than anyone.

If the lyrics and fart noises bothered you, then you didn't "get" the album


Also my thoughts:
#1. I liked it a lot. #1 may be a little too high, but better than Mastodon being the top album.
#2. I enjoyed the album, but this is WAY, WAY too high. This is coming from a guy who adores Mastodon too.
#3. My #1, upset it's behind Mastodon, but #3 is fucking awesome
#4. Enjoyed this album a good deal, too high though and way too overrated.
#5. I liked this album a lot, glad it made the top 10. Deserves it.
#6. I loved this album, I think this is a good place for it.
#7a. Awesome album, deserved to be higher.
#7b. It was a good album, no problem with it being here.
#8. I LOVE this album, way too low. Especially since it has been getting so much love here.
#9. I liked it a good deal, but I need to listen to it more. Glad it made it here.
#10. I'm pretty sure I'm alone here saying I'm glad this is here. There were better albums but I really enjoyed the new release. Touche Amore and Anaal Nathrakh deserve this spot more though.

I guess Cormorant saw this, because they linked the list on their Facebook

I'm not surprised given what everyone else's lists looked like, but I am somewhat surprised at those lists. Maybe my choice of Metal is just a bit too mainstream or something, but none of those albums besides Vektor and Warbringer are really worth listening to for me. And I find Vektor to be vastly overrated. I will listen to Revocation though, because I've heard a lot about them and haven't really given them a fair shot. The new Anthrax is horribly overrated. Yes, it's good, but it's way too long, and it's very front-loaded.

Oh, bullshit. The first 46.75 minutes were fun, interesting, and metal. Then the shit about testicles showed up...

There rest aren't worth listening to? Yeah, possible candidate for silliest post of this thread there.

No. It would be a pointless exercise if we all agreed. These things are ONLY worth doing when drawn from varied tastes within a broad shared interest, in our case "metal".

Bull and shit. It was like that when I arrived, and for about a year after that, then it started branching out more. Some people are either still like that, or still want it to be like that.

This right now is better.

EDIT: Also, if you think it's such a pointless exercise, and indeed have thought so every year we do it, don't contribute a list anymore. The act of joining in basically condones its taking place.
