The current format in that thread is:

Song Title
Album Title
Artist Name

Unless you expect us to read bottom up, that format has the Artist name last and the Song title first, something you said shouldn't happen:

Bolded emphasis mine, to point out that such extraordinary circumstance does not take place in the Now playing thread.

So i'll ask you again: Why is this way of doing things acceptable in one thread but not in this thread?

92.Bad English - Bad English


Place on original list: None
Place on revised list: None

I'm a Neal Schon fan, so almost anything he's apart of I'm gonna enjoy. To many Bad English is just another generic rock group from the 80's, but I love this album to death. Excellent guitar playing and tons of catchy songs. One thing bad about this record though is that they are way to many ballads (four in total), which is to much even for me. I know it's one pf bands hits, but 'Possession' could have easily been left off and the album would be a much more better one. For serious fans of melodic rock but otherwise stay away.

Favorite song: Forget Me Not https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=rOSUrenJByw

91.Black Veil Brides - Set The World On Fire


Place on original list: 61
Place on revised list: 56

Everyone here pretty much knows my opinion on this band by now, so I'm not going to say much about this album. I was really obsessed with it when I first heard it, I loved the catchy riffs and anthem like choruses. It reminded me a lot of the 80's glam metal bands that I have an undying love for, mixed with huge amounts of A7X worship. I don't care what anybody says about these guys, they are one of the better mainstream rock groups out there IMO.

Favorite song: The Legacy https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=REOqZii0cYA

90.Dark Tranquility - Fiction


Place on original list: None
Place on revised list: None

I discovered Dark Tranquility last year, and even though the vocals can be a little to extreme for me some times, the guitars are more than enough reason for me to continue to listen. I haven't listen to all of their albums in full, but I gotta say Fiction is definitely the best I've heard. I know most people say The Gallery is their best album because it helped start melodeath, but that album isn't melodic enough for me, especially compared to their newer stuff (I think Construct ranks a very close second). By no means the best melodeath album, but it's definitely the best DT album.

Favorite song: Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive) http://cps-static.rovicorp.com/3/JPG...er=allrovi.com

The last 2 albums were good. But Fiction is definitely their best album.

89.Alestorm - Back Through Time


Place on original list: None
Place on revised list: 66

Alestorm are one of my favorite folk metal bands, and I'm a huge fan of the pirate theme. A lot of people push this band away because they believe the pirate thing makes them lack to much in variety. I for one don't care about how much their lyrics have grown pretty stale, all I care about is how great the music is and it definitely is. I know most people won't agree here, but I really think this is the band's best album, every song is filled with great pirate-esque sing-a-long choruses, and overall the whole album is just very fun with lots of energy that will make me to continue to listen for a long time.

Favorite track: Shipwrecked https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=oTQz_mkluQQ
