    A great year no doubt but I was hoping for a late 90s or forward year for some variety...

    Fully agreed. One could say that 1988 is (nearly) an H.P. Lovecraft-year for me. It was the time where I bought about one album per week. By the way, I just noticed that RYM listed Drifter's "Nowhere to Hide" as a 1988-release, whereas it was in fact released in 1989. Drifter's debut "Reality Turns to Dust" was released in 1988, though (and not in 1987, as stated on RYM).

    This is my definite 1988 list and I will not change it at any point;

    1. Adramelch - Irae Melanox
    2. Celtic Frost - Cold Lake
    3. The Roxx - Watch Us Cum
    4. Toy Röz - Toy Röz
    5. Poison - Open Up and Say... Ahh!
    6. Testament - Testament to TB's Shit Taste
    7. Krzysztof Penderecki - Threnody for TB's Lost Balls
    8. The TB Sucks Orchestra - s/t
    9. Not An Actual Band - Not An Actual Album
    10. Remember That Time TB Inflated His Top 10 With Random Glam Albums He's Never Even Listened To In A Poorly Veiled Attempt To Circumvent The 5 Album-Minimum Rule Because He Needs His Opinions To Be Validated So Much That The Idea Of The Results Of A Community Poll Not Reflecting His Opinions Is Existentially Terrifying To Him? - s/t
