    Everyone has a choice. Some people don't like to make others feel uncomfortable with what they do, others don't have a problem giving it their all no matter who is watching.

    So are you guys going to promote Mort up to the new In-Crowd Drag Queen?

    @Nick1975 think you could throw together a Top 10 for 1997?

    Wow, I didn't even see that you had chosen this. Surprising but certainly not unwelcome.

    New discovery for me, only listened to it twice (it's also quite long) but I felt an instant affinity for it. Pretty sure I discovered it via HBB. The tech/prog bug has bitten me very hard lately.

    @HamburgerBoy Don't like Spastic Ink's debut as much as Ink Compatible?

    Not especially, Ink Compatible sounds closer to a proper Watchtower follow-up while most other Jarzombek stuff just gets kinda samey to me.

    Big fan of all of your 2 - 8 picks! Glad to see Nattens Madrigal making a list. I’m not sure it’ll make my top 10, but it’s definitely at least an honourable mention. I love the first 4 tracks. Second track probably my favourite these days, it’s just so intense, especially the last minute or so with that riff repeatedly hammering away.

    Never heard that Bruce album.

    I prefer the first Ulver album, but Nattens… is def great. As far as the Bruce album, I prefer Chemical Wedding over Accident..., but that initial reunion of Bruce and Adrian is absolutely epic, imo. I saw that tour in a tiny club in Springfield Virginia with Geezer Butler's solo band opening. It was fucking fantastic!!

    How in the fuck did I overlook Accident of Birth? Top shelf heavy metal.

    Taking the Queen/Darkside of Aquarius is as great a 1-2-punch as nearly anything Maiden did.

    Unless anybody else wants to take these games over? I don't mind but maybe people would prefer somebody else.
