    Krigloch made a thread like this in GMD but is being a poop about making it here so here we go. Choose one for each genre and add your own:

    Doom:
    Heavy:
    Power:
    Thrash:
    Death:
    Black:
    Folk:

    Feel free to divide genres (Melodic Death Metal, Progressive Death Metal, etc.)

    can't really answer this as it would systematically exclude un-pigeonhole-able albums and creating subcategories is a Pandora' box I don't even want to touch with a 10-ft pole. Like, where would Omnio fit?
    Functional tags: pain in the ass since 1968 (afaic).

    I agree. A better discussion, I think, would be could you distil your collection down to 50 albums? 100? ...and that's all you would be able to enjoy for the rest of your life.

    I often think about this, although not as drastically whittled down, and I'm not sure of the amount of albums I would need to be satisfied but it'd be a lot since it would span many genres. However, the thought experiment of 100 or so albums would be torturous fun.

    Yeah but life wouldn't be worth living if I couldn't from time to time reach for some fourth rate 90s nostalgia à la Crest of Darkness or Ancient Wisdom.

    Whittling down to 50 or 100 albums is not something I want to ever do. Do you know how many compact discs I own just of Danzig?

    Twenty-fuckin-five.

    To be honest, i could do 100. It would take me a while but it could be done. A lot more would need to be taken into account than just "man this rocks", but I could do it held at gunpoint
