    Directions: Rank Blind Guardian's 11 albums, and number each album 1-11. Ties are OK. Your first place album earns 11 points, your second place album earns 10 points, etc.

    Rules:
    • You may rank as few as 6 albums. Lists with less than 6 albums will not be counted.
    • If you list less than 11 albums, the first placed album will still get 11 points, the last placed album will still get 1 point, and the albums in between will have points distributed proportionately. The average points earned for albums that are not listed will not be impacted positively or negatively, so if you don't rank an album, you neither help it or hurt it.
    • If you don't number your list then it will be assumed that it is ranked in order
    At the end, the albums will be ranked based on their average number of points per vote.

    You have until Saturday, July 17th at 10:00 AM PST to finalize your list, re-familiarize yourself albums you haven’t heard in awhile, familiarize yourself with albums you haven’t heard at all, lobby for any albums you think are underrated, and lobby against any albums you think are overrated.

    I haven't heard the last 3 and likely won't anytime soon, they're too long and the style isn't something I wanna sit through. Legacy of the Dark Lands alone is like 2+ hours long.



    Oh yeah and shout-out to the Lucifer's Heritage demos. :kickass:
