    Metal Magic and Metal Health over Shout at the Devil? What the fuck?

    Incidentally I think I'll follow your lead and start doing top infinity album lists in the future.

    They aren't over them, my list isn't ranked. Over course Shout is the superior record of those three.

    1) Metallica - Kill 'Em All
    2) Dio - Holy Diver
    3) Satan - Court in the Act
    4) Armored Saint - S/T
    5) Savatage - Sirens
    6) Slayer - Show No Mercy
    7) Anvil - Forged in Fire
    8) Mercyful Fate - Melissa
    9) Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind

    Kind of meh year, I struggled to make this list. I think I should take HBB's advice and fuck off back to the 90's.

    I did check out the 220 Volt self-titled! It nearly makes the list.

    I too am surprised I'd put Satan that high. I sat through the whole album again and was shocked by how consistently great it was. I still don't think "Alone in the Dork" is the greatest song ever or anything.

    A:
    1. Dio- Holy Diver
    2. Manilla Road- Crystal Logic

    A-:
    3. Iron Maiden- Piece of Mind
    4. Metallica- Kill Em All
    5. Slayer- Show No Mercy

    B+:
    6. Sortilege- Sortliege
    7. Black Sabbath- Born Again

    B:
    8. Hellhammer- Satanic Rites

    B-:
    9. Motorhead- Another Perfect Day
    10. Satan- Court in the Act

    Still scanning some of the records I haven't heard that you all have listed, but so far, not much impressive. Easily the weakest year we've done thus far.

    On the positive side, Show No Mercy is way stronger than I rememebered.

    What don't you like about Melissa?

    But yes, Show No Mercy is amazing (minus the gang shouts that appear a few times).

    King Diamond's vocals irritate me after 10-15 minutes.

    Are you wanting each grade level to get the same amount of points or more points for 1 than 2?
