    To each their own -- nice to see someone value it highly. For me, RR probably has more plays than any Priest album besides SWoD. I wouldn't say RR is better than Sin After Sin or Stained Class, but RR does get more listens.

    Rocka Rolla's in a different world. Just more along the lines of the Sabbath & Budgie stuff that I love. Never Say Die on the other hand is a band getting tired and losing their way/edge.

    I may be at odds when it comes to Scorpions too. I really dig the prog/psych angle of their first two albums and just haven't been inclined to even listen to any of their others in full.

    That wasn't supposed to be funny. I just figured the 24 hour warning he asked for was more dramatic than necessary. But if it takes such an ultimatum to have that special laxative effect on his list-bowels and help him shit out a list, then I'll start writing up the prescription.

    It's funny because it's cute you wrote month instead of year.

    1. judas priest - sad wings of destiny
    2. black sabbath - vol. 4
    3. black sabbath - black sabbath
    4. judas priest - stained class
    5. black sabbath – paranoid
    6. scorpions - taken by force
    7. scorpions - in trance
    8. judas priest - sin after sin
    9. rainbow – rising
    10. icecross – icecross
    11. the hand of doom – poisonoise
    12. buffalo – volcanic rock
    13. mountain – nantucket sleighride
    14. flower travellin' band – satori
    15. black sabbath - master of reality
    16. legend – from the fjords
    17. rainbow - long live rock 'n roll
    18. dust - hard attack
    19. flower travellin' band – made in japan
    20. scorpions – virgin killer
    made in japan is the only one that's new to me and may rise or fall accordingly. pretty horrible ranking this after the top 10 or so, not sure how to weigh up fatally uneven albums with amazing peaks (see 16, 17, 18 and 20) vs. more consistent albums that don't hit me like those peaks.

    I'll get to work on compiling the results. I'll keep an eye out for any last minute lists or edits up until I start posting them but not expecting any.

    I'll count @Wyvern's unranked list from my other thread here as 10 lists is a nice milestone and it doesn't knock any out of the top 20. It does help take care of a tie and give +1 to metal where the vocal is drunk and smoky, the sound is dirty.

    Oh yeah, forgot you posted @Baroque. Have you got a list to scrape in at the last minute? Sabbath's done pretty damn well already though so not like they need more votes, haha.
