    Obviously make sure to hit up RYM yourself and search your favourite genres.

    The deadline is indefinite. This being the year of my birth, I expect record turnout, and frankly, I will not close this until that goal is reached!

    The rules:
    - submit at least 5 releases.
    - first place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
    - feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
    - feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
    - feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.

    GNMD = General Non-Metal Discussion, so NO UNAMBIGUOUSLY METAL ALBUMS are to be included in anybody's list.

    1. ヤプーズ [Yapoos] - ヤプーズ計画 (Yapoos Keikaku)
    2. Scratch Acid - Berserker
    3. きどりっこ [Kidorikko] - 流行通信簿 (Ryukou Tsushinbo)
    4. Guns n' Roses - Appetite for Destruction
    5. Shelleyan Orphan - Helleborine
    6. Fibonaccis - Civilization and Its Discotheques
    7. Marillion - Clutching at Straws
    8. Blind Idiot God - Blind Idiot God
    9. Robert Turman - Way Down
    10. Ur Kaos - Ur Kaos
    Controlled Bleeding - Music From the Scourging Ground
    Swans - Children of God
    Embrace - Embrace
    The Young Gods - The Young Gods

    Approximately like that, close enough. Lots of stuff I haven't heard as always; the Smiths only just clicked for me last week and I could imagine Strangeways eventually earning a top 10 spot, for example. Lots of amazing music overall.

    Cool that these Swans and Anti-Nowhere League albums came out in the same year as I've compared them before. Kinda get a similar vibe from bits of them here and there.
