    1. Starcraft Soundtrack
    2. Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Soundtrack
    3. Unreal Soundtrack
    4. Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny Soundtrack
    5. Thinking Plague - In Extremis
    6. Cows - Sorry in Pig Minor
    7. Cho Ren Sha Soundtrack
    8. The 90 Day Men - 1975-1977-1998
    9. Mayfair - Fastest Trip to Cyber-Town
    10. Refused - The Shape of Punk to Come
    Basement - Underneath

    I've got lots of stuff I want to listen to or relisten to but I always forget to before the deadline so whatevs. Much better year for stuff in the general noise rock/math rock/experimental -core range than it was for metal.

    EDIT: Forgot what on many days could be my favorite vidya soundtrack of all time. Great year for games too, kinda obviously. I've got the Half-Life soundtrack 4-starred on RYM but since I appreciate it much more in-game than out of game I'll exclude it from here.

    God damn I just can't get satisfied with my ordering.

    StarCraft soundtrack rules I agree. Uber nostalgia. No love for Fugazi's End Hits HBB?

    No you're thinking of Jizz Jack Rabbit, it's a completely different soundtrack

    Haven't heard End Hits in full, what I had heard didn't grab me but I'll get around to finishing their discography eventually. Not a fan of Red Medicine either though, Repeater is my favorite by a good margin of what I know.

    EDIT: Actually, haven't heard End Hits at all, I had the cover art of The Argument in my mind.

    I'm definitely more of a Steady Diet of Nothing fan but Repeater is 2nd best.

    Steady Diet of Nothing is definitely good, don't know why it seems to be universally considered the weakest. Less gimmicks, more twangy heavy grooves. My favorite production of the first four as well.
