    Really Brad? You find RiB less worthy of classic status than, say, Andacht or A Journey's End? Really?

    At this point I don't dislike any of the albums on there but, there's definitely some that don't belong on a best metal albums list.

    A Blaze in the Northern Sky is not a better album than Ride the Lightning or Altars of Madness. I'm avoiding the repeat vote at this point.

    So I want people to vote on which rule modification they want. If one has a strong support by the end of the day we'll add it.

    1) No album can be enshrined without at least two people voting for it: 0
    2) Only one of the albums a person votes for can be an album they added to the list: 0
    3) People can not vote positively for the same album twice in row: 0
    4) Leave the rules as is: 0

    what the fuck is wrong with you people? Hell Awaits isnt even Slayers best album, let alone one of the best metal albums of all time.

    Slayer = Reign in Blood > Show No Mercy > Seasons > Hell Awaits > SoH ...

    Believe it or not, some people prefer the brilliant dark atmosphere of Hell Awaits to the mindless intensity of RiB.

    Hell Awaits is one of the best thrash albums, that's for sure.

    Also Seasons better then Hell Awaits? Really? Out of Slayer's first 5 it's easily the worst one.

    The proposed rule change should honestly restrict both voting positively and negatively for an album twice in a row.

    Based on influence, I agree The Mantle is too high. Based on quality and originality, I think it is deserving.

    Ultimately, it all depends how much one considers "greatest" to imply "influential". Personally, I think greatness stands on its own.
