Default MB Metal Classics

Hey, if there's one thing I'm good at, it's stealing other people's ideas!

So you all know the deal: Blank's "MB Classics" thread seems to have stalled. How about we try it with metal albums only? Tell you what: to open it up just a little, and not exclude those who have no real interest in metal, let's say we include albums that could be more considered hard rock than metal. If an album or albums look to be on shaky ground for inclusion we can discuss it, but the final decision will be mine.

So submit your five metal albums you want to discuss and we'll see which ones end up being voted classics. I'm not sure how Blank was intending to run his thread, but for this one I'll select one randomly each week for voting. After one week voting will close and either pronounced a classic or not, but you can keep discussing it after that point, just no more votes. As in Blank's rules, talk a little about the album or your vote won't count.

Minimum of three people voting required on every album, anything over 8 will be considered having made it as a classic.

Note: **** RYM. I ain't doin' no list. All I'll do is colour-code the albums in the list. See if you can guess what means what. Give up? Green = made it to classic. Red = Didn't make the cut. Blue = In play at the moment. Black = Yet to be picked for a vote. Simples, yes?

So, who's first? Mine are of course first here below, but that doesn't mean they'll be picked first necessarily.

Spoilering this now...

Let's just revamp the other one, having a metal specific one is a bit redundant given how much metal is already on that list.

I'm going to suggest that we've already discussed NSV to death (no pun intended) on the other thread. Is there any point doing it again? I don't mind; I just don't see how much more can be said about it in this context. If you want to keep it that's fine, if you'd rather replace it with another, go ahead. I'll add the four others for now and you can let me know what you decide.

Well, not really. People chose the albums on the other one based on one criterion, this is another. This is not just the albums you think are classics, but the metal/hard rock ones you would consider. That could weigh on the decision of members as to what to include/exclude, had that been the original point of Blank's thread. Anyway, let's stick with this and see how many people are interested, and if it's worth doing. Who knows? Blank may want to resurrect his thread at some time, so I'd rather not just take it over or take it apart.

Okay, so we now have twenty albums. Do you guys want to wait till a few other people have weighed in, or get this going asap? I can just choose one at random to get the ball rolling, but if you'd rather wait we can give it a few hours/days. Watcha think?
