My list would probably feature a lot of the same artists recurring 6 or 7 times and then should probably be "Top 10 artists".

The same for me, that's why I did my list the way I did it, it presents a nice challenge and shows what other artists/bands I listen to despite that some of them have the same singer :lol:

I notice the sudden change in your list Liam, but just one correction:

It's just called Apple. Not "Apple album" like The Beatles White Album or Every other Weezer album that's nicknamed for the color of the cover. :lol:

I didn't know what it was called so I called it the Apple album. Because I knew it had an apple on it's cover.

Oh well. I've heard every song on it and know the lyrics by heart to almost every one. I knew (in a way) that it was called Apple... but I didn't want to be wrong and I didn't know for certain so I just put Apple album in case it wasn't apple blah blah blah.

But I love it. And Andy.

No prob :lol:

But just a curiosity/challenge, what's everyone's top 10 albums but you can only pick one band per album. I want to see what other stuff people like and I think 10 is enough.

Number OneAEnima - TOOL Image
Why? Easy. AEnima is just a plain our awesome fucking album. Keenan's vocals were in prime condition during this era of Tool. The songs spilled the brim with the sad truth about our country, our people, etc. Out of all the Tool records, I HAD to choose this one. I relate to it the most at the moment, seeing everything Keenan sings about are the opinions I write about in my songs.

Number TwoBleach - NIRVANA Image
Why?It's a plain out angry, angsty album throughout. I don't think this is Nirvana's best period of writing, seeing Kurt wrote them the night before, but it is definitely amazing music wise, in my opinion.

Number ThreeApple - MLB Image
Why?I would say "It's Alice in Chains" but I actually want to talk about this beauty of a record, one which spans from a hint of glam metal to the hardest alt metal you'll ever hear. Layne's voice in this record is, in my opinion, the best it's sounded in any of Alice records. I say that because in Dirt, I feel as if he didn't use it to his full capability, although his heartfelt screams in that record (such as "into the flood again" from Would) make my balls soft, his 80s glam metal type screams in Facelift are truly amazing.

Number Five Toxicity - System Of A Down Image
Why? So many many great songs on this album. Toxicity and Aerials being my absolute favorites. Some of these songs speak to me personally, as I believe in a lot of the things being portrayed on this record. Yeah.

Number Six RATM - Rage Against the Machine Image
Why? omgomgomgomg (i dont say that very often) this is an awesome record. Love their combination of metal and rap. And it's actually good.

Number SevenCore - STP Image
Why? Because Sex Type Thing. And Dead and Bloated. And Creep. Yeah.

Number Eight Ok Computer - Radiohead Image
Why? Because Thom Yorke. And Paranoid Android.

Number Nine Koi No Yokan - Deftones Image
Why? Because I love the Deftones. But for real, it has a real... I don't know... moody feeling to it. I enjoy having Tempest on repeat.

Number Ten The Real Thing - Faith No More Image
Why? Epic.
