    It would be nice to know what you agreed with :D
  5. Celtic Frost, To Megatheron just rocks...a classic.

    Deicide has got some cool stuff too...Once Upon the cross is a cool album, maybe not my fav..but is still cool.

    Carcass...i love everything these guys do...they always seem to have some really interesting stuff going on.

    I also dig the Cure and Janes Addiction..and of course..Primus.

    Wrong Forum but:

    Free Jazz- Ornette Coleman
    Time Out- Dave Brubeck Quartet
    Kind of Blue- Miles

    In terms of metal/ rock
    MoP & Ride the Lightning
    Fragile- Yes
    Hard to say for Rush... maybe Moving Pictures
    King Crimson- Maybe court of the Crimson King...

    Theres other for sure, like spome Zeppelin, or the Doors, or The Dead.... Must finish dance routine, no time to type.

    Holy s%^$ never thought I'd see once opon the cross named best album...but its cool I have that one. I actually think Legion is the best Deicide album.

    Since I'm listening to it now...the best album ever is Decipher by After Forever.

    Why are there no AFTER FOREVER fans on here?!?!

    Hmmm I wouldn't have put a single one of those albums on my list. It could likely be my most disliked albums of all time list, except maybe Primus. :D. When a band's focus is completely set on pushing an agenda, whether it be political, religious, etc, I find it hard to interest myself in their music. I don't think I'd put a lot of Rock on my greatest albums list although I listen to a lot of it. Are we talking stricly greatest Rock albums?

    Once Upon A Cross to me has everything one could ask for in a death Metal album and seeing how that is by far my fav style it is easy to see how I came to my conclusion. I have listened to it every day at least once for six years and I can say the only fault that I can point out is that it is only 28 mins long.
