Classic is classic Thumbs Up
Can't argue with Sad Wings...that album is brilliant.
 
I had thought about naming Paranoid instead of H&H (I prefer it to H&H), but I sais I was excluding proto-metal and Sab's Paranoid dated from 1970....
 
soooo I went with post-75 albums.
 
Maaan, I played that Sad Wings vinyl until my stylus made the vinyl so thin that the disc was becoming transparent.... I never found the same excitement my their other albums.
 
 
 
my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicted musicians to crazy ones....

I only had Painkiller, Angel of Retribution (under rated/under known?) and British Steel which I actually am not a big fan of....My younger brother suggested I try Sad Wings and from listen one I loved it.

We were gunna see the Judas Priest 3 year farewell tour but KK Downing has retired as we know....still gunna go for it but it's not quite the same : (
Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!



Listen to doom metal, worship Satan

I realize I am bumping an old thread but it's new to me so I wanted to chime in.
It is fascinating (to me) to read y'all's choices not knowing anything about your ages or homes or backgrounds. I love the bizareness (IMO) of some of the lists. And I feel free to say that because I am sure some of y'all will find my list bizarre.
Not in order:
Appetite for Destruction-GNR
Hell Bent for Leather-Judas Priest
Angel Dust-Faith No More
Blessed are the Sick-Morbid Angel
Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk-Emperor
 
5 that made me agonize over top five picked:
My Arms, Your Hearse-Opeth
Deicide-Deicide
"Them"-King Diamond
No More Color-Coroner
Slave to the Grind-Skid Row
