Since it's mostly not metal, this should probably be moved to general music discussion.

I think there are at most 3 of those that would end up on a similar list of mine, were I to make one.

I've given it a quick look-over, and my list would probably be somewhat similar, except for Eminem, for reasons that I will not talk about so that I won't offend anyone. LOL

Yeah, that's the thing. I guess I am too old school, too. I like the rap to have some clear rhythmic texture and not just sound like some guy talking.

I love the first song, and the others aren't some of Rush's stronger album tracks, I mean on Permament Waves, the shorter songs where way better than the longer ones

I haven't heard a Sabbath album that I completely loved yet, I only have Paranoid & Born Again, and I did reviews on them and only gave them 3 stars. I need recomendations for their best album to get

Yea Zappa is amazing...I don't know if We're Only In It For The Money is on the list, but if its not, it should be, and I need alot more Zappa albums, especially Apostrophe, cause I've heard it and love it
