What's some of yours? Here are mine (don't ban me mods )
-German thrash is better than American thrash (exception being Testament)
-Janick Gers brings a lot of positives to Maiden (and some negatives too)
-Cliff Burton is massively overrated as a bass player (great songwriter/arranger though)
-In Battle There Is No Law is better than Reign in Blood
-I don't care for anything Dimebag has ever done but the CFH album
-Could never listen to Rust In Peace all the way through and enjoy it. Great solos and a couple great songs, but overall a pretty boring record. Peace Sells is better.
-Ace of Spades is one of Motorheads worse albums (pretty much every Motorhead album before it and everyone after, especially the 90s output, is much better)
-Everything Edguy has ever done is awesome. Fuck the haters.
-Dream Evil is awesome
-Black Metal IS (well can be) awesome
-Ihsahn and Devin Townsend are massively overrated (especially among ss.org fanboys). Both were good in their prime, but the solo material isn't that great. Strapping Young Lad is way better than the solo stuff, and the same goes for Emperor.
-In spite of lots of people telling me different and many people getting amazing results out of them I still think schecters/ltds feel plasticy, cheap, and lifeless (only a few exceptions to this rule).
-Although I am a huge Steve Harris fanboy, Bruce and Adrian have proven many times that they can write better songs than what Maiden is currently doing. After the meh-fest that was the final frontier Bruce should go solo again.
-Its a shame that Tim Owens, while being a great singer, never really got involved on albums that ended up being greater than mediocre.
