Post your picks. Top 5. Accept thread got me thinking about this. Here's mine. These are bar none the biggest, hookiest, most anthemic choruses ever written. I'll make a special addendum and say that though Iron Maiden is my all time favorite band, they aren't considered here. Because I don't really consider them music, and I don't think of their songs in terms of "wow, that chorus has the biggest hooks ever", it's more "this is the meaning of life".
^Three huge ones on this record. Title track isn't even one of the biggest. Losing More than You Ever Had is one of the finest metal songs ever written.
^The most brilliant pop metal album of all time. Everything about this is legendary, including the cover.
^The finest metal album ever written. If you haven't heard the whole thing you are a poseur.
^Same deal as Mindcrime. If you don't know this whole album. GTFO. Jam packed with legendary choruses. The deep cuts too.
^Many people aren't cool enough to own this record because of weak concerns about "metal legitimacy". Fuck them. A couple more songs and this could have been a double album. Ever chorus will fuck your shit up. 13 fucking songs worth of it. Most metal bands can't manage 13 catchy songs in an entire career.
^Got to the end of my 5 item list and realized leaving this off would be a fucking crime.
Drift is right up there. So much awesome on this album.
