Ah, yes, that old 20-albums-that-make-the-voices-in-my-head-go-away chestnut.  A metal board mainstay.

Truth is, I could live without 'em.  But... they sure do make my boring life a whole lot better.

If I had to re-buy my record collection, I'd start with these 20:

Black Sabbath - The Mob Rules
Opeth - Blackwater Park
Opeth - My Arms Your Hearse
Metallica - Ride The Lightning
Metallica - ...And Justice For All
Rush - Moving Pictures
Tool - Aenima
Behemoth - Demigod
Bloodbath - Resurrection Through Carnage
Alice in Chains - Dirt
Strapping Young Lad - Alien
Down - II
At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Spiritual Beggars - On Fire
Nevermore - This Godless Endeavour
Candlemass - Candlemass
Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman
The Crown - Crowned in Terror
The Haunted - One Kill Wonder
Sahg - I

Ask me tomorrow, and the list would no doubt be different.

So much great metal out there!!!   nana
