  1. You still don't have that one album on your list that I really like. 40 albums and you still get it wrong even though they're your personal picks. Now how am I supposed to know if I really like it or not?

    I'm not going to tell you "cool list" or "thanks" since you forgot that one album.

    1. I don't know, someone naming one obscure album that hasn't been mentioned by that commenter until now is usually the norm, so I went with it.

      Oops, broke character. I meant to say you should know what it is!!!

  2. It's odd to see Greta Van Fleet and Paulbearer among the rest on this impressive list. Not bad choices at all, I really dig the GVF but could never get into Paulbearer.

    1. Rock and metal are my first loves. Country came later. You probably have to ease into a band like Pallbearer. Not everybody digs the slow/sludge metal.
