  1. Chris is the easy answer, and the correct one. Fell on Black Days alone showcases that power and his ability to subdue it. Only Vedder comes close. Vedder is easy to meme because his style has been copied to death and stereotypes the 90s male vocalist, but he's adapted his voice over time into something many audiences can appreciate. Pearl Jam really isn't even what I'd call grunge, they've always been a hard rock band more in line with classic rock artists. And as they've gotten older, they (and Eddie's older voice) remind me of Bruce Springsteen, except they don't suck.
  2. Sin After Sin is where things really start to take off for me. I know SWOD is a popular one but despite its importance, it's too much of a Queen imitation to me. Too much of the 70s cheese in these first few.
  3. I've decided to give Priest a proper discography run. Will take me a while given the size but you gotta start somewhere. Rocka Rolla is better than I remember it being. It's not the Priest I know, but for 70s hard rock it's surprisingly solid, at least the first couple tracks and Diamonds and Rust.
  4. Haken is a hard one to get aggregate reviews for because the albums are all very different apart from Vector/Virus being similar to each other. You can tell a lot about how someone's tastes are with Haken based on where they rate Affinity, I think. For me it's: Fauna Affinity Virus The Mountain Visions Vector Aquarius
  5. I go back and forth a bit between Stained Class, Painkiller, and Screaming for Vengeance. Depends on the day. I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of Priest like I am Maiden, but they scratch the itch.
  6. These guys impress me. Richie Faulkner saved this band. I'm enjoying this one more than a fair amount of their 70s material, to be completely honest. It's not their BEST album, but you could take a few from this, a few from Firepower, and maybe one or two from RoS and it'd be a top 5 Priest album.
  7. I'll also pick Death Magnetic from Metallica, I'd argue their "late career" started with that one in that their tours had started playing it safe with 80s + Black Album material.
  8. Maiden's last two were fantastic. Pink Floyd's Division Bell is one of their absolute best. Foo Fighters' But Here We Are is their best since Wasting Light.
  9. I'm a software engineer. It's literally the hottest issue right now. I've enough clout to tell my boss to leave well enough alone if he wants to keep me and he doesn't seem too keen on enforcing it anyway. If I go in, I'm on a Teams call anyways since we're global. Waste of time.
  10. Much like companies with their bullshit return to office policies, they'll try it again once they feel they can get away with it.
  11. Five Guys is expensive, and my location started skimping on them (by their standards), in that they aren't dumping another scoop straight in the bag. Just enough to fill the little fry container. It's not NY prices making it $18, either, it's stupid high in Iowa, too.
  12. I'm game for Maiden. The top 3 are untouchable for me but 4-9 are likely to shuffle depending on how I'm feeling. Seventh Son Brave New World Powerslave Somewhere In Time A Matter of Life and Death Number of the Beast Senjutsu Piece of Mind Book of Souls Things start to feel a little meh here but there are some absolute gems within Dance of Death Iron Maiden Killers X Factor These have very few redeeming qualities The Final Frontier - they just sound tired Fear of the Dark No Prayer for the Dying Virtual XI
  13. I wish there was an official live release of the 07-08 tour with Dave. The YouTube footage I can find is night and day better than that horrible live album. There were moments where he'd actually sing in key.
  14. Balance has one, maybe two decent songs (Aftershock and Seventh Seal), but the rest is pretty bad. My one defense of Truth is that Eddie and Alex sound fantastic. Some absolute fire on there, but Dave is cooked. There's a few good songs. Beats Workin, China Town, She's The Woman.
