By random I assume you mean awesome? If they're not White Widdow's best two albums (by a distance, comfortably) I'll eat my sac tonight. ;)

But yeah, I guess picking 10 albums from the span of 10 years can bring some pretty random results. :)

Imma get to this.

Just did a search for '201' in my music folers and it turned up 493 albums.

50 a year, one a week.

Probably pretty average numbers compared to others here, but I impressed myself

Now I just need to filter throuugh them and refresh my memory.

Will be a good exercise to refind music I really dug but ended up getting buried.
Probably a couple of compilation MP2 mixes coming my way :)

To each their own, but 'Crossfire's nowhere near those two, for me, personally. Awesome discography - I like all albums. But those first two are clear winners for me. 

From memory, I think you'd prefer my next 10 a lot more than my top 10. ;)

Got a few I’ve got in my shortlist.

 

Forgot the Confess album but that needs adding and considering .

Fuck me! Are you saying BBABH had your favourite album of the last decade?? I mean, yeah, it's awesome, but I didn't realise you loved it that much.

Yes, my furry little Canadian friend, that is correct. It's so close to perfect for me. A bit more balls in the bottom end, with some proper bass and heavier drums, and it would be close to a flawless album. I just love it - from start to finish it's just on a mission and doesn't let up. Makes for a superb album. I'm very comfortable calling it my favourite album of the last decade.

The Issa thing isn't worth going back over. Like I said in the year of it's release, I love it. It's kind of like a Vega album without the inevitable filler for two. A little lighter (barely) and female vocals, but every bit as marvellous as Vega have ever been, and in my lonely opinion at least, just a little bit better. ;)

And spoiler alerts, doods, but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to agree with your top 10's either, lol. It's just the different circles in which we roll.

Well now I'm even more curious to see it. I assume you're going to have some NFO and Cats In Space blemishes in there, but I'll be interested to see the rest.

Well here it is......it's by no means an exact science. I think I'm pretty sure the brackets of 10 are accurate but in those brackets the albums could easily interchange on any given day.

My top 10 is pretty much locked down though.

it's no surprise that this list is dominated by just a few bands as I do truly believe that there have been a few absolute standout bands who have been consistently excellent over the last decade.

So take a bow : HEAT, Work of Art, Degreed, Crazy Lixx, Vega & Eclipse - 6 amazing bands.

My band of the decade though is Night Flight Orchestra. Who would have thought a bunch of death metal dudes could pull off retro early 80s AOR so brilliantly. Pure Genius, and fully deserve THREE albums in the top 10 and those albums were my favourites in their respective year of release. Amazing achievement imo. 

So here's the list of the last decade IMHO 

 

1. NFO - Amber Galactic
2. HEAT - Address The Nation
3. Degreed - We Don't Belong
4. Work of Art - In Progress
5. NFO - Sometimes the World Ain't Enough
6. Eclipse - Bleed & Scream
7. Threshold - Legends of the Shire
8. Crazy Lixx - Bad Religion
9. NFO - Internal Affairs
10. Defiants - s/t

11. Boulevard - Luminescence
12. One Desire - s/t
13. Work of Art - Framework
14. Work of Art - Exhibits
15. Vega - Kiss of Life
16. Crashdiet - Generation Wild
17. Defiants - Zukusho
18. HEAT - Tearing Down The Walls
19. Degreed - Dead but not Forgotten
20. Eclipse - Monementum

21. Crazy Lixx - Ruff Justice
22. Vega - Stereo Messiah
23. White Widdow - Crossfire
24. Seven - 7
25. Toby Hitchcock - Mercury Down
26. Vega - What the Hell
27. WET - Rise Up
28. Destine - Illuminate
29. Destine - Forevermore
30. Midnite City - s/t

31. Treat - Coup de Grace
32. Steel Panther - Balls Out
33. Cats in Space - Too Many God's
34. Degreed - Life Loss Love
35. Eclipse - Armageddise
36. Degreed - s/t
37. First Signal - s/t
38. Pretty Maids - Pandemonium
39. HEAT - Into The Great Unknown
40. Harry Hess - Living in Yesterday

41. Don Vedda - s/t
42. Revolution Saints - Light in the Dark
43. HEAT - Freedom Rock
44. Crazy Lixx - Forever
45. Cats in Space - Narnia
46. Vega - Who We Are
47. The Magnificent - s/t
48. Wigelius - Tabula Rasa
49. Harem Scarem - United
50. Dynazty - Knock You Down

51. De La Cruz - Street Level
52. Reckless Love - s/t
53. Hardcore Superstar - Split Your Lip
54. WET - Earthrage
55. Midnite City - Neighbourhood
56. Tremonti - All I Was
57. JJS - Damage Control
58. Groundbreaker - s/t
59. Jimi Jamison - Never Too Late
60. Terry Brock - Diamond Blue
