You know it. You want it. It's Back: Guess Dan's Top 5 of 2020!

Recommended Posts

Why stop an annoying tradition? Basically, the community tries to "home in" on my top 5 of 2020 and their order.

Sadly, first prize of a tongue bath from Geoff will have to be done via Zoom this year due to COVID protocols.

The contest goes like this:

1. Someone posts their guess in 1,2,3,4,5 order.

2. I reply saying how many of the 5 guessed albums are correct, and also how many are in correct spots (without stating explicitly WHICH ones are correct).

3. Next person guesses based upon prior guesses and my feedback.

4. Only one attempt per person... unless we run out of active members participating.

Enjoy... or not. Whatever. :lol:

5. Devicious

4. Wildness - Ultimate Demise

3 out of 5 correct, with 2 in their correct spot.

So for those playing at home, I believe this means that Dynazty and Palace are in their correct spots, and Devicious is either 3 or 4. Good luck picking the rest. :unsure:

Really? Oh well, it's 11:30pm and I'm a few more than several beers in, so I might be a tad off. :wacko:

But perhaps you should re-check your list, as I think I am correct? 

Oh, okay. So Kansas is #5. And Devicious isn't in there? So one of Wildness or One Desire is in there? 

First 2 definitely spot on - Palace and Dynazty. Odd choice. One great album, one bag of testicle waste. ;)

I don't know why you're so rough on Palace. You've basically said it's garbage everywhere on this site, but if I'm not mistaken it was in your top 5 albums of the year and you were very pleasant to it in that thread. Get your story straight, creep. ;)

Damn... Crazysam must be psychic! 5 out of 5 correct, with 3 out of 5 in their correct slots. That's about as close to a win out of the blue as we've ever seen, so I'm calling it.

Just swap #3 and #4.

  1. Palace
  2. Dynazty
  3. Unleash the Archers
  4. H.E.A.T.
  5. One Desire

    • Coheed and Cambria - Love Murder One. I posted this track in another thread today, but I had to post it here. I can't stop listening to it. These guys definitely lean towards the more Melodic side of Modern Rock. Great stuff!    
    • Kind of where I'm at too.  I like a few tunes here and songs are okay but alot of the songs sort of feel samey.  I think I've put 3 songs in my playlist from it.  
    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)  
    • Literally just added this one to the main site: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=433&CDName=30 Coming In Hot&Letter=A

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
