The criteria for a Coldie is an album that has dramatically upset fans of the band and not, as in Nosferatwo's case, fans of Elton John.

Besides, apart from Iced Earth (whose album was well received) how many of those bands, have any fan base left to upset anyway? Quiet Riot? Cover band. Haven't been relevant since 1984 and even then they were just an inferior Slade clone who only existed because US audiences couldn't handle the real thing. Pain of Salvation? Cover band. Haven't done anything of note since 2002. Adrenaline Mob? More famous for the musicians they've killed than the actual music. Dead Cross? Isn't this band, like, 5 minutes old? Danzig? Irrelevant since the early 90's. Steel Panther? Disqualified. Not a real band.

See? Nosferatwo's list is much ado about nothing.
The only album of recent months to cause a double take is the new Steven Wilson album "To The Bone", which . . . is generally not Casual's target.
