Anthrax - For All Kings
Solid. I like "Worship Music" a bit better, but both are good, as Returned Joey Anthrax goes.
Arcane - Known/Learned
I have never listened to these guys before. Sampling revealed some interest on my part, so I'm listening now.
Corrosion of Conformity - Wiseblood
You'll see "Blind" below. ;)
Dire Straits - Love over Gold
Not very hit-oriented in their catalog, but quite good.
Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
Literally the only thing in their catalog I like. Maybe the only album in this style, period, that I like.
The Night Flight Orchestra - Sometimes the World Ain’t Enough
Don't get this band.
Rush - Clockwork Angels
Gave this a spin last week, too. Better than I remembered.

My list:

Yes - Close to the Edge, Tales From the Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Going for the One, 90125:

I have no idea how I ended up listening to these after randomly pulling "Starship Trooper" out while practicing one night, but there ya go. All good, Close to the Edge is still the best of this lot IMO.

Corrosion of Conformity - Blind:

I should probably listen to more of these guys, but this is generally the one I reach for (though the very different "Six Songs With Mike Singing" is also a fave as is "Technocracy".) I'm not as big of a fan of the Southern Rock tinged Sabbath '90s sound.

Cynic - Focus, Traced In Air, Uroboric Forms - Death - Human:

Yeah, this hurt.

Rush - Clockwork Angels, Signals, Hemispheres, A Farewell to Kings, Presto:

An odd grouping. I feel like Presto is better than it's reputation.

Death Angel - The Dream Calls for Blood:

The record that should have been up for a Grammy when it came out.

Division - Now with more previous members!We're on Facebook, too.
