7. Ammunition - s/t / hard rock/hair metal
That much? wow cool
Erik strikes again!
Just out of curiosity does a 4th tier album mean it rates around 6-7 out of 10 and no higher? Just want to link it to how I rate albums these days.
I do not give numerical ratings, but that sounds about right. These albums are decent. They are worth my time. I don't know if I will ever listen to them again now that I am done making my list, but I am ok with that. That fits with my collector's mentality - getting the most complete list of worthwhile albums for my taste. To be perfectly honest, I rarely revisit most modern albums. If the bar for finding an album worthwhile was that I would periodically listen to it for years to come, I would probably buy 10 albums per year.
Into Eternity - The Sirens / progpowerdeath
This was poor in my book.
It definitely pales in comparison to their previous work.
Kobra and the Lotus - Prevail II / mainstream/traditional metal
Good but not as good as I
Huge disappointment compared to its predecessor.
