Good list.
I never came up with a Rage list. Though they are a good choice for a disco ranking due to the length of the latter.
We have already discussed many of the details in the respective album threads.
I am gonna sum up the essentials here.

Where we agree:
Missing link best album (really not everybody thinks so!)
Black in Mind in the upper third.
Secrets in the upper third (!).
Trapped in the upper half.
10 years in the middle.
Many of their post 1996 albums in the lower half.

Where we disagree:
Execution guaranteed in the lower half (upper third for me).
End of all days in the lower half (upper half for me).
Avenger (Ger) - Prayers Of Steel in the lower third (upper third for me).
Speak of the dead in the upper third (lower half for me).

Good list.

Thanks! Never an easy job to make a list like this and with such extensive disocgraphy I guess all Rage fans ranking would be different

Execution Guaranteed and the debut are probably the ones could be higher in the list. When I add Wings of Rage I will also revisit those two. End of All Days and Prayers of Steel have their moments but as a whole they contain too much filler to end up higher.

Speak of the Dead is one of those albums that came at just the right time in my life and I listened to it death. Sometimes albums like that loose their glow as time goes but this one is still an incredibly well written and fun record. The opening Suite is Victor Smolski at his best!
And what do you call assassins who accuse assassins anyway, my friend?
