My share of experime(n)tal music and other innovative stuff

I wanted to create my personal Top List for a long time and to be honest, I always considered it as some kind of cool Prog Metal, Avantgarde Metal mix. As you can see, it has become a bit more complicated. So finally, there are Unexpect and Pain Of Salvation next to Bands like Kamelot and Savatage. Also, some Non-Metal Bands got involved like Jeff Buckley and Oingo Boingo. But could you imagine how PoS would sound without Jeffs influence? Or what would have become of Mr. Bungle if it weren't for Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo?!

1. Pain Of Salvation - The Perfect Element, Part I
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Savatage - Streets: A Rock Opera
4. Dog Fashion Disco - Adultery
5. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors

*Album Of The Year (For Every Year In My Collection)*

This list is the best album of every year that is represented in my current collection. Some years were really hard to choose as there were many deserving albums, others I had one or very few to choose from. The quality of albums drops off pretty severely after 1992 in my opinion. Its a shame the list isn't more diverse, but hey, I likes what I likes. I am however always buying music from many different years so expect this list to change. **Last Update 09/03/11**

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
3. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
4. Septicflesh - Communion
5. Symphony X - Paradise Lost

I Like Big Hits And I Can Not Lie (Part I: 20th Century)

Stuff that got me hooked in the course of the years, from my very first blurred memories as a toddler to the present day.
Lots of catchy tunes, some cheese, very few flowers.
Songs that had a big impact on me and influenced my taste in music.
Stuff to let it all hang out, songs for campfire sing-alongs and soundtracks to slit your wrists to.

1. Queen - Jazz
2. Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast
3. Dio - Holy Diver
4. Metallica - Ride The Lightning
5. Einstürzende Neubauten - Halber Mensch

Faith No More - Best To Worst

Faith No More are one of those bands that were true innovators. There are plenty of compilations out there that cover the singles and popular songs, but the albums are so varied it's worth digging a bit deeper than the "hits". For each album I've highlighted the best non-singles.

1. Faith No More - King For A Day... Fool For A Lifetime
2. Faith No More - Angel Dust
3. Faith No More - The Real Thing
4. Faith No More - Album Of The Year
5. Faith No More - Introduce Yourself

Ace Frawley's Desert Island Discs

Based on the original BBC radio program from 1942 that asked "if you were to be cast away alone on a desert island, which eight gramophone records would you choose to have with you, assuming of course, that you had a gramophone and an inexhaustible supply of needles".

Pretty f&rkin' hard to choose just eight albums but I've given it a go. Hope it never happens because I'd probably get sick of these awesome albums after just a few weeks - then what!?

1. Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny
2. Faith No More - The Real Thing
3. Megadeth - Rust in Peace
4. Alice in Chains - Dirt
5. In Flames - The Jester Race
