Perpetual Change, Outcrier, and nicmos - you guys are on notice.  The current batch of top 50's is wrapping up at a swift pace.

PC, looks like you can start whenever you are ready since Crimson has posted his #1.

Personal attack on another member:
And *I* can't believe someone who has been a member for so long and should know the rules better is resorting to personal attacks on another forum member.  Considering you were already banned from the site once and let back in on a "be on your best behavior" basis, I can only conclude you really don't care about following the rules here.  Goodbye.

Jordan is actually DT's tax advisor. He just happens to do their taxes on stage, that's why he has that iPad there.

awesome!  Fire when ready.

I'd say you have at least a week or so before you would be up since Mister Gold is just into his top 10.  And even then you can wait a few days until you are ready.

composite top 20 albums list has been updated (the google doc has not been updated yet, getting to that later this week).

Some notes on the updated top 20 albums list:

- Metropolis Pt. 2: SFAM was the biggest point gaining album in the last update with 134 points and it overtook Blackwater Park for #2.
- Colors jumped Operation: Mindcrime as they swapped #6 and #7
- Awake made a huge jump into the top 20 from #23 to #11 as it scored the 3rd most points in this update
- Master of Puppets did well going from #15 to #10
- Terria and Animals also made big jumps to get into the top 20
- Falling out of the top 20 were Deconstruction, ( ), and The Alchemy Index
- Wish You Were scored the 2nd most points this update, but remained at #5

- Iron Maiden gained the 3rd most points and just edged Rush for 6th.  Rush gained the 4th most points
- Pain of Salvation and Led Zeppelin jumped into the top 20 while Tool and Genesis fell out
- Outside the top 20, Nine Inch Nails gained the 5th most points overall and ended up at #26

So as to not hijack outcrier's thread...

ok, finally able to look at this . . .   I assume you are talking about unique albums.  Here are the artists that have 10 or more unique albums in top 50 lists.

Devin Townsend et al - 15 unique albums mentioned
Dream Theater - 12
Rush - 12
Iron Maiden - 11
Opeth - 10
Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson etc - 10

Pink Floyd has 7 unique albums mentioned.  After I&W, SFAM, 6DOIT, and Blackwater Park, Wish You Were Here comes in 5th appearing on 36% of lists.

Rush's highest percentage album is Moving Pictures at 18%.

To get to the first Maiden album, you have to go down to 16% (Somewhere in Time and Powerslave).

Interesting... love all these stats!

jokes aside, shall I go ahead and put your name on the list to give you some motivation?  It will be a few months until we get to you.

I'm not going to be able to do my list. Way too preoccupied with work at the moment. Nor am I interested in postponing my list to a later date. But thanks for the opportunity.

Just let me know if you want me to go BH and I'll start on the weekend some time.  Kilgore Trout hasn't been online here since March so.......

Given my current state of health it would've been nigh on impossible from scratch but thankfully I've pre-prepared 95% of it all and so don't see why I shouldn't be able to keep up a decent pace once up and running.
