There were complaints about no Iron Maiden in the ranks. Here was my reply.

Iron Maiden was not #4. Lady Gaga was. Bieber and Swift 2x in top 10 and sound tracks #31 and #35 (Twilight and Alvin and the Chipmunks) did better then these metal albums...wow. says alot about the buying public. UGH.

My take on the list?

-Dark Horse is a great album.
-Smack and The Oracle are beyond a huge disappointment -a very strange twist after IV. flush!
-Nightmare has a few nice songs but is overrated but understood in popularity given the Revs passing, if that is your cuppa tea (teen angst).
-Asylum was a conservative album repeating the same old same old, but did show some new direction by Disturbed so it is okay but not a run out and buy it by far.
-Ozz's Scream blew away most of these other CDs.
-AIC Black Gives Way to Blue is okay, but again not an exceptionally good CD. Sounded more like Cantrell's earlier stuff written with the band. Not very impressed.

That the full list contains Lada Gaga, Bieber, and Taylor Swift is horribly telling. what a bunch of bloody goobers we have in our world.

Eminem being #2 with Recovery, cool. Black Eyed Peas with #10 was a surprise. Haven't given it a whirl.

Most of the list is stuff my 9 year old daughter listens to. LOL.
