Post Rolling Stone's top 100 metal albums.....
They probably got some 'outside help' putting this list together. Some interesting choices, many questionable ones.

Saw that earlier. The older albums are obvious but decent choices for the most part. Some of the newer stuff is dodgy enough. Or maybe it's just that I don't like them.

But really though, if you are compiling the greatest heavy metal albums and including artists from the 70's to the present day, the likes of the Marilyn Manson debut have no place being on that list.

Barely half a dozen releases from only 3 bands from metal's first decade? :?: False list is false.

Right. The likes of Marilyn Manson may be an important personality by some metrics, but his very best output wouldn't trouble even a top 200 heavy metal albums of all time list.

Overall the proportion is all wrong. A proper list would be about 40% or 50% 1970s, 30/40% 1980s, 20% 1990s and whatever's left for the last 20 years or so.

I would say the lower number of 70's inclusions is pretty understandable rob. Six might be a little low. I would suggest that there should probably be a couple more but there wasn't even 40 or 50 metal albums released in the entire 1970's like you're suggesting. Not even close! The first six Black Sabbath records, Judas Priest's run from "Sad Wings Of Destiny" through to "Unleashed In The East" & Motorhead's "Overkill" & "Bomber" are the only 70's records that should be considered in my opinion & the Motorhead ones are open for debate (personally I've never considered Motorhead to be a metal band). Plus the mid-80's to mid-90s's is surely the sweet spot for metal as a whole. I don't think there can be too much debate about that.

P.S. Including "No Remorse" in the list in a total cop-out.
