Classic Rock Bottom

Once again, this year we will do a Top 10 Countdown right here on CRB.  As each album is revealed, it will be added to this thread until we reach the number one album.  The list was compiled through nominations and voting open to all CRB members.  If you took the time to nominate and vote, I want to extend my personal thanks to you.  

Be sure and click the album cover to get a review done by a member of the CRB staff.  We hope you enjoy the countdown and the final Top 10 list.

Wasn't really all that close...

We share the same top 3, different order... and then thing go way different. Heres mine...

1. Toto - XIV
2. Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.
3. Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls
4. Billy Gibbons and BFG's - Perfectamundo
5. The Answer - Raise a Little Hell
6. Armored Saint - Win Hands Down
7. UFO - A Conspiracy of Stars
8. David Gilmour - Rattle That Lock
9. Pat Travers - Retro Rocket
10. Shooting Star - Into The Night

I've always been a big Toto fan, but this one just didn't hook me like their earlier stuff. Still a great album though. The same goes for Gilmore, just didn't have enough hook to make my top 10, but I did nominate both of them for other categories. I didn't hear Gibbons, but it sounds interesting. I do like The Answer, it was on the bubble if cracking my top 10. Nice list!

Thanks...  I really thought Gilmour stepped outside of his typical atmospheric zone and delivered something not expected - not totally but there are moments.  I still spin it.  We'll see how long that holds true

My personal Top 10:

1. Def Leppard - Def Leppard

2. Halestorm - Into the Wild Life

3. Sweet & Lynch - Only To Rise

4. Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls

5. Toto - XIV

6. The Answer - Raise A Little Hell

7. Black Star Riders - Killer Instinct

8. Thunder - Wonder Days

9. Neal Morse Band - The Grand Experiment

10. The Sword - High Country

Nice list! The Answer, BSR & Thunder would have been in my top 15.

Not even close.

I think that all of the lists should be posted.

1. Steven Wilson—Hand. Cannot. Erase.

2. Ghost--Meliora

3. Symphony X--Underworld

4. Muse--Drones

5. Veruca Salt—Ghost Notes

6. Raven--ExtermiNation

7. Def Leppard—Def Leppard

8. Black Star Riders—The Killer Instinct

9. Nightwish—Endless Forms Most Beautiful

10. Toto--XIV

Not surprised that you'd be the first one cryin'...

We had 7 folks that participated - TageRyche, Scandal2000, Mike Mills, Niels, Scott, you and me.

Steven Wilson appeared on 3 lists (Niels, Scott and you) and scored 10, 9 and 10 points, plus 7 bonus points.

That equals 36 total points.

Iron Maiden appeared on 5 lists (Niels, TR, Scott, Mike Mills and me) and scored 7, 9, 8, 8 and 6 points, plus 5 bonus points.

That equals 43 points.

Each album got one bonus point for each list it appeared on and 2 bonus points for each list that it appeared on at number 1.  

The only thing above that may be out of order is where the albums appeared on each list.  I've thrown them away, so I don't remember who put which album where.  But guess what, you can message each person and verify that I'm not falsifying numbers...

7 people? That's it? Damn, I would've thought more people would've taken part.

Nope, seven people submitted top 10 lists and eight people submitted final awards ballots.

Oh, and if you are wondering, Toto was on 4 lists and scored 32 points.

That's a bullshit response. Not "cryin'" or saying that this has been falsified. I just made a comment that I thought all lists should be posted.
