No, I can count.  I can't really pick a fifth favorite from BT as I need to do more listening.

Rush and Priest were the hardest for me to choose.  Those would probably change again in a year.

Rush:
Moving Pictures

I'm afraid the correct answer is:

Hemispheres *
Moving Pictures
A Farewell to Kings
2112
Permanent Waves

I'll contribute with my Queen list as well:

A Night at the Opera *

Nah.  Alters is one of those "I appreciate it for what it meant to the evolution of metal" but not something I'd listen to on a regular basis.  Like the first Bathory album.  It's cool to hear them play tracks off it live but the musicianship is so much more advanced now that it's a bit underwhelming on record.  Blasphemy I know.

Nah, I think Altars is overrated as fuck.  I'd much rather take anything from Covenant and after than before Covenant.

It's interesting, I'm one of the only people i know who digs blessed are the sick despite it being considered this supposed metal masterpiece.  I feel like the production hurts it some.  I haven't heard the remastered version they put out a few years back but it might be an improvement.  But i'm with you Covenant is pummeling and the first appearance of the fully realized morbid angel "sound."  The first several tracks on domination are amongst the best the band ever recorded, formulas I just love how odd the riffing is.  And Gateways is amongst the most evil sounding records I've ever heard.  Heretic had a few ok tracks but was largely filler.  We won't even get into the last MA album  :ozz:
