Lets look at the 2nd part of your list....I get that you like the genre but did you only listen to Metal in this decade?!? So much great stuff is left off... Here is a short list of notable albums that you left off that are top 20 in most books>
Combat Rock - The Clash
Synchronicity - The Police
So - Peter Gabriel
Tattoo You - The Rolling Stones
Purple Rain - Prince
1999 - Prince
Disintegration - The Cure
Murmur - REM
Have only heard London is Calling from the Clash and did not like it but I may take another swing with Combat Rock
Heard Synchronicity and that one has my favorite Police track but only liked half the album
Did not like "So" but did like "Melt" from Peter Gabriel.
I have heard Tattoo You.... it was OK, same with Purple Rain.... actually did not like most of it but had a few great tracks on it.
Have not heard "1999" ... may give it a listen...
Never listened to The Cure
I've listened to a bunch of REM albums but not Murmur.... I will definitely check that one out.
