After reviewing my list of purchased and kept discs for 2001 (almost 100) here's my Top 20 based on the following selfish criteria, hours spent listening in pure enjoyment and no I don't keep a log [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img].
Overall a much stronger year than I first anticipated as I really can't find too many faults with these.

1- DEVIN TOWNSEND "TERRIA"
2- OPETH "BLACKWATER PARK"
3- TESTAMENT "FIRST STRIKE STILL DEADLY"
4- SILVER GINGER 5 "BLACK LEATHER MOJO" UK
5- MASQUERADE "FLUX"
6- SYSTEM OF A DOWN "TOXICITY"
7- EMPEROR "THE DISCIPLINE OF FIRE & DEMISE"
8- GAMMA RAY "NO WORLD ORDER"
9- JORN "WORLDCHANGER"
10-GLENN HUGHES "BUILDING THE MACHINE"
11-TOOL "LATERALUS"
12-ARCH ENEMY "WAGES OF SIN"
13-SOILWORK "A PREDATORS PORTRAIT"
14-DIMMU BORGIR "PURITANICAL EUPHORIC"
15-SLAYER "GOD HATES US ALL"
16-TRANSATLANTIC "BRIDGE ACROSS FOREVER"
17-EVERGREY "IN SEARCH OF TRUTH"
18-SOILENT GREEN "A DELETED SYMPHONY"
19-JAG PANZER "MECHANIZED WARFARE"
20-THORNS "THORNS"

Wanting a peek in, Enuff Z Nuff "10", Dragonlord "Rapture", Avantasia "A Metal Opera", ARK "Burn the Sun", Cradle of Filth "Bitter Suites".

Paul,

You don't know how happy that makes me!
SG5 is one of my favorites of ANY year!
Being the Wildhearts geek that I am, you can understand my enthusiasm.

Did you hear the Super$hit 666 disc?
If so, what'd you think of it?

I don't think I have purchased 20 disks from 2001, but I'll list my favorites of what I have:

1.[b] Ark[/b] - Burn The Sun
2.[b] Angra[/b] - Rebirth
3.[b] Kamelot[/b] - Karma
4.[b] Primal Fear[/b] - Nuclear Fire
5.[b] Sonata Arctica[/b] - Silence
6.[b] Jorn[/b] - Worldchanger
7.[b] Opeth[/b] - Blackwater Park
8.[b] Balance of Power[/b] - Perfect Balance
9.[b] Bob Catley[/b] - Middle Earth
10.[b] Jag Panzer[/b] - Mechanized Warfare
11.[b] Andromeda[/b] - Extension Of A Wish
12.[b] Evergrey[/b] - In Search Of Truth
13.[b] Silent Force[/b] - Infatuator
14.[b] Time Machine[/b] - Evil
15.[b] Journey[/b] - Arrival

The only other 2001 releases I have are:
[b]Zero Hour[/b] - The Towers of Avarice
[b]Amorphis[/b] - Am Universum

For some reason, I can't get into these as much as the others. Maybe I neeed a few more listens to fully absorb them.

I still need to get other 2001 releases, like [b]Royal Hunt[/b] - The Mission.

No I haven't heard the 666 disc, I absolutely love The Wildhearts also and hearing Silver Ginger 5 was a massive breath of fresh air for me this year. I bought both the Japanese version along with the U.K. version which is "remixed" and comes with an additional 72 minute bonus disc of live, acoustic and 3 demos of new material. To my ears Black Leather Mojo is a 10 and falls right behind Earth vs as my favorite.
