To write a book with the title "The 500 best metal albums in the universe" and among the 500 albums there is nothing from JUDAS PRIEST,IRON MAIDEN,DIO,DEATH,MEGADETH,MERCYFUL FATE,KING DIAMOND,EXODUS and many others that actually deserve to be in a list/book about metal really left me very dissapointed,however hair metal bands such as poison,britny foxx,bon jovi get a place among the 500 albums sometimes even twice???? really???,I grew up in the 80's, i love those bands music,but I would not put their albums in a list of the 500 best metals albums,only good thing about the book was MANOWAR 's "Fighting the World" got a place among the 500 best albums,a better title would have been:"the 500 best metal albums according to me Chuck Eddy", and making a list of the 100 best metal albums of the 90's does not even deserve a note,Mr Eddy just wasted a lot of paper on that.
