EAR FARM's Last.fm tells only part of the story, so let's check in with the 10 albums getting the most attention at EF HQ at the moment. There's a song from each album posted below, and a link to purchase each on Amazon/iTunes (if available).
Rust In Peace by Megadeth - If you haven't already, I bet you're finally starting to realize that my love of metal is pure, real, and entirely devoid of irony. Unless you count hair metal, but let's not go there right now. My point is, I unabashedly enjoy really good heavy metal. And Rust In Peace is much, much, more than really good. It's a metal landmark. Leading up to, and after, seeing Megadeth live this week it has been playing nonstop in my world. It's a record that has aged surprisingly well considering the era it was recorded in; in fact, I'd say that Rust In Peace sounds much better today than Metallica's two albums (Metallica and ...And Justice For All) that were recorded around the same time. All hail Megadeth.
