Mixed in with some obvious BNR choices (bands like Neurosis and Alchemist can really do no wrong) are some surprises even to me. Dethklok?! I'm still amazed at how much I like that album. Kosmos is good enough to make me want to further explore the space rock genre.

Kind of predictable at the top, except possibly for Machine Head who is enjoying renewed popularity after a couple of lesser-received albums. In the 11-30 range are some nice surprises, particularly Blotted Science, Dethklok, and Rush.
