Cal asked me to post this list for you all. He tells me it's got some real bangers in there. Also is supposed to have some hidden Deep State comms if you dig deep enough. Hint: You'll notice that there are 30 choices, all of them contain at least one letter E except one. Start there and count by 7 for the next clue. :D

Samsara Blues Experiment - Waiting For the Flood (One for you... Sir Busty of Busts and Mr Top C**T)
Thanks for alerting me to Samsara Blues Experience putting out a new album this year! I didn't realize they put out a new one as well!
Hey, that Samsara Blues Experiment album in your list is from 2013! They do have a new one that came out in November called End of Forever though. Gonna check it out now.


Ah bollocks. Thats the problem on Spotify sometimes when a band remasters an old album as it comes up as 2020! Looks like you saved face though as they did actually release a new one this year...

Super super nice dudes too. I discovered them as they were busking in Melbourne years ago n managed to get em onto a bill of a festival in the middle of the rainforest in the daintree for a 4 day festival , was my bands last ever gig so we were also in the artists camp ground area (despite being grossly untalented to those around us) and I swear over those 4 days they were just chatting with everyone and always trying to jam with anyone keen.

They were going to play my wedding too which I sadly had to call off coz my other half was what I like to call not suitable for me to spend my life with haha. :lol:

Paradise Lost was a decent album, but not sure it'll make many top 10s. Puscifer probably won't make my top 50

Surprised to see ocean alley make the cut. I should like them alot more than I do, just can't get into any more than a few songs. Just seems vanilla to me.

What was the Opeth situation again?

The reality is that most Fourtheye voters listen to the same pool of around 10-20 bands, so it's not real surprise that one with a member of Tool in it would rate highly, despite many varying opinions of it's quality.
