349 Mirrorball - Def Leppard
350 Vulture Street - Powderfinger
351 Re-Load - Metallica
352 Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine
353 Live and Dangerous - Thin Lizzy

Best album ever made. A band at their height and totally on form. There's some debate over how much of it was live but the end product was outta this world.

354 Among the Living - Anthrax

First time I heard this album I was like!? Total Headbang and Total Mosh. Indians is my favourite track off of it. (Even though the intro sounds a bit like Pasage to Bangkok by Rush. )

355 Warrior on the Edge of Time - Hawkwind

What a band, even through all the line up changes they keep delivering. Without Hawkwind there would be no Motorhead. Chose this one because it's total "Space Rock" Lemmy on bass and Dave Brock the Captain in fine form. For anyone that doesn't know Hawkwind, get this album. Get stoned, drunk or niether, you'll love it anyway.

356 Counterparts - Rush

Best Prog Rock band in the world. They've done so many good albums it's hard to chose. Gone for this one because it's so consistent.

357 Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden

Not really into Maiden, seen them three times and they do a good show, kinda find them a bit too much repetative, kinda boring. However they are probably the most influencel Metal band since Sabbath. My favourite album of their's and a great album it is.

358 Hosianna Mantra - Popol Vuh
359 Desert Shore - Nico
360 Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
