This is the listing of my personal collection and is based on Martin Popoff's 2004 book of the same title. Albums in the list are ordered based on rankings in the book. This list will grow as I add albums to my collection.

The master list is the result of an extensive poll asking heavy metal fans to list their favorite high-octane albums combined with Popoff’s original interviews with world famous rockers who reveal their own heavy classics and ear-splitting faves.

From AC/DC to ZZ Top and from Black Sabbath to Pantera, both headbanging chart-toppers and lesser-known gems are cataloged and critically appraised.
