It’s Poll Week! The Results

Alright folks, the polls are all closed and the results are in. Here are your results for all seven band polls, as posted on a daily basis last week!

Our huge thanks to everyone who participated. You’ll have noticed that I kept all the results hidden through the week. That was so I could do a big reveal in a post like this one. Fun!

I, myself, refrained from voting on all of the polls this week. Why? I wanted the results to be driven purely by you, our beloved KMA Readers.

NB: Number of votes per album are in brackets after album titles [e.g. (5)]. In the case of multiple albums per rating, each album received the number of votes indicated in parentheses.

Here we go!

In Sum:

This has been a really fun week for me, watching the results come in (or not, as the case may be… sorry Slayer!). I hope you’ve all enjoyed it as much as I have.

And for those of you wondering about dipping your toes into the discographies of any of these bands, you can perhaps use these Top 5 voting lists as a shopping list. After all, those selected here are KMA Reader Approved!

Cheers, everybody!

    Perhaps Slayer could interpret it as the ultimate compliment, the fans just couldn’t narrow it down and thus did not participate.
    Thanks for the shopping lists!

    Interesting…Powerslave! When I was a young fella, Powerslave was considered good but possibly the weakest Bruce album so far. Sonically I find it a bit brittle. However the votes have spoken! Not that there’s anything wrong with it!

        I’m sure most people rate RIB at #1 but it’s just personal preference for me with their early stuff. And I’m not really that big a Slayer fan so I’m probably an anomaly!

        Actually, I just noticed my Top 5 is in chronological order so I guess that means they’ve been getting progressively worse since they started out? Haha
