    It's not my favourite Saxon album, but it's a lot better than my other options for that year. :)

    I see several lists with live albums. Not allowed fellas. :nonono:

    Still working on my list with the maximum of 1 album per band. Lots of albums are not my favourites, not from the bands, but also not from these years.
    I don't think I could do much better (in my view, with my taste, with this combination of albums and years).

    It'll turn out as a a nice collection of bands that I happen to like, each represented with an enjoyable album.
    For 2009, I finally have something I'm happy with: Ahab's second album.
