Poll coming up shortly...

Please pick a random number before reading, not that it will make much difference.

Often, you see a thread where you rate something from 1 - 10, and usually the most common numbers are 7 or 3 then 8 or 2, depending on what you're rating. In the thread on rate your life so far I think it went 7 8 3 2 in order of most common choice.

I'm wondering if there will be a similar trend in 1-7, expecting 4.9 or 2.1 to be the most common, then 5.6 and 1.4 (obviously in this poll that would come to 5/2, 6/1) or will there be a different pattern this time?

EDIT: 7 was chosen to see if what number you choose is because of where the number is in the scale, despite there being no meaning to the number or if it is just random.

to make this useful in another way, I've chosen 7 random albums and whichever comes top by the end of today I will try learn over the next few weeks.

It's only out of albums I have the CD of at the moment, and not all of them. It shows how good my random sampling skills were that I ended up with:

1) King Diamond - Them
2) King Diamond - Abigail
3) Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
4) Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica
5) Ihsan - The Adversary
6) Necrophagist - Epitaph
7) King Diamond - The Eye


I do have quite alot of King Diamond CDs, so they were bound to come up once, but three times? Also, I was really hoping 6 wont win for obvious reasons

If I had known the list, I would have definitely picked 5 or 6.



I wanted it to be random, although I'm very very slowly learning Necrophagist - Epitaph anyway. Verryy...verrryyy slowwllly.

I have Stabwound down and the solo for Ignominious and Pale. I have most of Diminished to B and Epitaph down but for a while my fingers couldn't stretch for them at all. Hell, I still can't do the perfect 9ths from the first fret let alone minor 10ths from the second fret in Epitaph.
