    It's not Metal according to Lemmy. It's in the non-Metal part of the list. See post 22.

    Maybe to Lemmy but it was Metal at the time to the rest of us.

    Perhaps you can wait until I get to 1984 to see what I post, or make your own thread.

    1981:

    8. Rush (Toronto,ON)- Moving Pictures (Anthem/Mercury) These days many will say Rush was not a Metal band. Much of their music isn't, but this album was pretty heavy, more so than many of the other Metal albums of the year. I'm guessing in 1981 that many Metal listeners were listening to Rush. I decided to include it as a Metal album.

    I think MSG is the proper title. That's what I've always called it anyway.

    In hindsight, I believe the band was still called The Michael Schenker Group and the album was called MSG. On the next album, Assault Attack, the band used both the full name and MSG on the cover.

    The first one was kind of like a solo album even though it says "group". There really was no band when they made it. It's just Schenker and Barden and some studio guys. So I think with the second one they were trying to establish the idea of MSG as a band..kind of relaunching it. So it kind of is a second self-titled album...but not exactly.

    "Horsemen of the Apocalypse" The way the keyboards are used is going to sound strange for a Metal band.
