My fave album of all time. Enough technical chops to keep it interest But still very catchy.

Not to mention the Polaris outro they close the album with is f’ing sick.
Rust in Peace come in at #4 on my top 50,000 albums of all time list, behind.....

1. Acid Bath "When the Kite String Pops" (1994)
2. Slayer "Reign in Blood" (1986)
3. Black Sabbath "Paranoid" (1970)

"Lonely Boy" off The Black Keys El Camino album gets it going

"Walk on the Ocean" from Toad the Wet Sprocket's Fear album is a great start to one of my favorite albums from my college days

"Drunken Lullabies" from the album of the same name by Flogging Molly rips the bandaid off right from the start.

Led Zeppelin IV starts with "Black Dog" on Side One and "Misty Mountain Hop", Side 2.


Makes me think we could expand this topic to best combo of side 1/side 2 openers, for us old-school LP-oriented geezers.

"Let's Go" and "Night Spots" comes to mind for The Cars "Candy-O." ... I wouldn't put Let's Go as a go-to starter by itself, but in tandem, it's a different story.

"Hells Bells" and "Back in Black" another 1/2 killer.
