Tsunami Edizioni - The last three remaining books

Post by Pierre » Sat Apr 01, 2017 8:35 pm

First of all, it seems I got some people worried because of my inactivity and I just want to reassure them: everything's fine on my end. I'm just very tired right now and I'm taking time off the Internet; it's very good for my nerves, especially in our tense period on the political front here in France.

Anyway, now back to the topic at hand: either I'm a big idiot or these were recently added to the editor's website, as they aren't indicated on the site itself, but samples for the last three books in the "The 100 greatest albums" are actually available - I just add to tweak the weblinks to reach them here:

http://www.tsunamiedizioni.com/--00-PDF/NWOBHM.pdf
http://www.tsunamiedizioni.com/--00-PDF/THRASH.pdf
http://www.tsunamiedizioni.com/--00-PDF/AOR.pdf

So I'm now going to post the last remaining lists from the editor: The 100 best NWOBHM albums, The 100 best Thrash Metal albums and The 100 best AOR albums. These should be the very last metal lists I'll post; I know of four others lists which I've been completely unable to find despite my best efforts, and I don't want to buy physical copies of these, so this will be the end. Unless I have another genius idea, you never know.

Personal side-note: here's another for Pat Benatar, but unfortunately it's for an album which has not appeared anywhere else yet... Maybe 200 or 300 additional lists from here, she'll managed to squeeze in a bubbler. Poor Pat has it hard... In other news, the Handsome Beasts' Beastiality is giving Stay Hungry a run for its money as one of the worst album cover arts ever.



The 100 best NWOBHM albums by Stefano Cerati, Daniele Purrone, Andrea Raffaldini, Edoardo Tepes & Nikola Grukevitch (2010)

For some reason, the book is co-credited to Rock Hard magazine. Surprisingly enough, a number of albums here look like comps, but only the ones indicated actually fill the bill, apparently.
