Here you go...

OK. So this list is far bigger than the first volume of the metaltheque, since every single main (reviewed) entries (save for a few) have a recommended secondary (non-reviewed) entry. And you must add to that the "And also..." sections that are featured for each subgenre minus Folk Metal (each time a straightforward list of additional non-reviewed albums)!!! (and the last part, which is a big "And also..." section in itself with reviewed albums this time around). It feels like the magazine is emptying its bag with this one, but the feature is still ongoing in the magazine, so a Volume 3 can unfortunately not be ruled out.

Well, the biggest things to notice are: Ted Nugent is well purveyed again (is this the post Donald Trump world?), Dream Theater appears a lot too, which will probably make Nassim scream in horror, the nu metal section is the biggest collection of albums I've ever seen with the poorest all-around ratings (some of them are below 50 on Metacritic!) and the AOR section features the biggest collection of artists that trusted the charts for one minute in the 80s and early 90s only to be totally forgotten afterwards (Robin Beck anyone? :D ) except for the inescapable Michael Bolton of course, and man, KISS's "Music from The Elder" again. Is this album good? Am I missing something? I feel incomplete :angry-banghead: :mrgreen:
