GMD Poll: Top Ten Albums of 1987

I just relistened to it since I realized I hadn't even included it in my list, and nah, not even close. It has a few good ideas and a strong, warm production but pretty average riffs overall. Terror Squad is one perfect riff after the next.
Why would you use riffless bands like Revocation and Heathen to disprove an accusation of hating riffs?
Heathen does have some good riffs, but are hardly a top-riff kind of band.

Give me your best Revocation riffs.
damn how the fuck did i forget to rank Breaking the Silence?

i'd take it over terror squad at least
i'd take it over all three of those albums. Terror Squad and Mystification are right up there at the #11-12 spots though.
