    She has one album I know Badlands but I know it doesn't look like that. It is all black.

    It's always been the album we've been guessing so far, so if we're going to be consistent I'd say no points for artist alone.

    I know the most followed person on Instagram is Selena Gomez but I couldn't tell you anything about her music at all. Hopefully it will help someone else though.

    The only way I'd be able to get either is cheating.

    Gooner can still nick this one, so he needs a chance to try and do that. But given we've got the artists and still don't know the albums I'd say that if he hasn't by Monday, then just revealing the answers and moving on to Sam's go is probably the best way - unless anyone objects to that?

    No guesses in days, everyone on the board essentially passing, and no news in around a week from the setter... I'm going to call this one done. We can maybe get the final results at some point.

    But for now, SirSam is the winner and can set the next one.

    Sorry guys... life has been hectic lately, and while the last two artists were guessed correctly, the album titles never were. Nuke this one and start up another one so you guys can move on.

    Just a bump to remind that Sam's up next. I know he's been on holiday and stuff and may not have noticed.

    Here it is, sorry for the delay.

    The theme for this one is that they are all albums that were in my most 20 most listened list for 2017. There are some I expect some of you to get quick smart, some I will frankly be surprised if anyone gets but I wanted to up the difficulty after my first two of these basically went to whoever got in first.

    Good luck peeps.

    I believe this is the first one of these where I don't recognize a single one right off the bat. Could have to do with the fact that I have only cursory knowledge of modern music.

    Is 7 Hardwired... To Self Destruct by Metallica?

    No others are leaping out at me, but that could well be due to the fact that both times I've given it a look have been right after getting home from work. I've been reading bar codes and numbers so long that my brain is fried. Perhaps revisiting it later will help in that regard.

    Irish Punk? Shit, are there any? I mean there's Undertones and Stiff Little Fingers I guess but I don't recognise the cover.

    Unless you mean Irish Punk as in Irish style - most of the famous ones are American, I believe. Could be something like Dropkick Murphy's I guess.

    But yeah, not getting a lot more immediately.

    Ah OK. Then I'm guessing it's a fairly new one as I don't recognise it at all. Unless if it is earlier I suppose it could be live, or a compilation?

    DKM is one of my favorite bands, but that album doesnít look like any of their covers from The Warriorís Way on, so Iím gonna guess itís earlier than that and go with Blackout.

    Well seems I may have gone a little too hard. So I'll post my clues again and add some more:

    CLUE 1
    1. The lead singer has a very deep voice
    2. The band is named after a famous government policy that has left a lot of young men in jail.
    3. The band is named after a long running 'war'.
    4. Deaders
    5. The first language of the artist is Korean
    6. Bunch of Teenagers
    8. Surface and Colour
    9. Famous Irish Punk band

    CLUE 2
    1. They have a song at the climax of the movie Warrior
    2. The album title is the opposite of understanding something.
    3. In relation to the artist. Kids born between the 50-80s could be called _____ ______ Kids
    4. They guys murdered something and it was really really good.
    5. This is an indie Korean artist and the album is a numer of a famous sporting jumper in football, cricket and basketball
    6. Going Longer but not in the darkness
    8. The singer in the band famously broke his leg in the middle of a gig but played on
    9. PT worked out it was the Dropkick Murphys and it is one of their newer albums.

    After going too easy to start with I feel I may have gone too obscure here. I think Oli and Rob would know some based on previous things they have put up in here and also generally in the music section but it doesn't look like either of them are in here.

    I dunno how much further I can go without just giving up the answers.

    Sorry, mate. I gotta say, I'm the "music guy" to virtually everyone I know in the really real world but man, some of the stuff you guys come with make me feel like a music simpleton, as I often have never even heard of some of the artists or albums.

    I guess we all have our strong and weak suits.

    Same here. I'm the music and guitar obsessed guy in my real life circle, but I don't have a clue of any of those album covers.. Admittedly I tend to look back and not forward most of the time when it comes to music. I don't get a lot of new music or it takes a while to grow on me a lot of the time with coaxing from my friends.

    I might have even been cool if I'd got into deathcore when it was popular as I played guitar and stuff but I largely ignored it and listened to older stuff and then finally got into it later. I still prefer a good old "Shred" but that's a dirty word in metal nowadays it seems.

    Anyway, back on topic, you've kicked our asses with impossible to guess album covers haha

    Some are hard to give more clues for some, but a few - 1,2,3,4,6 - have been kinda cryptic, so you could always try a clue that is more 'straight' for those ones?

    I will say I used to have a real broad knowledge of music but damned if I could name a single Korean indie star.

    Ok I'll post all the clues again and another round. If that doesn't help then we'll give it to Steve and move on.

    CLUE 1
    1. The lead singer has a very deep voice
    2. The band is named after a famous government policy that has left a lot of young men in jail.
    3. The band is named after a long running 'war'.
    4. Deaders
    5. The first language of the artist is Korean
    6. Bunch of Teenagers
    9. Famous Irish Punk band

    CLUE 2
    1. They have a song at the climax of the movie Warrior
    2. The album title is the opposite of understanding something.
    3. In relation to the artist. Kids born between the 50-80s could be called _____ ______ Kids

    5. This is an indie Korean artist and the album is a numer of a famous sporting jumper in football, cricket and basketball

    CLUE 3
    1. Album won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album
    2. The policy I was talking about was instituted by Richard Nixon and involved primarily combating activities in Central & South America and also targetted particularly low socio-economic areas in urban America. Something about a war.
    3. This war that the band is somewhat named after symbolically ended when a wall was torn down in the year I was born.
    4. As of March 2018 the band's biggest song had been in the the UK Top 100 single chart for 200 straight weeks despite being released a decade ago.
    5. The album title is the number Michael Jordan wears on his back.

    I've worked out who some of the bands are (I think) but all that's really given me is the knowledge that I never had a shot, haha.

    Ok I'm gona call an end to this. Sorry for going a little too left field, after going too easy before I massively over corrected. Hopefully I didn't kill the thred. Here are the images of the cut down and then the full albums:





    1. The National - Sleep Well Beast
    2. The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding
    3. Cold War Kids - La Divine
    4. The Killers - Wonderful Wonderful
    5. HYUKOH - 23
    6. Gang of Youths - Go Father In Lightness
    7. Metallica - Hardwired To Self-Destruct (Steve)
    8. Foo Fighters - Concrete & Gold (Steve)

    9. Dropkick Murphys - 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory

    Scores
    Steve - 2


    I guess that means Steve gets the win and it is his next.

    As a side note I would recommend all of these albums, they were amongst my most played in 2017 and are full of really great songs. Let me know if you do have a listen and discover something new you enjoy.

    Nothing wrong with having eclectic music tastes, I say. I've honestly never heard of some of those bands or albums even once in my life. But hell, they must be doing something right, you know?

    Here's my latest offering. It's a really random mix but I think most of them are from easy to moderate difficulty, with the possible exception of one (maybe two) somewhat less well known.



    1) Worlds Collide by Apocalyptica (Skul)
    2) Hotel California by The Eagles (Rob S.)
    3) ...And Justice For All by Metallica (Dude)
    4) Sap by Alice in Chains (Dude)
    5) Hellbilly Deluxe by Rob Zombie (meandi)
    6) Echo by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Prime Time)
    7) The Sign by Ace of Base (nobody)
    8) Ten by Pearl Jam (Dude)
    9) Stay Hungry by Twisted Sister (Prime Time)
