Instead of our normal scoring system, we simplified it down to the 3-choice options of: "Buy, Borrow, or Bust" --Buy: I'd put down some cash for it, Borrow: I'd stream it or snag a copy from a friend, Bust: I'd physically crush this into little pieces with a heavy vehicle.

In our DIY age with thousands of releases each year, getting noticed is half the battle. So, let's spin the wheel on Black Oak County, Halestorm, Overkill, Our Place of Worship is Silence, and Saille; and see where it lands...
