    Yeah, wouldn't know how to get the right album for Vanilla Ice without an image search, so I am out there.

    7 and 8 sound like lyrics clues. 7 especially, though I am fairly certain I don't know the song so its as far as I can go....

    I think it'll be there for the steal if Rob can get two. Or we'll have a tie if someone else can come in and clean up.

    Vanilla Ice- To The Extreme. Yeah I had the cassette

    7 is N Sync, No Strings Attached. The lyric finally clicked.

    No idea on 8

    Heh, looks like you're going to take another one, Rob. Don't think anyone catch you now unless the clues fall my way (and even then it's a tie)

    I don't think an image search would've been necessary. Just type in "Vanilla Ice album" to Google and it likely would've been the top answer. Either way, To The Extreme is correct.

    So, too, is No Strings Attached. I thought that one would go early.

    That leaves just one more. I chose an intentionally vague part of the album cover to disguise it, but I didn't think it was THAT vague. Here's a hint, though.

    #8 was my personal pick for the best album of 2016.

    If that, combined with the previous hints, doesn't do it, nothing will, even though I'm sure some of you will be kicking yourselves upon the reveal.

    You attended the damn concert and saw the image projected onto a 4 story tall screen. I'm frankly shocked that this was the one that wound up being last.

    I'm giving it to Prime, as we all know who it's by. I was just going for the technicality.

    We have ourselves a tie between TripleR and Prime Time, as I gave Rob's Ladyfriend credit for October Rust. You guys can decide amongst yourselves who should go next or I can flip a coin or something.

    Also, I thought it might be nice to see what all the album covers looked like at the end of this, so here's an answer image.

    OK, here you go. Everyone has said they think this'll be easier than the first and I'm not sure it's worked out that way. I've gone for what I think are quite gettable ones, but that's always really hard to judge with music, so we'll just see how it goes. I figure someone either comes in and gets 5 straight off the bat or it's just as tough as the other ones, but we won't know until you guys have a crack, will we?

    Apologies for any problems with the image quality, my first time using a new program.






    1)Meatloaf, Bat Out of Hell (TripleR)
    2) The Beatles, Help! (SirSam)
    3) Rage Against the Machine, Evil Empire (TripleR)
    4) The Offspring, Ixnay on the Hombre (Steve)
    5) Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here (TripleR)
    6) Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin IV (Steve)
    7) Smashing Pumpkins, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (TripleR)
    8) Jimi Hendrix Experience, Axis: Bold as Love (SirSam)
    9) Bruce Springsteen, Born to Run (SirSam)

    1.) Meatloaf Bat Out of Hell
    3.) Rage Against the Machine Evil Empire
    7.) Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

    Three right off the bat. Now to ponder the rest

    Well, there's our answer. It is easier!

    Is 5 Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here?

    It certainly appears to be.

    4 is Ixnay on the Hombre by The Offspring. 6 is Led Zeppelin IV.

    I wouldn't say this one's too easy, but I instantly knew 6 of them as soon as I looked at it. The others will require more thought, though a few do look very familiar.

    Another for Rob and two for Steve.

    Yeah, I went more straightforward to see if it would open it up to more people and also as a bit of an exploration as to how easy becomes too easy for the regulars. Doesn't seem to have led to more participants though. And with you guys being very good at this, it means you're down to the tricky three right away.

    9 - Born To Run Bruce Springsteen.

    If I had been on earlier I would have got some others too. Good picks, far more up my alley.

    Good shout SirSam.

    So, two left. If Steve gets them both there's a tie, otherwise Rob wins.

    I'll let people have another few hours at the last couple, and then if no one has got them I'll drop some clues in the morning.

    Rob's still not got this one sewn up just yet....

    Not quite right on the title, but that's close enough for me. That means Rob is up next regardless of what happens with the last one, so I'll throw out a clue for it.

    So each of the two hand's that you can see in 2) belong to two of the most famous songwriters to come out of Britain.

    I'm just pleased that the last couple took a few days to make this a similar length to the first two!

    Britney Spears!

    I thought three was Neutral Milk Hotels 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea' for a moment, but I'm pretty sure it's not.

    I have no idea who that is.

    I would have got it if it was (check out the review a song thread!).

    They're an American indy band. Despite not shifting a lot in the first instance it's rep has grown over time an dthe album has become a bit of a cult classic.

    I'm drawing a blank so far on the covers, by the way.

    6 is Audioslave's Out of Exile

    7 is Revolution Radio by Green Day. I think. It could also be Inhuman Rampage by Dragonforce, but I think that explosion looking thingy has a timer in the middle of it. I also don't see you rocking a lot of Dragonforce.

    Is 8 Pornografitti by Extreme? If so, I only know it because I was listening to More Than Words on YouTube yesterday and could swear I saw that lady. I could be wrong, though, and maybe it's just in my head because, well, I listened to it yesterday.

    9 is definitely Around the World in a Day by Prince. My mom used to listen to that constantly so I vividly remember the album sleeve.

    I know the artists for 1 and 4 but have no clue about the album titles.
