Shouldn't Reign In Blood by Slayer be much higher than #43 because of how it impacted heavy metal drumming? And where is Houses of the Holy by Led Zeppelin???

Also, the ELP debut should be Carl Palmer's second highest ranking album...

Since there's still a lack of Queen albums here I'd like to suggest the first 2 albums to be added.
