    Welcome people. Time to get your guessing game going for November!

    First a few house rules:

    1. No spam guessing. A post with a rash of unexplained guesses won't be counted, and I'm not sorry about that;). Also even if its just one guess I want some justification!
    2. Tangents are good! I love tangents! Try to keep the majority of the conversation on guessing the album, chatting about the hints or talking about the genre that it appears we are moving towards.
    3. If you're one of the lucky hint receivers please @ me in the post with the hint to make my life that bit easier!
    4. Patience is a virtue. I live in GMT (Well actually BST until the last weekend of the month but thats splitting hairs). I'll update when i can but obviously I won't be here in the middle of our night :)
    5. No Music = No Life

    ANNOUNCEMENT: TBD

    The Number 1 Contender For The Heavyweight Crown: Queen - A Night at the Opera

    *Really unconvinced that post-punk is classic rock but I'll keep them as guesses until something else narrows things down.

    What is classic rock?
    Is post-punk classic rock? (NOT CONVINCED :))
    Yacht Rock?
    Some people think Springsteen’s a fraud! I disagreed!

    Good thinking! You hit that limit quick fast.

    I’m pretty much the worst-places person to guess classic rock, not my bag at all. Maybe Led Zep’s IV?

    I usually never guess this early, but have an inkling about this one: Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak.

    Rationale: not metal, but still heavy and classic rock-y. Also, Storf was tweeting a bunch about Thin Lizzy a few months back.

    Where did we get the idea it’s classic rock?

    I’m guessing QOTSA - Songs for the Deaf

    No, but about half of my Granny’s family emigrated from Scotland to Canada. Does that count?
