Which Mag has better taste?

If you remember a while back, I kinda blasted Revolver magazine for their pretty lame top 20 albums of 2003 list. I even went so far as to send them hate mail! I thought it was that bad in comparison to Metal Edge magazines picks. So I thought I'd post both lists here for your reading pleasure to compare you guys think have better taste in Rock and Metal.

Revolver Magazine's Top 20 Albums of 2003:
1. Lamb of God - As The Palaces Burn
2. The Darkness - Permission to Land
3. The Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium
4. Opeth - Damnation
5. Killing Joke - Killing Joke
6. Dimmu Borgir - Death Cult Armageddon
7. Turbonegro - Scandanavian Leather
8. Billy Talent - Billy Talent
9. Rancid - Indestructable
10. The Blood Brothers - ...Burn, Piano Island, Burn
11. The Distillers - Coral Fang
12. Lighting Bolt - Wonderful Rainbow
13. Metallica - St. Anger
14. AFI - Sing The Sorrow
15. Brand New - Deja Entendu
16. Strapping Young Lad - SYL
17. Dysrhythmia - Pretest
18. Thrice - The Artist In The Ambulance
19. Poison The Well - You Come Before You
20. Pelican - Australasia

And now Metal Edge's top picks of 2003 in no particular order:
A Perfect Circle - Thirteenth Step
AFI - Sing The Sorrow
All American Rejects - All American Rejects
Anthrax - We've Come For You All
Black Label Society - The Blessed Hellride
Cold - Year of the Spider
The Darkness - Permission to Land
Devil Driver - Devil Driver
Dope - Group Therepy
Evanescence - Fallen
Godhead - Evolver
Godsmack - Faceless
House of 1000 Corpses soundtrack
Jane's Addiction - Strays
Jet - Get Born
Korn - Take A Look In The Mirror
Lo Pro - Lo Pro
Marilyn Manson - The Golden Age of Grotesque
John Mayer - Heavier Things
Memento - Beginnings
Metallica - St. Anger
Ministry - Animositsomina
Murderdolls - Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls (Digipack)
Nickleback - The Long Road
Oleander - Joy Ride
Powerman 5000 - Transform
Puddle of Mudd - Life on Display
Queensryche - Tribe
David Lee Roth - Diamond Dave
Sevendust - Seasons
Static-X - Shadow Zone
SuperSuckers - Motherf***ers Be Trippin'
Superjoint Ritual - A Lethal Dose Of American Hatred
To My Suprise - To My Suprise
Type O Negative - Life Is Killing Me

So there you have it. Metal Edge had more choices, and kinda smooth things over by not giving them more importance with an actual numbering system, but I still prefer their picks over Revolver's. What do you guys think?
