Its pretty much my main resource for discograhies these days, since it is much easier to browse than on last.fm. Definitely also worth checking out the year lists, where albums are ranked by user scores (http://rateyourmusic.com/charts/top/album/2012), with records averaging around 1000 separate ratings. The list seem to be quite diverse, with more inclusion of metal than many other websites.
