Albums that have few good songs (the first few, usually) and the rest sucks

    Fabulous Disaster is actually one of my favourite Exodus albums along with Tempo and Bonded... I just dig the whole album more than individual songs just for being so stylistically different to their other stuff.

    Why be fair when you can choose favorites that kick your ass from beginning to end with no filler?

    Agree with Ziltoid to an extent. Some cool songs on the album though - Hyperdrive is brilliant.

    Actually, I pretty much agree with you 100% there.

    Agree with all but Rhapsody and Dimmu. PEM is my favorite Dimmu album, and I can't stand Rhapsody at all.

    I love Unquestionable Presence. I barely even listen to that style of music but that album is just sex.

    I thought that too at one point.

    Then I turned 12.

    Oh hell naw.

    SBD could easily be considered Dimmu's best album done in their modern style and PDM may be slightly overrated but it really is a defining album for them.

    I find this to be the case with everything Ive heard from Dimmu Borgir. Soemtimes I pick up one of their cd's and I am wondering why I dont liten more often to their stuff. When the it has finished playing I always know why - I dont think it holds up all the way through. Or perhaps that it just becomes to much to digest. For me Dimmu Birgir can be really good but only in small doses.

    A few have mentioned "Fabulous Disaster", but I think "Tempo of the Damned" fits this a lot more. The first 4 songs kick ass :worship: and then a deep, downward spiral IMO that doesn't come back up again until the last 2 songs (Impaler & TotD)...

    I actually love Tempo of the Damned as a whole... aside from the vocals, that is. Souza is an utterly cringeworthy vocalist. WE GET IT YOU WANT TO BE BON SCOTT, BUDDY. GTFO

    I actually love all of tempo... For me it's their best album *awaits flaming*. And i also think Zetro's vocals are ripping. Again i'll probably be flamed for this but zetro is my favourite exodus vocalist. Baloff, may he R.I.P., was "classic" for the period but zetro is truely awesome imo. I guess it's a personal taste kind of thing

    Always felt like 'Golgotha' was by far the peak on Onward to Golgotha. Likewise for 'As I Behold I Despise' on Slumber of Sullen Eyes. I imagine a lot of people will disagree since these are considered classics. Maybe I just don't have the patience for the less immediate stuff.

    'Magical Shadows of a Tragic Past' on Vampires of Black Imperial Blood too. Though 'Born Under the Master's Spell' is also good.

    In the Nightside Eclipse, IMO, has clear peaks in the first and last two tracks. Blood Fire Death and Reign In Blood are of course the classic examples of "total filler sandwiched between two amazing songs".

    Really there's not a great many metal albums I want to listen to more than a handful of songs off in one sitting. It doesn't really suit my ADD listening habits and the notion of the album as a coherent statement is massively overblown when looking at the vast majority of metal albums IMO.

    I would say The Smiths' Strangeways, Here We Come is a lopsided album. The first half is great but the second half is rather mediocre.
