    due to the change of styles they go through.

    but I recommend Mandylion and souvenirs the most.

    then go on from there...

    Here's the order you should get them in, according to my wonderful opinion (some albums missing because I haven't heard them):

    Mandylion
    How to Measure a Planet?
    Souvenirs
    if_then_else

    I think they peaked with 'Mandylion' and 'Nighttime Birds'. Those are my two faves, so obviously, I'd recommend them.
    I like their new stuff too, but it's drastically different. They've basically gotten away from any kind of metal sound. But hey, there's nothing wrong with change. :cool:

    My favourite is "Always", but I also like "Mandylion" and "Souvenirs". Three albums that sound like music from three different bands.

    How To Measure A Planet is the best.

    How to measure a planet? is their masterpiece. But if you´re a strict
    metalhead, you should try either Mandylion or Nighttime birds.

    Tori Amos kicks ass, particularly Under The Pink.

    My favorite The Gathering albums are Mandylion and If_Then_Else.

    I totally agree with dimensionidol, Flood and Moshpit.

    @AllWithinMyMonster: I like Tori Amos (her "Saint & Sinner" live-bootleg from 1996 is my favourite album), but I don´t think her style has much to do with The Gathering/Anneke van Giersbergen.

    Get second album "Almost a Dance" for the comedic value of the vocals.
