I've been thinking about getting one of their CD's for a while now, so which one would be the best?
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):
How to Measure a Planet?
Mandylion its best album...
if_then_else its my favorite!
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.
Mandylion, Nighttime Birds, How To Measure A Planet. My favs.
Yeah, im trying to get into the Gathering too I saw them live and they were good.
How To Measure A Planet....
i bought souvenirs yesterday. tyhe first shit album ive bought all year. God it is fucking shit. how is this consider metal?
Coming from you , such a stupid answer is not a surprise .
By the way , Souvenirs is my favorite The Gathering album with Mandylion
My favourite is "Always", but I also like "Mandylion" and "Souvenirs". Three albums that sound like music from three different bands.
if i wanted to listen to music of this style id listen to tori amos. not the "fagthering"
You already listen to fag music, this is an improvement for you.
Black Light District. Even if it is an EP.
How To Measure A Planet is the best.
Listen to the Great Ocean Road and Travel.
Mandylion is their best album.
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.
