    I'm pretty new to In Flames, so what are the best albums to pick up? I hear Whoreacle is the best.

    Whoracle is the best. I like Colony probably second best.

    Colony is the definitive In Flames album. BUY it at once! They're all good though.

    you cant ask a question like this.. you're going to get every album named

    keep in mind that THE JESTER RACE is regarded as their masterpiece.. I'd go with that and Whoracle as first picks

    It's simple.
    Get every release from Lunar Strain to Clayman.
    Start with Whoracle or The Jester Race.

    The Jester Race is one of three albums I own that I would class as 'perfect'. Buy It. NOW!

    First get the 'The Jester Race/Black Ahs Inheritance' rerelease. The Jester Race is often regarded as the best In Flames release, and it comes in a package with the exceletnt EP 'Black Ash Inheritance', which has been out of print for several years. After that, Whoracle is more thrashy, and Lunar Strain and Subterranean (available only together now) are more like older heavier melodic death. After these, Clayman is also excellent, although it is a different style, it is enjoyed by many. Reroute to Remain is their most disputed release, it is a new style that you may or may not enjoy. Try downloading a few mp3s atthis point to see if you will like it. Colony is loved by some, and not by others. There are people who think it is IF's best work, but others think it is their worst, or second worst. It is best to buy it last.

    THE JESTER RACE IS a masterpiece. One of the greatest heavy metal CD's ever recorded. I can remember the first day I heard the first song, "Moonshied" and my heart fluttered. I just kind of mumbled, "oh, man" and let the music soak in my blood.

    Greatness.

    Everyone seems to have mentioned Whoracle so you should probably buy that. It's a great album.. sometimes I like it over TJR.
