    I realize we had that thread about post reformed but what about their whole discovery?

    *edit I'm going to have to think about this but Metal, Open the Gates, Gates of Fire and The Deluge are all up there for me.

    It can only be Open the Gates or Mark of the Beast.

    The Deluge's title track is the most metal song ever, can't leave that out!

    Also... I feel I must point out how awesome Roadkill is... Apart from the fake crowd noise, it's really an outstanding performance IMO.

    Why? There are a number of better songs on the album than the bonus track.

    The Deluge is when they truly began coming into their own.

    I voted fot The Deluge but it´s really a tie between it and Open the Gates. For me Mystification is a close second, I find it very underrated.

    Metal is the most underrated album imo. Cage of Mirrors is easily one of my favorite Manilla Road songs, the vocals are Mark Shelton at his best imo.

    What fuck is wrong with you all? Despite the filler songs, Crystal Logic reigns supreme.

    Really leaning towards Mark Of The Beast.A very personal album for Manilla Road and I can very much relate to it.Something tells me the MR boys also had a good crack at the nose candy back in the day...the guitar work though is extraordinary,even for their standards.
    It was strange last night sitting on my balcony enjoying a quiet beer and listened to this album three times in a row...i'd been partying for a couple of days and had'nt slept.Without even having considered it before putting on the album,I felt as though this album from all those years ago was about what i'd been experiencing the last couple of days.Namely about how certain substances can really derail your mind/life in a short period of time.And then after a while I realised that MOTB is infact the MR album that deals with a period of time that they'd perhaps rather have left in the past but I could'nt help but feel when I was listening to this last night that it is very honest in the way Shelton and crew put these hazy thoughts to record.Without being blatantly obvious about the subject matter...perhaps it's as much to do with this as the other reasons Shelton states as not being fond of the album.Looking at it in that light I don't blame him.

    Open The Gates. Band comes into their own and it's probably their most refined album.

    I fucking love Crystal Logic but in my opinion it's a little overrated.

    It would've been cool if Randy Foxe had played the drums on Crystal Logic, he could've added a lot of great shit on spacious songs like "Dreams of Eschaton" or "The Veils of Negative Existence".
