    Directions: Rank Slough Feg's 10 albums. Order and number each album 1-10. Ties are OK. Your first place album earns 10 points, your second place album earns 9 points, etc.

    Rules:
    • You may rank as few as 6 albums. Lists with less than 6 albums will not be counted.
    • If you list less than 10 albums, the first placed album will still get 10 points, the last placed album will still get 1 point, and the albums in between will have points distributed proportionately. The average points earned for albums that are not listed will not be impacted positively or negatively, so if you don't rank an album, you neither help it or hurt it.
    • If you don't number your list then it will be assumed that it is in ranked order
    At the end, the albums will be ranked based on their average number of points per vote.

    You have until Sunday February 2nd at 9 AM PST to finalize your list, re-familiarize yourself albums you haven’t heard in awhile, familiarize yourself with albums you haven’t heard at all, lobby for any albums you think are underrated, and lobby against any albums you think are overrated.

    The Lord Weird Slough Feg (1996)
    Twilight of the Idols (1998)
    Down Among the Deadmen (2000)
    Traveller (2003)
    Atavism (2005)
    Hardworlder (2007)
    Ape Uprising! (2009)
    The Animal Spirits (2010)
    Digital Resistence (2014)
    New Organon (2019)

    1. Traveller - every bit as well-written and hooky as any of the greatest trad or power metal albums of the 80s, 9.5/10
    2. Down Among the Deadmen - virtually as excellent as Traveller, the trade-off being a little less complexity but a little more atmosphere and moodiness, might swap the albums' positions, 9.5/10
    3. Twilight of the Idols - merely great writing overall, the worst songs are still solid, the best songs still some of trad's riffiest, 8/10
    4. Atavism - underrated album that defines 'whole > sum of parts', love the concept behind the album and there's a certain kind of uplifting purity in its simplicity that the later albums lost, 7.5/10
    5. The Lord Weird Slough Feg - sounds more like a rough demo than a proper album but there's some cool stuff, 5/10
    6. Hardworlder - too simplistic and goofy, 5/10
    7. Digital Resistance - generic, 5/10
    8. Ape Uprising - offensively bad, 2/10

    Haven't heard New Organon and I think I've only heard The Animal Spirits once.

    One of my favorites bands of all time.

    1. Twilight of the Idols
    2. Traveller
    3. Down Among the Dead Men
    4. Hardworlder
    5. Ape Uprising!
    6. The Animal Spirits
    7. New Organon
    8. Atavism
    9. The Lord Weird Slough Feg
    10. Digital Resistence


    Top three are 10/10 perfection (twilight being one of my all time favorite metal albums)
    4-6 are high 9s
    7/8 slip a bit but are still great heavy metal.

    9-10 are alright but just don’t stack up as wel.
