    I could never get into that album. It's hard for me to listen to it without hearing Matt giving his all, while the music itself sounds too much like a super generic, watered down version of Iced Earth (which can be super generic too) with almost no bite in the distortion at all, but instead keyboard wankery for "oooh, atmosphere"! I also feel he's just not a fit for the band compared to someone like Lance King.

    Yeah, Immortal was a decent album, but no more than that. It had some good tracks, like Touched by the Mara, but overall, like Sdraw said, the vocals don't fit the sound. Lance King's vocals were more suited to the "thinner" style of Pyramaze.

    Every time I listen to this band I vision Wayne and Garth driving around in the Pacer.

    Damn, these goggles are so sweet! Been listening to something wicked this morning in the car, and I felt like I was a teen again. Now I wanna play roleplaying games, feel socially awkward again and have that stupid smile on my face each time I see a girl!

    :kickass:

    I will probably not last any longer though...

    Hey, I never said there was something wrong with Nostalgia Goggles, I'm just saying they make you get a skewed idea of an album's objective musical merit. Nostalgia Goggles can be great fun, and they should be!

    i would probably say Alive in Athens over Days of Purgatory, it has most of the important old songs, and it's live so Barlow (who is in fact a giant walking talking ball of cheese disguised as a human) doesnt have as much opportunity to ruin half the tracks with his beyond cringe-worthy double vocals and 'emotional' delivery.

    Incorruptible is pretty good. The best of the Stu Era. Also, Stu sounds like ass live, but I blame Jon for that. Also also, I haven't listened to Nevermore in a lifetime. They just never fully clicked with me.
