    :D Uhhh, I downloaded the ENTIRE Chinese Democracy album. IRS and Better are AMAZING songs. Heck of a lot better album than 90% of what has been released this year, hehe.

    Also, I can't really compare HIM to PT...too different. But, I listen to HIM FAR more than PT. because of the catchy style. I'm ALWAYS in the mood for some HIM, but it's not so much the case with PT. Now Katatonia and HIM are pretty damn equal...:p I could NEVER decide.

    Daniel Johns is a genius. I had faith he'd write good stuff even if it wasn't as dark. But obviously not:( Straight Lines was catchy but wore off very quickly. And I can't really say much about the rest of the album. Mediocre.

    The main beef beside the lack of darkness was how he used his voice really. Seems he can't do that awesome switching between his raspy and mellow voice anymore

    Kinda Groovy Death Metal. So much talk about "God" and "Jesus".

    I don't have any list but just wanted to add that Porcupine Tree's Fear of a Blank Planet is really good. I'm liking it a lot.

    So far, I'm only really crazy about three albums this year:

    Porcupine Tree- Fear of a Blank Planet
    Blackfield- Blackfield
    Rumskib- Rumskib


    It's just dissapointing, because it seems like for the last few years there's only been a handful of albums a year that I've really cared about.

    I wish I could build a time machine and go back to say, 96 or 97 when there were a TON of great doom and black metal albums being released so consistently. I miss those high school days where I was always so excited about new music... most of those bands have either broken up or are well past their prime, with Porcupine Tree and Katatonia perhaps being the two greatest exceptions.

    Ah, I forgot about The Oath...yes, Ahab is very good!:kickass:

    PS: The Oath was released January 2007, and Funeral was released in most places 2007 (Norway dec. 2006, I believe)...I know mine says 2007 on it.

    The Ahab full lenght album is not called "The Oath", but "The Call of the Wretched Sea". "The Oath" is a EP released some years ago. :)

    Well, it was supposed to be released in Norway in Dec. 2006, world 2007. Perhaps some shops just got it from Norway? Who knows. You might say this one was released in 2006 and 2007

    (and yeah, The Oath was re-released on vinyl in january. Considering the last one was a CDR of 30 copies, or something like that, I think I can justify saying this is a favorite from this year.)
