    this list would be pretty solid if it wasn't for your inexplicable number 1, which i still have a hard time believing anybody actually likes. digging the coherence shoutout though.

    What's so bad about it? Kinda annoyingly moralistic, but other than that I thought it was fine. None of those are among my favorites ever though, I found something mildly unsatisfying about each one.

    1. Progeny
    2. Domain of Decay
    3. Temple of Depression
    4. Synagoga Satanae
    5. Ground

    I see you favor the slow, moody tracks. I get that, and I like them too, just don't think they're CF's forte.

    Obscured is beautiful, in the past I would only listen to A Dying God Coming into Human Flesh from Monotheist. To be honest, the entire album doesn't sound like CF. It's great though, despite the fact that it's always a challenging listen.

    My favorite is Ain Elohim, ever since seeing a live clip of it from wherever it was back then, Wacken I think.

    1. Software development (games or desktop applications mainly)
    2. Make more noise music
    3. Tinker with mathematics
    4. Paint/draw art (including on the PC)
    5. Bust nuts

    Actually I have a bit of time, just prefer wasting it posting lists on forums instead. Things like travel are more about the money. Need to rake in the dough so I feel more comfortable splashing out rather than saving it for the longer picture.

    I haven't heard ReLoad in forever. Invisible Kid would definitely be near the very bottom.

    I freakin' love it, particularly the long brooding songs like Where the Wild Things Are and Fixxxer and just about all the other non-singles. So then Bad Seed probably sticks out to me as worse than it is, but the cheesy announcer/circus vocal thing does make it a Stone Temple Pilots rip-off among better Alice in Chains rip-offs.
