    Well... why not, I'm bored :D on most of the albums there are two songs tied for top spot, and I can't be arsed to decide between them :D

    Lunar Strain - Upon an Oaken Throne/In Flames
    Subterranean - Stand Ablaze
    The Jester Race - The Jester Race
    Black Ash Inheritance - Goliaths
    Whoracle - Jotun
    Colony - Zombie Inc
    Clayman - Satellites & Astronauts/Only For The Weak
    R2R - System/Minus
    STYE - The Quiet Place
    Come Clarity - Dead End/Vanishing Light
    The Mirror's Truth EP - Eraser
    ASOP - I really don't fucking know. If I was forced to pick I guess Sleepless Again or Condemned, I don't know. This album sucks so much I can't really decide which song I hate least :D

    I like your choice of ATFRT for Clayman, Jabi... a criminally underrated song.

    To me, ATFRT is the Clayman song that has stood the test of time the best. I feel that the hits (OFTW, Bullet Ride, Pinball Map) I've heard one too many times by now.

    Except I'm pretty sure the solo wasn't done by any In Flames guitarist on that song :|

    So, according to last.fm these are the top 20 most popular In Flames tracks in the last 6 months...

    1. Take This Life
    2. Come Clarity
    3. Cloud Connected
    4. Only For The Weak
    5. The Quiet Place
    6. Dead End
    7. Trigger
    8. Reflect the Storm
    9. Leeches
    10. Crawl Through Knives
    11. Alias
    12. Scream (?!)
    13. The Mirror's Truth
    14. My Sweet Shadow
    15. Vacuum
    16. Pinball Map
    17. Bullet Ride
    18. Delight and Angers :guh:
    19. Disconnected :guh:
    20. I'm the Highway :guh:

    So yeah... proves that for the most part In Flames' fanbase fucking sucks :D Oh my God. Scream 12th? What the fuck :D it's nice to see OFTW still kicking ass 11 years after release, but that list overall makes tragic fucking reading.

    Bottled meanwhile is 70th, ahead of The Jester Race(song), December Flower and the majority of the TJR/Whoracle album... LAME.

    Also according to Last.fm, this is how the list goes in terms of album popularity over the last 6 months...

    Come Clarity
    ASOP
    R2R
    STYE
    Clayman
    Colony
    Whoracle
    TJR
    Lunar/Sub

    SOAPF obviously yet to enter the charts, but ohmygod... how desperately sad :D

    The Jester Race: Moonshield

    Whoracle: Worlds Within the Margin (fuckin' epic with the strings playing over the growls!)

    Colony: Zombie Inc. (i'm guessing this is the overral winner of 'best In Flames song'. People! We need an 'In Flames award ceremony'!)

    Clayman: Pinball Map (NOT Satellites and Astronauts! :mad: )

    RTR: So hard to choose... it's a tie between System, Minus and Free Fall

    STYE: Another hard one... arrrggghh... i dunno. The Quiet Place/My Sweet Shadow/Borders and Shading/Dial 959-Escape

    It is sad but unfortunately it's probably an accurate reflection of N'Flamez fanbase :D

    That's not terribly surprising. Really, old school In Flames fans are a minority and most of their fan base consists of post-Clayman inductees.

    We're a over a decade past their last non-controversial album (Colony), and old fans have been jumping ship ever since then. Similarly, their fan base exploded after R2R. Makes sense that their most recent stuff would get the most plays.

    :D

    The "nu" fans have no fucking excuse. Even ASOP has been out 3 years, that's plenty of time to go into their back-catalogue and realise how much better Colony/Clayman is. I don't give a shit about this 'opinion' bollox, I'm laying it down as it is, it's as true as true can be.... if you genuinely prefer STYE or ASOP over Colony or Clayman you fucking suck. So it was written, and everyone who isn't an asshole saw it was true :D

    I can vouch for the theory that the majority of IF fans came after Colony/Clayman. But i still think there is nothing wrong with going backwards and enjoying the early albums- it's amazing to see where In Flames came from, how their work has evolved.

    When we were saying how people don't react to the old shit (Artifacts, Jotun etc) when they play it on stage, and the crowd just become zombies... i can't see why the fuck they'd do it. I was a witness to that happening- Artifacts seemingly put the crowd to sleep! :guh: Okay, AotBR isn't my favourite pick on the old material by a long shot... but if they played Moonshield, Behind Space, Episode 666- c'mon they are classics! And you can just feel the energy in the song. The crowds should be tearing shit up when those songs hit! :kickass:

    Zombie Inc. for Christ's fuckin' sake!! Do they even play it nowadays?? If not- then why not? It'd make they look godly! The crowd would be like this>>> :worship:

    Delight and Angers anyone? :puke:

    That's the problem bro, people don't react like that, even to songs as awesome as Zombie Inc. The majority of the crowd are poser-metal assholes and as soon as they hear a real riff they stand there frozen with fear, wondering why Anders isn't singing like "feeling like shit" or "Drowning monsters" anymore and trying to hold back the tears :D

    Seriously, I was sickened to see the crowd reaction to the TJR/Whoracle stuff when I've seen them live.

    It's In Flames' fault for pandering to that crowd, but it still sucks.
