    I've heard Zombie Inc. live :D. Also, Satellites and Astronauts, Insipid 2000, Graveland, Artifacts of the Black Rain, The Jester Race, Dead God In Me, Only For the Weak. Still never heard anything off Whoracle though :(

    You love me really! :saint:

    But seriously- Satellites is really everyone's favourite from Clayman? Whaaaaaaat? :OMG:

    To me, every other songs blows S&A out of the water!! In the context of Clayman as an album- look upon my mighty signature-image!!

    I think Swim is the weakest on Clayman because I feel that it has too much of an up-beat riff. I don't mean up-tempo, I mean it seems too happy compared to the rest of the album. Know what I mean? But anyway, Satellites and Astronauts is just amazing. I'd say it's a tie between that and ...As the Future Repeats Today. But the beginning of the second verse in S&A is crazy good. "Make me feel like a man, A silent cry from the middle of hell", the clean guitar that goes with this?!?! It has this echo and feeling of being in the middle of hell by yourself. Ridiculous.

    You just earned mega points with me bro, almost makes up for you liking Bottled :D

    I don't see how somebody can dislike S&A. It's just epic, in every sense of the word. One of the most emotional solos I've heard.

    Again- i have to disagree. The solo isn't memorable in the slightest. I also dislike the outro of S&A. It's just jangling guitars fading out, slightly monotonous like the rest of the song. Crucify me if you will, but give me Jester Script Transfigured anyday- i mean c'mon: guitar solos over the outro melody. F.U.C.K.I.N.G E.P.I.C :worship:

    I love JST, one of the best songs ever... but man, your opinion on S&A saddens me greatly :D you're lucky I've taken 4 ibuprofen and am feeling a bit mellow :D

    :rolleyes: I just really don't see the appeal of S&A (dude, we need a seperate thread for S&A discussions!!). What Jester313 was saying about the imagining of being stranded in 'Hell'- i just don't feel that at all. The acoustics feel too flat, and the riff doesn't it to mind either.

    I really like the image in this video- i think the emptiness of space suites S&A's atmosphere moreso.



    Discover me like Emptiness also brings to mind the vast darkness of deep space. I love it when In Flames create these amazing atmospheres- they are one band that are distinct in that respect! IFWT!!

    It might be interesting to point out that this speaks to the crowd that In Flames attracted with their material after Clayman. I think if you took a band like Dark Tranquillity, you'll find that fans who entered post-Damage Done are much more familiar with their back catalog, whereas In Flames fans post-Clayman tend to confine themselves to the more recent, "poppier" albums. It's sad to say, but most In Flames fans are casual listeners.

    Personally, I think In Flames only pandered egregiously on R2R (it was the starkest change in sound and had to date the most full blown clean vocals and simplified riffing; that coupled with the sudden need to coordinate outfits and change the logo). After that, I think it was about finding a happy place between the new "poppier" sound and their more metal-oriented sound.

    STYE was their most blatant attempt at entering the American pop/nu-metal market. Not even a debate really, just listen to it :D but R2R was certainly the beginning of that process. Come Clarity was, IMO at least, their main attempt to fuse the two. They went badly off track with ASOP before once again trying (perhaps successfully) to combine the two again with SOAPF.

    Final_Vision, you mentioned them changing their logo on Reroute, which is true. But they first changed their logo on Whoracle. If you look at their history, they pretty much have changed logo (or font) every 3 albums. Lunar Strain, Subterranean (I'll count it because it is a full EP, and their closest thing to another album), and The Jester Race had the same logo, then Whoracle, Colony, and Clayman had the same one, then Reroute, STYE, and CC had the same (pretty much the same font on them), and now we have two albums with this new logo.

    That's true, but they have generally signified new phases in the songwriting (whether intentional or not). My point was that they simplified the logo as (perhaps) a new attempt at marketing the band. I think it's hard to dispute that they tried to be more marketable with R2R (the whole dressing the same thing), particularly with the songs geared more towards big choruses and hooks. That's all I was saying.

    Point well taken, though.

    Its really sad seing them play the same fucking songs over and over...i mean its always the same setlist, the "hits" from each record starting from R2R.

    And that shitty excuse of "people not moving to older songs" its fucking stupid, people doesnt move because hardcore IF fans are the minority at the live concerts...most of the people there are casuals who only know In Flames "hits". But i dont care, if they dont want to play older songs its their choice.

    But, if you are going to play new songs...DONT PICK ALWAYS THE SAME FUCKING SONGS!!!
    ¿Is it so fucking hard to play any other song from R2R than Cloud Connected or Trigger?...same with STYE,CC and ASOP.

    I swear that if the next time i see IF live they play Cloud Fucking Connected again im going to punch them in the face.

    Let's see how this looks now, 9 years on...

    1. Only For The Weak (+3)
    2. I Am Above (new)
    3. Cloud Connected (-)
    4. Take This Life (-3)
    5. Alias (+6)
    6. I, the Mask (new)
    7. Trigger (-)
    8. Deliver Us (new)
    9. Come Clarity (-7)
    10. The End (new)
    11. Call My name (new)
    12. Voices (new)
    13. (This is Our) House (new)
    14. Pinball Map (+2)
    15. The Quiet Place (-10)
    16. Clayman (Rerecorded) (new)
    17. Burn (new)
    18. Clayman (new)
    19. Bullet Ride (-2)
    20. Crawl Through Knives (-10)

    ... for some reason The Jester's Dance is 21st :D

    ASOP has completely fallen off the map. It had four songs in the list back in 2011, but only one nowadays. As for the songs that dropped off 2011's list...

    Dead End (28th), Reflect the Storm (30th), Leeches (49th), Scream (70th, lol), The Mirror's Truth (34th), My Sweet Shadow (25th), Vacuum (73rd, ouch), Delight and Angers (36th), I'm the Highway (48th), Disconnected (59th).

    So, Come Clarity and ASOP have seen some pretty big losses. STYE was never that popular to begin with. As far as I can tell Jester Race & Clayman have for whatever reason gained in popuarlity. Clayman probably due to the reissue. TJR... not sure. Probably worth noting there are probably a lot less people using last.fm now than there were 9 years ago :D I haven't used it since... 17 June 2018? OK. Must have been by mistake.

    :D

    Last.fm doesn't appear to do album rankings anymore, but the top 4 most listened to in the last 7 days are:

    I, the Mask
    Clayman
    Come Clarity
    Reroute to Remain
