    I always say 1995 is one of the best. Haven't thought about it for years though. I still buy albums from 1991 though, quite a bit it seems.

    Good call with 1997 though. I'd say 5 of those albums are near masterpieces, and I should really give In the Woods... another shot.

    and fucking omnio, man

    one of the few albums that i can listen at any time to because it suits every mood

    it's one of the only metal albums i know of that is genuinely uplifting and life-affirming without being stupid gay shit


    anyway, here are some more selections for your consideration, all from my personal 1997 collection:

    Weirdly I was considering what my favorite 5 year stretch of metal was... And I decided 94-99 fucking takes it over anything in the 80s even

    I started listening to metal in 1982 if you count Led Zeppelin.

    I am growing old. There is no wisdom in this greybeard tree.

    I found my CD-R copy from back in the RC Trading Dayz, I think Carbonized sent me this. I wonder whatever happened to him?

    Not sure why I don't particularly care for this. Years ago when I first heard it I wasn't into this type of moody metal but I am these days. I think I'm digging it this time...

    *thinks of Ellestin*

    ...yep, this is quite good. :Spin:

    also Russian River Brewing Company (maker of Pliny the Elder/Younger) was founded 1997


    this is quite possibly true for me as well, it was definitely true 10 years ago

    truly

    they are albums i still listen to regularly

    i had ALMOST no real embarassing period where i listened to stupid shit, nearly everything i was once into (as far as metal goes) i am still into more or less

    which is cool
