    Why the hell should I be joking about that? Just because they happen to sell a lot of albums, they're automatically mainstream crap?

    Are you joking?

    Seriously though, I've never been too much of a Coldplay fan, but I really like their new album.

    The Coldplay disc definitely beats all the albums on your list except In Mourning. Gojira is huge slab of shit, Watershed has a couple of worthwhile songs etc. And the Evergrey album really sucks, cheesy as hell :):wave:

    Coldplay's new album hardly beats any of those albums. I guess if you like overproduced, fabricated commercial music it's good, but otherwise no.

    Have you even given the new Gojira album a good, solid listen or the band for that matter? I don't think you have.

    man, no Moonsorrow love that I can see. They didn't really release a new album, but I still really enjoyed Tulimyrsky

    Hey Madtinus, you still feel that this is the case?

    I've really come to love this album, especially Shat Out Of Hell, The 13th Caesar, Sweetest Maleficia (my fav on the album), Darkness Incarnate and Godspeed on the devil's thunder....of course The Death Of Love and Sulphur and Honey are good too...sure.

    The drummer is especially good on this album. There's a lot to like on this album. I hated Thornography, so this makes COF interesting ones again..didn't think that would happen so soon.

    Hehe, I haven't listened to it since. Think I heard the album 2, maybe 3 times only. I'll give it some more attention.

    Nocte Obducta - Sequenzen einer Wanderung is a really good album. It is pretty ambient and progressive, I suppose. I recommend it to everyone.

    Presently, my list is as follows:

    The American Dollar- A Memory Stream
    Anathema- Hindsight
    Ashes Divide- Keep Telling Myself It's Alright
    The Daysleepers- Drowned In A Sea Of Sound
    God Is An Astronaut- God Is An Astronaut
    M83- Saturdays = Youth
    Scar Symmetry- Holographic Universe
    Seba- Return To Forever
    Sigur Rós- Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust
    Textures- Silhouettes

    Keith Canisius' "Ferris Wheel Makeout" is also a contender, but I have yet to hear the album in its entirety. Of course, this list is only based on the albums I have heard, so it stands to reason that there are many other phenomenal albums that haven't made it to my list only because I don't know about them. So, if anyone knows of any deserving music I didn't list (especially in the ways of shoegaze, post-rock and ambient music), please let me know.

    So you're saying Cruelty and the beast was bad?
    Why are they schmukzz now? :D

    Dani has always been the way he has. Always been schmuckzzy..nothing has changed really...except for the constant line-up change that is..but that's just good now and then. At least on this album.

    Btw Ominousinane, do you really feel personality is important to like when it comes to music? Or maybe you didn't mean on a personal level? If so, what did you mean?

    Don't you love a lot of questions? ;)
