    I love In Flames. They have released some amazing music over the years and the live show is awesome!
    But ya know, some people just dont get into other bands and thats alright. I wish you liked them though. They rock!

    I have bands like that too...Opeth, Nevermore...I've tried, but can't quite get there. Some bands just don't do it for you...there's no need to push it. I like a lot of In Flames, but I can see where you're coming from. I think their albums are inconsistent...there are some great songs and the rest are ok. some of the great ones are really great, but the ok songs all kinda sound the same. I'm only talking Lunar Strain thru Clayman...I don't know any of their stuff after that.

    Make a CD of:
    Moonshield
    The Jester's Dance
    December Flower
    Jotun
    Dialogue with the Stars
    The Hive
    Embody the Invisible
    Ordinary Story
    Zombie, Inc.
    Coerced Coexistence
    Bullet Ride
    Pinball Map
    Only For the Weak
    Swim

    That would be my suggestion...all GREAT songs. You won't fall asleep on that.

    + Everlost (both parts). Otherwise, great list of middle In Flames..

    The big difference between Character and Fiction is the emotion behind the music. Character's delivery and pace was more angry and violent, but Fiction adds more melancholy. They're both awesome, either way.

    I think the production and vocals on Lunar Strain suck, so I left that out...it's less accessible for the casual listener. Hargalaten, on the other hand, is beautiful...that's the one with the chick singing, right?

    Nah, Hargalaten is the cool instrumental violin/guitar duet (track 7). The one with the chick singing is Everlost part 2.

    Love all the bands listed here. Including CoB (mainly the old stuff though, the first 3 albums we're killer). I agree with you too Naglfar, I find myself listening to older DT. And The Gallery totally deserves all the hype it gets I reckon. That album is amazing to me. It's probably in my top 3 favourite MDM albums of all time.

    I prefer Images and Words and Awake for DT.

    What are your other 2 MDM favs?

    I meant DT as in Dark Tranquillity, lol. But I still love Dream Theater though, and Images and Worlds is an awesome album too. Actually when I think about i,I wouldn't know how to label my top 3 MDM albums, there's lots of MDM albums I like.

    Dark Tranquillity:The Gallery, In Flames:Colony & Whoracle, Carcass:Heartwork, Ensiferum:Ensiferum, Wintersun:Wintersun, CoB:Hatebreeder & Follow the Reaper, Soilwork:The Chainheart Machine etc.

    Oh...sorry...my bad...that's funny.

    Hatebreeder is the only COB I really enjoy.

    Heartwork is a great album!:headbang:

    hmm i caught myself listening to a band called Sikth lately i dont know if any of you knows this band?

    its worth a listen if you are into progressive death metal...pretty complex stuff but not to much

    Sikth is an awesome band. It's good that you found them. Bland Street Bloom is an incredible song.

    ok, first off, In Flames > Dark Tranquility > everything else, Soilwork is cool too. If you can't get into In Flames, then don't, moron. But make sure you check out At The Gates...kickass MDM. Get Slaughter of The Soul. And In Flames' last 3 albums suck, but they still made the first 5 and a half (the Subterranean EP) and that stuff was all kickass...sucks for you if you don't like them, but then, I can't get into Iron Maiden. For a metalhead, that's like impotence.

    In Flames' earliest work is a lot more fierce and fast than their middle [and usually most recognized] albums. You might enjoy "Lunar Strain" and "Subterranean" better.
