    Inspired from the multi-page, who knows why, In Flames thread...


    'The Jester Race'...what an amazingly average album. Not BAD. But so fragmented. There's a great EP trapped in there somewhere. And the mix is flat.

    I wonder how long it'll be till the full-on ohiogrinder-omni flame-war. Just put each other on ignore now.

    Anyhow, the mix on TJR allows the guitar melodies to dominate = what it's supposed to sound like. The flat mix takes the emphasis off the drumming, making it less propulsive. I think it works a lot better that way tbh.

    Also, the songs are well-written and it's really not a very long album. Graveland, Wayfaerer, and The Jester's Dance could go, but all the other songs are awesome.

    I just realised Jeff Walker is starting to look a lot like Bill Oddie

    Probably not very controversial at all... but death metal from the early 90's > all the rest.

    self-evident actually.

    *edit* what i mean is that early 90's death metal is clearly superior to other kinds of death metal... not all other kinds of music.

    I can think of a few albums from recent days that beat a lot of 90s shit

    for example, The Chalice Of Ages

    Metal archives agrees with sputnik, II and III are rated higher than I on both sites.

    Also, why is sputnik shit?

    666 International is probably the best black metal album ever. There, I said it.

    But I don't fucking care about fucking Danzig. Look, shitnikmusic does nothing better than M-A or RYM and there NO fucking need to ever visit that site. I was now listening to Funebrarum so I searched it on sputnikmusic to prove my point. There is no info whatsoever, just their album listed with TWO stupid ratings. When you search it on M-A or RYM, you get all the info, EPs, demos, more ratings and reviews. See?

    It's important in terms of avant-garde/industrial Black Metal, but even in that sub-genre there are superior albums, like Generator and, predating it, In the Streams of Inferno.

    Prometheus is better than Equilibrium for sure. Also, I agree with the folks who say that Blessed is better than Altars.

    You must get Login: Satan. Less experimental but better riffs.

    I liked Solarkult but... Login: Satan??? That's got to be a candidate for worst album title ever.
