Omni is awesome.
at least I try.
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.
*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
great album but LOL
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?
That IS controversial.
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.
Not to mention Blacklodge's Solarkult.
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.
