My favourite Amorphis album is 'Elegy', and in fact it is in my top five albums of all time by anyone. Hard to believe that no one in this thread has nominated 'Tales from the Thousand Lakes' which is a true classic. That's the album that was out when I got into them, so there's a special place in my heart for it, but even objectively it's near perfect. My third favourite would then be 'Under the Red Cloud' which I think is the best Tomi Joutsen album, although 'Circle' and 'Eclipse' aren't far behind. I love 'Skyforger' and 'Silent Waters' too of course, although I find 'Under the Red Cloud' and 'Circle' to be the only albums with all killer and no filler. 'The Beginning of Times' is practically all filler unfortunately, possibly with the exception of 'Mermaid'. So top 3 albums in order: 1. Elegy 2. Tales from the Thousand Lakes 3. Under the Red Cloud I also absolutely love the 'Black Winter Day' ep which was actually my very first taste of the band back in 1994. That is one perfect disk. And to the person who, admittedly two years ago, thought 'Elegy' should be re-recorded with Tomi Joutsen, I think that's a TERRIBLE idea. The vocals on 'Elegy' are just PERFECT by Pasi and Tomi K.
