    Agalloch "Pale Folklore"

    I think both records are vastly overrated, and I'm not a fan of any of them, but "Pale Folklore" is a little bit better than "Ride The Lightning". So "Pale Folklore" it is.

    Granted, everyone votes using different criteria, and obviously, we each have our own musical preferences. But comparing these two CDs, in my mind, is a luichrous. Say what you will about what Metallica has become. "Ride the Lightning" is pure brialliance. There isn't a second of weakness on the entire disc. It defined a genre. It has stood the test of time brilliantly. It has had a significant impact on music.

    If anyone thinks people will be talking about "Pale Folklore" in 20+ years, you're smoking crack.

    Not to my ears. Those drums are weak as piss, and as usual the bass is quiet as a mouse. It's not perfect, but it is fucking brilliant.

    The Agalloch forum told me to go with Opeth or Bathory.

    So I'll go with Metallica.

    Agreed, especially about the bass... F U C K, the bass solo in the Call but nooooooo we are barely allowed to even hear it for gay reasons. Still a fucking KILLER album. My first metal album, too.

    I'll disagree with that first part. I think the drums sound awesome. I don't think any drums, anywhere, have ever sounded cooler than Lars' drums in "For Whom the Bell Tolls".:headbang:

    Agalloch - Pale Folklore, it's very close, but it's simply a better album than RtL

    The celebration of your 100th copy-pasting of this statement is at hand. :D

    "Pale Folklore", of course
