    Woods 5 and Wintersun: Time take it for me. However, i don't think i ever shared this with you guys. Here's my list of my favorite Autumn-influenced albums on my blog. Check it out. Let me know what you agree/disagree with. Didn't go too far underground with it, just the obvious. http://jackylantern.blogspot.com/

    This is hard, but I think this is it. The top 5 are extremely hard to place!

    1. Deep Dark Woods - The Place I Left Behind
    2. Altar Of Oblivion - Grand Gesture Of Defiance
    3. Denial Of God - Death And The Beyond
    4. Saturnus - Saturn In Ascension
    5. Woods Of Ypres - Woods V (although this album has more emotional value than any other album ever will. I hope!)
    6. The Gathering - Disclosure
    7. Shining - Redefining Darkness
    8. Burzum - Umskiptar
    9. Forgotten Tomb - ...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil
    10. My Dying Bride - A Map Of All Our Failures
