    Yeah, you're in for a treat with "I" J., it's my favorite Nightingale - it also has a very large booklet with the lyrics from the first three albums in it. "Alonely" and a few other songs that escape right now are just superb.

    Nothing, I like Crimson II. And I actually just put on the first Crimson when I woke up this morning. :kickass:

    I'm picking up Unorthodox on vinyl, just so I can have it when I finally get a turn table (are you listening, Santa?!).

    It's mostly the garbage production on Crimson II that puts me off.

    Crimson II is a decent album, pretty great when it's on, but the keyboards intrude a bit too much at times and it's irksome in parts.

    Other than that, I only have Unorthodox and Crimson. I've heard Nothing But Death Remains, The Spectral Sorrows, and Purgatory Afterglow, and I remember liking them enough to want to buy them, but I haven't...I still need to buy the Pan.Thy.Monium stuff. The first Ribspreader was good, Demiurg is good. Bloodbath was good. I'm interested in hearing the Darkcide/Infestdead split. Maceration was okay. Steel was humorous.

    Yeah, I lean toward the Death Metal side.

    Unicorn and Nightingale are the best Swano projects until Second Sky comes out hopefully sometime before the end of the decade. [/gay]

    I've always liked Alive Again. How do the earlier Nightingale albums compare?

    Never were my thing, but I did enjoy Closing Chronicles and I.

    White Darkness was not bad if you like that sickly sweet buttrock with Swano's seducing croon

    If you're looking for the good Swano shit, just go with EoS, Pan Thy Monium and Odyssey.

    I guess the first Bloodbath EP is cool. Some people like Witherscape. Couldn't get into it.

    The riff at 1:23 is the most essential riff of all time.

    I liked Moontower back in the day. I've thought about re-purchasing it, but it's kind of hard to find for a reasonable price.

    I liked a few songs on it, but it never gave me a stiffy like other Swano projects

    If you're into the non metal swano--unicorn is a must--recently remastered-





    Also hopefully swano finishes second sky before he turns 75 years old.
