    122 pages into the thread and you have an idea about what might make it good? It already is a good reference. Just ask the poster about an album if interested. Otherwise it gets too bogged down. This is basically a brag thread, right? If you have to review the albums... I mean, hell, I usually post what I got right after getting them. I have no idea what they're like! But maybe someone does, and a conversation starts.

    It's a good thread. Leave well enough alone.

    ^^^ Ok. It was just to make it more constructive. I'm seeing a lot of album here but I don't know which I should pay attention.

    V ...I don't know which I should be interested in, that's the point. That's why I ask everyone to do that :). They should all be happy :).

    Ask someone about the ones you're interested in! :) I've found so much good music through this thread. The folks here are generally happy to let you know how they're liking what they've gotten.

    And if the album/band is that good, someone will probably post a thread dedicated to the them anyway.

    Okay, so it's been a while. Here's my eMusic DL's since about November....

    Motley Crue - Theatre of Pain (nostalgia is sweet)
    Umphrey's McGee - Safety in Numbers (pretty decent jam band/prog with solid songs)
    My Dying Bride - For Lies I Sire (soooooo good!)
    Evile - Enter the Grave (basically KEA/RTL era Metallica...)
    Virgin Black - Elegant...and Dying (disappointed...maybe it'll take a few listens?)
    Strapping Young Lad - Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing [re-issue] (it's Devin, and I love it)
    Steve Vai - Alien Love Secrets
    Devin Townsend - Terria (I might like it better than Ocean Machine)
    Sigur Ros - Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust
    Sahg - Sahg 1 (maybe worships at the throne of Ozzy era Sabbath too much)
    Lumsk - Troll (what a surprise! Beautiful female vocals.)
    Enslaved - Frost (not my fave by them, but good)
    Wolves in the Throne Room - Malevolent Grain (good, but not as good as Diadem or 2 Hunters)
    ZZ Top - Live From Texas (classic songs done well)
    Genghis Tron - Cloak of Love (I have to be in the mood. Weird, but well done)
    Black Mountain - In the Future (sounds like the classic rock album I didn't know I was missing)
    Acid Mother's Temple and the Cosmic Inferno - Starless and Bible Black Sabbath (a bit repetitive for my tastes)
    Candlemass - Nightfall (I wish I knew about this when it came out!)
    The Hauted - Versus (meh...there's much better Haunted)
    Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun (beautiful!!!)
    Diamond Head - Am I Evil? (there is some great stuff here. Weird that they never had a lot of success)
    The Blizzard of '05 - S/T (kinda power pop, I guess, from artist Bleu. Great songwriter and singer.)
    Septic Flesh - Communion (Good stuff)
    Return to Forever - The Anthology (Awesome fusion w/ Chick Corea et al. GET IT!)
    Genghis Tron - Dead Mountain Mouth (good weirdness)
    Earth - Hibernaculum
    Best of Nuclear Blast: 20th Anniversary Collection (very meh)
    Tool - 10,000 Days
    Immortal - Battles in the North
    Astor Piazzolla - El Porteno (just awesome tango on the classical guitar! Great, great stuff!)
    Bleu - Happy Birthday EP
    Agalloch - The Mantle (not as impressed as I thought I'd be)
    The Fireman - Electric Arguments (Paul McCartney in a more prog/dark mode...a grower)

    How do you like this one? I had bought it but I gave it away because I couldn't really get into it. Although the sound and the atmosphere are great and the riffs are good it was way too repetitive for me and I always got bored after a few minutes. :( Lateralus is better.

    It hasn't really done it for me yet. A few songs are decent, but for the most part, I'm kind of disappointed by it.

    Hard to beat a gem like Lateralus.

    BTW....great list, Soundave. I'm especially glad to hear that I'm not the only one who didn't quite get the appeal of The Mantle. It's very good but didn't quite live up to what I was expecting, I suppose.
