Complete fucking turd.
Sonically pleasing, musically pretty much worthless. A waste of an interesting guitar tone.
Poorly put-together and frightfully repetitive, though there are some interesting themes in there.
Many cool riffs, and even a few cool tunes, that remain painfully underdeveloped. An album that had the potential to be the continuation that "Det Som Engang Var" never got yet failed to be so through its creators apparent haste, laziness and lack of motivation.
Repetitive and cheesy, but occasionally involved enough to be interesting.
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
The opening track may very well be one of the best black metal tracks ever, certainly the greatest Burzum song, and Tomhet is quite nice. However, the two tracks in the middle are boring, droning and uncreative, and thus the album's overall impact is not half of what it could be.
Sol Austan, Mani Vestan
Surprisingly good. An engaging, compelling and coherent piece of dreamy ambient, suggestive of mythological archetypes through color and tone.
Det Som Engang Var
A continuation of the debut and a transition into Burzum's next stage at the same time. It's a great work with some killer songs and some real coherence and continuity, as well as some interesting choices in color and instrumentation that, if further explored could have led black metal in a very different direction.
An atmospheric tour-de-force. The album seeps into your blood slowly, and before you realize it has contaminated your vision. The world assumes a bleaker note, as if painted with the bleak hues that dominate this impenetrable music. I'm not usually a fan of minimalism, but here it is employed with majesty in deconstructing the ego, layer by layer, bit by bit, until the listener is left alone in silence and totality.
The true masterpiece. A journey to a place far beyond, an abandonment of the socialized self into a feral, dark and violent world. Brilliantly constructed, powerfully evocative riffs melt into each other with sinister ease. This is the release that epitomizes Varg's idea of music "structured like an epic narration." Not only is each song brimming with genius and constructed with admirable craftsmanship, but so is the album as a coherent whole. An experience unlike any other. If "Filosofem" is like a haunting painting, then "Burzum" is the darkest and oldest of tales.
|Looks good to me. Altough i only own|
|"The true masterpiece."|
"Complete fucking turd."
list pretty good overall even though 5 is def 1 for me
|4 above 5 is interesting|
|list is pretty bonkers|
|As far as the ratings go, I tend to ignore the words sputnik associates with the numerical system and simply go for how I compare albums to each other, though I admit I'm pretty messy when it comes to rating.|
|i ignore the words too but you just can't rate hvis 4.0 and s/t 2.5 if you think s/t is better than hvis|
|this is huh wow|
|5 is 1|
|Surprised you haven't got much shit for putting Hvis at 5 haha. 2 is 1 for me|
|5 is 1 and 8 is 10 |
|i could cry but i wont so here's my ranking since it's so relevant|
2, 5, 3, 1, 7, 6, 10, 9, 4,,,,,,,,,,,,,,8
|8 is 1 in terms of comedy|
|5 2 3 1 10 4=6 9 ................ 8|
haven't heard 7 which is kinda weird
|5,3,1,2,7, and idc after that|
|Sorry, but I must disagree with the list. 10 is underrated as hell. Just because Fallen isn't nearly
as good as Filosofem, doesn't mean it's not still good in its own right. I'd tend to put 5 as either 1
i hate that phrase
|5 is his best effort, imo|
|o cool we are featuring bands ranked again|
|I heard 1 for the first time yesterday |
|i fucking swear to god greg features the shittiest of lists|
|Make a better one. I'll feature it.|
|this might be the worst list I've ever seen on here. Also your ratings differ completely from this ranking. |
|Haha, just saw that you gave Battles In The North a 1. Do you even like Black Metal or are why are you making a Burzum list?|
|battles in the north is shit though|
list isn't even that bad it's just that you're all allergic to divergent opinions
stuff like this shouldn't get featured though it looks dumb as shit
|Anything with a description on the albums/bands will get a feature I see|
