Converge Ranked

Converge albums in the order I believe them to be, best to worst.
Jane Doe

An absolute masterpiece. Never gets old no matter how many times I listen. A truly definitive release - so profound and heartfelt, every track is amazing.
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Right off the bat with The Saddest Day, the material here is raw and vicious. Contains some of the band's best songs, such as Dead and Color Me Blood Red. Bannon's vocals are hideously frantic on this too, makes the album what it is.
You Fail Me

Superb album, flows so damn well and introduces a more experimental aspect of the band. Great concept and again, every track present does something. Particular highlights would have to be Last Light, Drop Out and Eagles Become Vultures.
All We Love We Leave Behind

Shows that the band are still producing unrivalled material. Displays some of Ballou's most complex guitar work to date as well. The band are still at the top of their game despite being in the business for over 20 years.
No Heroes

Not as hard hitting as some Converge albums are but definitely holds its own in the genre as a very decent album indeed. Vengeance, Lonewolves, Trophy Scars and To the Lions are all exceptional.
When Forever Comes Crashing

Very hardcore influenced, also contains several songs where the band begin to experiment with their sound a bit more, such as on The Lowest Common Denominator and Two Cents.
Axe to Fall

Probably my least favourite Converge LP but it is still a cut above everything else in the genre. The title track is mindblowingly good, as are some of the later tracks but overall, not as profound as other releases.
Unloved and Weeded Out

Some great rare tracks and recordings. Locust Reign is phenomenal.
Caring and Killing

A good collection of interesting songs but no material present here has any particular wow factor. Converge at their most primitive I feel.
Halo in a Haystack

Pretty much the same as the above - I'd say they are equal in quality.
