Buying Spree!!!

Been on a buying spree for the past month or so due to getting 300 dollars of b-day money. Up to today, I have bought 20 albums with that money. The first 12 on the list i downloaded, the final 8 i own tangibly.
1Between the Buried and Me
Alaska


First album i got with it. Spectacular, with no noticable flaws. This and Colors are about equal in greatness imo.
2Thrice
The Artist in the Ambulance


Tried to get a less metal album, and I believe I chose a good one. Lots of great songs, especially the middle of the album especially (mainly tracks 5-8)
3Orphaned Land
Mabool (The Story of the Three Sons...)


This grows on me with each listen. Perfect mix of death metal, progressive moments, and traditional Israel music.
4Thrice
Vheissu


Almost as good as TAITA, but falls a bit short. "The Earth Will Shake" is currently my favorite Thrice song.
5Death
Symbolic


SoP still bores me slightly, this album does the opposite. Amazing album, every song is a highlight. Possibly my favorite by Death, rivaling ITP
6Necrophagist
Epitaph


The speed and technicallity of this album is breath-taking, and the album gets even better as it progresses.
7Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream


Purchased this cuz Cherub Rock was on guitar hero. I was surprised at how emotional the album was, and how much I could get into most of the songs. Mayonaise is now one of my favorite songs ever, and to this point, and actually brought tears to my eyes. This is probably my favorite non-metal album.
8Prototype
Continuum


Also got this cuz a song on it was on GH. A very speedy, and at times thrashy album. Very solid. I will most likely review this in the near future.
9Redemption
The Origins of Ruin


Saw them live with Dream Theater. Tons of great guitar leads, and some awesome vocals.
10Soilwork
Sworn to a Great Divide


Took me a while to purchase this album after i heard it, but im glad i did now. About on par with Natural Born Chaos, just under Chainheart Machine, and below my personal favorite, A Predator's Portrait.
11Unearth
III: In the Eyes of Fire


All the high praise this site gives this album persuaded me to get it. This was up the hype, as it is near perfect. Only other metalcore album that can compare with this imo is Waking the Fallen.
12Between the Buried and Me
The Silent Circus


Not quite as good as the two releases that would follow, but still fantastic. "Mordecai" and "Ad a Dglgmut" are my personal favorites.
13Blind Guardian
Imaginations From the Other Side


I had heard most of this and the next album prior to purchase. A spectacualr slab of power metal, with the only con being the slightly muddy production on some songs. My second fav BG album behind ANATO.
14Blind Guardian
Somewhere Far Beyond


The title track is possibly my favorite power metal song of all time.
15Shadow Gallery
Carved in Stone


Currently my favorite SG album. Doesnt feel over-stretched,
16Shadow Gallery
Legacy


Very good album, having some of the band's softest, and heaviest moments.
17Norther
Mirror of Madness


Great melo-death in the vain of Children of Bodom.
18Insomnium
In the Halls of Awaiting


Not as good as their more recent albums, but sports and excellent title track.
19Tool
10,000 Days


Other than the filler tracks, one of Tool's most solid. Killer artwork as well.
20Death
Individual Thought Patterns


All killer no filler, incredibly hard to pick highlights.
