|Top 5 Albums I Can't Turn Off|
A bunch of albums I always find myself hitting the play button on...
The Illusion of Democracy
When I'm in the mood for something heavy, this is what I turn to now. It
has spoiled all other metalcore for me, because this presents an attack
from all sides with unparalleled musicianship (ok, well, with the exception of
the vocals being nothing but screams). Truly awesome and a shame that
the group disbanded.

Animals as Leaders
Okay, so at first I really wasn't all that into this album, but it's really grown
on me. There's some sort of catchiness to Tosin's playing that eventually
just grabs you and keeps you coming back over and over again. Completely
different from Reflux, but still fantastic.
Somehow, I keep coming back to this album, of all of Devy's. It's got such
raw purity to it and seems a bit more balanced than his later efforts. The
album is just agreeable for so many situations I can't get over it.
|2||Scale the Summit|
Carving Desert Canyons
Possibly the best instrumental prog ever. This entire album creates such
soundscapes and incorporates such musical mastery in a subtle way that
Traced In Air
This album is just so beautiful and unique... It's like ear candy and I can't
get enough of it, it seems.
|I was hooked on 1 and 2 for a while a few months ago. Pretty stoked for Re-traced. / sick bass bro.|
|Right Now for me, in no particular order:|
Unearth- III: In the Eyes of Fire
Insomnium: Above the Weeping World
Iron Maiden: Powerslave
Dark Tranquillity: Fiction
BTW: 1 kicks ass
