|Death Albums Ranked|
is this death day? Whatever, tough call but hey
This just has the best feel to it. More focused than Symbolic on the faster tunes
and often more varied in tone, it's got several of Death's best tracks. All round their
In many ways Death's best written album. Good selection of tracks with good
pacing and some of Death's all time best, and not nearly so disjointed as TSOP, just
generally one of their best, but Human's more streamlined and aggressive feel
makes it an easier jam and Symbolic can drag a little.
The Sound Of Perseverance
With some of Death's very greatest tracks like Story To Tell, Flesh And The Power
It Holds and Spirit Crusher, this has some of Death's greatest moments. However,
Death's songwriting can be a little drawn out or disjointed here, and not all of the
riffs hit home, leaving a few sour spots that allows Symbolic and Human to edge
Individual Thought Patterns
Death's easiest jam with a lot of decent tracks of the right length, but it isn't quite
as insipiring as Human throughout. It has some really great songs that are easily
among the band's best (Trapped In A Corner, Overactive Imagination, The
Philosopher, Mentally Blind), but as a whole it doesn't really inspire that much. Still
More polished than Scream Bloody Gore and a bit more exhilarating than Spiritual
Healing, this is the best of the pre-Human Death albums.
All round a fun Death release with some great riffs and songs. A bit less consistent
than Leprosy, but with some very strong highs in Altering The Future, Defensive
Personalities and the title track. Edges Scream by a fair amount.
Scream Bloody Gore
A fun jam and full of primal energy, but worse written than any of their other
albums and not many tracks really qualify as classics. Not as polished as any of the
following albums either.
|Agreed on #1, but I'd put #5 higher.|
|Eh, I couldn't do that. ITP and TSOP are more interesting and the first two obviously slay it dead|
|Fair enough. I still haven't listened to every Death album, I really need to get on that.|
|i'd switch 5 with 4 and 6 with 7.. good list|
|I can't put 7 last (mutilation)|
|why do people dislike ITP so much? I mean mmm trapped in a corner|
|I don't think anyone dislikes it, it's just overlooked|
2nd best death for me
|"why do people dislike ITP so much? "|
no one dislikes it. it's just not as good as the albums that it's sandwiched between.
|dam jokine you think spiritual healing is better than symbolic???|
|i agree with 1, not the others, but hey to each his own|
All Death rules though etc, etc.
|@apert Ya. I'm probably the only one, though they switch places quite often. SH is far to overlooked.|
|This is almost my exact ranking. Switch 1 and 2 (basically tied though) and 6 and 7 switch. |
|PROTECTING THE WEAK POINTS OF THE MIIIIND!!!|
|This is almost the exact way I ranked it on my list, the only difference (if I recall correctly) was that I swapped 1 and 2 haha|
|I can't get a fixed idea of my top Death albums too hard but this is about right give or take|
|First three are spot on.|
|2 1 4 3 5 7 6|
