Well-done/placed Breakdowns

Sparingly used breakdowns are a beautiful thing in my opinion. If you think otherwise then you're probably jaded. List is breakdowns that fit perfectly.
1He Is Legend
I Am Hollywood


I Am Hollywood - Because, well... I AM HOLLYWOOD
2Every Time I Die
Hot Damn!


Floater - Don't let us dreamers grow up to be dead men. Drown us at birth, save her some time. Drag the lake, you'll find it full of love.
3The Dillinger Escape Plan
Ire Works


82588 - "I know truth will set you free." I don't know why I love this so much but I got it tattooed on my chest as soon as the album came out so call me an idiot.
4Meshuggah
Catch Thirtythree


Dehumanization - Because it's the heaviest breakdown I can think of. And Jens holds that YAHHHHHH for like 15 seconds.
5The Ocean
Precambrian


Tonian - Those triplets absolutely fly off the fretboard. They are so fast the notes are almost indistinguishable.
6La Dispute
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...


The Castle Builders - "We stay bright as lightning; we stay loud as thunder"
7Misery Signals
Controller


Labyrinthian - Fantastic binary breakdown with excellent overlaying vocals.
8Animals as Leaders
Animals as Leaders


CAFO - Easily the best song they've ever done.
9Glassjaw
Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About


Lovebites and Razorlines - Perfect lyrics about sucking dicks that cum lead and only shit that gj can pull off.
10Ever Forthright
Ever Forthright


Dispose of Your Optimism - This song is the perfect example of good breakdown/bad breakdown. I tend to like the first breakdown that happens around 2:40. Something about fast, twangy breakdowns make them much better than the slow, resonating open breakdowns like that happens around 5:38 in this song. Fast and multiple notes is always better than slow with only one chord.
