Death Ranked

So this is my first attempt at a 'ranked' list. Hope this won't get me too much hate, but Death are a very hard band to rank, seeing as they have such a consistent discography. I don't dislike any of their albums; in fact I only have one rated below a 4.
Scream Bloody Gore

Still a great album, but my main problem lies with the production. It's a bit too muddy for my liking and the riffs can be hard to hear at times. Other than that it's a great album. 3.5
Spiritual Healing

I would say it's overlooked, but then again I have it down as 6th so I can't really say that. But yeah, this album began to mark the shift from traditional death metal to a more technical side. 4.0

Definitely a step up production wise from Scream Bloody Gore. 4.0

I found it really hard to rank the top 4 in order. This is where they really established their sound as a tech-death band, and boy is this a killer album. It's scary to think at this point that they just got better. 4.5
Individual Thought Patterns

There's something about this album that just pips Human. Perhaps it's the longer track time, or maybe it's the fact that the bass got a revamp in the studio and is a vital aspect of the album. 4.5
The Sound of Perseverance

The guitar talent in this album is unbelievable, and Chuck really is at the top of his game here. The cover of Painkiller is pretty sweet too. 4.5

In my opinion, Chuck's vocals are at their best here, finding a nice balance between his low grunts in Scream Bloody Gore and the ear-piercing highs in The Sound of Perseverance. Everything else it top notch, and there's no let up. Everything Death was culminated with this album. 5.0
