Come on, it's Asking Alexandria! Anyway, on a less condescending note, whenever I ponder what 'perfection' really is, I turn to "Stand Up and Scream". Asking Alexandria's magnum opus, and the best metal record of the decade, lacks any bad moment or slip up. It begins with the malicious "Alerion", which transcends into the best song of the decade, the orgasmic ""Final Episode (Let's Change the Channel". Every song is a highlight. Yes. Every song. I could ramble on about the vocal melodies in "A Candlelit Dinner with Inamorta", or the monstrous intro to "Nobody Don't Dance No More", the pure evil of "Hey There Mr. Brooks" or the beauty captivated in less than two minutes in "Hiatus". Need more? How about the soothing "If You Can't Ride Two Horses at Once... You Should Get Out of the Circus", or the magic in "A Single Moment of Sincerity"? Everything is perfect here. This is the best progressive metal album ever made, and is Asking Alexandria's 'tour de force' if you will. No progressive band will ever top this, and AA will probably never even come close to it again. The next time somebody asks you how to exemplify 'perfection'; use "Stand Up and Scream" as an example. It's pure genius. Bring Me The Horizon There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen ItThere is only one thing that matters here, and its going to keep all the old nancyboy metal fans from appreciating this: HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS IS HEAVYMutiilation Remains Of A Ruined, Dead, Cursed SoulRas Algethi Oneiricon - The White Hypnotic4.5 superbLuciferion Demonication (The Manifest)Pathfinder Beyond the Space, Beyond the TimeSummoning Old Mornings Dawn4.0 excellentFalling In Reverse The Drug In Me Is YouPyrexia Sermon of MockerySort Vokter Folkloric Necro Metal3.5 greatCaladan Brood Echoes Of Battle3.0 goodAfter The Burial RareformCynic Traced in AirDeath SymbolicGorguts Colored Sands2.0 poorConverge Jane DoeDeathspell Omega Paracletus1.5 very poorBetween the Buried and Me The Parallax II: Future Sequence1.0 awfulCircle Takes The Square As the Roots UndoI shall freely admit that I have never actually listened to this. While some of the more pedestrian minds on this reviewing site may scoff at such an audacious a priori judgment, a refined and sagacious mind such as my own can arrive at universal truths in the total absence of examination, through the rigorous science of deduction.
