My threshold on here for metal albums is 3.8 ish unless I’m already into the band, if they haven’t got any release around that mark I’m not interested. I’ll become less fussy in time but that’s my ‘starting point’... plenty of 4+ stuff out there I still haven’t heard.



Eventually I’ll find my niche(s) & then I can lower the average.

Mine is 3.5 usually. Although there are some bands I like where albums averages are lower.

Damn 3.8 on here or RYM is a godsend haha

But yeah I see what you mean. It makes total sense to start with the critically acclaimed stuff and then moving down from there.

there are some albums that are severely underrated on sput, like Lurker of Chalice has 3.7 on rym which woul translate to like a 4 here, but instead it has a 3.6 (it got better over the past couple of years, I think it used to be a lot lower). that's the problem with a smaller tighter community sput has got, it's more prone to bandwagoning, positive or negative.



but yea, RYM for the ratings, Sputnik for the people [2]

I'm not a slave to the formula bloc, I read between the lines with At The Gates' 'Red Sky' & decided the 3.6 average was an anomaly. Pleased I gave it a shot because it's probably in my top 15 metal albums now.

I really love the title track off this, one of the saddest and most gripping songs I've heard. The other songs not so much though, unfortunately. Still I don't have the heart to give this anything lower than a 4.0 for some reason

Starless, I was there last night - what’d you think of the show? I’m looking forward to what other songs they play tonight. hoping for cannibals and trigger. really want to see them play home wrecker as well, or maybe even one of the unreleased songs

I didn't really used to listen to Converge but this album is amazing. Except for the couple of songs, everything is kind of psychotic and heavy. I definetly want more

Go backwards, the one before this would be a good follow up & Axe to Fall is accessible too (but completely different).

Yeah...definitely go backwards...the two previous ones are better than this one, heavier, keep in mind that some songs will grow on you the more you listen to them

RYM is good for the ratings, but they unfortunately severely underrate some genres. The writeups can be cancerous too

If anything this is getting worse on repeated listens, absolutely no depth here whatsoever. Might be dropping my rating.

@robot im so mad they played trigger. song was terrible.



amazing show, but again, when ur the best at this im gonna be butthurt I dont get your best songs. Its easy to see they are aging and bannon cant do too many screaming-vocal-intense songs especially in a row, but still loved it.



Reptilian almost brought the building down and last light was a WONDERFUL surprise
