|Diary of Dreams - my album ranking|
A ranking of one of my favourite darkwave bands.
|1||Diary of Dreams|
My favourite album of them. I love the album cover and sometimes have it as desktop background on pc. The dreamy, melancholic music fits perfectly with the blue album cover. Psychoma is also in my top 10 of my top 100 electronic albums. All songs are great. This will always be a classic to me, since I discovered it in 2009.
|2||Diary of Dreams|
End Of Flowers
Also a great album. Again a great album cover fitting with the music. Great to listen to in october, or cold days in general and when it's not too sunny. Melancholic as always, but also kind of romantic. 8 songs on it are excellent. I love to listen to this when I have a darkwave phase (with other bands like The Frozen Autumn, Deine Lakaien, Girls Under Glass, Chandeen, Clan Of Xymox and many others).
|3||Diary of Dreams|
Bird Without Wings
The longest and most epic sounding album. 6 of 10 songs are over 7 or 8 minutes long! Perfect for snowy days.
|4||Diary of Dreams|
Their first album. The colours I associate with this album are dark green and brown, it smells of earth, and grass. Very atmospheric and underrated. From 1994 this was the time where darkwave still was very alive.
|5||Diary of Dreams|
This was my first release of them in early 2007. Still great and it always brings me back to that time.
|6||Diary of Dreams|
Still very enjoyable from time to time. For me this was their last very good album (and better than One Of 18 Angels and Freak Perfume).
|7||Diary of Dreams|
This album has its moments but DoD's best time was already far behind them. Still a nice listen with songs like Wahn!Sinn?, Never Tell The Widow and 21 Grams Of Nothing.
|8||Diary of Dreams|
Like (if), it's solid. Favourite songs: Remedy Child, Congratulations, The Valley, Hypo)Cryptick(Al and Son Of A Thief.
|9||Diary of Dreams|
One of 18 Angels
In 2000, this was the album that really changed DoD's sound into more danceable synthpop-tunes. Alas it's too predictable for me sometimes with far less atmosphere than albums like Psychoma, End Of Flowers and Cholymelan, even MenschFeind. But there are great songs on it like Rumours About Angels, Babylon and Darker.
|10||Diary of Dreams|
Well I still like it sometimes, but this isn't what I love about Diary of Dreams.
