Ranking favourite bands: Gojira's discography

My personal ranking of Gojira's studio albums from their debut Terra Incognito to their hitherto latest release Magma. Gojira has always been one of my favourite bands so expect some gushing in these descriptions.
Terra Incognita

By far the most eccentric album Gojira has ever released, which still very clearly shows their death metal roots. Moreover, the production and Gojira's compositional talents aren't as impressively on display on this album. However, this album does pack a decent punch of brutality; the quality of the band was certainly already there, that remains abundantly clear.
The Link

One of their earlier works, which preceded the amazing FMTS. It contains many of the elements that make Gojira such a fantastic band: brutal riffs, lovely transitions, strage tempo's, strange but hard-hitting breakdowns. For that it's still an album worth a listen.

This album marks the moment Gojira added some distinctive changes to their signature sound, but this did not prevent this album from packing both an emotional punch and containing some amazingly brutal compositions. Especially the vocal perfomance by J. Duplantier on this album is admirably poignant. Another superb album in my opinion.
L'Enfant Sauvage

I listened to this album roughly five or six times a day before I created this list and it's far better than I remebered. The drum patterns, the creative riffing, the powerful vocals, the albums general theme, the transitions, the guitar work, man it's all there. Fantastic stuff, especially the latter half of the album is mind blowing in so many ways. The Gift of Guilt for example, what a song.
The Way of All Flesh

This album is perhaps Gojira's most progressive effort to date. The production on this thing is fantastic, the drumming is beyond me, the riffing is so aesthetically pleasing and the compositions are excellent. Moreover, the lyrics are once again really something worth paying attention to. The Art of Dying also remains one of my most beloved songs ever made, great stuff man.
From Mars to Sirius

To me this is an undisputed masterpiece. From the brutal breakdowns, to the magical drumming by M. Duplantier, the creative riffing, the excellent transitions, brutal vocals, profound lyrics or the masterful composition, this album is the shit in every way. The outro to In The Wilderness, man, always sends chills down my spine. Absolutely amazing.
