|Cutting My Fingers Off |
|17 is so true. I hate it when the first song is the best. Makes it seem like the rest of the album is disappointing in comparison |
|Siameeez dreeem |
|Aphex Twin - ... I Care Because You Do (Arid Avid Jam Shred)|
|Pink Floyd- soycd I-V|
|16 is interesting pick. It's def one of the best on the album|
|pecan tree > dream house|
|@Sharkattack It only works when the rest of the album is almost up to par and the first track just happens to be my favorite. It sucks for albums like Sister Cities and Handwritten where the rest of the album just never even comes close to that starting high point|
|1, 7, 14, 22(obviously), 25, 26 agree|
Antony & the Johnsons - Hope There's Someone
The Knife - Silent Shout
Lucio Battisti - Abbracciala

Paramore - Brand New Eyes (Careful)
Passion Pit - Tremendous Sea of Love (Somewhere Up There -- again, only if you don't count interludes)
Soilwork - The Living Infinite (Spectrum of Eternity ... in a HUGE way)
Wolf Alice - Visions of a Life (Heavenward)
|Best song on 12 is Tornado of Souls by far|

also this is a long drive 
|@ProjectFreak Wait you pick Livin Ain't Easy over Tellin Lies? That's a first|
And I'm not a huge fan of Sister Cities overall and the opener stands out to me the most. The closer feels a tad cliche and doesn't hold a candle to some other TWY closers or build-ups
And I forgot about Jamie All Over
@bloc Yes. Yes it is. Fite me irl
|Reptilia is x10000000 better than anything else on that album smh|
|After the party is def my fav off that record but like the whole thing is gold sans bad Catholics so you cant really go wrong |
Used to think livin ain’t easy sucks and then it clicked hard. Still not one of the better songs but look at its fucking competition
|bloc do you not love BLOC party??|
|agree with lots of picks here. Some other notable ones for me include|
BROCKHAMPTON - "BOOGIE"
Elder - "Compendium"
Everything Everything - "Night of the Long Knives"
Fugazi - "Waiting Room"
GY!BE - "The Dead Flag Blues"
GY!BE - "Storm"

Sigur Rós - "Untitled 1"
The Dear Hunter - "Bring You Down"
THE NOVEMBERS - "Eien no Fukusei"
The Weakerthans - "Everything Must Go!"
Thursday - "For The Workforce, Drowning"
|best song on saturation is star tho|
|mortifier, I forgot the title track wasn't the closer haha. Tellin Lies is definitely better than Livin Ain't Easy, but I'll take After the Party over either one, and Your Wild Years over all of them|
|5 is the first thing for me that came to mind when i read the title. Not that the rest of the album is bad, but it's so utterly beautiful it shits all over the rest of the tracks|
|Oh and 17 and 25 are kinda wrong, the closers on those albums are much better. |

|DAMMIT I FORGOT ABOUT PAINKILLER HOW COULD I|
@ProjectFreak oh gotcha, yeah After The Party is such a terrific song, I can definitely see why people would pick it over the rest of the record
|After the Party is my favorite as well, its crazy how much that track grew on me|
|Agalloch - Limbs|
Sigur Ros - Brennisteinn

I'll get back to you on some all-time ones. I know Death's Symbolic is one for sure though.
|I hate when albums are like this, the rest of it feels deflating (especially when the first song is really standout)|
gotta say on 32 I think 'The Royal We' is better, although admittedly it's partly because the end of 'There's No Secrets...' feels like the former's intro :)
|24 needs more love here. Criminally overlooked stuff.|
|"Suicidal Tendencies - You Can’t Bring Me Down"|
Ah yeah thats another great pick
|Agreed so hard on Raining in Kyoto, album really disappointed me.|
New Scream > Cutting My Fingers Off, though
|A few more...|
Metallica - Blackened
Anathema - Deep
Sonic Youth - Schizophrenia
Sparklehorse - Don't Take My Sunshine Away
Stimming - Prepare
Sufjan Stevens - Futile Devices
System of a Down - Prison Song
Ministry - N.W.O
|' "Alice In Chains- Jar Of Flies - Rotten Apple"|
'Nutshell' is even better so void
|nah rotten apple>|
|Both hard 5 tunes though|
|both are like equal yea. I’d give it to nutshell tho prob|
|Opeth - The Leper Affinity|
Rush - 2112, Hemispheres
Mastodon - Oblivion
Converge - Concubine/Fault and Fracture
Yes - Close to the Edge
Alice in Chains - Them Bones (though the entire album is 5/5)
And yeah, I have to agree with Doof. Nutshell is better
What a way to open an album. Also on the Anathema theme Untouchable Pt.1 undoubtedly
|"bloc do you not love BLOC party??"|
You know I do lol
|Untouchable Pt 1 is a good pick...Gathering of the Clouds is an important song for me too is why I didn’t put that one up |
|Yeah another good tune I just never listen to that whole album anymore but Pt.1 still gets very regular spins. It's probably the best song with bad lyrics I've ever heard lol|
|Doof idk about Prison Song being best from Toxicity, but I also have to say picking a top track for that album is crazy hard for me personally. I'd argue Psycho is best and also incredibly underrated.|
|Awwhhh I forgot about Prison Song, that's actually my fav SOAD song|
Also I agree that Nutshell is better than Rotten Apple
|31 is such a jam|
|12 would be pretty much on everyone's list of this category|
|Disagreed on Doolittle hard|
"Dead" is my fave on there, and Debaser doesn't even crack top 5 for me
|Also disagreed on Ziggy. "Soul Love" is my fave on there|
and Without a Sound "Over Your Shoulder"
|Also this list needs Ulver - Bergtatt, I Troldskog faren vild is hands down their best song.|
|Paramore - Brand New Eyes|
Silversun Pickups - Better Nature
Ben Howard - Noonday Dream
Avenged Sevenfold - City of Evil
a ton more I'm blanking on
