In / Casino / Out

This album contains the essence of post-hardcore elements in my opinion. It has the raw production, the clever arrangements, hooks and often big choruses, trimmed down to only 11 songs and the albums flows flawlessly. I know a lot of people would argue that Relationship of Command has better production, more stand out tracks and bigger influence, but this album just contains the essence of ATD-I and all the elements that made this band stand out from the crowd in the late nineties, right before the band eventually made it big and imploded afterwoods.

Relationship of Command

This is the album where ATD-I made it big and was being hailed as the new "Nirvana". The album is quiet frankly an explosion of energy and anger, combined with great hooks and more polished production than found on their other records. The album does not make the leap in songwriting, they made from their first to their second album, but the album as a whole flows perfectly and makes it clear why critics and the mainstream audience finally stood up and took notice.

Acrobatic Tenement

This is their first album and despite the production or maybe the lack of production on the album, the songs still stand out and it is clear that the band already had a unique twist on the post-hardcore genre even in their early years. I would not recommend starting out with this one if you are a newcomer to the band, but it is worth checking out once you get into the band and the album still holds some amazings songs like: Ebroglio, Initiation, Schaffino and Porfirio Diaz.
