5.0 classic
Deftones White Pony
White Pony. A seriously scary record. Expect riff's that could come straight out of your worst nightmare's but yet carry a strong dose of hope with it. Moving basslines and soulfull drumming. The best thing has yet to come. Chino Moreno, a man loved and hated by many. A poet whose soul lies in making the most controversial and confusing lyrics, that he can spew out with anger and emotion. This was the first release with the addition of the DJ "Frank Delgrado". Songs such as Digital Bath and "Pink Maggit" were occupied with serene sound effects, as well as gloomy background noises. As scary this album is, it is one of the best one.

In Flames Colony
Bottom line why I like Melodic Death Metal: The balance between beauty and roughness. The beauty that comes from the lead guitar riff's occupied with harsh vocals, with sometimes a clean vocal throughout. Solo's are fantastically done in this record, the first time Bjorn Gelotte moved to the guitars and Daniel Svennson did the drums. The great build-ups with the cliché but terrific "heavy couplet, melodic chorus". Songs such as Zombie Inc. and Ordinary Story prove that In Flames deserve to be the leading act of the Gothenburg scene.
Insomnium Since the Day It All Came Down
If a metal band would get a price for being the most melodic, it would be Insomnium. To be more specific, Sinc the Day It All Came Down, their second album. Heavy riffage and melodies last for almost an hour long, but never dissapoint. From the intro track, Nocturne, it's easy to hear the gloomy and sad atmosphere in it, and all the way untill the final track "Song of a forlorn son", it never disappears. Although the vocals could indeed variate sometimes, and the constantly melodies can grow tiresome, this album is still one of the best albums around.
ISIS Panopticon
King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King
Every genre has to start somewhere. Progressive rock started with King Crimson's debut, In the Court of the Crimson King. Although there are only 5 songs on it, the album is rather long. All 5 songs are outstanding which all produce their own sound. The album opener is a angry jazzy grudge-song, while the song I Talk To The Wind is a sweet ballad-like masterpiece. Next comes Epitaph with the endless layers creating a thick dark song. Moonchild starts out as one of the most sad melodies before developing into a jam song. The last song is the title track, and stands on is own with the medieval traits. A classic right here.

Deftones Deftones
Deftones (the album) is like the counterpart of White Pony. White Pony had the more mellow songs, like Knife Party but still contained dark things like Rx Queen and Change. Deftones (again the album) is build out of dark songs with only a few mellow sounding songs, like Minerva. The lack of real classics (save for Battleaxe) make this album a 4.5 and not a 5.

Sigur Ros Takk...
Sigur Ros is one of those bands that just express emotion in their songs. The emotional status on this album drives more towards the happy side, with gems such as Hoppipolla, a childish yet terrific single; Glosoli, a sweet song with one of the best climax that a song ever reached; Saeglopur, a song build out of sadness that expresses a hopeful side on it. The only reason why I wouldn't give this a 5 is because of Gong, a song that gets rather annoying over time.

Limp Bizkit The Unquestionable Truth - Part I
Somehow, Limp Bizkit doesn't realize they are the most crappy band on earth. Why do they continue??? After such horrible albums like "Results May Vary" (no, all the results are the same, everyone hates you Fred Durst) or "Hotdog CD" (I'm tired of writing that supid long name). They still think they can suprise the mass, but no, this album is the same. This time they tried something news. They probably thought, hey, lets put "the" in front of all the names. That's cool huh? Uhm, no...

Slipknot Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.
I liked Slipknot for a very long time. Pretty much the whole time I listened to Nu-metal, you may say that they were my favourite nu-metal band after Deftones. Although I was a big fan of them, I never liked MFKR too much. Actually "only one" was the song I really liked, and maybe that slow ballad-like song, I forgot the name... But now, after I've ignored Slipknot for over a year, I listened to MFKR, and I cringed. I never realised how bad Anders voice was, how bland the songwriting was, how cliché the guitar riffs were. It's an inrcedible bad album.
