    Dude. The Marshall Mathers LP is easily in the top 3 hip-hop records of the past decade. I understand that not everyone enjoys rap, and especially in your circumstance I could see you coming away with a bad taste in your mouth (so to speak), but you can't deny that Em's wordplay and chops are wizard-level.

    OT: I kind of agree with Ghost Reveries, but Watershed was a lot more so. GR at least had a couple good songs on it. On first listen, Sigh - Hangman's Hymn was a bit underwhelming, but I'm hoping it'll grow on me.

    Um... well... You get a +1 from me. I don't even bother listening when they release albums at this point.

    I felt that about everything post Ashes of the Wake to be honest, Sacrament didn't stick with me and I didn't even bother with anything afterwards.

    ^^ exact same feeling here. I bought As the Palce Burns & Ashes of the Wake and thought they were great - then I bought Sacrement went it came out and thought it was average - listen to the some tracks from Wrath on Youtube - then completely lost interest in the band.

    Newer album by LOG takes a detour from their norm. As a whole I like their older stuff better, but my favorite tracks overall are from wrath and resolution. Randy does some different techniques as well.

    As for St. Anger I think the album would have been better if Lars wasn't involved. Although a song called kill kill kill kill, kill isn't exactly revolutionary either. :lol:

    I was sent the marshall mathers LP by BMG when I was a member cause apparently they considered it the metal selection of the month. I sent it back without listening to it! Owned.

    Ghost Reveries is great, I can't imagine anyone who's into prog or metal not finding a single track they like, it has so much variety. Ah well.

    I just bought Watershed yesterday, time to give it another chance. I haven't heard it since it came out and I thought it was so lame I didn't even bother buying it X_X

    I'm not saying Ghost Reveries was terrible by any means. Baying of the Hounds and Reverie/Harlequin Forest are fantastic tracks, and Beneath the Mire is pretty solid as well. However, songs like Ghost of Perdition and The Grand Conjuration were just complete snoozefests for me. Imo it was just really inconsistent - unlike Watershed, which was consistently bleh (except for Hessian Peel, that song still brought it.)

    Operation Mindcrime 2.

    I was fortunate enough not to purchase St. Anger or Illud Divinum In-anus.

    I mean, I'm not exactly sure what I expected when I bought this, but it was the worst fucking thing I've ever heard.

    If the goal was to make the worst album possible, he succeeded and I must congratulate MJK on his accomplishment. I couldn't even find enough humor in it to enjoy it.

    Also, Dredg's albums after El Cielo are all in consideration. NO WAY THAT'S THE SAME BAND! Leitmotif and El Cielo are two of my all-time favorites. They totally lost their haunting and beautiful sound.

    Have to disagree, amazing album, after a few listens that thing is awesome, obviously has a more groove base than their past stuff but compared to the others who are in their genre Lamb of God is still the best

    I think Catch Without Arms still sounds like the same band, just all the songs are designed around catchy choruses and they don't have the transition tracks or anything. It may be heresy to say it, but I think I like Catch Without Arms as much as El Cielo. After that though, yeah they kinda lost me.
