    All true exept for the last sentence, that must be a joke.

    Indeed a great debut. Shame they've never even got close to topping it and instead devolved into the Trend Whore Robb Flynn Show.

      The Blackening was a masterpiece.

        Through the Ashes also fucking ruled. Those 3 are actual pretty great.

        Blackening sucks for the most part especially when Flynn whines like a little bitch (even my wife thought he sounded pitiful). It's weak in the riff department (lots of generic thrash), memorable song writing and is too long.
        Ashes was boring as bat shit. Locust was Blackening Mk 2, the last one just boring, long and sounds horrible. Then there's the two Nu-metal turdburgers.
        That leaves the phenomenal Burn My Eyes and good but not great The More Things Change…

        The trend whoring from these guys makes Metallica's worst excesses look kvlt Black Metal – groove metal on first two, Nu-metal on second two, elements of melodic death on fifth, metalcore ever after. And that last song was just metal pop garbage.

        • How the fuck does your wife put up with you if she can't stand an actual man like Robb Flynn.

  • basshole

    Great album but this list is poo (Ghost, lol.). They better shape it up quick. Who is coming up with this list, 25 year olds?

    • Ghost? Sigh. Awful.

    • Kil Xéno

      I like (not love) Ghost, but you're right. This list is pretty shitty O.o
