2.Dragonforce's overwhelming desire to write video game music started on Inhuman Rampage. Just because they weren't in a video game prior doesn't change the fact that Herman Li has said they intentionally write "video game metal". This band's first two albums were salvagable, the later two are garbage.
3.The fact that you don't think Torn is at least as good or better than Monday Morning Apocalypse scares me beyond all belief. You can't believe how much it annoys me that you totally ignore their first 4 excellent albums and then praise the absolute downpoint of their career. Torn is much better than MMA, a very solid album that gets back to what Evergrey are all about, the problem is that's kind of hard for you to understand when you don't care about their first 4 albums.
1. It made me want to throw up a couple of times.
2. I don't hate a couple of songs on Inhuman Rampage, but I hate EVERYTHING about Ultra Beatdown.
3. I should be able to objectively judge an album without the context of a band's entire career. There's no "on last year's episode" track on the beginnings of albums, so really I should only judge what I'm hearing. A "return to form" can still be worse than an album that breaks the mold.
