I agree to an extent. The albums between White Pony and Diamond Eyes sucks. But I dig everything else.

I have yet to see a black metal list with 9 BM picks and Deftones. Just sayin'
No it's still Deftones, but Agalloch is pulling 2nd place. I'm talking overall hipsters, not just the two links on this thread. And Marrow Of The Spirit is my favorite album this year.
*Also my original post is chalk full of sarcasm, hipsters mean nothing to me*
