Not to dog on you or anything like that, because I'm digging this list, but it seems this new Converge album is garnering quite a few new fans for them. I've seen tons of people say the same "I didn't like them before, but this album is amazing" sort of thing. Whether it's genuine or bandwagon I can't say, but I think something strange is afoot. Personally, I'll always think they're fiendishly overrated hardcore, but that's just me.
