By the way, I can't wait until you get jaded. A top 50 and you think 41 of them are "really good?" Bahaha. I heard around 75 this year and would only wholeheartedly recommend maybe 30-35.

I didn't see your review on this one, actually.

I listened to around 80 and I think I got a great crop this year. Maybe "really good" is a little bit of an overstatement, but my spectrum of adjectives is really wide . The truth is that I thought all of my top 20 were good enough to be in my top 10. The difference in quality between 20 and 10 isn't enormous.

Ah, I did not know you listened to thirty that didn't make the cut. I thought 50 was your worst and by 41 you loved them.

It's all good. If you check out the first post of my thread, it's the first album reviewed.

Oh believe me...I listened to some bad albums. If you read the entirety of my new BMTH interview, you'd want to read some postivism.

I didn't really dig that concept, but I can see other people digging it.

But most black metal bands I listen to don't even achieve that type of atmosphere. It just sounds like they're using shitty production so that they can save money to spend on copies of the Satanic Bible or whatever. A good example is Black Witchery. I downloaded their 2000 album, I think, and it sounded awesome on my computer. Then I synced it to my iPod and played in the car, and it sounded so weak. That really pissed me off.
Very little of that makes sense to me.

I need to hear that Cardiac Arrest album, I've only heard awesome reviews of it.

If Arsis was the worst album I listened to all year, I'd be ecstatic.

This is a pretty anticlimatic thread for me since I know where it's going. Nevertheless, it's good to hear more detailed explanations. I think I had Orphaned Land about 15-20 spots higher, but considering it started number one on my list, it's still quite a drop. :P

Well then, I am the second.

EDIT: Now that I've read MPF's posts, make that the third.
