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*

Exactly, but apparently you're expecting way too much to really hope that people will gravitate towards this intelligent approach on their own. Instead, many people click on list threads just so they can criticize and act like they know shit about something. It makes them feel important, I guess.

Like you, I like discovering new stuff - which is why I read. I also like sharing the new stuff I discover with others, which is why I post.

Because I'm into stuff like that, and after hearing everyone go on about how awesome it was when I first heard it I was expecting to be blown away, but i was disappointed majorly.
I've lost track of just about everything.
