After is a good album, with some special songs. But some of them, particularly A Grave Inversed, I struggle to find any redeeming features in.

Sax parts do that to me as well. Nothing quite gets to me like long saxophone parts.

I consider that to be the worst song on the album, but I still think it's good.

I'm gonna buy this album soon. It's one of a few from this year that have inspired me to do so...I think it could fare rather well come January if this year is weak relative to last year as I expect.

I am a big fan of Emperor and Ihsahn. That being said, I just could not get into this album. The sax parts ruined for me any potential this album may have had.

I'm a total sax nerd, so I loved this album naturally. However it's taken 3rd on my list because of Triptykon and Heathen, but The Ocean could well take the top as well.

This year is turning out great to me, with some possible other releases coming out. Last year there were some truly amazing albums, but there was a bit of a drop off at one point in my top 10...this year it seems there are a lot of great albums, but none the quality of last years.

This year kind of sucks for me compared to last year so far. Based on what I actually know is coming out and what I've heard so far, I'll be hard-pressed to put together a top ten of albums I truly love.

I agree. And I thought last year sucked compared to the year before.

losing my faith in new music oh fuck

...Actually this year isn't terrible so far it's just that 2008 was a damn awesome year for me, and 2009 was just above average.

edit: more on topic, i can't decide whether or not i'm interested in this album

I think by the end of the year it will turn out like this for me as well. It's just that as of right now, 2010 is pretty terrible.

I think what makes years good are the little discoveries you make along the way. I bet you'll find smaller bands releasing amazing albums throughout the year. It will be those bands that make the year good.

A lot of Metalcore albums coming out this year...
