I like The Blackening but it must be the most overrated of the decade for me.

Actually I think those 2 albums make an interesting comparison. What makes The Blackening so incredible to me is the riffs. I don't find the songs too long at all when there are interesting time changes and great riff after great riff. Sprinkle in some bad ass solos and interesting, cool lyrics and I'm all about it. Now I Lay Thee Down is one of my favorite songs in the last 10 years and is nothing like the rest of the album. It's probably the only song that reminds me of Burn My Eyes on the entire cd. I remember hearing some of these songs live and being totally blown away. Halo for instance is incredible live.

Nothing makes a song seem too long like a boring 2 minute intro or dumb lyrics. When you add a boring intro to almost every song it becomes tedious and makes you despise certain songs or just FF'd through the beginning of every song. There isn't a FF moment on The Blackening to me...
that's interesting, I actually liked some of the long intros on TFF, see mother of mercy, starblind for reference...

5. Resurrection-Chimaira
4. Mechanize-Fear Factory
3. The Impossibility of Reason-Chimaira
2. Alive or Just Breathing-Killswitch Engage
1. The Blackening-Machine Head


there's a lot I could say here, but first thing that comes to mind is, how can you have two soilwork albums on this list and neither one of them be either natural born chaos?

stabbing the drama? really? I love that album too but it doesn't hold a candle to natural born chaos IMO.

also not sure trivium's the crusade belongs on anyone's top anything list. Just my opinion. I enjoy that album as well, but best of the decade? not hardly.

granted I know my list would get me shit too, in fact it did when we voted on this stuff in the beginning of 2010. So I admire you for putting your opinions out there and taking the heat of disagreement.

Stabbing the drama just hits me every time i listen to it. I love every song. I like the direction change they went with this, with the more subtle keyboards. I wasn't a fan of Natural Born Chaos.
