I've always thought that I had heard "Dying In Your Arms" from somewhere else before. Like the band blatantly ripped off the song from another band or something.

Definitely agree that Alive or Just Breathing is one of the most important metal albums on the 2000s. It would be in my top 10. It's my favorite vocal album of all time. Jesse Leach is a monster on that album, great screams and amazing clean vocals. It is definitely their best album by far, and they have gone downhill ever since then.

In hindsight, it's pretty crazy to me that they were constantly played on pop radio station when "Bring Me to Life" was their big song given their fairly dark and heavy style. Fallen's got some great, catchy songs that I still love to this day and I owe it everything because without it, I might not have became a metal fan.
I was ten when Fallen came out, this was my introduction to rock and metal(along with Disturbed, Metallica and System Of A Down). Still love Fallen to this day and that wont change. This album is also the reason I like female fronted rock and metal so much.

Standout Track
Just Barely Breathing
I like all Killswitch Engage albums but I think Howard Jones is better than Jesse Leach.

I will agree with you vocally I prefer howard but song writing wise, Jesse wrote with more variety, Howard's lyrics are all pretty much on relationships, which is ok but gets boring to always have the same subject.



and I prefer Jesse's vocals on times of grace much more than I ever did on alive or just breathing.

By that same logic, St. Anger is Metallica's heaviest album. Modern production can make anything sound heavy, bro.

Did I say it was because of the album's production? No, it's because the music is actually heavy as fuck. And that St. Anger argument is flawed because while it is a modern album, it has a shit production.

I have to agree with logan on this one. The first three albums are much heavier then GHUA. I am the only one who doesn't think payback is that great of a song? The lyrics come off as a little silly to me.

I really like Howard, but Jesse is so much better in my opinion. His voice is so epic, and a voice like his doesn't come around that often.
