A return to the earth below is a fantastic song but the rest of the album didn't grab me. Maybe the brilliance of that song over shadowed the rest of the songs.

I've only listened to two albums on the list, and I don't rate the Alestorm one at all, sooo:

1. Dark Tranquillity ~ Moment

That's all.

Will update if I get around to listening to the others.

Well if you're into melodeath then Countless Skies - Glow is definitely worth a listen.

Not in my AOTY list, but it's a damn good album and I would recommend listening to anyone who hasn't yet

Still cant believe noone else voted for Oceans of Slumber in the first round. May well have been my number 1 :(


I would have voted for that but I completely missed the first round. OoS are an amazing band and even cooler since the drummer was in Insect Warfare and is in Malignant Altar. Super nice people that I've been able to hang out with a few times! It would probably have been my number 2 or 3. :D

A return to the earth below is a fantastic song but the rest of the album didn't grab me. Maybe the brilliance of that song over shadowed the rest of the songs.

I'm in the same boat. I loved their other two albums, but nothing I've heard of this album has done anything for me. Maybe I should give it another go.

I found this one and Banished Heart are real growers. Was disappointed by both when I first heard them and love them both now

Hmm I'll give it another go then, might have passed over it a bit too quickly.
