Excellent post! Its good to see some reasoning behind your choices rather than just a list.

I must've voted like forever ago and never typed out my choices durrr. So then:



BATS

Gateways

Formulas (this would def be number two but Steve's vocals are too dry)



in said other



I know these are correct because I, like many others, had to do a cleansing of the ear canals yesterday. Listened to A-H front to back again. So magical :idea:

Although it would be good for a laugh, for about 20 seconds until we realize that the persons (other than wtsl) voted for I just for shits.

Have to include I in here just for completeness!



I'd reckon the number of votes it will garner will be small, in any event.

I selected A, B and F. I'll post my reasoning later.

I just had a little thought (opinion of course): Heretic and IDI are reversals of each other. Heretic has bad production but good music. IDI has good production but bad music. :santa:



[edit] also I feel like the last minute of radikult sounds apologetic. Almost like music to accompany a game over screen on a video game, but it slowly pick itself back up to fight on, then Mae culpa starts.

Don't like D too much and B is worse. IDI is shitty too bit I dunno, I guess it's a sort of Heretic/gateways sound that pops up here and there which I dig. Still a crap album though. Like I say the rest of the discography is miles ahead of these three for me.

it's one of the things that has fascinated me for a long time is the abundant praise Blessed has but me just not getting at all. I'm not completeyl alone though. I've seen some negative reviews for it too giving the same critisism I give it.



I was introduced with Alters and then Gateways. Does that give any indication as to my disliking ?
