• The Top 75 Albums of 2007

    23 Dic 2007, 6:08 de SmasherDevourer

    Gather round, kids! It's time once again for my list of the best albums of the year. And it's going to be one hell of a long list. Last year I had trouble scrounging up enough albums to make a top 25. This year I had trouble restricting myself to 75, if not quite enough to make a top 100. I had a lot of time on my hands in the first half of the year and went on a rampage of musical discovery. My list is still dominated by metal -- particularly prog metal, this year -- but there are more appearances from other genres than in years past. Because there are so many albums on this list, it was a little difficult to rank them, and the further from the top I got, the harder it became. As such, the rankings down there are only approximate.

    Along with the huge number of great releases this year, there have been quite a few disappointments as well. Arcturus is gone, and the awe-inspiring lineup of Green Carnation has parted ways; though Tchort intends to continue using the name, it won't be like it was. …

    OK - this is definitely a sign of extreme boredom... anyway I snapped this off the forumes:

    Lyrics Challenge!
    1. Go to Your Library
    2. Select the Shuffle Option
    3. List the first line of the first 25 songs that you hear (But, don't use an artist more than once.)
    4. Have people guess the artists and songs!

    Some disclaimers: I did this on my working laptop, so it doesn't represent my whole collection. Also, I skipped songs that were instrumental or had no real lyrics (e.g. just some sampled speech) because I was bound to get a lot of such. There was also quite a lot of repetition in the artists. Anyway, here goes:

    1. Vibrant and real I lie / Mantled by the open sky / The wind and waves my lullaby / I am the land.
    The Cry Of The Land

    2. On the edge of paradise / Tears of woe fall, cold as ice / Hear my cry / Renounce, have you, thy name / Eternal is my pain
    The Divine Wings Of Tragedy

    3. I've been leaving on my things / So in the morning when the morning bird sings / There's still dinner on my dinner jacket . …
