Quad, I know it seems wrong, but look at who the bloody hell we're dealing with here.

Fucking holy lol
Ah I do love a good dose of irony. :lol

I don't know what's funnier: the irony, or the fact that he employed British slang to insult you.
Gadough isn't Hitler. He's much, much worse.

I recently listened to TBU on Grooveshark. Beautiful, but need more time to digest.

I've always wanted to get into BT. Looks like TBU is the place to start.

Nearly there...


4. Porcupine Tree Ė Deadwing [2005]

There is no doubt in my mind that this album is PT at their absolute peak. The album is dense yet accessible, and has a fantastic dark and heavy vibe throughout that just grabs me and forces me to keep listening. As soon as I hear the opening notes of the opener, I know Iím going to hear the whole album. Itís such a consistently amazing record Ė even the songs that Iím less keen on are great, which makes it really bloody hard to vote in the PT survivor whenever this album comes up. :P When I first started listening to PT, like many fans I was all about In Absentia, and while of course I love that album dearly, it simply doesnít have the underlying substance that Deadwing has. Whereas 5 years or so on, Deadwing still gets better and better with every listen. Which is truly remarkable when you think about it.

3. Jeff Buckley Ė Grace [1994]

I canít believe I only discovered this album last year. Like, seriously, I am horrified by this fact. I had heard about Buckley for years and knew that he was a big influence on Daniel Gildenlow who is one of my favourite musicians and singers, but the only song I had heard was his cover of Hallelujah, which while lovely never really jumped out at me at being anything special. So for years I just never got round to checking his music out properly. Finally I decided to have a listen to this album, and was completely and utterly blown away. The music is incredible Ė powerful and unusual, but never too much so as to put off more casual listeners. And the voiceÖ OH MY GOD THE VOICE! It is soulful and epic and emotional and beautiful and everything else. This album is simply incredible, but more than that, it was also ahead of its time and unlike anything else that had been made. It is absolutely tragic that he was taken from us at such a young age, but at least we are lucky enough to have this masterpiece.

Although I prefer Blood Inside, it's nice to see Ulver on the list! :tup Deadwing is also my favorite PT album too.

And I'll check out that BT album...

Grace is amazing!  Beautiful album.


Deadwing, though not one of my favorite Porcupine Tree albums, is awesome as well.

Great albums, though I wouldn't rank neither THAT high myself.
But still excited about what's to come.

Good to see the best Porcupine Tree album made a spot in your top 10, as it most likely would in mine as well.

Well, his voice is pretty much the best voice ever.  So just imagine that, if you can.  The music is very singer-songwriter oriented, of course, but not in too typical or uncreative of a way, actually.

Eternal Life, Last Goodbye, Lover You Should Have Come Over

and you HAVE TO listen to his version of Hallelujah. It's amazing.

'Deadwing' and 'Grace' are top 5 albums for me as well. I agree on 'Deadwing' being PT's best record. Can't get enough of it, never will.
Not 'Down To F***', but 'Dream Theater Forums' .

Not feeling the songs besides Eternal Life. Probably a grower artist.

I did also listen to Hallelujah as well and that was part of my opinion...

Listening to Last Goodbye now

I never cared much for Jeff Buckley. Deadwing definitely deserves its place though :metal

And my last exam is in an hour, I might actually finish mine after that.



Maybe.







Okay probably not but I'm going to say that I will.
