Imagine this... every member of MMA is given ONE album that they can rate with 6 out of 5 stars. No, that technically doesn't make any sense, and I'm not suggesting that it gets implemented, but if it were true...

What single album in your collection would you consider to be "better than perfect"? Wink

For me I cannot choose. I battle constantly between Tool's Lateralus and Between the Buried and Me's Colors.

On one hand, Lateralus is so intertwined with deep lyrical themes and concept. It's pretty much amazing all the thought the boys from Tool put into this record.

But the same thing can be said about Colors. The creativity inspires me every time I listen to it, and there's brilliant technical musicianship all over it, whereas Lateralus is filled with atmosphere.

For this site's sake, I don't consider Lateralus a metal album. So Colors it is.
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

It would probably be Into the Everflow by Psychotic Waltz. I have such a long history with this album and Ive listened to Into the Everflow literally hundreds of times and Im still not tired of the album.

Great thread Jeff.
 
Without hesitation I chose this album -
 
Yes it's live, yes it was tweaked afterwards, yes it wasn't the full gig and yes probably a few other things but...
 
It sums up everything that was metal, is metal and will always be metal; I introduce to you the godfathers of metal Big smile

A toss up between Into The Everflow and Blackwater Park or Ghost Reveries or Rust In Peace

Hmm... that's more like three tosses-up Confused

I am not really sure what my all-time favorite metal album is.  There are some good ones listed above.  Ayreon's The Human Equation is definitely a favorite.  Metallica's Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All are all great candidates.  Dream Theater's Images and Words and Metropolis are both great albums.

In fact, could I divide the extra point between ten and make every Dream Theater album 5.1?
