How on earth it can be criticised so much by some PA reviewers I don't know, believe me its worth owning.








...and yeah I know its not metal but in parts its very close.

I've heard quite a few 2011 albums (at least 20), but I'm not sure if any of them would crack my top 5 if they came out last year.  There's still 6 months, and quite a few releases I'm anticipating, so that is certain to change for me.  Plus some of the albums I have heard could grow on me by the end of the year.

2011 has been great for me so far. 66 albums heard so far (61 of those reviewed so far), and I've already got three times as many 5* albums from 2011 than I had for 2010.

Oh yes, my infamous 1.63 average metalcore ratings. Embarrassed What can I say, I think I've only heard two metalcore albums that have stood the test of time with me.

It is probably worth noting in regard to metalcore and myself that I have actually only rated 8 releases, so maybe I just didn't encounter the best stuff. This said, looking through the newly added releases on the sub page I don't see anything that even slightly catches my attention, although I do actually have The Defiled's Grave Times because Metal Hammer gave it away for free, but I only listened to one track from it and then shelved it.Embarrassed

I'm shocked that my average rating for metalcore is so high. But then I remember that most of those are BTBAM fanboy reviews and I don't write much anyway. Embarrassed
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.

My year started out good, but I haven't gotten many albums in the past couple of months, besides Septicflesh's "The Great Mass", that have gotten close to even a 4 star rating. But, there's still the new DT and Opeth albums to look forward too.

Current top 10, which some commentary:

Factory of Dreams - Melotronical <- absolute prog metal gem!
MaYaN - Quarterpast <- keep having to revise my review for this one, it just gets better and better
Saille - Irreversible Decay <- certainly worth 5* to me from a neutral PoV, but it drops a few places on this list because this is my personal top albums, and I guess I'm just not into black metal enough to want to place it higher than Cruachan, Turisas and Hell.

Full list here, but sorted by review scores rather than personal preference, not that it's much different: http://www.last.fm/user/adg211288/journal/2011/01/17/45wwtf_2011_-_album_ratings_and_check_out_list
