Thanks Loaf! :cheers:

Surprises me to see Opeth with a mediocre release by their standards at #1. Are they really that good that they can produce a middling effort (for them) and still be tops?



I'm not that surprised but if I had of made a list I doubt if Watershed would have even been in my top 50. Worst Opeth album yet IMO.

Hey I listened to the album dozens of times & not only didn't it do much for me but most of the time it just became background noise at best. Boring album.

..I absolutly love Opeth's older work!...but Ghost Reveries is just awful..I like Watershed a tit better then GR.."The Lotus Eater" is a nice song..other then that,the album as a whole doesn't do much for me..and I don't think they deserve that first spot on the album 2008 list at all...

I think the opening song on the album, Coil, is the best tune on there which leaves a heck of a lot of filler.

Overall it was a pretty decent year for Metal. There are plenty of great albums out there that I still need to check out. Which means my 2009 albums will suffer.

1. Cradle of Filth - God Speed On the Devils Thunder (45)
2. Metallica - Death Magnetic (5)
3. Testament - The Formation of Damnation (7)
4. Opeth - Watershed (1)
5. Iced Earth - The Crucible (55)
6. Judas Priest - Nostradamus (25)
7. Kataklysm - Prevail (56)
8. Six Feet Under - Death Rituals (--)
9. Unleashed - Hammer Battalion (--)
10. Eluveitie - Slania (42)

Overall not bad. I had 4 albums in the Top 25, 3 being in the Top 10, and had 4 from the middle of the field (40-60). No shock on SFU not making the list, but was surprised a little bit by Unleashed not making the list.

So it's on par with their earlier works, then?

Man, everything's relative, eh? It was a 'good' buying year for me and I *might* have reached 20 albums. :roll:

I'm much more inclined to agree with this year's list as compaired to last year. Last year it seemed as if I was missing the boat.

Hell yeah!!!
