    By the end of the year I plan to have them ranked in order with my opinions on each. Any albums not on the Top will be sorted into really good, good, bad, etc.

    It will have graphics and graphs showing the shift of albums over time.

    I'm being very meticulous about my albums this year since last year I was too lazy to order them last year :lol:

    EDIT:

    1.) Skeletons - Wednesday 13
    2.) Blooddrunk - Children of Bodom
    3.) A Sense of Purpose - In Flames

    Just bought Wednesday 13's newest CD and I love it. *sigh* Sorry Alexi. :lol:

    Fireflight are a female fronted alt rock band. Haven't listened to em much but i didn't really like em.

    Black Tide are a metal band which are crap and manage to get lots of hype because they're young. Not saying they're not good at there instruments but there songs aren't good at all.

    Fireflight are kind of like Flyleaf/Skillet. Not exactly the same but they fit under the same category, in my opinion. Very good band, although Unbreakable isn't as good as their first album, The Healing of Harms.

    Songs from Fireflight you might want to look into:
    Serenity
    Waiting
    You Decide
    Liar
    Unbreakable

    Black Tide aren't bad. For me, I have to be in a certain mood for me to listen to their entire album. Their not totally shit like Jordan thinks (sorry, you are entitled to your opinion, so it's cool). If I thought that then their album, Light From Above, wouldn't be on my iPod. Their kind of thrash metal and sound like a little bit of an early Metallica with a new-aged kick, just not as good. They did cover Metallica's Hit the Lights on their album, which isn't bad at all.

    ah okey, now I remember this band, I was I was attracted by (not by their style or music...not my kind) the song You Decide specially the guy ho was featured in : he was the vocalist of a great band "Full Devil Jacket" ho broke after an only 1 Awesome album.. apparently he suffered a severe heroin overdose - he nearly died. Many people say this was when he started to turn his life around through a combination of rehab now and now he is on a christian band "Day of Fire" =/
