05:24 - Fearmeister Yea, so you like 2 of the songs less. There are plenty of people who gave out 9s to albums where they liked 2 of the songs a bit less than the rest
05:20 - deadone It'd be a 9 if songs like Sacrifice or Heavens On Fire were better. It'd be a 10 if these were excellent. However despite it's score of 8, large chunks are still soul catching.
05:17 - Fearmeister Yea, and so do I. I can fucking sing, air guitar and air drum Black Metal (the album) from start to finish. If that's not evidence of a 10, idk what is
05:15 - deadone Actually you are applying my scoring to your thinking.. Also something can be soulcatching and imperfect - I like Venom FFS.
05:09 - Fearmeister Exactly, you can't have 'unused' numbers. To leave 10s empty is simply stating that there is a level beyond soul catching
05:07 - MetalDoomMaster I think it's easier to think of 10s as "best of the best" instead of perfect. By your rating standards, there shouldn't even be a 10 on the scale. There must be some of those 9s you like more than other 9s.
05:04 - Fearmeister see? You're simply proving my point more and more. In fact, that is pretty much the same thing I do, just bump the numbers up by 1
01. Devilution 02. The Face Of Oblivion 03. Brother In The Wind 04. Cometh Down Hessian 05. Blessed Black Wings 06. Anointing Of Seer 07. To Cross The Bridge 08. Silver Back 09. Sons Of Thunder 10. Rapid Fire [Judas Priest cover][Japanese bonus]
Despite me only recently learning that High On Fire is actually Sleep guitarist Matt pike's current project, what interests me more is that this is produced by Steve Albini. Now THAT is something that makes me wanna blast this one.
