Rating: 9 Shame on me for it taking this long for me to listen to this album. The "ritual use of fire" interludes are a perfect interlude / break from the onslaught that precedes and follows each of them.

Rating: 9 Why the hell I missed this album so long? what an intense and immense experience. halfway through my fist spin and I give it a 9.

  So, last weekend I traveled long miles by car and the guy had songs from this album playing during the trip. I was very impressed, which means now I have to check out Cobalt once and for all.

That stuff was intense, chaotic, perfect for a trip too

Rating: 10 This might be my favourite album of all times, I can't get bored by the ending of Witherer or Ulcerism it is just so intense. How the hell can this have only ~40 votes ?

  May have to think about 10ing this. It never gets old and has never been surpassed.

Rating: 9 I' ll probably end up giving a 10 on one of cobalt records. Not sure which one yet.

  I think Gin is the only one of these two classics to rightfully deserve that 10. I love this album, but I don't see it going beyond a strong 9.
!J.O.O.E.! - 21.01.2015 at 00:48  
  Gin's great but I don't see why they watered down what made this album so great with Tool nonsense.
Marcel Hubregtse - 21.01.2015 at 01:06  
  Gin is a tiny step up from Eater Of Birds and neither one of them deserves a 10
!J.O.O.E.! - 21.01.2015 at 01:09  
  Gave this a 10 well deserved.

Nope, only six albums deserve a 10 in this world according to me.
Not some 50 odd albums.

Maybe if you're rating objectively. 50 ultra personal, memory-attached albums over 16 or 17 years and thousands of albums is an easy proposition

Eater Of Birds is still an immensely good album. I think I would rate it 8.6 whereas Gin I would rate 9.2 so me for me that is an immense stept up.

  Quite surprised no one reviewed this. 2007 release with excellent rating overall, this sure as hell something band has to offer us.

I heard Invincible Sun in 2011 and was quite surprised with kind of music they come up with. Never sat and listen to whole at one go - it was in bits and pieces. But, nonetheless excellent album.

Rating: 10 Btw, Phil has left the band recently again. Erik says that songs for the "Slow Forever" are ready and he will record everything by himself in the period of May-June 2015 (most likelt - vocals too).

Eater of Birds is easily the best Cobalt record to date and one of the most underrated albums ever.

Rating: 10 True, most underrated album ever, it is just perfect
