Few bands have left me speechless with their music, even fewer I would ever call perfect, and fewer still where tragedy has struck a promising band such that the music is too much to get through without thinking about the backstory of the band's short lifespan. Trees Of Eternity was certainly something special.

What a brilliant album.
its sad to read about Aleah, she dead before releasing the album, this really broke my heart.

You may want to check Hallatar; they're pursuing her legacy (and their first album is out this Friday).

Never heard of the band until I saw the sad news about the singer a while back. I finally I listened to this for the first time a couple days ago. Pleasantly surprised.

Nice. Different. Soul-touching.

Eye Of Night my favorite track.

Very good stuff.
Some Excellent songs (Eye of night, a million tears), some very good ones (broken mirror, black ocean), and couple of slightly weaker ones, some of them a bit lame at times (title track, the passage).

No I am not trying to get the ratings changed, but this album hit me in a way no metal album has ever had before, on top of being very well constructed musically, for me this album is a 10++++

Female fronted doom is not necessarily my favorite kind of doom, but for some strange and inexplicable reason, I really love Suldusk's stripped down adaption of "Sinking Ships":

That band is good, slower more sifter touch of doom inspired. I like it.

That song is best what they did. I like it, friends o mine did instrumental jam, did not find female singer, i did fix one, sorts she was in a band, but they broke up. I wish all booze, garage Umeå sessions
Would be recordet, not lost in eternity. One or 2 albums would come out.

This is the most recent entry on the Top 200 Albums list. Crazy that in almost 6 years there haven't been any releases good enough to make the list.

Each year between 1969-2016 has had at least 1 album make the top 200 (apart from 2014). Has the quality in music declined in recent years?

I would not judge the quality of all metal releases solely by the number of standout albums. One should rather compare median ratings of all albums by year of release, and it would indeed be interesting to see the result.
As for the Top 200, well, if you have a fixed number of spots (200) and every year tons of new releases add to the bulk that is already out there, I claim it naturally gets increasingly crowded in the top 200 ranks over time.
