When I turn back and see this list, I think it's perfect, otherwise.. I don't see Meshuggah's - Destroy Erase Improve - one very good piece of metal art, but in the end - this is my opinion Cheers friend

FATAL OPERA were founded by ex-Megadeth drummer Gar Samuelson and his brother Stew Samuelson. The musicians combine technical thrash/heavy metal and progressive rock elements.

In Flames is a good band, I like them ( especially 'The Jester Race' ).

But each album in this list outperforms their recordings.

Ah, what the hell - it's your list. You can put whatever you want in there. You've found 100 albums from the 1990s better than The Jester Race - hey, good for you!

Thanks for the opinion, man.
This is an excellent album, but the presence in the top 50 is not bad at all. However, this is a whole decade in the history of Metal ...
