    I've only just got into GY!BE , I'm gonna use 'East Hastings' in this short film I'm currently making. At the moment f#a#? is my favourite, but as I said I'm not that up on them yet. I have listened to that album constantly over the last couple of weeks now though.

    As for Tool my favourite album of theirs is Lateralus, but a lot of fans would disagree with me there. I'm not a massive metal head but I love their stuff, it's far more intelligent than a lot of your average metal fare.

    My fav Victory Rose album switches between ( ) and Ágætis byrjun...I think they're equally beautiful, with ( ) perhaps harder to get into.

    get lift yr skinny fists like antennas to heaven, itll change your life!!!
    im gonna get some tool, maybe start with the one u mentioned, and maybe the most recent one coz ive heard its good.
    for 11 and 12 id probably say pinkerton and without you im nothing (realizing thats 1998 isnt it?)

    i think vidrar is my fave victory rose song infact, theres so many i dont think i could pick one.

    Great number 1!!!
    Why thank you.

    I could quite easily have put down Pavement as my top 5, they were that good. But that would have been boring :p:

    im loving the popularity there getting with hoppipola being used (to great effect) in planet earth.
    I know I'm interrupting your conversation with sir morgangills here. :p: But yeah, the music is perfect for that programme. And people are constantly asking what the song is and then start looking into Sigur Ros' stuff and find that they love it and ahhh, they must have triple the amount of fans they had just a couple of years ago. At least. They really deserved this.

    This is a near-impossible task, especially if you limit yourself to one album per artist like I've done...I've also put the year and my favourite track from the album underneath.

    1. Music for the Jilted Generation - The Prodigy (1994)
    'Their Law'

    2. Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine (1992)
    'Killing In The Name'

    3. Ágætis byrjun - Sigur Rós (1999)
    'Olsen Olsen'

    4. The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails (1994)
    'March of the Pigs'

    5. ...Endtroducing - DJ Shadow (1996)
    'Building Steam With A Grain of Salt'

    6. The Holy Bible - Manic Street Preachers (1994)
    'Revol'

    7. Fear of a Black Planet - Public Enemy (1990)
    'Fight The Power'

    8. Young Team - Mogwai (1997)
    'Katrien'

    9. Mezzanine - Massive Attack (1998)
    'Angel'

    10. Ænima - Tool (1996)
    'Stinkfist'

    It's very hard, and I'm surprised at how rock-heavy my list is, seeing as how much I enjoyed the dance music of the late 90s. 1994 was a great year in music obviously...

    Anyway, what about yours? What do you think of mine?
    Spot on! Yeah those two would definately be on the top of my list!

    Above the debut? Blasphemy...and 'Calm Like A Bomb' above 'Guerrilla Radio' and 'Testify'? Madness...
    Definitely above the debut, I feel TBOLA is a much more solid effort - no fillers and it feels like they really know what they're doing. Hard to explain (note to self : never become a music journalist...). The debut contains quite a few classics but also some weak points and some songs tend to be too long. But it's tough picking one RATM album, Evil Empire is awsome too (People of the Sun one of my fav. Rage tunes for sure).

    EDIT: I don't know, Calm Like a Bomb might not be my fav. tune on it actually... Very hard to pick one for that album!

    I don't think I'd be able to pick out a weak track on their debut album. Not one.

    I think Fistful of Steel drags on a bit, but you still can't call it a weak track.

    [*]-Manic Street Preachers - Holy Bible
    Yes - Richey Edwards killed himself, didn't he, you can't make an album like that and not be suicidal.
    Don't be chatting such rhymes...Richey is blatantly still alive.
