Not enough blastbeats.
There should be more blast beats.
OMG it leaked!?
BtBaM's third best album.
If only there were more blast beats.
Yeah. The first two best albums are The Silent Circus and Alaska, and the third best album is Colors.
I hope no one in this thread is serious, because I'm sure not.
Needs blast beats over clean vocals.
But seriously Colors is absolutely flawless.
With Alaska being the first best.
I'm gonna give this album another go. Their vocalist killed me last time, back when it leaked. But then again, this was before I developed my massive boner for Meshuggah/Opeth
needs more emo parts
but seriously self-titled is the best.
It's as if there's anything that matches All Bodies or Selkies on any of their other albums.
No, TSC was their first best. Alaska came after.
self titled and alaska are the best imo
I like this album.
I ordered this album from amazon recently
*ranks albums because that's what people do in threads for no reason*
Colors is ok, way too DTish for me.
If you disagree that Alaska came after TSC...
me too! especially how all the songs flow into one another. i like when bands do that. on that note, does White Walls have a lot of sections from earlier songs on the album? i kinda get that idea but i could be totally wrong.
never got into their earlier stuff, maybe they're growers like Colors but i don't really care enough to give them the time. Glass Casket are basically what i wish early btbam sounded like
fucking incredibly overrated album
^ more like "fucking incredible album"
It is kinda overrated. It's good, but Alaska's still better.
Strange that most people here no longer consider it their best album, considering the praise it was getting upon its release.
I think Colors is overrated too... a lot of people saying "progressive masterpiece" or "flawless album" and stuff like that, I disagree. but I still think it's BTBAM's best one. stuff like Mordecai and Selkies are a lot better than some of the parts on Colors, but since they're only single tracks on their respective album while Colors is the album itself, I ranked Colors higher. I think it's their best overall release.
I think Colors is a fucking stellar album, however, the s/t is probably like my 1, 2, 3....4th? Maybe? 4th favourite album ever.
I've noticed two riffs from Informal Gluttony in there.
The most of Viridian again.
There's a whole thread on their official forum about how White Walls is practically a summary of the whole album.
fuck yeah i was right! i remember listening to the album in bed and being like "hey, White Walls sounds made up for stuff from the rest of the album", but then i never heard anybody else talking about it so i assumed i was wrong
silent circus > all
hey I've got an idea
let's discuss this album in 20 different threads
Oh yeah of course it has the same Virdian progression during the clean section before the breakdown too.
Lost Perfection, Mordecai, Ad a Dglgmut, Destructo Spin, and Aesthetic are my favorites.
Yes, that is a big part of it. Makes it feel like one gigantic song.
LOL, the motifs were fucking blatant.
S/t needs more love. There's some really good stuff on there.
best album they have ever put out
