Thumbs up: +10
In order roughly, by the number of spins. A lot = A LOT. So when I give ten more spins to the rest of the albums I've listened to, and forgot to rate most probably, this will grow larger. Or not. I'm making this for me anyway.

Created by: Milena | 16.01.2012



1. Subsignal - Touchstones
Progressive rock/metal. First it seemed like it was just another fine release, but after a couple of spins I fell so much in love with it, it now rivals my all-time favorite albums. The joys of love. Guess that's because of the very essence of Sieges Even/Subsignal in its fibres.
2. Symphony X - Iconoclast
Progressive metal. Ya, I thought this would be boring and the new Dream Theater would be decent, so you can go ahead and shoot me. SyX just slays on this one, no questions asked.
3. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
Amorphis metal. They've done it again.
4. Pain Of Salvation - Road Salt Two
Genuine bluesy/retro prog. Genuine pain. Much more honest than the first Road Salt, although I enjoy that one too.
5. Iced Earth - Dystopia
Heavy/power metal. Nothing like a nice singer transition. Not that I had much against Barlow, but when Stu Block joined the band, my interest piqued. I've enjoyed Dystopia greatly.
6. Pagan's Mind - Heavenly Ecstasy
Power metal with substance. Kids, this is how it's done.
7. Wolverine - Communication Lost
Emotional progressive metal. Maybe a tad less enjoyable than their previous album but kick-ass nonetheless.
8. Van Canto - Break The Silence
Catchy power metal. Ya, I might be alone in this. I don't care.
9. Insomnium - One For Sorrow
Melodic death metal. Insomnium's "same old" is pretty much awesome in my book.
10. X-Panda - Flight Of Fancy
Almost instrumental prog/fusion. This is FUN.
11. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
Melodic death metal. Pretty epic, and I usually hate "epic".
12. The Man-Eating Tree - Harvest
Gothic metal. Emotive vocals and crafty musicians behind them make this a very worthy release.
13. Poisonblack - Drive
Some try-hard Suomi metal saved by an awful lot of bluesy tendencies, which I liked a lot more than their last year's failure.
14. Shadowside - Inner Monster Out
Badass power metal. And one of the best vocalists to emerge last year.
15. Ravenscry - One Way Out
Top tier gothic metal, this lacks just a bit more substance and experience.
16. Sacred Ally - Reality Hammer
Proggy thrash. Mean riffs over mean riffs over mean riffs.
17. Before The Dawn - Deathstar Rising
Melodic death metal. Meant as a soundtrack for winter. Not as strong as a usual Finnish winter but it can pass in my Serbian climate. Tuomas, you get a nice grade from me at last.
18. Voyager - The Meaning Of I
Quirky proggy goodness. If you're into Voyager, you know what to expect; if not, boy, you're in for a surprise.
19. Graveyard - Hisingen Blues
This is essentially a Led Zep album. Now, I don't wet my panties over Led Zep. But I do love this.
20. Autumn - Cold Comfort
Bleak, bleak and cold; I'll spin it again this year in November.
21. Fluxious - Why So Serious?
This is that jazz with heavy distortion everyone and their mother fell in love with this year.
22. Ava Inferi - Onyx
This lovely doomy/gothic metal act from Portugal is bound to leave you speechless.
23. Derek Sherinian - Oceana
Instrumental prog. I've spent a lot of hot steamy nights under the blanket with this, and I look forward to exploring Derek's previous albums more.
24. Lantlôs - Agape
I've listened to quite a bit of some darker stuff I haven't heard before this year, but this post/shoegaze black act has gotten the most listens. Quite a lovely little album that could last longer.

You can masturbate all you want, but you'll never lay yourself. You mean "lie", don't you?

Lay is when something is being done[/put down] by something else, e.g. an egg by a hen, a foundation by a group [of "builders"?], or a hand or other object by a person. Past tense, always "laid".

Lie is when you [go to] lie flat, lie down, or "lie low", or something remains where it has already been located. The past tense is "lay", or "lain", but never "laid".

You could remember it like LIE i for itself, LAY a for another [object or thing]. Or a for active [force [upon] something else].

Just like stationery-stationary; e for envelope, a for action (or lack of it). Remember there was a time when EA games were nonsensical bullshit - they may have had some stationary stationery, but the reverse just wouldn't make sense
