Thumbs up: +7
My ranking of all My Dying Bride's studio albums. Turn Loose The Swans and Songs Of Darkness, Words Of Light are the two best albums for me. I basically like every album a lot, except for For Lies I Sire. It's not bad obviously, but it was a disappointment for me, hence why it's below 34.788%... Complete. The last album being a very experimental/strange album, but it still contains a few great songs. I included ratings as well as the best (in my opinion of course) songs of each album.

Here are links to the full albums (Grooveshark):
1. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
2. My Dying Bride - Songs Of Darkness, Words Of Light
3. My Dying Bride - The Angel And The Dark River
4. My Dying Bride - The Dreadful Hours
5. My Dying Bride - The Light At The End Of The World
6. My Dying Bride - Like Gods Of The Sun
7. My Dying Bride - As The Flower Withers
8. My Dying Bride - A Map Of All Our Failures
9. My Dying Bride - 34.788%... Complete

Nice list. I, too, think that Turn Loose The Swans is their best album. But I think that The Dreadful Hours is better than The Angel And The Dark River.

Thanks man. Yeah, I had Songs of Darkness, Words of Light at #1 the whole time, but decided that Turn Loose The Swans is pretty much the ultimate MDB album. But to be honest, I think they're about equal in quality. Same goes for #3-#5. As you can see I've rated those all a 9.5, so the difference for me it's pretty small between those albums. However, this top 5 are definitely the 5 best albums from MDB and that will never change, because seeing as their last 3 full-length albums don't even come close to the top 5, I don't have any hope they'll ever produce another masterpiece like those 5 albums. I hope I'm wrong though.

I think the last time I came here you had SoD,WoL in 1st place. I definitely agree with the top 4, but I couldn't choose which is the best one as they're all great. You also picked the best songs from the albums too.

Thanks! And you're right, I switched them, although I think they're both about equal in quality. I'd guess your #5 would be Like Gods of the Sun? I recently added my favourite songs and ratings, because I felt the list was boring, haha.

Great list. Almost the same for me. Song of Darkness, Words of Light is static at #1 for me with Turn Loose the Swans/Angel & The Dark River switching spots once in a while. 34.788%... Complete has a place in my heart, but all the other albums are better imo. Good job.

Thanks man! And well, Songs of Darkness, Words of Light and Turn Loose The Swans are pretty much equal for me and I actually had SoD, WoL at #1 before I decided to put TLtS at #1 after all. I understand why people think 34.788%... Complete is their worst, although it at least something different and I definitely enjoy most of the tracks. For Lies I Sire is basically Like Gods of the Sun, but way worse in every aspect, and I don't even like all the songs (for example, A Chapter in Loathing, which is a total rip-off of The Blood, The Wine, The Roses). I know they're not the exact same style, but I feel those two are still pretty similar nonetheless.

I should update the ratings here, because I don't entirely agree with them anymore. But that's hard because I rarely listen to My Dying Bride lately, so I just left it as it is. Might update it soon though, but the order of the albums probably won't change so it's not a big deal. I Always try to be a little careful with very high ratings but that's hard in case of a band like MDB because most of their albums are awesome.
