    The idea is simple. Rank a particular artist or band’s discography (studio albums only) from best to worst, or worst to best. I’ll start.

    ONLY ONE DISCOGRAPHY PER POST.

    Metallica:

    1. Ride the Lightning
    2. Master of Puppets
    3. Kill ‘Em All
    4. ...And Justice for All
    5. The Black Album
    6. Hardwired... to Self Destruct
    7. Load
    8. St. Anger
    9. Reload
    10. Death Magnetic

    2 Living Things
    3 One More Light
    4 Minutes To Midnight
    5 Hybrid Theory
    6 The Hunting Party
    7 A Thousand Suns

    Close call between 4 and 5, but obviously none is bad.

    Delain
    1 Moonbathers
    2 April Rain
    3 The Human Contradiction
    4 We Are The Others
    5 Interlude
    6 Lucidity

    Lucidity and Interlude are awful. I can't listen to them in one go. Moobathers wins because the band has taken their sound to a new level (now they are becoming a bit more metal), but it's really neck and neck with April Rain.
    The Human Contradivtion has one song that bugs me and it's less consistent despite having some of the best songs. As to We Are The Others, it's probably the one with the simplest lyrics and it concept could have been more developed.

    August Burns Red

    1 Phantom Anthem
    2 Constellations
    3 Messengers
    4 Found In Far Away Places
    5 Rescue & Restore
    6 Thrill Seeker
    7 Leveler

    That was really hard, since even their lowest ranked album Leveler is better than a large number of Metalcore releases. ABR's standard is just so high.

    Leave A Whisper is the first ever album that I don't enjoy any song at all. The genre of it isn't my cup of tea.
