Why this is so down low? This Album is definitely one of the best I've ever heard. There's no question about it. Don't Understand it Through.
Can somebody explain to me why the greatest Metal band ever's best album ever is not number one on this list?
This album - a masterpiece! Combining operatic vocals, symphonic power metal, it became a cult classic and always will.
It's a real beautiful music!
Great album from the amazing Finnish band. A mixture of opera and metal. This is one of the best of their creations!
Best songs: Stargazers - the most difficult vocal part, Gethsemane, Swann heart, We walking in the air.
What a masterpiece. Tarja is truly one of the best female vocalists in this genre. I don't care what other people say, Tarja's voice DOES belong in this genre. Their Once and Imaginaerum albums are also amazing, but this was the first I saw.
Where to start? Looking Down the Cross is so epic! Rattle Head is so rushing. Last Rites/Loved to Deth is spontanious with that piano intro and then coming in with these shredding guitars. I love the whole album.
The first version of this album is completely underrated... The most underrated piece of music ever created. When I got this album (in its first press), I listened to it beginning to end so much I don't recall how much. Laugh out loud. But let's just say I listened to it at least 3-4 times in a row when I first got it. 'These Boots' was a very good cover and it's too bad the remixed/remastered version is all full of beeps. I highly recommend the 1st press of KIMB... ABIG to anyone who wants to listen to music in its historical context and dislikes censorship.
Best album from the best metal band with female vocals. Everybody listen to After Forever, led by a remarkable Floor Jansen!
Best songs - Energize Me, Dreamflight, Discord, Empty Memories
They are the most emotional and best!
This self-titled album, I think the best not only in their work, but generally in female fronted metal. Power! Energy! Drive! And of course a stunning voice to the soul Floor Jansen. This masterpiece, which is 10 out of 10 points worth.
A great strong powerful album!
Voice of the beautiful Floor Jansen is amazing and hearing. Of course, the best album of their career and iodine of the best in metal in general.

Here is, yet, another underrated album. And once again, I'm favoring the orignal print of the album. The whole concept of this album is amazing, from beginning to end! I love the reverb on the original version because it made it sound twice as heavy and then some. However, I admit I liked the remixed/remastered of So Far, So Good... So What more than Killing is my Business remixed/remastered. But nothing beats the original. :)
LOVE this album, they ARE the TRUE KINGS OF METAL. HAIL TO YA!
This is real heavy metal! The heavist and the most powerful in this world! In my opinion this albom better than Master Of Puppets, no? Yeah! Listen this albom! Vote!
What the - is this doing down here? Metallica is way overrated, this should be 2nd, Number of the beast should be 1st! This is so underrated!
Come on! It's A7X's most well-received album! It was #1 on Billboard! Come on!
I like the newer album Fever better but I voted for this so Bullet For My Valentine could get a little higher up there so they could be seen. Bullet is pure metal and is amazing.

Brutal in every form. I would list some song names but they all kick major ass in their own way.
This should be number 1 because Volbeat is one of the best heavy metal bands there ever is with the songs A Warriors Call and Still Counting And River Queen.
20 million people who bought this can't be wrong
this should be in the top ten this was a major influence in power metal.
With classics like Afterlife and A Little Piece of Heaven, this album defines modern metal! A7X for #1!
