Best Rise Against Albums09ShamsulBahriel
The Top Ten
Definitely the best Rise Against album and one of the most powerful and lyrically inspired records I know. The guys simply know how to play punk/melodic hardcore songs.
Take a look at fan favorites like Ready to Fall, Prayer of the Refugee or The Good Left Undone, but also at songs like Drones or Behind Closed Doors. The entire album creates an awesome atmosphere while talking about serious themes, combining honest lyrical content and the musical maturity to make this the best album by Rise Against. - YCLP33
My opinion the best album but Siren Song of the Counter Culture is a close second. You can tell this album is more polished and refined compared to their raw sound in earlier releases. This album to me is a turning point as
I find the newer stuff has moved away from their punk roots and more political and melodic sounding and dare I say... mainstream.
It feels kind of a shame to vote for the album that's way in the lead when some of them are undeserving of being so low (the black market especially). But it's hard to argue really. This is always going to be the best. - Buckerss
Prayer of the Refugee. Awesome. Life. Love.V 9 Comments
I listened to this album for the first time about 2 years ago, it was my first experience with rise against and for some reason I can't stay away from it for too long. I've only listened to Endgame and The Black Market, so yes, I can't say I've heard every song or album that rise against has ever released, but so far this is my favorite.
my favorite song by them is re-education through labor and probably will stay that even though i've only heard like four of their songs i love that good rock is coming back!!! its been a while.
This album is fantastic and has many great songs, "Savior", "Hero of War", "From Heads Unworthy" and pretty much every other song.
The energy is constant and never fades. If you don't have a headache from headbanging at the end you're doing it wrong.V 5 Comments
As a diehard Rise Against fan, I love all their albums. But this one takes the cake as the best of their albums, or my favorite would be better wording. It includes a lot of my favorite songs of theirs such as "State of the Union", "Dancing for Rain", "Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated", "Swing Life Away", and my personal favorite Rise Against songs "Blood to Bleed" and "Give It All". Also if I had to rank all my Rise Against albums it would be: 1. Siren Song 2. RPM 3. Sufferer & The Witness 4. The Unraveling 5. Endgame 6. Black Market 7. Appeal to Reason... That being said all the albums are classic.
Siren Song, Sufferer and the Witness and Appeal to Reason are my favourite rise against albums and I know how everyone says that sufferer and the Witness is the best I might disagree. Sufferer and the Witness is too similar song to song. All the songs are very similar compared to siren song which has much more variety in sound. I like these top 3 basically completely equal but I'd have to say the rise against album with the most variety in sound (making it my favourite album as a whole) would have to be siren song.
I agree that Sufferer & The Witness is number one, but this album should definitely be number two. It is full of great songs, I never want to skip a song while I listen to this album. Also, it had a rougher, more metal kind of feel to it which is really nice. This album goes from 'State Of the Union' to 'Swing Life Away', both very different songs, but both very awesome. The overall feel of this album is way better that Appeal to Reason.
It simply includes my two favourite RA songs :) to them these streets belong & rumors of my demise..
but all albums are great!
Compared to other albums like Appeal to Reason and The Sufferer and the Witness, this album itself really stands out from the others, due to the fact that took everything from all the other albums that they've done and combined it into this harmonic sequence of songs telling a story of the roads we've been on. One of my top 10 albums ever.
This is an album that exemplifies the belief that the band has. It is a testament to what they stand for and why they do what they do. It is almost a magnum opus of sorts as I understand it. The song Architects specifically has this internal hope that it will get better.
Best RA album, even better than the unraveling, which is a close 2nd-all the others are very good but not nearly as great, if you truly delve into them-in my opinion. - abcrgb
My favorite Rise Against song (Satellite) is on this album!V 9 Comments
Damn, how is Endgame ahead of this? How is Endgame ahead of Siren Song (that used to be their most popular album). Anyway, I've been listening to Rise Against since '03. Although they didn't really become my favorite band until around '10 or '11. But RPM has always been my favorite album by Rise Against.
This is true rise against. The lyrics are better than nowadays, the songs are harder and also more touching. The only reason I can imagine RPM has only got 12% of all votes is, that rise against doesn't play a lot of these songs on concerts in the recent past.
But to all who would vote for endgame or appeal to reason: Just take your time and pay more attention to songs like broken english or torches and learn to love them. You won't regret, I guarantee you
This has to be the best damn album I've ever heard. I love every Rise Against album to date, but Revolutions Per Minute has got to be my favourite. All of the tracks on this record are so close to perfection, all of which display how fantastic Rise Against is. I couldn't ask for anything better.
I started listening to RA between Appeal to Reason and Endgame, but after listening for 7 years and listening to every single thing they've made I have come to like RPM and the Unraveling because it is where they truly shine under the punk genre. The other reason is the raw sound, fast, and aggressive style is what really shows that they put effort and energy into it. I recommend that anyone who listens to RA listens to their first 2 albums and realize and appreciate how good RA was from the beginning.V 5 Comments
How the hell is this so low down! I love all rise against albums but the raw punk rock sound of this one is chilling. I think this is so far down because not many people have listened to it, so if you haven't I highly suggest you do
There most punk rock album and every song on it is amazing. The only album that I find be better is endgame. For there first album its darn amazing
Best album by rise against, rawer than the rest
Sure it's no Sufferer & Witness or Counter-Culture, but I'll be damned if this isn't their most beautiful album. It has everything that I love about Rise Against. Tracks such as "Methadone", "Tragedy + Time", "The Black Market" and "People Live Here" are beautifully written and define this album as some of their best work. It's fantastic.
Some songs are not bad, such as "The eco-terrorist in me", "Awake too long", "People live here", "A beautiful indifference" and "I don't want to be here anymore", but I pretty much hated every other songs. Rise Against is leaning more an more towards mainstream pop rock (I thought Endgame, as much as I hated this album, was a good sign).
I don't think it's a bad album, but not quite as many great songs as past albums. But it still beats Appeal to Reason in my opinion. My favorite songs would have to be "I Don't Want to Be Here Anymore", "Tragedy + Time", "Awake Too Long", "The Black Market", "People Live Here", "Bridges" and my personal favorite "The Eco-Terrorist in Me". But it does contain my least favorite RA song (Sudden Life), which while not a terrible song it really feels like it's missing something.
This is my third favourite Rise Against album behind Siren Song and Appeal to reasonV 9 Comments
This album has great songs. Historia Calamitatum and Death Blossoms are two great songs by rise against.V 1 Comment
