Which Tristania album holds most magic for you?
« on: 14 September 2004, 08:00:43 »

Since the Tristanian albums are too good to be compared to anything else, the only thing we can do is to compare them to each other, right? :P

Please vote for the list which corresponds to your personal ranking of the albums. The most important thing is how much magic you find in them, not how objective musical quality they hold (if indeed there is such a thing). For example; I recognize that Beyond the Veil is indeed of higher quality in general than Widow's Weeds, concerning both sounds and composing, but I still find that Widow's Weeds has more to give me. My vote is thus the first option - Widow's Weeds, Beyond the Veil and World of Glass.

BtV (brilliant album), WoG (not far behind BtV, another masterpiece), but I barely have anything with WW.

WW, BTV, WoG

To think WW is the last of the 3 I purchased!   :o

Beyond The Veil likely has the most musical quality meaning that the music is more complex but I think the guitars and heavier, faster sound in general took away some of the dark atmosphere.  Its a close call though.  They both have their strengths.

Well to be honest Widow's Weeds impressed me most. As far as the other albums are concerned i like them all - no particular order. But Widow's Weeds is my favorite one!

Widow's Weeds, World Glass, Beyond The Veil. The first will always be a the top of my preferences, is my favourite album. the other two can easily change their positions, it depends by how I feel. Accourding to me an album comparable to widow's weeds can never be realesed. without widow's weeds maybe I'd not be here, too. In a sense it saved my life :ph34r:

ww - btv - wog

widow's weed is bearing within some magic,i don't know how to explain - it is just MAGIC....those piano part on my lost lenore,then angellore,pale enchantress....amazing.
on beyond the veil i can recognize that they have grown up,it's just like bullet in the brain when i listen to that album....listening ww and btv i can die slowly but happily.....
and then wog....their worst album ever! you can see that they have lost their inspiration,the magic is gone....and because of that i'm just sceptic about new album... :mellow:

BTV -> WOG -> WW

BTV - nearly flawless; my favorite metal album (since I don't consider Agalloch 100% metal).  I feel it has the right mix of atmosphere and musical integrity.  Kenneth Olsson OWNS on this album!

WOG - I like electronics with metal.  Call me a heretic but I do so love it.  Gets more exotic every time I hear it, too, but will never unseat BTV.

WW - I like it, but it's a little too doomy.  It's not really my style.  Nonetheless, it has some great songs.  One thing I don't like is that the drums sound muffled.

#2 World of Glass
#3 Beyond the Veil

Ohh, that's easy!

1. WW (still the best gothic metal album I know!)

2. BTV ( also great and wonderful, but only nearly so good like WW)

3. WoG ( only one of many goth metal albums, the feeling that kicked me by WW and BtV wasn't there)

Positive Fans

Here are some good things said about the band, people here also said good things about certain albums of Tristania.

Since I only have BtV, I can't vote. The other albums should arrive at the store for me to purchase soon after Ashes is released.
