Yea, Monotheist is...different. Heavy as fuck, but different. Polarizing too. I've heard quite a few people say it's horrible. Me? I thought it was cool, but the Triptykon album is an improved version of Monotheist.

On the subject of Celtic Frost...
Into The Pandemonium, an avant-garde masterpiece or a bunch of dumb ideas that ruined the band before Cold Lake?
It definitely has it's moments, and I think 'Caress Into Oblivion' is fucking epic, but the rest of it ranges from decent to really cheesy.
'Sorrows Of The Moon' is just unnecessary, and I really dont understand why you put 'Rex Irae' on the top 10 for Frost. Imo that song is hideous...
Overall it's a good album but not in the same galaxy as the face-melting brilliance of Morbid Tales and To Mega Therion.
I didn't put Rex Irae at #3, that was Nesquik's doing. I used to love it, and think it's still kind of cool, but 3 is a little high.

I guess I need to get around to hearing Cold Lake, Emperor's Return, and Vanity/Nemesis.
Wait... You actually own the original EP and not the re-released version of Morbid Tales with the two EPs combined?
