    As much as I still enjoyed Octahedron and Noctourniquet, I think most everyone would love to hear a return to their crazier shit. We'll see!

    lol @Henry I don't think so. Cedric is a pretty big family man now, I haven't heard/seen much from Omar lately though. I think the first Antemasque album and the latest ATDI music has shown that they can kick some ass without drugs though, so I still have lots of hope

    obvs crazy is awesome too

    I personally never really returned to ATDI newest album, and I was lukewarm on Noctourniquet. Though I’m hopeful for some new tunes

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    I really enjoyed Noctourniquet so I’m excited to see what’s next

    Nocturniquet didn’t hold up too well for me, but I’ll still listen to anything they put out as TMV.

    for me it's pretty cut and dry

    De-Loused > Frances > Bedlam > Amputechture > Noctourniquet > Octahedron

    This is pretty clear for me too. Sometimes bedlam can hit me hard and eek out frances, but frances is amazing

    I was going to say that Bedlam and Amp might swap some days, but this is mostly it for me

    Bedlam >>>>> Deloused> Amputechture> Frances > Noctourniquet> Octa

    Imo bedlam is by far their best album. The musicianship on it is ridiculous and really one of a kind. That being said even their lowest ranked album is still amazing.

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    Of sugar and ice I am made

    Also my ranking, though Frances and Bedlam are close to interchangeable.

    Cum for the Cum God. Prestigious

    This is of paramount importance.

    How excited I am is in direct correlation with how high they are.

    Swap Frances and Deloused and that's pretty much my ranking.

    Bedlam could use a Steven Wilson remixing from the original Demos.

    The production and mixing has always made it unlistenable for me.
     
  23. Oh...well I'm excited.

    I want 10 songs like Roulette Dares.
