*The questionable 2*

Opeth - Watershed

I'll just say it straight: I personally think this is their worst album. But is it a bad album? No, not at all. But when I listen to it I always get the feeling they could have pulled out more of it. It's like there is missing something, but I can't figure out what.

In Flames - A Sense of Purpose

I still don't know what to think of this album. There are times I enjoy listening to it, but there are also times I think that it is a huge shame that they changed their sound so much. The first track sums the album up in my opinion: during the chorus I always tend to continue with the words of Disconnected's chorus, it just sounds the same. This is an album which is mediocre for the likes of In Flames, but would be a incredible debut album for a new band. But I must admit that The Chosen Pessimist is one of the best songs of 2008.
