Lol, interesting/amusing topic for a thread.
The one that instantly comes to mind is The Hookers 'Hookers II : Black Visions Of Crimson Wisdom', which i've absolutely loved
from the very first time i heard it, despite the fact that i absolutely recognize that there's nothing truly unique or exceptional about the individual songs or the playing.
The order of the songs, the pacing, the dynamics, the production & the mood however just work perfectly for me. There's nothing you could change about any element of that record that would make me enjoy it any more than i already do.
The planets are just perfectly aligned. Lightning captured in a bottle, where the whole is somehow greater than it's individual parts.
There isn't another record in their discography that matches that album in my estimation, (though 'Equinox Beyond Tomorrow' comes close), however i kept right on buying them, (with no regrets), in the hope that one day they might reach that height again, but it wasn't to be.
They'll always have a special place in my (metal) heart though, as it's better to have completely nailed it just once
than to have never
come close, even if, intellectually, i must accept it's intrinsic 'run of the mill'-ness.
