Before I come up with a list of top 10 albums of 2015 (I'm having a hard time with that), I'll write a bit in here.
Like I said in the Now Playing Thread, I find myself listening to a lot of A.C.T lately, and I'm not going to apologise for that. In fact, I think this band must be the most underrated band in the world. I can account for EVERY album they put out. They're amazing.
Their latest album (Circus Pandemonium, 2014) is just as good as all the others. A.C.T always knows how to put accessible melodies within a proggy context and with this album they got even a bit heavier (again), there are some progmetal moments. I wonder what they come up with next.
I'm making myself some sort of 'Best Of' out of the five albums they have released, because in a few days, I'll have to drive a bit to the south of The Netherlands with a collegue of mine and I want to try A.C.T on him.
The problem is, I like all songs. Every song is as strong as the next one. I know Nicky listens (used to listen?) to A.C.T, so this is probably for Nicky, but anyone can help me. It must fit on a disc, so 80 minutes max. (roughly 16 minutes per album)
This is what I've come up with:From "Today's Report"
:The WanderingWaltz With Mother NatureWhy BotherFrom "Imaginary Friends"
:Take It EasyHippest FlopImaginary FriendsFrom "Last Epic"
:Walings From A BuildingWake UpThe ObserverThe CauseThe EffectFrom "Silence"
:PuppeteersInto The UnknownNo Longer Touching GroundCall In DeadFrom "Circus Pandemonium"
:The EndA Truly Gifted ManThe Funniest Man Alive
Which is 83 minutes and 41 seconds....
What would your A.C.T "Best Of" look like?
