PostSubject: Favorites for 2021!   Favorites for 2021! I_icon_minitimeSat Dec 18, 2021 3:21 pm

I know--here we go again.  We have to make a list of the albums we really liked or loved for this year.  Some of us have bought quite a few albums and that makes compiling a list difficult.  Some of us haven't bought much at all and that also makes putting together a list kind of hard.  But, I am still curious, what were your favorites this year?

Here are some suggestions for the thread:

1.  There isn't a requirement of how many you should list.  You have a top 3?  Okay.  You only bought one album?  Okay.  You need to make a detailed top 20 with explanations as to why you loved them?  Okay.

2.  For the sake of this board, I would ask for you to keep your list relegated to Christian only releases.  I realize this will make it more difficult for some as you haven't bought as much Christian as secular this year.  We only do this to promote bands and artists that are trying to share the gospel in some form or fashion with their art.

3.  Keep it in the realm of hard rock/metal/modern rock/thrash/etc.  We don't need Jim's favorite Christian polka band making into the list.

4.  Reissues DO count.  Some reissues were never on CD before, and therefore it would have been difficult for us to have heard them any other way.  So, we will count them if the reissue happened in 2021.  While I didn't buy a lot of reissues this year that I previously had on CD, I did buy a few that were taken from other sources, remastered, and released on CD for the first time.  I want to count those, so why shouldn't you?

5.  HAVE FUN WITH THIS!

6.  There is no number 6, but it made this announcement look more official and that it would drag on forever which it could potentially do if I keep on typing and typing and typing.  You will probably start praying that I have a heart attack and die if I keep this up.  You may already be praying that if you really know me, but I really don't want to know which of you are praying for my demise.  Of course, if you are doing so, at least be a pal and send cash to my wife to help cover the expenses of my cremation so that she can move on with her life and find happiness again instead of being poor and destitute forever.  Okay, I think that is enough rambling, and I hope at least one of you were gullible enough to continue reading to the very end.

I think I’ve only bought Trytan’s Blood of Kings for 2021 releases, but it’s great! We’ll see if I snag any others before year’s end (or if Santa brings me any).

Oh man all I bought new this year was Christian Polka!  Thwarted by rule #3!  Laughing

I'm gonna go with a top 4 (since I got 8 new albums this year).  Most of which I have thoroughly enjoyed.

1. Warpriest - Dark Ages.  No sophomore slump for this doom artist!  The addition of Mrs. Warpriest on co-lead vocals was a stroke of brilliance.  I expect more great things from this talented duo in the future.
2. Gale Force - Subhuman.  Absolutely fantastic to hear Mike Lee/Drive and Tracy G back in action and I think they did a fantastic job on this album. 
3. All For The King - Let There Be Light  Another fantastic sophomore album.  This has to be my favorite European band right now.
4. The Brave - I liked this album much better with repeated listens.  There were a few tracks I found myself skipping with repeated listens, but overall a fantastic album from this veteran band.

Honorable mention.  I really liked Limberlost's second "extended EP" "The Good Fight" the only thing I didn't care for was the throwaway cover of "Stand By You".  It just didn't fit with most of the album and I tend to skip it every time.

Disappointments  Crying or Very sad
1. No new Big Chris & D'Bare Bones Band album this year
2. No new Joshua's Creed album this year
3. No new Evans & Stokes album this year

I can't do a 'top' list yet, as I've got 9 albums on the way that are all new releases (or re-releases) that I haven't heard yet.

However, here's a top 5 that I can say at the moment...

1 - Gale Force - Subhuman.  Brilliant to hear Mike Lee on vocals after such a long time.  Even though the lyrics aren't as open as Barren Cross, this album still packs a punch and I've listened to it loads.
2 - Moonshine Zombies - Great album from the guys behind WhiteRay.
3 - Northern Flame - Twisted Reality
4 -Trytan - Blood Of Kings.  Again, great to see another vocalist come back after such a long time.  I think this would have been my number one, as I'm a lyrics guy, and this one has great lyrics.  It also fits well in with the other Trytan albums.  My only gripe is that the songs are too long.  I'm a fan (bit like Chris) of the 3 - 4 minute songs.  I can handle longer ones, but not too many of them.
5 - Bride - Here Is Your God.  An early 2021 release (I think it was almost 2020).  Another good Bride album, and in my opinion, their best in many years.

I didn't realize that they had released their second one yet.  I knew they were working on it, but I had not seen that they even had this available until I saw your post.

^LOL.

Re: Black Rider, I hear ya.  While I do prefer the first two albums, I still enjoy it for what it is and it's nice having something quite different in my library.

Have you heard his Wisdom & Wages Christmas EP?  It's pretty fun!

I'm pretty sure I haven't purchased anything this year so I'll say All For The King just because.

My nine CD's are still circling in a plane somewhere.  If someone spots them, could they grab them and bring them to my place.

Thanks.

Hey, at least they aren't on a cargo ship being held off the coast of California.  While other states opened emergency ports to get merchandise and parts flowing again, we still have 91 of them just sitting there.  One has been there since Oct. 14 and probably won't get unloaded until after 2022 begins.

Your plane will have to land sometime.  I don't think they do mid-air refueling for civilian planes.

Since it was reissued this year and it’s one of my very favorites and I got it for Christmas, I’ll say:

Petra: Not of This World (Legends of Rock series)

I guess I am the only one buying ridiculous amounts of music this year.  So, here is my list:


1.  THE BRAVE - Evie's Little Garden
2.  All For The King - Let There Be Light  (Just heard it was out not long ago and got it.  Loved it!)
3. Darkhorse Hero - Living For A Bigger Kingdom
4.  Chariot - History Lesson
5.  Weapons Of God - The War Between Us
6.  Thee Final Chaptre - So Let It Be Done  (Would have ranked higher if not for a 9 minute song)
7.  Galeforce - Subhuman
8.  Swingle & Thomson - Firestorm
9.  Modest Attraction - Get Ready (reissue)
10.  Christian Lilgegren - Melodic Passion
11.  Moonshine Zombies




And that's it, folks.  I bought more than this, but some I didn't care for as you can see from the Least Favorites for 2021 thread.
