Surely there are death metal records darker than these...
Really? No Joy Division? They're pretty dark.
well if Embryonic is to new they should have at least included Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. Also the woman of the moment PJ Harvey should have had either To Bring You My Love or White Chalk included. Since they were so big on Suede back in the day I'm suprised they didn't have Dog Man Star listed either. I'm also shocked they didn't list Weezer's Pinkerton. I would have chosen Ladies and Gents...by Spiritualized over Let Come Down. Also suprised they left out Slowdive, Jesus and Mary Chain, Suzanne Vega and Cat Power.
They should certainly have included John Cale's "Music For A New Society". With lyrics as joyful as «all so that it would be a stronger world / a stronger loving world to die in»...
And the music... Scary.
I just want to reiterate that putting A Rush of Blood to the Head on this list is like putting The Carebears movie on the list of all-time darkest films.
Another obvious one they left out: DIRT by ALICE IN CHAINS. How much darker could it get than Dirt?
Any Care Bear's movie is NOTHING compared to Watership down. Now that movie will screw kids up for a long time.
They should include Venetian Snares' Doll Doll Doll. Subject matter is way darker than No. 1 on list.
