:o Well I guess everybody has their own taste of great music...
I was struck by lighting
Walkin' down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It's a dead man's party
Who could ask for more
Everybody's comin', leave your body at the door

Hard to answer two separate questions with a 'yes' or 'no'.

yesnomaybealloftheabove

really ... once again WHICH IS THE BETTER OS?

ps: i enjoy some fla but it always baffles me how many other songs (or specifically drum loops) i recognize being stolen ... ahem .. sampled (just to give two examples aphex twin and massive attack)
Theory is when you know everything and nothing works.
Practice is when things work, and no one knows why.
Here we combine theory and practice.

I answered yes; Your speakers might be broken - It's not that I'm a big fan of FLA but I can enjoy their sound :)

I can honestly say that it is unlikely any number of polls will result in FLA being removed from DG.

That shit sound you hear is your speakers squealing for mercy like cellmate bitches. Artificial Soldier's "Dissension" assassinated my Honda's crappy sound system. Now even the most upbeat radio songs sound hollow and insincere.

It all depends on what tracks you're listening to...

Very early stuff and their more recent offerings (especially anything on ArtificialSoldier/Fallout) seem to grate on my nerves a bit. Fallout and Artificial Soldier in particular have been deliberately overcompressed and it makes listening to the entire albums quite exhausting, and is not something I really want to hear in any of their future releases...

However, the middle stuff is generally very good. Everything from Tactical Neural Implant (1992) to Cizilization (2004) is IMHO very good and is really where FLA show what they can do, without being too noisy or abrasive about it.

Just my 2c :)

to each his own, Front Line do have some hit or miss type of albums. Me personally I like all their material

FLA is good. I do prefer the older material to the newer though.
