Their debut was phenomenal.

All their albums are really good, but Frames is probably their best. Each time I've spun this album, people around me were impressed, even though most of them were not progheads at all.

Frames is one of my absolute favorites by any band. Brilliant and moving! The other two are great, but not as great.

They're all quite exceptional, though I must admit Effloresce has the best flow.

I definitely think Effloresce is the best.... it flows flawlessly and has an amazing two-song opening!

Frames ... effloresce kind of diminished over the course of time for me... and I should listen to Everyone Into Position more...

Just finished listening to Everyone ... for the first time. Obviously I need to get Frames as it was Everyone... was astonishingly good. It's like they listened to dredg and decided to do something similar, only much better

That's the only one I'm missing !!! Can we do an exchange ? Because I can't find EIP anywhere in Holland ! Tongue
 
When I compare Effloresce to Frames it's easy for me. The debut is superior. Especially Massive Bereavement and Saterday Morning Breakfast Show. On Frames it's just Trail of Fire and Voorhees that are somewhat impressive but they come nowhere near the two stand out tracks on Effloresce.
Oceansize is a band that's really growing on me. At first I didn't think too much of them but now I think they are great.
