Lots of great options.
Really tough call between Enslaved & Madder Mortem. Madder Mortem I like a bit more, but Deadlands isn't my fav by them, whereas Isa is probably my fav Enslaved album. In the end I went with Madder since the one-two punch of "Distance Will Save Us" and "Silverspine" is just too brilliant.
 
If the Fen choice was The Malediction Fields and DsO's was Kenose, then I'd really be in a bind in what to opt for.

Requiem Mezzo Forte is a great album SmileWould have voted for Scenes but it is a bit overrated, I think (even though I do like DT in general.)
You love the music, the music loves you!

Nice to know me and Avestin aren't the only ones on here that know of VB.

All Flesh Is Grass...I love its strange vibe and oddball song-structures combined with occasional crushing heaviness .
 
To me, all of their albums are excellent to varying degrees. In fact I used to sort of shrug off Mercury, but listening to it recently, it clicked...in that it predates the whole current doom occult female singer trend by a decade, with more engaging music.

That would be a close second for me, I think the difference is that the epic Traitors Mark doesn't hold up as well as the longer songs on Deadlands; Silverfine, Rust Cleansing and Resonatine, do.

I feel that Eight Ways is the only weak album of the lot, some of the songs aren't as strong as we're used too and the production's off, there are some guitar frequencies that really cut through my head and I can't listen to the hole thing on headphones. I think BP M Kirkvaarg knew this with the way he changed it for the When Dream and Day Unite EP.

Hope that 6th album come along soon.

The Great Misdirect was absolutely incredible. I've played that one to death, Colours as well.

Opeth is the easy choice for me, although I'd take still life and ghost reveries over blackwater. Skye and maudlin are secong for me.

In the Woods...  - " liveintheKaledonianHall" incredible live double album
Maudlin of the Weel - "Leaving Your Body Map" Unique sound, Toby is really a genious
Opeth - "Blackwater Park" Perfect songwriting, I love Mikael voice
Indukti - "S.U.S.A.R" , violins!!!!!
Enslaved - "Isa" , when the black metal and progresive rock collide

I actually dig "Traitor's Mark" a lot, but find that "Resonatine" wasn't that epic climax I was hoping for regarding Deadlands, and the song "Jigsaw" irritates me a bit. They did that sort of groove thing better on their next album with "M For Malice".
I agree with Eight Ways not really knocking it out of the park like their other albums, but I still enjoy it, particularly the title track...kinda jazzy.
