recently bought up the last few albums I needed and finally finished my collection for one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time.

left stack, top to bottom:

- Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good! (1990 pressing which omits "These Boots". might get another copy eventually that includes it.)
- Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
- So Far, So Good... So What!
- Rust in Peace (one of my favorite albums ever)
- Countdown to Extinction
- Youthanasia
- Hidden Treasures (B-sides/rarities compilation EP)
- Cryptic Writings (HDCD pressing)

right stack, top to bottom:

- Risk (remixed & remastered version. I hate this album, but if I had to choose, I'd say this version is more tolerable because it removes some of the ill-advised synths.)
- The World Needs a Hero
- The System Has Failed
- Greatest Hits: Back to the Start (signed by frontman Dave Mustaine)
- United Abominations
- Endgame (best album they've done since RiP)
- Th1rt3en
- Super Collider (Best Buy edition with three bonus tracks and a 3D cover. not a very good album though.)

here's hoping that this time next year they'll have another killer album out that's just as good as Endgame, if not better.

I got their new album and completed my collection of their only good ones.

nope, I'm not missing any albums at all. third and fourth albums? what third and fourth albums?

from top to bottom:

- Burn My Eyes
- The More Things Change...
- Through the Ashes of Empires (US edition with bonus track "Seasons Wither")
- The Blackening (2-disc special edition with two bonus cover tracks)
- Unto the Locust
- Bloodstone & Diamonds

no, but seriously, this collection is technically incomplete. you couldn't even pay me to buy The Burning Red or Supercharger.

everything I hoped it would be and more.

definitely met the 2+ years of hype I built for myself around it and definitely the best movie I've seen all year.

[originally published 5/18/14, updated 11/6/14]

with the acquisition of the Join the Dots box set, I've pretty much finished off my collection for my favorite band, The Cure. I've got all the studio albums, all the compilations, the remix album, the 1978-2001 B-sides box set, and a few singles. really all I'm missing now are the live albums and DVDs, which I've never had much of an interest in.

all of these are the various US pressings except for Three Imaginary Boys, which is a Fiction European pressing manufactured in France, and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, which is a Fiction European pressing manufactured in West Germany.

left stack, top to bottom:

- Three Imaginary Boys
- Boys Don't Cry (American version of Three Imaginary Boys with altered tracklist)
- Seventeen Seconds
- Faith
- fourth album idk I can say the name of on this website
- Japanese Whispers: The Singles (collection of non-album singles and B-sides)
- The Top
- The Head on the Door
- Staring at the Sea: The Singles 1978-1986
- Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me

- Disintegration

right stack, top to bottom:

- Mixed Up
- Wish
- Wild Mood Swings
- Galore: The Singles 1987-1997
- Bloodflowers
- Greatest Hits (limited edition with Acoustic Hits bonus disc)
- The Cure
- 4:13 Dream

- The Only One (CD single)
- Sleep When I'm Dead (CD single)

on the bottom, joining the stacks together:

- Join the Dots: B-Sides & Rarities 1978-2001 box set (4 discs, 70 tracks housed in a hardcover 75-page digibook)

owned but not pictured:

- Disintegration 2010 remaster on double vinyl LP

I would've updated this over a month ago when I picked up the new album Siren Charms, but as it turns out, the entire first pressing of the deluxe edition was defective. after a few weeks of waiting, the record label finally offered people corrected replacement discs about a week ago. I received mine in the mail just yesterday.

at one point in the past these guys were my favorite band, and this collection is quite possibly the most complete that I own, just slightly ahead of Katatonia - between bonus tracks and B-sides, I've got basically every finished, studio-recorded song the band has released.

from top to bottom:

- Lunar Strain (2005 Candlelight Records reissue)
- Subterranean EP (2005 Candlelight Records reissue)
- The Jester Race (2008 Reloaded edition + Black-Ash Inheritance EP)
- Whoracle (2008 Reloaded edition)
- Colony (2008 Reloaded edition)
- Clayman (2008 Reloaded edition)

- Reroute to Remain
- Trigger EP
- Soundtrack to Your Escape
- Come Clarity
- A Sense of Purpose

- The Mirror's Truth EP (German pressing)
- Sounds of a Playground Fading
- Siren Charms (deluxe edition)


also owned but not pictured:

- Lunar Strain/Subterranean (single-disc compilation including both the full-length debut and its follow-up EP, sans the bonus tracks available on the individual reissues)
- "Discover Me Like Emptiness" (bonus track for Soundtrack to Your Escape, bought separately from AmazonMP3)
- "Self vs. Self" (collaboration with Pendulum from that artist's Immersion album, bought separately from AmazonMP3)
- "The Chase" (iTunes-exclusive bonus track for Siren Charms)
- first press edition of Reroute to Remain featuring variant artwork (black border around the usual image)
- a nifty In Flames magnet included with the purchase of Siren Charms through FYE, features the Purpose/Playground-era logo
