I'll fight anyone who says that anything else is a better debut album.
I'll be the judge of what's good and what isn't, thank you... ;)

Circus Maximus? Possibly?

Personally, as great as Entropia was, I think they only went upwards from there all the way through Remedy Lane.

Yeah I'm not sure there's a stronger prog debut than Entropia.

Now THIS is funny timing!!! As I click on the board just to check in, and see this thread has a new post, my iPod randomizes to "Oblivion Ocean" off Entropia. Given that I have probably about 750 CDs on here right now, this is pretty amazing to me..... :)

My 2nd favorite PoS, after Remedy Lane. It was most certainly a fresh, striking sound when it dropped back in the late 90s: prog without aping anything that had come before.

Remedy Lane and Perfect Element are 1A and 1B for me, with both being perfect albums. Remedy Lane just barely edges it out in my mind, but I couldn't really point to any single reason why.

Entropia is my favorite partly due to timing. It blew my mind, and every DT-clone around at the time, completely out of the water. They were doing things that no one else did. One of the most solid debuts in the genre, along with Riverside - Out of Myself and Evergrey - The Dark Discovery (why oh why do these bands not play material from those brilliant debuts!?!?!)

Perfect Element is probably my second favorite. It was probably their most well-polished, mature album. One Hour comes after that, as a fair bit of it leaves me somewhat cold (Water, Black Hills, Big Machine), but the high points are still fantastic. Then Remedy Lane. Then off the cliff into not worth the time.

It's so sad that they were easily my favorite progmetal band up through Remedy Lane, but now I can't stand them (apart from those still fantastic first few albums). Such a shame.

Daniel - please re-master The Perfect Element. The Remedy Lane disc turned out fabulous. Please do the same for The Perfect Element. Thank you.
