Call me crazy, but I firmly believe that Morbid Tales is Frost's finest hour. Sure, Emperor's Return, Megatherion and Pandemonium are classics in their own right, but Tales has just the right amount of crushing heaviness, weird noise, and unbridled stupidity left over from the Hellhammer days for it to sit high atop my Frost List. You can tell me I'm wrong, but I'm not. I have better taste in metal than you do. Just trust me on this one.
