"the last track seemed kind of unnecessary (if anything, it should have been merged with the second-last)"

i thought the same thing at first, but with repeated listens it's made more sense. typically you wouldn't want to have album flow like that, but i'm sure a lot of thought was put into it, contingent upon the movie.

...in fact, i like the closing track more than the long one.

I don't think I will ever understand all of the Showbread hate? Is this because folks didn't like that they didn't make a second No Sir... Do people really hate Anorexia Nervosa that much, because that seems a little unnecessary. I'm also aware that people didn't like Who Can Know It? Because it was "boring" (slow.) I understand not liking the bands sound at times, but what have they done that is so awful that people need to make comments like "Shit band?" Has this website (or probably the internet as a whole) made our egos that big that we have to have our little opinon heard? Great album, excellent effort by a small band to do something out of the ordinary. Looking forward to the movie.

Also I really like Anorexia, Nervosa is my least favorite.

German, welcome to sputnik, where everyone hates at least one of the bands you like; at least one user hates all the bands you like; and everyone's got an opinion.

Like me, for instance. I can't stand WCKI? or Age of Reptiles, and I can only barely get through Anorexia. So yes, I wanted a No Sir 2. (Then, of course, I actually gave Cancer a chance, and liked it.)

Nope, but when they go a bit spiritual it sticks out like a sore thumb compared to their more middle ground lyrics.

GermanSchools, showbread gets a lot of hate from this site in particular because their writing philosophy is so against the grain from what's considered good right now. for example, a showbread album will never stand against a titus andronicus record in places like sputnik, and i can honestly see why. i love titus andronicus, by the way. showbread's appeal lies in their way of doing things, not necessarily their music, hence their "no music" logo. fans like andcas and myself understand it because we've invested so much time into the rest of the showbread world outside of their music.

that song rules hard.

and ya jacob each album is drastically different, so i'd say chronological order is as good an order as any.
