the s/t is actually really good. It's a little derivative, and they definitely hadn't found their style yet, but the songwriting is excellent. Cold Girl Fever in particular.

it's okay
like I totally get how people think it's really great, I guess it is, but I just don't see anything new it brings to the tale for the band and they execute that sound so so well / better elsewhere so *shrugs*

is that in reference to the s/t? No, you're right, it's easily their worst, but there's a few nice songs on it that I come back to occasionally when I want some less ornamental national ya dig?

yea
and that's fair that's fair
I go more to their recent stuff when I'm going for tracks that are non-LP a la So Far Round the Bend, Exile Vilify, Rylan

This is pretty much everything that needs to be said.

Digging: Gunship - Gunship

Portal 2 is p good too.

I'd flip boxer and alligator, but the tier structure is otherwise appropriate.
