Fair To Midland Ranked

Bored at work so just felt like ranking my favorite band, including their live ralbums/dvd and EP.
8Fair to Midland
The Drawn and Quartered EP


This EP is only 4 tracks long, two of which being live tracks and the other two being demo versions of IFS tracks. While it's good, I couldn't really recommend this to anyone besides FtM fans looking to add to their collection.
7Fair to Midland
Welcome to the Dirt


An interesting DVD where fans could send in their videos from shows, then Cliff (the guitarist) synced things up to the best of his ability from a professionally recorded concert of theirs. It's amazing to see how far they've come (albeit just in appearance in most cases, most notably Cliff's hair), but still retain their amazing stage presence. Also has clips from Jon Dicken's last show and an oddly long intro to Dance of the Manatee focusing on Brett Stowers.. possibly alluding to his departure soon after this was released.
6Fair to Midland
The Carbon Copy Silver Lining


FtM's first, independent release. They were definitely still finding their sound and that's more than apparent on this album. For years the band all but dismissed this album, but I'm glad they finally rereleased this as there are some hidden gems on here.
5Fair to Midland
Live at the Machine Shop


You can definitely feel the energy watching this. The only downside I feel is that Darroh sounds a little off (he was sick the week leading up to the live taping) and spends a little too much time letting the crowd sing and crowd-surfing.
4 Fair to Midland
live @ Andy's Bar


Darroh sounds amazing on this, especially on the several covers they do. These guys really know how to put on a show, even a more acoustic one like this.
3Fair to Midland
Inter.Funda.Stifle


I go back and forth between loving the raw sound on this album and the more polished versions of tracks on Fables. I really wish Orphan Anthem and Quince would have made it on Fables, but they are perfect as they are on here so it's forgivable.
2Fair to Midland
Fables From a Mayfly


The album that got me into FtM. From the creepy intro of Tibet to the final chords of Say When, this is a perfect album to my ears. April Fools and Eggmen has been in my top 5 favorite songs since I first heard it years ago.
1Fair to Midland
Arrows and Anchors


Their best album to date. Fables is easily interchangeable with this, but since that had several tracks carried over from IFS.. this takes first for me. Short-Haired Tornado, Uh-Oh, and The Greener Grass are the three best songs on here imo.
