Pageninetynine Documents Ranked

Since I've listened to all of pg.99's "documents", I'm going to rank them. This won't include rr10, 11, or 14 since they're either compilations or live albums. Also, note that I will only rrank rthese by the quality of the pg.99 material specifically.
11Pg. 99
Document #6

Document #6 marked a turning point in the band's career, the tracks became
more chaotic and strange. However, as crazy as they are, they're still relativley
uninteresting. However, the instrumental "Goin' South", which sounds like a piano
recording from the 1930's, is really fascinating and enjoyable. 2.8/5 (Best Track:
"Goin' South")
10Pg. 99
Document #2

Both songs are fun, but not stand out. They're essentially filler tracks, in a way.
Although "Machine Revisited" is defiantly the best track here 3/5 (Best Track:
"Machine Revisited")
9Circle Takes The Square/Pg. 99
Document #13: Pyramids In Cloth

The last official release by pg.99 is very chaotic, but uninteresting at the same
time. "Calm Song" simply sounds like they were bored and just wanted to thrash
around, and "Goodbye Face" starts off fun and interesting, only to end with a
relatively uninteresting drone. However, when the song is fun, it is pretty
enjoyable. 3.3/5 (Best Track: "Goodbye Face")
8Pg. 99
Document #3

Starting off with a compressed, noisy sample of british people talking, you are
absolutely assaulted with crunchy riffs and rude vocals. The only issue is that
theirs no real "wow" moments on the split. 3.5/5 (Best Track: "Mary Get Your
7Pg. 99
Document #9: A Split Personality

To be honest, I think the vocals on "The Lonesome Waltz of Leonardo Cohen" are a
little bit annoying. I mean, they just feel too melodramatic for me. However,
"The List", a Filth cover, is nothing more than a badass experience, which is
enough to give this split a 3.5/5 (Best Track: "The List")
6Pg. 99
Document #12

While some of the fast-paced tracks are relatively mediocre, the atmospheric
songs like "Virginia" and "Richmond is a Hole" shows off pg.99's talent at giving
songs personality. 3.7/5 (Best Track: "Richmond is a Hole")
5Pg. 99
Document #4

This rare 6" contains two tracks; a re-recording of "More Complicated than a Sci-fi
Flick" and an improvised track known as "Diagram for a Suicide". The re-recording
of "More Complicated..." is a worthy addition to anybody's collection due to the
fact that the instruments have much more room the breath, making it easier to
distinguish the bass from the guitars. However, "Diagram..." is easily the superior
track, for it is one of the most atmospheric and haunting tracks from the band's
career, containing textured guitars and precise drumming. 4/5 (Best Track:
"Diagram for a Suicide")
4Pg. 99
Document #7

Document #7 shows the band experimenting with progression, the tracks on this
record are very murky and bleak, especially compared with most of their material
before this. Unfortunately, some of the shorter songs brings this album's rating
down a little. 4/5 (Best Track: "A Sonnet to Both the Ugly and Murderous")
3Pg. 99
Document #1

Surprisingly enough, their debut demo tape is a very solid offering. The quality is
really bad, but that only adds to the messy, furious tone of the tape. Containing
older versions of "My Application..." and "More Complicated...", you're already in
for a treat. However, the bookends is where it's at, "A Classic Case of..." contains
one of the nastiest riffs in their career, and the instrumentation to "A Gun" is
intense, incredible, and memorable all at the same time. 4.1/5 (Best Track: "A
2Pg. 99
Document #8

There's a reason why this is their most popular record, Document #8 is essentially
a cumulation of everything the band has done up to this point. The scrappy punk
fury in "Life in a Box", the grinding in "Punk Rock in the Wrong Hands", the
atmospheric "Ballad of Circling Vultures" to the full-blown insane "Your Face...",
every track has a place and reason. However, the best track is defiantly "In Love
with an Apparition", which simply overflows with passion. 4.3/5 (Best Track: "In
Love with anApparition")
1Pg. 99
Document #5

This is hands down their best record, it's the kind of record that completely throws
you off guard with it's anger, passion, and energy. The instrumentation is solid,
and the lyricism is nothing short but memorable. Plus, the bass on "By the
Fireplace in White" blows literally every other pg.99 track out of the water. 4.3/5
(Best Track: "By the Fireplace in White")
