***guess its time to stop pretending this is my favourite, eh?

Guy - 8.07
Ian - 8.00*
Joe- 7.5
Instrumentals - 7.04**

well done guy!

*ian would have won if it wasn’t for a horrifically low score for one song. Can you guess what it is??
**instrument soundtrack brings the average down significantly

General observations
Interesting to see how guy gradually became the moe regular vocalist over time
Kill taker is proper solid, but no songs i gave maximum marks to. Rend it comes closest.
Fucking hell. What an album the argument is. What a way to end a career.
I’m so tired deserves better than the instrument soundtrack.
Still surprised by how trebley repeater sounds

data notes
I didn’t include first demo
111 songs were ranked
Lowest score 3
Highest score 10
5 = an ‘average’ song in general terms.

Good night!

Another vote for davidoff the argument is the best album

Hmm. Annoyingly dis had reformatted my ranking - instrument soundtrack should be 11th

I was recently given all the Fugazi albums on CD, along with some EPs and twelve bootlegs of shows. I haven’t listened to a single one. Might start by using thewarn’s comprehensive ratings.

Obviously id need to email it.

I’m surprised Long Distance Runner isn’t a 10

Casavettes from Killtaker is my favourite.

What you got against Brendan?

Sorry - should have made that clearer. Ranking according to the lead vocalist on each song.

Gave it a 9. Would be in my top 15.

  1. Close!

Handclaps nearly take it to 10!

Here comes the argument

Honestly cannot believe Blueprint isn’t 10/10.

I have the remastered version of Repeater and sadly it doesn’t really seem to do much to correct the levels or mix. :frowning:

I can get behind all your 10s but I would certainly add more to them.

Also interesting to see the effect of overall strength pushing Steady Diet up as a “go to” fave even if it lacks your favourite tracks.

And yeah, The Argument is so good. Recall it not getting a top reception on release but it feels like a real true grower.

Cheers Warny
