Have we really not done this? I’m guessing there’s no strong consensus but I’d love to be proven wrong.

Sometimes I say this is my favorite album.

I voted for Brand New Life.

This will require some reflection.

The Hillbilly Chespirito (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 30 September 2019 02:25 (two weeks ago) link

Could have also picked Music for Evenings

I’ve been hurt before
Sorrow knocking on my door
Heyyyyy

Can't believe this hasn't been done already. But reassessments are sometimes a good thing.

Duke, Monday, 30 September 2019 16:57 (two weeks ago) link

Struck by the fact that I have no idea. Real high level parity across the album, I think.

timellison, Monday, 30 September 2019 18:59 (two weeks ago) link

ditto

final day is prob deservedly regarded as their best song, but it's not on the album so...i have no idea what to choose

ILM achieves a first in opinions-not-having-about-beloved-album SHOCKAH

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 15:36 (two weeks ago) link

nvm it's wurlitzer jukebox

flopsy bird (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 16:02 (two weeks ago) link

I always thought Stereolab had a little YMG in them. "N.I.T.A." could totally be a Stereolab song.

timellison, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 20:33 (two weeks ago) link

N.I.T.A. is apparently their most played on spotify!

wurlitzer jukebox is great i agree

treeship., Tuesday, 1 October 2019 21:14 (two weeks ago) link

I can totally hear “The Man Amplifier” or “Eating Noddemix” done inna MAQ krautrock stylee.

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 00:25 (two weeks ago) link

I have decided on "Eating Noddemix."

Close: "N.I.T.A.," "The Man Amplifier," "Wurlitzer Jukebox."

timellison, Friday, 4 October 2019 02:32 (two weeks ago) link

Extraordinary album.

timellison, Friday, 4 October 2019 02:32 (two weeks ago) link

Third place for me: "Credit in the Straight World," "Colossal Youth," "Choci Loni"

Fourth place: "Include Me Out," "Constantly Changing"

timellison, Friday, 4 October 2019 04:11 (two weeks ago) link

Tough call between N.I.T.A and Wurlitzer Jukebox for me. N.I.T.A was the song that got me into them, but I've watched this footage of them doing Wurlitzer Jukebox so many times.

Perfect album. Perfect band.

Salad Days

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

Wurlitzer Jukebox.

Spironolactone T. Agnew (rushomancy), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 00:41 (one week ago) link

That’s the spirit!

(I don’t remember what I voted for either)

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 01:05 (one week ago) link

"Constantly Changing" - aptly titled as I could have voted for any of 11 or 12 tracks.

Let them eat Pfifferlinge an Schneckensauce (Tom D.), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 07:05 (one week ago) link

Always loved salad days, one of the best riffs definitely

plax (ico), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 07:46 (one week ago) link

Could have voted for almost anything otherwise

plax (ico), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 07:46 (one week ago) link

"Constantly Changing" - aptly titled as I could have voted for any of 11 or 12 tracks.

Yeah, me too

Beware of Mr. Blecch, er...what? (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 20:01 (one week ago) link

Yeah, I keep coming back to this poll, trying to choose, and I just can't. It needs all the parts to make the whole.

A breezy pop-rock feel fairly typical of the mid-'80s (Dan Peterson), Wednesday, 9 October 2019 20:13 (one week ago) link

Just stuck my finger into the dartboard and voted

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

System, Thursday, 10 October 2019 00:01 (one week ago) link

Leaning "N.I.T.A.", but I could go with just about anything. This is the best album ever.

jmm, Thursday, 10 October 2019 00:13 (one week ago) link

Choci Loni and Include Me Out deserved better

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Thursday, 10 October 2019 02:51 (one week ago) link

Wow, much more support for WJ than I had anticipated. Nice turnout too!
