It's time. I have no idea which one I will choose but this will be a great excuse for me to re-listen to my favorite release of the decade and decide. Let's do it.

Session 1
Session 2
Session 3
Session 4

i think it has the most variety and the weirder tracks like acid mwan idle and ninefly are stunning. it has the hardest track, tt1pd, and the poppiest track, glos ceramic.

I think 3 is the most underrated (4 is the most overrated) but I think I'm voting for 2. "violvoic," "e0," and "dummy casual pt 2" are some of my favorite things on this box, and even the relatively weaker tracks on Session 2 ("9 chrO," "xflood") are still pretty terrific.

(iirc, #3 got the least amount of overall votes in the polls)

This is tough... do I pick the one with the best songs? Or the one that is the most cohesive 2 hour listen as a whole?

This is tough... But it's still 4 for me. Fuck calling it 'overrated'.

This is my quandary too. A lot of my favorite jams are on #2 but #3 has the higher jam-to-filler (sorry) ratio for me, and is the one I've been going back to the most recently.

re: #4: I've gone from thinking about "all end" as, "eh, cool that they ended it that way, but I will never listen to this again" to "omg why did they blight a nearly perfect collection of music with this pretentious nonsense."
