for me it's hard to choose between In Medias Res and I Just Sighed

I Warned You: Do Not Make an Enemy of Me

has to be 'in medias res', but will shout out 'This Is a Flag. There Is No Wind'

Voted for This Is a Flag. There Is No Wind.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

oh i meant to bump this but forgot

such a great album, pushing the noise and ambition of WABWAD even further without losing any of their pop melodies. every song is constantly shapeshifting from one fantastic melody to another or occasionally some sort of guitar noise freakout.

I should listen to this! I was a fan of WABWAD, but never explored the rest of their catalog until the recent 10th anniversary rerelease of that one and Hold On Now, Youngster

Worst song on the record by a mile, and maybe just a bad song

gareth don't say this about my favorite song on the record you dumbass

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 14 February 2020 14:23 (two weeks ago) link

he's right that it's three good songs jammed together, that's why it rules!!!!!

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 14 February 2020 14:26 (two weeks ago) link

GOT A CALL
ARE WE NOT INTERESTING?
FAIR TO SAY WE ARE NOT INTERESTING AT ALL!

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 14 February 2020 14:27 (two weeks ago) link

“i just sighed” does deserve to win this poll though. everything about that song is amazing

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 14 February 2020 15:22 (two weeks ago) link

what a maddeningly difficult poll. like 6 or 7 here are neck and neck for me at any given time

fits, Friday, 14 February 2020 16:16 (two weeks ago) link

today will probably vote "Straight in at 101" or "The Sea Is a Good Place to Think of the Future" tho
