"June n July" and The Spells' "The Age of Backwards" were both bubbling under. Excuse 17 earned several votes, but "The Drop Dead Look" was easily the most popular of their seven tracks that earned votes.

realised awhile ago this sounds MUCH better to me played more softly than loud. i can't "hear" it when it's blaring. GREAT way to exit for the ladies in any event

I had CTD @ #2. Wouldn't have thought to do it prior to the poll, but I did my tracks list first and saw I had shortlisted practically the whole thing.

no first place votes for call the doctor is kinda insane (esp w/ 3 #1s for the freaking woods)

CTD was like a perennial #2/3 on most ballots, which does add up.

Just listened to The Woods again yesterday, and the mastering doesn't bug me as much anymore. Also, probably their best collection of songs, and by far their most unhinged performances.

For awhile DMR & THR were neck and neck for #1, but then the former got like 5 individual #1's in row, which sealed that one.

Damnit Janet Weiss & The Riot Grrriel (C. Grisso/McCain), Thursday, 24 April 2014 20:10 (four years ago) Permalink

Also stoked to see the hot rock so high. Definitely their most critically underappreciated record in its day, and to me their crowning achievement.

Yeah, I definitely remember AHOTBO being hailed as a "return to form," as if THR sucked or something.

this was a good one, a real broad spread of opinion and some definite surprises for me which i thought was cool, even if the surprises more often skewed towards the unpleasant for me. i had a p good guess at the #1 and so was prepared for the disappointment of the most inexplicably overrated track taking the prize. i will say that my mind was blown when i realized be yr mama wasn't even gonna place. wtf ilx.

anyway, good times overall. and great rollout and presentation, thanks dude

I only voted for one track from the s/t, and upon revisiting it I realized I didn't even like it as much as I'd remembered. Felt right to throw it a bone, though.

Call the Doctorb, the B is for Brownstein (Leee), Thursday, 1 May 2014 16:49 (four years ago) Permalink

Browsing through the ballots, it seems that almost everyone placed at least 70% of their selections! Surely unusual for ILM ballot polls, yes?

oh shit! if anyone gets these, please report back with how they sound

The Chainsaw-era tracks sounds less tinny (presumably a problem from the original mastering), and the early KRS stuff has a skosh more presence. I don't know what they could do to the 2000-up stuff, unless it's possible to do The Woods: Naked and have de-Friedman'd mix.

I Don't Wanna Ice Bucket With You (C. Grisso/McCain), Wednesday, 3 September 2014 04:09 (four years ago) Permalink

If that "Entertain" sample is any indication, it sounds pretty much the same, I think.

Hakeem Olajuwon Howard (Leee), Wednesday, 3 September 2014 16:51 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah always thought these albums sounded fine.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 3 September 2014 20:10 (four years ago) Permalink

Well, what can you really do to 'remaster' something from the last 15 or so years? I can see the need to spruce up the Chainsaw albums, as they probably didn't get the attention they needed at the time, and of course getting everything back out on vinyl should a big deal for people whom that would be a big deal.

one headphone listen to s/t and CTD flac and they sound so alive; and i noticed some tiny subtle little guitar parts that i hadn't noticed before. haven't delved into the rest yet

Tom Waits for no one (outdoor_miner), Friday, 5 September 2014 13:47 (four years ago) Permalink

having fun listening and trying to suss differences haven't done any a/b yet. i don't have engineer ears by any means; using a nice nad amp and a pair of sony mdr-7506 phones. ctd tunes seem to have more "bite". definitely a better mix in my mind when checking closely. just now digging into DMO and i think Janet's sound (noticing the snare esp) has more midrange (maybe it's in my mind). but it's def. a improvement overall. subtle for sure and for fans listening very closely. i reckon as i go on differences will be less obvious but who the hell knows. curious to get to the woods and see if i am able to stand more volume. typically listen to that one on the quiet side since it's SO frikken loudly mastered on the original. the originals do sound "fine" but the best band of the 1990's/early lost decayed (decade) deserves special treatment, wot

one beat is def my least fav

i saw that yesterday and it amused me how dramatically different their ranking was from ILM's

some dude, Tuesday, 21 October 2014 12:48 (three years ago) Permalink

all of the albums are good with a slight decline circa All Hands on the Bad One and, perhaps, its predecessor, which has at least been overrated here, while One Beat and perhaps Call the Doctor are underrated.

Didn't see that #1 coming, can't say the same about #2 ;-)

Ha, I was at that Echo Lounge show where they forgot how to play "Buy Her Candy." Didn't know it was on YouTube.

i wholeheartedly reject the judgment of any poll that puts "pompeii" in the BOTTOM FIVE of all s-k songs, below even "write me back fucker."

My mind is boggled that "Turn It On" is in the bottom half. >=(

Super happy to see "Sympathy" so high. Top 10 overall is pretty close to mine in a different order.

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Wednesday, 21 January 2015 18:06 (three years ago) Permalink

Yeah, my list is different than theirs but I'm glad to see "Sympathy" and "Leave You Behind" appreciated.

UPDATE: Shortly after this list was published, two new Sleater-Kinney songs were discovered to have been released as a bonus 12-inch single with the vinyl edition of No Cities to Love. The list has been since updated to include them.

"omg new songs, hurry figure out how they stack against songs you've known for 15 years" is some clickhole logic

Tipsy was that the Echo Lounge show Flin Flon opened?

campreverb, Wednesday, 21 January 2015 20:13 (three years ago) Permalink

Yep, with the Butchies too. Also saw them there the next year, with the Gossip opening.

something of an astrological coup (tipsy mothra), Wednesday, 21 January 2015 20:42 (three years ago) Permalink

the Butchies were such a great live band, saw them a few times.

campreverb, Wednesday, 21 January 2015 20:59 (three years ago) Permalink

They were. I bought a CD at that show because their set was so good. Recordings didn't live up to the show, but there were some good tunes.
