I did a top 3 EPs on the fly, but I totally forgot about this one. This probably is my real favorite.

It probably has more songs I like on it than Plans does!

I'm a Plans apologist, but the EP was certainly better than Narrow Stairs, which only had two good (scratch that. fantastic) songs ("Bixby" and "Possess").

Ha, I actually meant Narrow Stairs. Probably says something about the quality of an album if you can't even remember the title....

I liked Plans a lot when it came out. But I NEVER liked Soul Meets Body, which is as bad as its title suggests.

"Soul Meets Body," "Someday You Will Be Loved," and "Your Heart is an Empty Room" are terribly pedestrian tracks. "Crooked Teeth" isn't a favorite of mine either, but there is a lot to like on there. "Marching Bands of Manhattan" and "Brothers on a Hotel Bed Mothers on a Brothel Bed" are as good as anything they've ever done.

Agreed.

I like Soul Meets Body quite a bit for a lead major label single. I like Plans too, my bad on album title forgettingz.

I actually think "Marching Bands" would have been a killer lead single and probably more of a hit than "Soul Meets Body" was.

Doing my top 100 of the decade made me really reevaluate Death Cab in the grand scheme of the music universe, so it's cool that this discussion would pop up right now.

Munching Wands In Manhattan is definitely a fantastic opener, as well as the other ones you mentioned. I also like I Will Follow Lube Into The Crack, and Stable Dong, which is a nice little sequel to the bestiality epic b-side from The Photo Album.

My old roommate, who's a huge longtime fan, insists that We Have The Clap... is their finest hour.
