I'm forty-seven. Forty-seven years old. You know how I stayed alive this long? All these years? KNIFE CRIME. The spectacle of fearsome acts. Somebody steals from me, I cut off his hands. He offends me, I cut out his tongue. He rises against me, I cut off his head, stick it on a pike, raise it high up so all on the streets can see. That's what preserves the order of things. KNIFE CRIME.

Here's the thing... I don't give a ten-penny fuck about your KNIFE CRIME conundrum, you meat-headed shit-sack... That's pretty much the thing.

Well, I hate to say I told you so, but this poll is giving exactly the result I predicted/expected.

Clearly those five have separated themselves from the pack as being the consensus Top Tier.

Thanks El Mel for giving this process a chance.

May I suggest though, once we pull those 5, having a new poll to pick 4 fav remaining albums for the "middle" tier? Because the rest of the pack is too close together.

Am I alone in saying "Leave" is one of their 10 best songs? I fucking love it.

The added poignancy in it being the last track on a Berry-involved album is pretty nifty, too.

You mean Electrolite?

I think it's safe to say that you feel anything but hatred when it comes time to say "I told you so".

I've had it as the last track on my own mix for so long that I forgot it wasn't the actual last track on New Adventures, my bad.

I was being falsely modest.

Personally, I never liked Electrolite as a closer. Not epic enough, but on a schizophrenic album like Hi-Fi maybe it works. I do like "I'm outta here" and the abrupt ending in a way, though.

Yeah, I can see that.

Anthemic/epic openers and closers always do me in. One of the best examples of this is Muse's Black Holes and Revelations... say what you want about the rest of the album, but "Take a Bow" and "Knights of Cydonia" make fucking awesome bookends.

Knights of Cydonia sounds a little D&D to me.

Which maybe explains why I never got into them. Someone totally hyped Absolution to me saying it was like Radiohead and I was rather disappointed.

I love Electrolite. Heard that at the concert last year as well.
