Star Me Kitten one of the best songs on Automatic? Green is a way better album?

We have threads for opinions like these...

If I never hear Everybody Hurts or Man on the Moon again, it will be too soon. It's not that I hate them, I've just heard them so many times where I'm past that thing where, you know when you hear a song you would probably not intentionally go listen to but if you hear it somewhere randomly (radio, for example) it's all of a sudden something you're glad to hear. Like any time I hear Rock the Casbah I'm all "fuck yeah, The Clash!" but I'm pretty sure I haven't actually chosen to listen to that song in the last 10+ years. The big hits from Automatic aren't even in that category anymore, but I can't call them shitty songs or anything.

In the context of the album, I like them. Everybody Hurts is a great fit in particular. If I hear Everybody Hurts on the radio though, I always skip it. I'm seldom in the mood for that shit.

Man on the Moon I will always like. It's like Pride or Streets at this point. Yeah, it's been beaten to death but I like it so much and have such profound nostalgic attachment to it that I'll always listen to it. Then again, I wasn't cognizant of anything in 1992 so I can't blame anyone for being tired of the song.

Man On the Moon is the best song on there for me. The last three songs are all great. I don't have any recollection of the songs before that. I remember it being quite a slog.

Star Me Kitten is a nice mood piece, it's not like saying Monty Got A Raw deal is one of the album's best. And you get major points for listing Sweetness Follows, which is my favorite after Find The River, never gets discussed enough.

My custom Automatic playlist (which omits Ignoreland, obvs) begins with New Orleans Instrumental segueing right into Sweetness Follows.

It's not one of the album's better songs; I certainly never see it mentioned as a favorite.

Well that's an evocative description and criticism.

Monty Got A Raw Deal is quite forgettable and not good enough to be underrated. It's kinda just there.
