I agree with the War material generally being stronger than Boy, but I think that Boy is bigger as a result of the sum of it's parts.

Quality-wise overall they're about equal, but my preference goes to Boy.

I'm kind of surprised you rank Passengers so low yet rank UF so high.

I think War could have really benefited from an extra two or three weeks of recording. 40 could have been way better than it was. Red Light just needed less female background vocals and maybe a piano instead of horns. Then if one adds Treasure into the mix....

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I didn't like the superelectronic sound of Passengers, where TUF is much more organic.

Is it bad of me to hate the present I got today? I know my mom tries so hard... but I just don't like it at all. It's an electronic coin jar. You put the coins in and a sensor on it has a digital screen so it keeps track of how much money is in it.

How lame.
At least we've wished you a happy birthday! Try to make the best of the last 18 minutes of it.
