"Black Star" is possibly the best song on this album.

It's time for "High and Dry" to go. It's like "Fake Plastic Trees" except not as good.

P.S. And why is the title track still here, anyway? Next to go after "High and Dry" goes (hopefully).

Edit: Well, I just listened to the title track again and yeah, I can see why it's still here. "High and Dry" though? Seriously.

And yes, a vote for Fake Plastic Trees is a vote for philistinism.

One of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.
I agree that Street Spirit should go, but Fake Plastic Trees is hardly worthy of such grandeur. It only stands out cause it's on a shite album.

What's wrong with Black Star? The majority here seem to think it hangs with the very best of the Bends. Explain yourself.

It's so bland. There's nothing particularly special or interesting or different about it, especially in the context of music in 1995. It's not a terrible song, but one of the best on the Bends? Better than Just, Planet Telex, Street Spirit, and High and Dry? Give me an effin' break.

That's why I'm voting Black Star, too.
