Cut the Crap by an order of magnitude. EW second. The rest? Almost never.
Samesies. I don't think I've even heard Higher Power or the Havana 3AM album beyond that one single.
Yeah, same.

Actually, I don't think I've ever listened to HAM.

Never. Back in the day I picked it up in the store...looked at it...put it back a few times.

But dont get anyone preferring CtC over much of anything.

I tried This is England again earlier today and had to stop. Nothing says sucks to me like 80s synths .

There's not much competition here to be fair. I still maintain CtC is easily the best song-wise. It's easy for me to shut out things like production and just decide if a song is good or not. I'd say there are about 8 good songs on CtC, EW has about 4. Toppers album is just him drumming to a bunch of mediocre soul songs. I love BAD but they were well running out of steam by this point and Higher Power is mostly uninspired.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I think Higher Power has a lot of cool ideas but not too many songs to hang those ideas on. I do like a couple of tracks though. It's quite a relaxing listen.

With the Topper album there are some tunes there but they were really written for T.R.A.C.

During EET Week, you're displaying a remarkable lack of self-consciousness.

Now, I haven't listened to it in a long time, but I liked H3am. Solid sleeve, too.

Yes but they're played live rather than programmed.

Really? I've played through a few tracks tonight and thought they sounded programmed. I suppose it's hard to tell if the drummer has great time keeping.
