This is such a great song. Everything about it hits me in the right place.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

One of my favourites

I wonder why this was never a single, I said this a while back, i think it has that same magical feel of E=mc2 and i really think it would have been a big hit if it was released. I know other 99 is a good track but i just think it has an acquired taste and was never going to do anything chart wise.

With the benefit of hindsight I think I can now declare Megatop Phoenix to be the best post-Clash album. Upping and Global round out the top 3.

Global can't take the top spot because it ends with 17 minutes of a song that the band did better elsewhere, so I can agree that Megatop as a piece, a singular listening experience, is the number one post-Clash album.

I see Megatop Phoenix as the B.A.D. equivalent of Sandinista! The more I play it the more I love it and the more I respect it.

It's a joy. This, All Saints Road and Hip, Neck and Thigh are near perfect to me.

Those are my favorite three on the album as well, along with Other 99.

Fantastic album, my favourite in fact. Just wish that guitar was more audible in the mix.

Yeah, my second favourite BAD album. It would be number one if the production was better. So much better than the patchy (to me) Upping St.

I think Limbo and Hollywood are excellent. Dial is somewhat ruined by that daft off beat thing. Ticket is fun but lightweight and would've made a decent B-side.
