I guess I just find the hooks to be blah as fuck. We understand your enthusiasm though.

Angry Gish Side A vs Gish Side B

Basically it is I am One/Siva/Bury Me vs Snail/Tristessa

Which would mean that side A wins, easily.

but then the considerate netphorian rethinketh, musing hmm. their are more shitty songs on side b, particularly suffer and window pain

so in the end Side A wins.

the most immediate songs are on the front half. Of course you have the two opening rockers, and then it's hard to beat the songwriting of Rhino, Bury Me, and Crush.

the back half of the album is draggier and more indulgent, but also probably a better indicator of where SP would go in the future (see Snail, Window Paine). Snail is also probably the best song on Gish. Overall though, the strong points on side B do not quite match the impact of side A.

I don't think Gish is long enough to really have any shitty songs. Suffer is probably the weakest of the bunch (except for I'm Going Crazy) but I don't consider it a bad song

agreed. I think it's boring and kind of annoying.

suffer would be cool if it wasn't for his godawful "constipated Sasquatch" voice bleating all over everything.

i'm 90% sure a collective ranking of those songs would end in some order of Crying Tree, BSBT & either Heavy Metal or Implode

not that I neccesarily agree with that

Bury Me, Snail and Tristessa are top tier, but the rest of the album may as well be part of Teargarden.

Is MII included in the Machina vote?

Please respond asap, I've cancelled all other engagements until this matter is resolved.

Awww yeah Siva is pretty good. Crush too. But the volume of Machina material makes this a pretty easy call. You don't fuck with Because You Are and Rock On.

By whom? I thought Pave "mental" Tune made the pole. So until further clarification from her, I think it's safe to assume that mii is NOT part of these proceedings.

Also Kid A is better than Ok Pc.

I have no opinions. My word is truth.

The rest of you (humanity) need to get in line.
