I mean I agree with this. I find vitalogy more interesting but Ten is more solid song for song.

Oh I should add I’ve heard literally nothing that was released after riot act. Just assumed I didn’t need to. Would be happy to be corrected though?

nothing essential. the first half of avocado is solid, and there's a handful of decent things on backspacer/lightning bolt, but what those are seem divisive among fans. riot act was their last creatively inspired/driven record, imo, even if it didn't blow people away. everything after that has been them trying to 'return to form' like u2 did after pop. like i said earlier, the discussion on the creative process on the new song (and their departure from brendan o'brien as producer) has me hopeful they've finally decided to be a forward looking band again. we'll see, though.

I would say Avocado and Backspacer are both worth checking out. Backspacer is total pop and it kind of works
