Default Stellar vs. DFA

I have only heard Death from Above, and I like it, but have a dilemma!

Should I buy the Best Buy version, and get lossless DFA thusly, or go for the yet to be heard (by me) Stellar.

I can only get one!

Jesus to thread plz

Stellar is much better, but I don't like Death from Above so we may have different tastes

you could just download the bonuses and get a regular/book version of the album.

zeitgeist - not bad, appealing, but without any real point of interest. finger picking adds alot to an acoustic track, billy take note

stellar - does not appeal to me. sounds like machina + TFE

DFA - very good. classic vocal melody, though corny music keeps it from being too great.

Stellar.

When i heard this song I thought that out of all the stuff done for this album this sounds the most like what this album should have been more like. the lyrics are so so. but it has that great Pumpkins bass line,
probably the most distinct and upfront bass mix of all the songs.The Ambient Guitar and keys are a nice touch as well.

Stellar, most definitely. However, DFA is far from the abomination people are making it out to be. I think by the title, everyone expected a death metal track (myself *******d) but what we got was a psychedelectonica-type thing. But for what it is, I like it. Just not as much as Steller or Zeitgeist.

Oooh, feel the love for Stellar! It's great!
Now if only some bold soul could do that youtube video Q&A thing and ask Billy:
"WHY THE FUCK DID YOU LEAVE OUT STELLAR IN THE REGULAR CD???"

Zeitgeist is eons better than both of them, but Stellar is eons better than Death from Above, which is an aural turd.

you can get DFA with the tarantula CD single, so why get a zeitgeist with DFA?

that narrows it to stellar (itunes) or zeitgeist (target).

i'd choose stellar.

is there a CD version of stellar or is it ONLY on itunes?

I'd get (and I did) the BestBuy version with DFA (I really like this one more than Zeitgiest) for the lyrics and download a version of Stellar & Zeitgeist for free. Problem solved.

Zeitgeist(song) for the win!

Sorry, but this 2 1/2 minute acoustic song blows away both of the other bonus tracks.....Stellar has potential but its to pretentious to really enjoy.

Death From Above has no potential, it sucks, plain and simple

Choose the one with Zeitgeist, it should have been the album closer for all versions.
