I just love the way the band plays on this album. Playing with grace and the right amount of ferocity. Sleek yet vigilant. They seem happy, they seem focused, they seem to be honoring the songs and not fighting for space.

Ed sounds great across the spectrum.

Its such an enjoyable listen.

This isn't a knock on Gigaton, because I love it, but it has made me revisit and love ST even more. I don't know why, maybe because it's just so much better than the last two turds that I appreciate what they did back then, but it's great.

If Gigaton came right after ST, that would have been awesome. They are great back to back

Ive done the exact same with Riot Act.

Yes, Gigaton somehow brings out the strength of RA and S-T and the weakness of the following two albums. Maybe PRAMG was really just a two-album detour?

For me the two most consistent albums the band have released since 98.

"Just two albums" sounds way better than "just 14 years."

The Vitalogy/Merkinball/No Code/Yield era was the best. Can rank them any way you want. I choose No Code first but really any of them can go anywhere. It's all genius and chaos and perfect.

Then gotta go back to the start with TEN/VS, in either order. Throw in Singles songs too.

Then Riot Act/Binaural, in either order.

Then the rest of the shit post 2003. I've listened to Gigaton once. We can put that ahead of the other turds if you want. But it's not coming close to any of the 7 albums above it.

/end

Agreed except I'd place Gigaton with your top tier. Ed disapprovingly picking up Mike's smashed guitar on Letterman when they played Save You is the attitude that ruined Binaural, Riot Act, and actually almost Yield. Gigaton has to rank above Riot Act simply because Ed picked up the guitar.

Binaural is brilliant start to finish. The older I get, and the more I listen to Binaural, I can’t imagine a rock band making a much better album. It’s remarkably good.

Gigaton can't come anywhere near that era. I didn't rank albums I ranked eras and all my album rankings would fall w/in those 3 era rankings. Beginning/Middle/Washed Up. lol

Gigaton is exactly as good as Yield.

Gigaton may not be your thing but no way does a band whose washed up put that album out.

I might note Gigaton is really still rising for me. Something about its cohesiveness is drawing me in more than any other of their albums right now. For me, it has the sonic textures of Binaural combined with the accessibility of Yield, which is a strong statement.
