But then it would be an 11-song Abackadolt mix.

Fair.

How about, "replace Comatose with another qualifying song" and we'll talk?

I really don't understand how someone could not like Comatose.

I wish I liked it more. But it rubs me the wrong way. Stip and I have gone back and forth about this for a long time. That one and Habit. I just can't get into those songs.

I'll probably want to tinker with it (I have now admittedly edited several times), but I'm happy with this. I like the two sided format.

SIDE A
1. Pendulum
2. Infallible
3. Severed Hand
4. Mind Your Manners
5. Speed of Sound
6. Getaway

SIDE B
7. Come Back
8. Marker In The Sand
9. Unemployable
10. My Father's Son
11. Lightning Bolt (with a proper solo to finish the song, fuck that fade out)
12. Yellow Moon

I feel the same way about Comatose and Habit (amongst other similar songs in the catalog).

By the way, I love putting together track lists and things like this. Reading other peoples track listings is always interesting. It would be fun to do this with other sets of albums as well.

I'm guessing everybody is simply mentally adding Sirens as track 13, yeah?

I feel that way about Comatose, but I love Habit (studio).

Does the fact that everyones tracklists are so different indicate that these records are not as bad as we thought they were?

Well, if everyone was picking the same set of songs, it might indicate that there is a large chunk of material on these records that ain't all that good.

However, I'd say most songs, apart from, I dunno - "Gone" - have been chosen by a number of people - and the tracklists are wildly different. So maybe we don't all collectively dislike these records are much as we think.

I still hold to the idea that Avocado is a steaming turd. The songs themselves have some vague potential, but they all sound horrible on that record, and no matter how hard I try - I just can't get into any of it. But you guys seem to be giving it serious love on your tracklists...

Backspacer is my least favorite PJ record and I still wouldn't call it a steaming turd. I think it has a lot to enjoy. A S/T is a better record. I'm not surprised to see the love it's getting given the thread parameters.
