Interesting that you'd pick Maroon. I think it's extremely underrated, Sell Sell Sell and Helicopters are DIVINE.

I think Maroon is their most mature, most cohesive album. Like, every song fits with all the other songs so well. It's an album I like to listen to in its entirety, because it feels like a journey or something. War on Drugs is a great song, but EtoE doesn't hold up as well for me. It...I don't know, it lacks the punch that Maroon has.

Although I love to crank Upside Down way too loud.

You're probably right, as a whole EtoE has some weak tracks and is not a very coherant whole album experiencce. But War on Drugs is far away my favourite song of theirs so I forgive all that jazz. (Although Maybe You're Right off Barenkaed Ladies Are Me is catching up to it). Maroon is great though.

Oh and Babyseat's on Maroon isn't it? I love Babyseat.

Did I put The Commander Thinks Aloud on my list? I damn well should have.

Perhaps some of their earlier, lesser known work would change your mind?

If not, Zero, I got your back.

Also, I heard "Under Pressure" for the first time tonight.

You two know "Lemon Lime"? Always wanted to open a movie with that.

I have heard a live version (good song), but no studio version...does a studio version exist?

And I have to agree Maroon is far and away the best BNL album, even though my favorite BNL track comes from Stunt ("When You Dream"), and a number of my top ten BNL tracks would be spread around their catalog; Maroon is just the best album. Have people here heard the early b-side "Back"? That is a fantastic BNL song.

I have so so so much live/unreleased BNL stuff. Back, McDonald's Girl, Steven Page is Having a Baby...I have this great live track of Steve and Tom Jones singing Little Green Bag, and a live track of them covering Close to You, and an awesome version of Say You Say Me. Just for starters. And since they started recording and releasing so many live shows, it's damn impossible to keep up.

I had Back and then I think I deleted it because I thought it was a rubbish different song. Me so stupid!

I can however vouch for Powder Blue. Steven Page reckons it's one of the best things they've ever done. He ain't wrong.

(All of which reminds me: I must get The Vanity Project)

edit: Massively totally unconvinced of Queen I remain

Yes, on the Japanese Irresistible Bliss and the French/German Soundtrack to Mary.
