Taste is subjective and all, but I'm really struggling to see how you can list a four-song EP that is pretty standard punk rock over an album that even if you don't personally care for, was pretty darn original and bold.
I'm just a punk rocker at heart, I couldn't not include it. The EP itself is one of my favourite releases ever, but I put Unknown Pleasures above it because that album helped me through a particularly rough time, and I owed it to the record.
