But when you a have a poll and you need to choose only 5 songs among more than 5 good songs, the matter it's "better than this or that", imho ;)
Yes, but that wasn't what we were talking about. You said you didn't understand why Wear Me Down had so many votes, and I said it's because it's a darn good song. That should settle it. The rest is all down to preference.
Wear Me Down is great - fantastic dirty riff and an excellent chorus with a great chord sequence.
And those bashing drums! But I can see how it can be abrasive for some people. It only works as a closing song, it's too grungy for the album really.

I wish we had a studio version of Day Upon Day, although like Never Clever it might have paled in comparison to the live version.

Now that would be a funny song to make a return, Day Upon Day for the 2015 gigs?! ;)

I totally disagree about Sing. The Seymour version is shit compared to the Leisure version.

Must admit I'm quite surprised they're considering bringing back She's So High and Repetition/Bad Day for the setlist. I thought the band didn't hold this album in particularly high regard.

I don't understand how you can like this album so much but not She's So High! One of the standouts for me.
