I absolutely love Spaceman. Super underrated.

    I don't like Cry Freedom...like Bottom 10-15 songs unlike. Happy for folks in WPB N2 that were loving it, but I really can't stand that one.

    Holy shit, that's a take and a half of hot for me.

    I remember when Crash came out and my wife & I listened to it a ton. But that first listen...totally pulled in by SMTS and soaking in everything to the last notes of PM.

    The lowest point on Crash for me was and remains Crash Into Me...everything else "new" remains golden for my ears. I say new because Billies was merely an okay song for me on R2T and doesn't sound as good as the rest album to me (also, I know most of the 1st two albums weren't new, but from that insane first big batch of tunes Dave wrote). Having heard, but not fully registering Two Step before the album was released was cool and explained (in part) why that tune grabbed me so hard & quickly...the bigger being because it's awesome.

    Not a critique of your opinion, just weird for me.

    It actually helps sort why ED as an album fell flat for me. UtTaD was something grabbed our attention, but we didn't pounce on it. Once we were assimilated, we DID pounce on R2T, the Recently EP, Crash, BTCS, AND Everyday. Everything before pulled us in, sounding and feeling so natural and excellent. ED was a massive "WHAT!", but mainly because of the songs and how much they failed to feature the band or its strengths.

    I respect everyone's take here...and knew it wouldn't be the norm (hence posting in this thread). I guess I don't like it because I find it "whiny" from a vocals perspective? I appreciate what the lyrics are getting across...but the signing is a lot of wailing/nasal sounds that I'm just not into. Hard to pinpoint but it just doesn't work for me. Best comparison (not saying it is a good one) is that I also don't like DYR, where the "Do Yoooooouuuuu Remember" is also like a whiny sound.

    What probably makes me even weirder here is that I'd bet I'm in the 80-90th percentile on ranking songs as +1's or 0's compared to 0's and -1's. This one (although haven't heard it much) is a firm -1 along with DYR, Come Tomorrow, Shake Meh.

    I guess this is an example of how different all of our takes / tastes are.

    And despite this....Crash is my favorite album.
