I know I voted for SoS, but only one vote for HiFi? I find that quite surprising. It would be my second choice, followed closely by Guilty.

Nosferatu is a very,very hard one to beat(musically/lyrics).Guilty is its poppy alternative when the mood takes you. :booze:

For me, Guilty is the most accomplished. Great 'driving' cd.
But when I feel like Hugh looks on the back of Multitude (4 beers to the wind) Nosferatu is suitably angular and perverse.

The Bass in WWR is still one of the best sounds/runs (when the song breaks free near the end) that I've heard. Burnel-esque, crumpled, fruity, jolly, daft, high in the mix - just great at high volume.
Magically stupid song.

Guilty and HiFi are musts, but don't forget Sons of Shiva which is totally different and a weird and wonderful masterpiece. You can get it pretty cheap from the trackrecords website. Enjoy :D

It was a tough choice, since the ones I find myself coming back to the most at the moment are Hi-Fi
and Wired. I went for Hi-Fi in the end... fucking fantastic on headphones.
