Sober (5/10) > Escape (3/10) > Overdue (2/10)

 

Hyper Music (7/10) > PIB (7/10) > CE (8/10)

 

TSP (7/10) > Endlessly (7/10) > TOADA (6/10)

 

Exo-Politics (7/10) > COD (9/10) > Hoodoo (8/10)

 

Undisclosed Desires (8/10) > USOE (3/10) > Guiding Light (4/10)

Aftermath (2/10) > The Globalist (7/10) > Drones (6/10)

 

Black Holes was the only genuinely difficult one to do for me. Went back and forth between putting Exogenesis for TR but Part 1 proved just decent enough to keep it up.

Starting from the worst track at the top of the list for each album, these are my three worst tracks for each album, but I like to think of each track as a separate entity. And also why I used the word 'better' as SFA is better than Hysteria but still the 2nd worst song on the album therefore making better than Hysteria.

 

'Worst 3-track span'. As in, the 3 songs have to be next to each other on the album.

I'm gonna steal your stolen list and added bit. Nailed it.

 

Hard to find 3 weak tracks in a row for OOS, Abso and BHAR, all too easy for Drones.

Showbiz: Escape, Overdue, Hate This And I'll Love You

 

OoS (my track listing, which may be wrong but it's mine): Screenager, Darkshines, Megalomania (those are all great though).

 

Abso: The Small Print, Endlessly, Thoughts of a Dying Atheist

 

BH&R: Soldier's Poem, Invincible, Assassin

 

TR: Guiding Light, Unnatural Selection, MK Ultra

 

T2L: Big Freeze, Save Me, Liquid State

 

Drones: [Drill Sergeant], Psycho, Mercy

or, [JFK]/Defector, Revolt, Aftermath

 

A lot of these were tough. Really the only two albums where you get three fairly weak tracks in a row are T2L and Showbiz. The others I had to add in track flow to chose.

I think I've explained my view on this before, but yes, I'm one of those rare Musers who doesn't really like HTaILY all that much. The three tracks preceding aren't amazing either but at least their melodies get stuck in my head and their teenage angstyness is fun and brash and young. To be totally fair, I haven't given any of those tracks a good listen in probably a few months, so maybe my opinion might change if I listened again, but it's kind of fun being the guy who doesn't really like HTaILY around here, so I'll probably stick with that. :D

Showbiz - Sober, Escape, Overdue - probably their worst on any album. Escape is good but Sober and Overdue are amongst their worst ever tracks.

 

OOS - Screenager, Dark Shines, Feeling Good - 3 of the worst 4 songs on the album. Still like them all though, especially Dark Shines.

 

Absolution - The Small Print, Endlessly, Thoughts of a Dying Atheist - feel bad putting TOADA in here, but it was either that or B&H.

 

BH&R - Assassin, Exo-Politics, City of Delusion - similar to the above, feel bad about including Assassin but Hoodoo can't possibly be included in any 'worst' list.

 

The Resistance- United States of Eurasia, Guiding Light, Unnatural Selection - easy.

 

T2L - Big Freeze, Save Me, Liquid State - I actually like Big Freeze, sorry Chris about the other two!

 

Drones - Defector, Revolt, Aftermath - pretty easy choice.

This is one the hardest things I've ever been asked in my entire life.

 

Showbiz

This was insanely difficult. I love all of the Showbiz songs but here goes:

Unintended: 7/10

Uno: 8.5/10

Sober: 8/10

 

Origin Of Symmetry

This one was almost impossible, but we'll go with this:

Darkshines: 8/10

Feeling Good: 8/10

Megalomania: 8/10

 

Absolution

Apocalypse please: 7/10

Time is Running Out: 8/10

Sing for Absolution: 7/10

 

Black Holes and Revelations

Jesus, this got me:

Exo Politics: 8.5/10

City of Delusion: 7.5/10

Hoodoo: 7.5/10

 

The REsistance

This is so hard. Like, I'm not sure if I can do this. The Exogenesis songs are some of the most amazing pieces of art I've ever heard, but all the other songs just feel so good. I think I'll go:

Undisclosed Desires: 8.5/10

United States Of Eurasia: 8.5/10

Guiding Light: 8/10

 

The 2nd Law

Explorers: 7/10

Big Freeze: 7/10

Save Me: 8/10

 

[uDrones[u/]

I honestly don't think I can do this.

Aftermath:8.5/10

The Globalist:9/10

Drones:7/10

 

This was insane! How am I supposed to say the "worst" songs from my favourite band D:

Showbiz - Sober, Escape, Overdue (poor Escape stuck in the middle, i do like it)

 

OoS - Feeling Good - Futurism - Megalomania ( again, I like Poor Megalomania )

 

Absolution

Pls dont make me do this... Why isnt it a 2 song span thread? :mad:

 

Thoughts of a Dying Atheist

Ruled by Secrecy

 

BHaR - Again, Sorry cant do it neither for The Resistance

 

The 2nd Law - Save Me , Liquid State ,The 2nd Law: Unsustainable

 

Drones 3 songs together in the album? Cant do, If only I could re-order albums i would put actual worst songs in there :p

Crikey.

 

Showbiz: Fillip - Falling Down - Cave .

 

Origin Of Symmetry: Micro Cuts - Screenager - Dark Shines.

 

Absolution: Blackout - Butterflies and Hurricanes - The Small Print (I'm so so sorry B&H I love you but you happen to fall between my two least favourites.)

 

Black Holes and Revelations: Soldier's Poem - Invincible - Assassin (that was practically impossible, but SP is the only track I actively don't like. Assassin got it because MOTP is in my top 5.)

 

The Resistance: Exogenesis 1 2 and 3 (yes I said it. But: I bloody love ALL of the Exogenesis...es but I don't think they work on the album. I want a whole album of a super-extended Exogenesis 1-10. Maybe a double.)

 

The 2nd Law: take your pick as long as it doesn't include Madness or Panic Station.

 

Drones: Defector - Revolt - Aftermath.

Going to drop some truth bombs on y'all.

 

Showbiz: This one is easy peazy lemons squeazy

 

Sober - Escape - Overdue. I like Escape but not even a reference to Canada can save Sober.

 

Origin of Symmetry: Love pretty much the entire album but I have to put

 

Screenager - Darkshines - Feeling Good. Darkshines and Feeling Good are great but Screenager brings it down. The rest of the album is too good.

 

Absolution: Just as easy as Showbiz

 

The Small Print - Endlessly - ToaDa. I like Endlessly but not a big fan of the other two.

 

BH&R: Just as hard as OoS. It's hard to find a three track span where I don't at least like one song.

 

Invincible - Assassin - Exo-Politics. I like Invincible and Assassin but not a fan of Exo-Politics. The live and GOB versions of Assassin are phenomenal but sadly they aren't on the album.

 

The Resistance: USoE - Guiding Light - Unnatural Selection

I considered Resistance - Undisclosed Desires - USoE but I settled on this one. I like USoE though.

 

The 2nd Law: Big Freeze - Save Me - Liquid State

 

All three of these songs are boring so it was an easy choice to me. Yes even the highly disappointing Explorers is less boring than Liquid State.

 

Drones: Aftermath - The Globalist - Drones

 

I thought of putting Revolt instead of Drones but I honestly don't know why Drones exists so I had to put it. It does nothing for me. Aftermath and the Globalist are disasters (one moreso than the other).

Showbiz: Sober - Escape - Overdue, pretty obvious choice

 

Origin of Symmetry: Darkshines - Feeling Good - Megalomania, don't really like Feeling Good wedged between the two dark serious songs.

 

Absolution: The Small Print - Endlessly - TOADA, I don't mind endlessly, just not too fond of the other two, and Endlessly is a bit of an oddball in the middle.

Black Holes & Revelations: Soldier's Poem - Invincible - Assassin, apologies to Assassin, this album is all-around brilliant but SP and Invincible are probably the weakest on the album

 

The Resistance Eurasia - Guiding Light - Unnatural Selection, Although Eurasia is probably the best piano-led track they've done in the last 2/3 albums, but Guiding Light is inexcusable and US is just a cheap knock-off New Born.

 

Drones Aftermath - The Globalist - Drones, bleh, disappointing end to the album imo.
