My album rankings[edit]

Album Favorite song Why Least favorite song Why
1. Apollo 18 See The Constellation One of my favorite TMBG songs of all time. The samples are great, it's very jammy, it's a song (at a basic level) about the stars, and it's got a hidden little song at the end. Space Suit? Hard to pick a least favorite on such a great album. This is probably my least favorite but it still kinda hurts to say that.
2. John Henry Subliminal Another one of my all-time favorites. The song is (at a basic level) about messages. The backwards part is great. Love a good song about a car crash. O Do Not Forsake Me This is a boring one and should have been replaced by Ondine or Mrs. Train. Same goes for Unrelated Thing, but at least that one has some instrumentation.
3. Flood Birdhouse In Your Soul Yeah, yeah basic song, I know. It's soooo good though. Does it deserve to be one of TMBG's biggest hits? Yes. Theme From Flood I know it's barely a song but everything else on the album is pretty good. Istanbul is way overrated, that's probably my least favorite real song. Does it deserve to be one of TMBG's biggest hits? No.
4. Lincoln Ana Ng Another basic song but this also deserves to be one of TMBG's more famous songs. One of my all-time favorites. Cage & Aquarium This one is just kinda bleh. Replace this with Nightgown Of The Sullen Moon or It's Not My Birthday. No, I'm not gonna say You'll Miss Me or Santa's Beard your opinions are incorrect. Santa's Beard is a really good song.
5. The Pink Album Don't Let's Start Yeah, another basic song, same as above. Chess Piece Face There are some more boring and shorter songs on the album, but none are as bad as Chess Piece Face. The overall sound is unappealing and yes, Toddler Hiway is better.
6. Factory Showroom Metal Detector Really good track. The studio effects are hard to replicate live, sadly. Was surprised to see this ranked so highly by others but I'm not complaining. I Can Hear You Fuck you it's hard to listen to this song I am not picking S-E-X-X-Y. A novelty song, this should have been a B-side instead of Sensurround or Unforgotten.
7. Join Us When Will You Die Another one of my all-time favorites. Classic TMBG by now. Great choice for the Join Us trailer as it literally is the album art. Three Might Be Duende I really do not like this one. The singing is very annoying, the entire song seems pretty lazy to me. Cave Fish or Listless easily deserves to be in place of this. I've seen a good amount of people say this is their favorite on the album and I do not understand it at all.
8. The Spine Broke In Two Another one of my all-time favorites, this one doesn't get enough love. "I'm an o rang gu tan." The World Before Later On *Yawn* This one is so boring, the only one I skip on this underrated album. Replace with Am I Awake?.
9. The Else I'm Impressed This one goes hard. The distortion works very well. Careful What You Pack I don't care for the vocal take and I also don't really like the instrumentation a ton. This album is mostly middle-level songs. Nothing stands out a lot one way or another.
10. Long Tall Weekend :middle_finger: Rat Patrol Great song, the guitar solo is one of TMBG's best. There are obviously more-loved tracks on the album by most fans but I think this is the best one here. On Earth My Nina Another novelty song. I would have rather discovered this on the 1999 demo tape than have it on the album. Replace it with Thunderbird (Demo).
11. Phone Power I Love You For Psychological Reasons Absolute banger love song. Impossibly New Could have picked from a few here, What Did I Do To You? is also bad.
12. Glean Unpronounceable A very, very good song. The effects at the end are super cool and work very well. Music Jail, Pt. 1 & 2 Weak lyrics, fine instrumentation, it just goes on too long. Phone Power has higher highs and lower lows.
13. Nanobots You're On Fire Absolute banger. I realize I'm saying that a lot, but there's not really another way to describe this song. Also the music video rules. Didn't Kill Me I would count this as a real song since it isn't grouped with the Fingertips revival songs, but this song is just awful. I probably have like three listens of this: The first time I listened to the album, the second time I listened to the album, and when I accidentally listened to it on shuffle.
14. Mink Car Bangs Bang-er. My dad doesn't like this one, and I'm not sure why. Maybe because it's too poppy? Idk, the demos are worth listening to for sure though. Older (Mink Car Version) The horns ruined this song, give me back the Long Tall Weekend version please!!
15. No! Four Of Two Didn't realize a song for children could go so hard. The demo is also worth listening to here, even though it's like 2 kbps. I Am Not Your Broom Just a weaker song, no real hate here.
16. My Murdered Remains The Communists Have The Music Maybe an obvious choice, but this one goes crazy. I think the Americans really have the music. Dog TMBG went too simple with this one and the lyrics don't do it for me.
17. I Like Fun Let's Get This Over With S-tier opener, and the lyrics are SO well written. The Greatest The vocal take isn't great here imo, and I don't care for the instrumentation or the lyrics.
18. The Escape Team Jackie The Clipper Great song, hard to choose a favorite among the good songs on this "album". Burnice The lyrics kinda suck and it's way too slow.
19. BOOK Brontosaurus "Bronto! Saurus! Bronto! Saurus!" Wait Actually Yeah No I could have picked a few songs here, but this is the one I dislike the most.
20. Here Comes Science Science Is Real Computer Assisted Design
21. Here Come The ABCs C Is For Conifers Here In Higglytown
22. Here Come The 123s Infinity Ten Mississippi
23. Why? xx xx
