    The man can’t stop. Red Hearse is top tier, but Gone Now is my favorite overall.

    I haven't listened to anything from before Steel Train's s/t buttt

    Gone Now definitely number one, probably followed by Aim & Ignite. Red Hearse and Strange Desire neck-and-neck beneath that, followed by Steel Train. Some Nights is last, the shine wore off that album pretty quickly for me, even though it's by far the most popular/successful.

    Steel Train - S/T

    I love fun but I want to just give that album some love.

    Genuinely cannot get into Bleachers.

    Gotta be Aim and Ignite for me, but Strange Desire, Some Nights, Trampoline, & Gone Now are all close seconds

    Aim & Ignite is more a Nate Ruess album than a Jack album imo

    Can't get into Steel Train at all, tried several times

    So I'm going with Gone Now

    Aim & Ignite is easily my favourite thing he's worked on. Wish I could get into Bleachers more.

    i’ll go with Gone Now for this one. i think it’s the one where Jack specifically shines the most

    Red Hearse is great too

    Bleachers i the only thing he's done I've been into. Prefer the debut.
     
  16. I love that first Steel Train album.

    I put the fun. records in a different category, so I'll say Strange Desire. "Like a River Runs" seals it for me, because that song is just so beautifully heartbreaking.

    Keep on moving. Busy street.

    Are the Steel Train albums on Spotify in the US? They are not available in my country so I've only ever listened to the songs I found on YouTube/Bandcamp.

    Aim & Ignite is my favorite album of all time, but I voted Strange Desire for this because that feels like a "Jack" album vs. a "fun." album. Strange Desire is near the top of my favorite albums list. It's really pretty perfect. I enjoyed Gone Now too, just didn't necessarily connect on the same emotional level as I did to SD. Now give me Bleachers 3

    I'd have to re-listen to the rest to be able to rank them, but I do like them all.

    Genuinely a fan of everything here (not heard the Love, Simon soundtrack). So I've based this off nostalgia, just finding my musical tastes and clinging to Drive-Thru Records. Then Twilight Tales took me in a direction I wasn't expecting, and I loved it.

    There's no right answer here, though. All excellent.

    Ultimately chose Aim & Ignite but considered Strange Desire as well. I love the Terrible Thrills, Vol. 2 version of that record almost as much too.
