    Decided not to go with the EP's.

    This is one of the trickier ones for me. I Love love love everything up to Omni.

    Still think Voids has the best song they've ever written on the most forgettable album.

    I'm really happy I got to see the anniversary shows for the first three albums. Such fun shows.

    I've come to appreciate it a lot more over time. It has some songs I really love. I think at the time it felt too much like a straight rock record and lost some of the noodly feel. That said, Into the Mirror and Animal Backwards might be my favorite 1-2 punch. I wish Broken China had made the record. I thought it complemented Into the Mirror really well when they released them together.

    These days I plump for Menos, but it could just as easily be HRP, with PoI just a fraction behind.

    Tough, but probably Highly Refined Pirates, with Planet of Ice a close second.

    I voted POI but I got into this band with voids, I think it’s quite underrated. Last EP was terrific too, albeit short.

    Went with Menos El Oso, but honestly could probably go with that, Planet of Ice, or Omni depending on the day. I still enjoy Voids and Infinity Overhead but not to the same level as the other three I listed. I honestly don't think I've ever gone back to check out Highly Refined Pirates. Judging from some of the reactions here, seems like I'm doing myself a disservice in that regard.

    I'm going with Menos El Oso. Sadly, for me, they fell off hard after Planet of Ice.
