    I love After the Party so much but I come back to OTIP the most. I really like RW as well and I feel like it gets a bum rap around here.

    It's very close between OTIP and ATP for me, but OTIP just wins.

    I love all of the last 4 so much but I can’t vote for anything other than OTIP.

    so much I think Prestigious

    Also having a hard time deciding between OTIP and ATP. I chose ATP because of that album's energy. OTIP has all the "classic" Menzos songs and is probably more of a defining album, if that makes sense, but ATP makes me feel straight up electric. It's bouncy and fun without sacrificing any of the lyrical depth and emotion that drew me to them in the first place. It feels very much like an older, even more jaded version of the band we got to know on OTIP, but it's also their catchiest and (arguably) most accessible record.

    OTIP takes the win by a slight edge to ATP

    ATP is probably their "best" album so I voted for that. All of them are good

    hold on, let me catch my breath Prestigious

    Hard to choose between OTIP and ATP, but OTIP still holds favorable position in my heart as the perennial sentimental choice, and one of — if not thee — number one album from this decade.
     
  9. Sometimes I use these threads as a way to figure out which album I should listen to from bands I've never heard. Gave OTIP a shot and thought it was decent, but something I don't think I'd listen to on a regular basis. Through on ATP and I'm immediately hooked. Opening track got me instantly.

    I assumed every person on this site had listened to them before lol

    There's a fever coming...

    OTIP, closely followed by ATP
     
  12. I'm always quick to assume what bands sound like based on their names and album art. I've never listened to The Wonder Years and don't plan on starting today. lol. Gave these guys a shot based on some of the people who were posting in the band's threads. Otherwise, probably would have kept to ignoring them. My AP elitism hasn't completely died out.

    Sorry, I'm trying to fix it.

    Old school AP user mht was the one who got me into the Menzos — based on their first album nonetheless, which, well... I agree with Greg, regarding that album. mht recommended very little to those of us who frequented the Punk Thread, but that one always sticks out. Once they released that first EP, followed by CW, I was hooked — so, at least from my perspective, OTIP was such a huge step-up and hit me at just the right time in my personal life. ATP did the same thing, and I have incredible memories attached to both albums.

    What's MHT up to I miss him. That whole clique is gone for the most part, right? Or are they relegated to the sports forum now

    ATP and OTIP are toss ups for my top 3 favorite albums of the decade (which include Handwritten in it).

    After the Party really resonates with me thematically. It also has “Lookers,” which is their best song.

    RW will always mean a lot to me. I know it’s not as popular as OTIP or ATP but I really love the vibe of it. Transient Love, Nothing Feels
    Good Anymore, and Where Your Heartache Exists are extremely underrated tracks.

    Also, Rodent is my favorite song of theirs.
