OTIP > ATP >> RW >>> CW >>>>> debut
I think I’d say After The Party is my favourite song by them. Cool story telling and a video that actually really works with it.
Rented World is really cool though, and it’s honestly hard believe that album came out after OTIP.
After the Party and that's a pretty easy choice for me.
OTIP for nostalgia. But ATP is their best album...
Has to be OTIP for me. That album is just constant great tracks. That is not discrediting any of their other records at all. I just prefer OTIP that bit more.
I respect the one Chamberlain Waits vote
It’s as good as many bands in the scene’s best record
After the party for me
Listened to them all one after the other over the weekend and I think they all stack up well to each other. I read that Rented World gets a "bum rap", and agree with you, not sure why.
It’s seriously so good and it’s absurd that they just continued to release better records after.
But honestly some days Chamberlain might be my favorite
Chamberlain never clicked for me tbh
Rivalries is one of their best songs
ATP is flawless front to back. I respect OTIP votes for sure and it's a great record, but no record I've heard captures living in your early 30's feeling like everything is about to fall apart like ATP.
Getting me pumped for friday
Friday is the best day of releases that I remember in a long, long time.
Every time Menz has put out a record I’ve tried to get into it but ATP is the only one that’s actually stuck with me, so that one
Are there people who don’t like Rented World, or is just ranked third?
Rented World has some of their best songs from their last three records, but also some of their worst songs. That isn’t to say they’re bad songs by any means, just that they pale in comparison to what they’re capable of. That’s why it gets third place for me.
I don’t like it that much. I rank it 4th
ATP and RW are my top 2 (so far)
OTIP is a 2010s classic. That After the Party could be considered an equal, or even better, is just absurd. Yet here we are. This band has two unimpeachable classics, two more great records, and hopefully a third classic about to drop. Fantastic band.

10. Good Things
I just like After the Party better.
It's a close second for mine. Probably lags in the middle imo -- Charlie's Army and House on Fire don't do much for me. Nor does The Bars toward the end (which I liked at the start but it never stuck). Conversely, I like every track on OTIP, even Ava House which I know others feel is a weak point.
If you dropped those three songs from After the Party I'd probably rank it just as good as OTIP, plus it'd make the album about 34 minutes long which would boost its (already solid) replayability.
Rented World is incredible just not perfect like OTIP and ATP
