Although Keep it like a secret is an amazing album, Perfect from now on gets my No. 1 vote.

The Wheelans gig some years ago was great...seeing a band play one of your favourite albums of all time in a small venue like Wheelans is hard to beat.

I wasn't too taken by Ancient Melodies and You in Reverse when they came out first...I felt they lost their mojo a little but I have since gone back to them and have started to appreciate those albums a lot more. There are some real gems on them like You Are, In your mind and Goin against your mind (which was amazing live at Primavera last year)

I really, really like There is no Enemy...it gets the Bronze Medal.

At the start of the summer I got The Normal Years. A compilation of their early stuff.

Some amazing tunes on it if you look through the shoddy production.

Around the same time I picked up Doug's solo album but I have yet to get into it... not what you'd expect...

Perfect from now on gets my vote too but not a tap on keep it like a secret

Was must listening to Normal Years yesterday. It's got some good stuff all right but it's patchy. It's also got Car ... which is such a brilliant song (and was the one by which I discovered them).

I would have gone for Keep It as the best, but after hearing them doing Perfect in Whelans I changed my mind. I think it's the most consistently brilliant of their albums.

It took me a while to appreciate You In Reverse and There Is No Enemy. They both seemed a little samey at first ..... the songs seem a lot simpler or something. Like them both a lot now though. That song on There Is No Enemy with the lines about Bill Hicks is just great ...

The Halo Benders kinda remind me of Mercury Rev 1.0 (ie when they were good)

Their last gig in Whelans was great. Nice version of MIA, Paper Planes at the end too.
