    they've had worst songs.  most of Binaural felt off kilter to me.  the band was just not playing playing well on the album imo.

    I don’t get the hate for The End. I really don’t. I think it’s a beautiful tune. Heartbreaking lyrically, actually. Maybe it’s a better Ed solo song, but it’s still a good song. 
    Too melodramatic and cliche.  I'm not there yet either.  Gonna live forever....

    honestly, Foxy Mop and Pry, To and the other "experimental songs" aren't filler. same with Writer's Block and everything else. They are creative expressions of how the band were feeling at the time. sometimes they seem like a "bridge" from one song to the next. I don't ever skip them like I skip Future Days or Sirens. 
    Thank you for this ^^

    No, but I'll agree that Future Days is most probably bad as well.  I tried really hard to like Lightening Bolt......but I couldn't.  Tabled that whole album a few months after it was released so, I really can't name most of the tracks.  And while I'm here, my least favorites are Just Breathe, The End, Sirens and most of LB (save Pendulum).  Not gonna say they are their worst songs but, I am super tired of side 1 of Ten.  Experimental songs are rad....

    Agree on experiments. LB actually has a couple. Its above backspacer for me at the back end of the catalog. LB is generally fine for me...couple high spots (infallible, pendulum), many decent songs, and then future days...

    yeah, if LB were an 8 or 9 song EP, it would have been a home run.

    I would say that Infallible was different.  Kind of like You Are on Riot Act.  Pendulum would fall under the different category to me.

    I agree, too.

    Also, Getaway is a great tune but maybe not all that different.

    I think Grievance is great...probably the best "heavy" tune on Binaural.

    I don't dislike Breakerfall but it's weak compared to similar songs they'd done before (and even after, in some cases).

    Personal preference, that's all.  If we all liked everything the same all the cars on the road would be identical.

    Pendulum has definitely grown on me.  Infallible is a tune I just can’t get into. You are still wears the crown.

    You Are is a funny one, isn't it? Some people adore...some people despise it. 
    Would have been a better Soundgarden song, if you ask me.

    yes i realize that, but the words/meaning and delivery of this song should never have it at the bottom.... never. 

    I guess thats my opinion hehe

    Mind your manners
    boring
    overplayed
    song just goes on and on
    What does that song in for me is the line "or we can something else."

    I think it's probably the best song on that album. That's not saying too much, but enough for me to like the song, lol.

     MANKIND. This is the worst song on so many levels. The lyrics are just nonsense. The music is terrible. It’s worse than anything on Backspacer and that’s saying a lot. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    But it's so much fun when they bust it out live.

    I'm a pretty big fan of No Code but "I'm Open" is pretty shocking.
