all of racecar is just.. phenomenal

i dont think ive ever heard anything that will compare

its still the album i listen to most, despite all the other releases ive seen since.

and thats including stuff done by other artists / bands / whatever

thats not to say VFVD or INWT is rubbish its just that racecar was the very essence of reuben to me.

its defined what i want from music for the rest of my life and if it was the only thing i could ever hear again i wouldnt mind.

its what i use to convert people from whatever has "the crown of gay" for the week to something real and deep and just... good.





ill also admit i had to google magnum opus...

haha

Reuben's magnum opus is Return of the Jedi. Or Short History.

Suffocation of the Soul was one of the most awesome examples of mature Reuben songwriting.

Despite Racecar being all about what got me into Reuben, I still think In Nothing We Trust is their best.

My vote is for A Short History....and I also think that INWT is Reuben's finest album, followed by Racecar, followed by Very Fast...Hmmm not sure how much I like the amount of shortened titles in this sentance but hey.

Although Jedi is a close second.

Has to be Short History. Suffocation is incredible, no doubt, but it's a very Oceansizey sort of epicness, whereas no one else has anything which even resembles Short History.
