1) No-One Wins The War
2) Stuck In My Throat
3) Our Song

1) Blamethrower
2) Return Of The Jedi
3) A Kick In The Mouth

Which album do you prefer?

Very Fast Very Dangerous

Why? (No more than 50 words)

I would imagine most people will vote Racecar, as the song structures are more complex, and the whole thing flows better as an album. However, ultimately, I prefer the songs on VFVD, and that's what it's about really. Also I think the lyrics are more developed (ROTJ) and relatable (Blamethrower).

Why?

While a bit repetitive, I find Racecar to be far more enjoyable than VFVD. The consistency on RiRB is higher and the songs are more powerful and energetic than some on VFVD.

Very Fast Very Dangerous has a few songs that are better than anything on Racecar, but is weighed down by some songs that I personally find a little bit samey and boring. Racecar sounds more honest and heartfelt in my opinion as well.

Why? (No more than 50 words):
i was first introduced into Reuben through VFVD, so i feel a certain attatchment to it. Also l feel that the bands sound progressed further into what it is/was today through songs like ROTJ.

Why?

Far more dynamic and unpredictable album, songs more complex and the lyrics just seem more relatable than those on VFVD. Plus it's the album that got me into Reuben, so it always has a place close to my heart[/b]

Why the lack of In Nothing We Trust? You would get a broader range of answers if it was included.

I like the slightly more poppy angle of Racecar and overall I feel it flows better as an album. Whilst I do love VFVD Racecar tends to better suit my outlook on life.


Although my favorite album overall is INWT, it seems odd not to include it like others have been saying...

Although VFVD has better individual songs (debatable!) Racecar definitely gives more BOOM for yer buck.

I also wanna note that I personally rate In Nothing We Trust higher than both of em!

Would probably have to say VFVD. Blamethrower was the first Reuben song i heard, so feel a little more tied to that album, and for me Racecar has a two song lull midway through

And if you had asked, my 3 favs from INWT would be ambulance, good luck, and blood bunny larkhall, though VFVD still wins for me in the album stakes

Very Happy

Racecar is probably my favourite Reuben album, as others have already said, i think it flows better as an album. And i prefer the songs more complexed structures and unpredictability. Still gotta love VFVD though! And some B sides i like more than album tracks too!
Miffy anyone? Smile

RIRB (although INWT may lie above that)

There is not a single second on that album that I'm not sure about. It's the album that got me into Reuben, and every moment is pure gold. Plus it's got my favourite "bit" of music ever in it: the bass slide at 00:24 in Eating Only Apples.
