Telephone Thing is just ok to me. It's a bit dull and wears on me with repeat listens. Great Fall tracks, a lot of the time, feel like incantations. Telephone Thing is more akin to watching commuters get on and off a train forever. Bill Is Dead is too schmaltzy. I'd take Edinburgh Man or Reckoning over Bill is Dead if I'm in the mood for schmaltzy Fall. I'll give you the Monks cover, that does rule. And you forgot to mention the best track on the album, Chicago Now.

I think I'd take Shift-Work over Extricate honestly
