BWK only has one early single

the rest are B-Sides, alternate takes and outtakes

still great, though

I still really like it despite putting it last. I respect that they were trying to vary their sound a bit despite still not being able to break away from the same song structures. I'm going to check out Munki to see where it falls in my list.

Munki is either a return to form or a last desperate grasp to regain former glories.
Depending on who you speak to.

I don't think it's that bad.

Personally I think Darklands is JAMC's worst album but that opinion is almost heresy.

Haha, yeah I would say most people view that as heresy.

Considering that Automatic and Honey's Dead are very logical progressions from what Darklands started, why don't you like it?

I don't hate Stoned and Dethroned but definitely don't love it.
I listened to Munki but I don't remember it at all. As much as I love the band, I only need what came before those.

RE Darklands: It's a really good album but also my least favorite of the good ones. Still, no way Stoned & Dethroned is better than it.

I just never really warmed to it. I always found it rather slow & plodding

I'd ask you why you think it's such a masterpiece but then I remembered your allergy to posting something more substantial than the average length or detail of a twitter post.
