Better than FWN. Anyone who think otherwise is wrong.

with just the single word 'Bullshit' perchance? SN is correct though it is MUCH MUCH better.

I just found FWN apart from a couple songs to be mostly boring, Humbug actually has some life to it. Also I think Jeweler's Hands is a great testament to how much they've matured. It's great they're moving forward, and not sticking to the same formula, like alot of other bands. They can't keep writing songs about Sheffield nightclubs forever.

I'm gonna go excellent because as of now, I couldn't put any of their 3 albums in any order. I listened to all 3 yesterday and just plain couldn't decide.

Yeah, you people are obviously smoking a heavy dose of WRONG. I have no idea how anyone can say ANYTHING on Humbug is anywhere near as good or memorable as D is for dangerous, This house is a circus, Old yellow bricks, Fake tales, 505 or any number of their other songs/singles. You just can't so shut up. There isn't a single hit song on it and this is a band that's become huge based on catchy tunes. If they had put this out in 2006 instead of Whatever people say I am...no one would have payed ANY attention to them and that's a fact.

Moving on. I vote Fair. There are a few tunes I like, like Secret door, My propeller and Potion approaching. I'm sure some others will warm up to me but there's no way I'll ever think this is better than their first two and I'm sure as hell no track is gonna come close to topping the 140 plays D is for dangerous has racked up (my most played track on last.fm by far).

Maybe they don't want to have hit singles anymore and are exploring their sound a little more? It's not all about hit singles and quite frankly if that's what they were only about then people would become tired of them a la Oasis. It's no secet that turner has had his moments with fame and his dislike of certain aspects.

It's certainly not a brilliant album at all but I shall stay in your camp of 'wrong' and say that it is definitely better than FNW. That album hasn't even had a listen for over a year.

They got big because not only because of their catchy tunes but also their lyrics, attitude and energy.

I voted good. Favourite Worst Nightmare was just so bland compared to their first album, it never clicked with me. This is a step up from that but still falls short of Whatever People Say. Favorite songs My Propeller, Crying Lightning, Pretty Visitors.

Ok, Pretty visitors and The Jeweller's hands are my current favorites, especially the former. I probably should have voted good...
