Aha shake heartbreak was their best album. Because of the times wasn't bad. It couldn't live up to the first to but it was still solid. I lost all interest after the 4th album
See this is where we differ I think.
I don't think excellent tracks define a great band though. A great band, at least in my opinion, is defined by great albums. That is the true measure of greatness to me and they haven't put out a great album since aha shake.
Like I said earlier, they've shown glimpses but haven't been able to reel it in and bottle it.
Yes, that is where we disagree. I think the objective of a band/artist is to make great tracks. I see an album as just a compilation of tracks.
