Re: Determine Your Favorite Underworld Album - With SCIENCE!
[puts on multi-lens glasses & zizek voice]
yesh but have you chried ranking eash track indivishually, zshen calculating zshe averagshe to get zshe mosht realishtic zhcore


short version:

Second Toughest in the Infants: 91%
Dubnobasswithmyheadman: 82%
Beaucoup Fish: 80%
Riverrun: 75%
Barbara Barbara, We Face a Shining Future: 74%
A Hundred Days Off: 66%
Oblivion With Bells: 64%
Barking: 42%


even though this extremely scientific ranking takes a deep backseat to the rating i'd give out of personal sentiment/impact, there aren't too many surprises in here, even though this was fun to do. If I had more time I'd go by era to include b-sides/rarities
