This is the second time already that Sinnerman faces my #2 of the week. This time it bothers me even more, because I think there are quite a few weak songs here. Matchup four is especially sour for me in light of this one.

Hah. That is far and away my favorite matchup. :violence-duel:

This section of Ship to Wreck in particular makes it a favorite of mine - every time, but especially in the bridge:

And oh my love remind me, what was it that I said?
I can't help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed
And oh my love remind me, what was it that I did?
Did I drink too much?
Am I losing touch?
Did I build this ship to wreck?
