Love the album, but Hey still wins in a landslide. Hardest part is to make a choice between the 2 odds on favorite, Monkey and Debaser.

First listen: This was just noise. A couple of years later, I hear more of the nuances of an area of rock I normally don't venture. I admittedly like the poppy stuff best.

01 | Debaser
05 | Here Comes Your Man
07 | Monkey Gone to Heaven
15 | Gouge Away
13 | Hey
14 | Silver
03 | Wave of Mutilation

Hey, Ulysses, probably "Crackity Jones" is your 15. Or your 13?

Mmm, I honestly prefer that you try to rank these songs...

Not a single wasted second on the album, as fitting my #4 album of all time. I would consider all the songs to be great, the Top 5 being phenomenal:

05 | Here Comes Your Man
08 | Mr. Grieves (This song is particularly high because my last name is Grieves ;) )
01 | Debaser
07 | Monkey Gone to Heaven
11 | No. 13 Baby

13 | Hey
15 | Gouge Away
06 | Dead
03 | Wave of Mutilation
14 | Silver
10 | La La Love You
09 | Crackity Jones
04 | I Bleed
12 | There Goes My Gun
02 | Tame

It's the only album I think would be improved with more tracks ( :o )as the B-Sides off this record are out of this world. I would probably rank them all above Hey:

Bailey's Walk
Weird At My School
Into The White
Manta Ray
Dancing The Manta Ray

Sorry for the delay on ranking the bottom half of the tracks, Honorio. I appreciated them more after additional listens, but there's still not much separating them from each other.
