Well that just put Normal and What Happens Now neck to neck.  It's going to be an interesting 'race'.   Wink

nil rec. is a good song though Smiley    
I really like the occasional instrumental PT song, but there has to be SW singing in a song which makes it qualify as their "best songs". Instrumental songs are more like a cool interlude between songs, or in this case for nil rec. an intro.

MMmmmm.... That's hard to say based on just this poll.  There isn't enough information based on this to make that judgement.  Maybe if it was presented as a SMILE form where we had to determine how much we liked each track, then we could say that.  
 
I get the impression you don't care for it, where as many others have said to rate the title track very highly (just not as high as others).  My opinion goes something like WHN>Normal>CtP=NR.

i was half joking .. heh forgot the smilie  Tongue
 
yeah i really don't like it. It's kinda nothing until the solo and last couple of riffs. I don't really like any of the songs that much, even with CTP I was kinda going "oh i have to pick one? .. err.. i guess i'll go with this one ..."
 
Probably one of the reasons I haven't bothered to get the vinyl, or the DVD-A this time around.
 
How long till the next album?  Roll Eyes

Now that I've finally got it, I can join in the discussion. Hurray! Here's what I think:
 
Normal>What Happens Now?>Cheating the Polygraph>Nil Recurring
 
Personally, I think Normal is the best song they've put out in the whole FOABP era. It was stuck so deeply in my head today that I wrote out and fully illustrated the lyrics while daydreaming in my English class.  Wink

Voted NR, it needs some love, heh!  Wink
 
I rate them like this: WHN? > NR > Normal > CTP
 
Although WHN? and NR are virtually neck and neck for me.

This Ep is newer..    that's the only reason.
In reality it cannot even stand in the shadow of UTDS..

I think the idea was (some1 mentioned doing that) to have a big poll from all the studio albums and the requirement was that each album needed min. of 100 votes and I want to see that poll happening because I find it interesting, so go vote people.

WHN. And my vote brings WHN neck and neck with Normal. My preferences would probably go:
 
WHN - Normal - CTP - NR

After hearing Cheating the Polygraph live, it just moved from last to third. I actually love them all, but WHN is still the favorite.
