There is for me no doubt that the best of the four is "Cheating the Polygraph." What an amazing track.  I just realized two days ago while listening to the CD in the car...then I KNEW that was the one for me. Smiley

For me it's What Happens Now by a landslide. There is so much going on in that song, and it's positively epic in scope growing from it's minimalist beginning and slowly buiding into the power chords and trancy trippy grooves and ending with the eerie sample. The vocals/lyrics are really heartrending and the guitar and drums are smokin. I don't know it just really has a very powerful effect on me. It's actually my favorite song from FoaBP or NR. Amazing song- it covers so much ground Smiley  And played Live it kicks some major arse!!!  
 
My hubby swears by Normal though Wink

No way, people... IMO "Cheating the polygraph" is easily the worst track on the EP! I voted for "What happens now", with "Normal" and "Nil recurring" close follow ups!

Cheers

I might have been a bit too hasty with my voting  Tongue I've been listening to Nil Recurring a lot and now I'm starting to think that What Happens Now? is THE best track on it.

(1) What Happens Now? - easily.
(2) Normal - some nice portions but some anoying bits also. I much prefer Sentimental.
(3) Nil Recurring - some interesting experimentation, but overall doesn't work well for me
(4) Cheating the Polygraph - I find this a rather ordinary tune, and the instrumental portions sound a bit forced, as though they said "Oops, we need to insert an instrumental section somewhere here."
 
I can't say this EP has grown on me; WHN is the only track I really enjoy all the way through.

"Cheating the Polygraph" and "Normal" are, in my opinion, nothing short of brilliant. "Nil Recurring" doesn't really work for my personal tastes, although parts of it are amazing, and "What Happens Now?", while still a great song, is overrated by PT fans in my opinion. So "Cheating the Polygraph" definitely gets my vote.

Tie with WOOH & CTP
Followed by Normal than Nil.
This disc compliments FOABP...just as Disc#2 Compliments "The Incident."
Both are Essential. Wink

I like the song, but I don't think the chorus is that good. The verse is really great but then the chorus is somewhat a let down. All a matter of opinion, of course.

Who can tell? I can't, I'm not a clairvoyant.
 
OOPS... Oh you mean the song of that name? I agree whole heartedly.
