Best track on Nil recurring?
30. Sep 2007 at 21:47
 
Since people seem to have mixed opinions about what track is best on the nil rec. threads I thought it would be interesting to have this poll.
I say Cheating the Polygraph.

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!

ahhhh wouldn´t it be fun if we all agreed on everything ombasan?
There would be no need for a PT discussion thread since every1 had each others opinion Smiley

Not interesting to me, I was convinced WHN will win this one.  Wink It's the only song where there was a positive consensus amongst PTF members.

Not that 'Cheating...' is a bad song, I just always think of 'Futile' when I hear the riff, and thats one of the PT songs I really don't care for!

I started with (and voted for) Normal, but I would like to take that back.  
I keep going back and forth with the first 3 choices, the more I listen to them.  
I may change opinions again with the DVD-A mix.

ooh you are not a hapoy man then - only liking the one (let alone 'love' more than that)
 
i still find it hard to choose - none of them are likely to ever challenge my personal top 5 of PT songs bit i DO appreciate and like em all
 
(top 5 is also ever changing anyway - and not of the tracks were released in the past 5 yrs either)

Cheating the Polygraph is my favorite at the moment. I love the wah solo bit. That's definatley one of my favorite moments on the c.d. Normal would get my second vote.

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.

glad to see almost all of us are on the same page about the title track ...

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.

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

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.

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!

(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.

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.
