Hmmm quite hard to choose. I've always had a hard time deciding between Underdogs or Audio of Being. I chose Underdogs because Apparitions made me fall in love with MGB. I'm already regretting it because I love both albums so much.

Ha! View results!

 

I don't think I will ever be able to choose. BM is the album that really got me into them, and helped me through hard times, but AoB just blew me away and I associate the songs with AoB with some of my fondest memories.

I went with Midnight since it was an introductory album for me, so it holds a special place

Same. I mean, I love all the albums, But I can recall buying BM and coming home, Putting it in my CD player then listening to Giant on repeat for about an hour.

 

Kind of the same with 'Avalanche', It was the first MG solo stuff I listened to (actually first thing I listened to from MG or MGB), so it's my favorite MG solo album (Actually one of my favorite 3 albums ever, but anyways)

I voted for Audio Of Being, but I prolly should have voted for Underdogs. Audio got the nod only cause it's better produced than Underdogs & the songs on AOB are fuller & richer sounding - Underdogs is way rawer, but that's it's appeal too (I know I'm contradicting myself).

I love 'em both. Underdogs will always be a sentimental fav for me cause that's the album that got me into MGB.

I listened to Audio Of Being this weekend. I forgot how fucking perfect that album is. even Anti-Pop is pretty awesome.

I'm actually quite surprised by the results of this poll. I was quite certain Beautiful Midnight will lead.

The Audio of Being is my favorite, it just seems that every song is great, one of the classic albums.

Nah... any poll I can remember put Audio of Being first. The fact that Beautiful Midnight outsold Audio of Being is probably due to the fact that most buyers were casual only casual listeners. I think for the devout crowd Audio of Being will always be the favourite.

Beautiful Midnight had more "singles" on it.

I've always thought Audio Of Being to be a more personal album for Matt.

Seriously? I never even listen to it. And it's the only one I don't own.

It's so warm and fuzzy. I like its lack of layers. Oh, and the organ.

Audio of Being and Beautiful Midnight were a near tie for me, but I went with BM because I think as a whole, it stands up beetter then AoB, even if AoB may have better individual songs.

 

edit: its interesting to see AoB out front though. It shows how our taste as fans really changes, because I'm sure that if I was to recommend an album to someone who wanted to get into Matt, that would be the last one I'd pick. It might be the hardest one to get into and also the most rewarding. Makes me wonder what we will be saying about Hospital Music in a few years, as the reviews for it have been pretty mediocre here (myself included).

I listened to Astronauts today on the train. It is still excellent.

 

It's too bad Matt Good hates She's Got A New Disguise. I love that song...it would have been an awesome acoustic song on Rooms.

Really? I think it's already pretty much acoustic, and would have been among the more boring tracks were it on rooms, since it'd be so similar (like Strange Days.)

And there was already an acoustic version of Apparitions floating around that we didn't need the Rooms version. And Truffle Pigs was basically acoustic too. Prime Time Deliverance and Strange Days.

 

I really didn't think that mattered. And a reimagined sgand would have been amazing. But that's just me.

This is actually one of the hardest choices to make. For me, its no question between Beautiful Midnight and the Audio of Being. BM has some of the most beautiful songs MGB ever played, theres not one bad song. The problem is, I feel the exact same way about the Audio of Being. I guess the one difference is that when I listen to AoB, I can really just feel the band imploding. The entire cd flows better than any other MGB or even MG cd. So I guess AoB comes out by the slimmest of margins.
