Love it.

Does anyone know why it's called The 27 points, or who MES is talking to on M.H.'s
Jokes?

Also, the sample on 'Outro' is from the video game 'Revenge Of Shinobi.' :)

Noel's Chemical Effluence quite rightly won the original poll, still it'd be nice to give the rest a chance. :D

I have the Sanctuary reissue, so miss this track. I heard it's a gem. :unsure:

I really have no idea why they left that out, as it's indeed a gem.

Return.

The bass is BRUTAL on this version :applaud:

Definitely. That song is one of my all-time Fall favourites.
I've got no time for intellectual music eg Hergest Ridge

Sure I read somewhere it was something to do with this , though how it relates I'm not sure.

The Nazis (27 points)

I voted for Bounces. There are many versions of 'Life Just Bounces,' and there's something in all of them to like, it's one of my favorite Fall songs... but... strangely, this is my favorite version. Short as it is. The keyboard/faux-brass never sounded better than on this one, it makes the song. That and the strange guest vocals...

There are 27 songs. (If you discount Glasgow Advice, anyway. )

If you ever get a chance to hear 'In The City,' (or if you have it already), the 'Bill Is Dead' on that is even better than the very cool '27 Points' version. I was just playing this the other day, and they really do a great job on it.

Does anyone know why it's called The 27 points,

It's up there amongst my favourite Fall albums. I'm not going to vote because they're all good.

Maybe Passable is my favourite.

it's because the Sanctuary reissue was mastered from vinyl.

It was on the original cd version, presumably as an extra, and therefore wasn't given .'sanctuary ' on the reissue.

Voted for Noel's Chemical Effluence. Surreal and brilliant.

The version of Middle Class Revolt is also good - far better than the studio version.
