Deserter's Songs is still brilliant.
  • i do prefer the earlier stuff, but too many people claiming that everything post-Baker is tooootally like the worstest shit EVAH, including Deserter's Songs ffs. See You On The Other Side is probably their best album anyway.
  • BOCES.
  • they are both great
  • Mercury Rev > The Flaming Lips [2]
