If Bona Fide were recorded with the same song selection as a studio release, I think it might have had a shot in my eyes, but as is, it\'s gotta be Deuce.

^^^Yeah, I like the jazziness of Psychedelic Breakfast. All those ser instrumentals and moments of pure bliss. It\'s def a close call between Psychie-B and II but i\'m goin wit the old school.

this is actually really hard for me. it\'s a toss up between pb, deuce and moxie. Think I need to give them all a listen through. Normally I\'d agree with dave, but I put pb on a few months ago and LOVED it begining to end, and there is so much good writting on m.e. hmmm...

Moxie all the way.
I think what I like best is how good it sounds 1st listen. It should have brought in way more new fans than it did.  The transition timing really hurt what I feel was such a well polished effort from the band.  

It\'s funny amazon is selling Billy Breathes in this thread.  I think of that album the same way. When it came out people where still talking about Rift and Junta songs as top notch, and I think it took a while for people to come around to how much more mature and sophisticated an album it was.

I only own Psychedelic Breakfast (thanks to an .info download a while ago) and Moxie Epoxy. :duck:

Gotta go with Moxie Epoxy. I listened to this album a ton when I bought it last year and still come back to it frequently. Very happy to have seen it in its entirety in Northampton.

wow. i would say the exact opposite.

i\'d probably go with moxie epoxy if it didn\'t sound like balls. i think deuce sounds MUCH better.
