Two tracks each from their first two albums, which I actually prefer to their later material;  which is your favorite of the following?

Amygdala:


Nine Funerals of the Citizen King:


Half Asleep; Half Awake:


Ruins:

Great poll - nice to see some RIO in the polls!

Between Amygdala and Ruins for me - I think Ruins just pips it!

It's a small herd, yes.  A large herd would start at something like 6 songs, I'd guess.

When the poll is done maybe you can show it in graphic form.  You know, maybe with a cow pie chart.
