Rank The Albums: Rise Against
 
I know this is more of Every Time I Ty's territory, but I'm curious what this site thinks about this band's stuff, as I don't see much about them.

1. Siren Song of the Counter Culture
2. The Sufferer & The Witness
3. Revolutions Per Minute
4. The Unraveling
5. Endgame
6. Appeal To Reason

Even though Revolutions Per Minute has some of my favorite songs, I think TSATW is a better overall album. Siren Song is near fucking perfect.

To change things up a little too, I'm going to include my top five favorite songs, you don't have to, but feel free.

1. Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
2. Black Masks & Gasoline
3. Survive
4. Bricks
5. Dead Ringer or Heaven Knows (I can't decide)

The Unraveling probably isn't the objective second-best, but it's my second-favourite. Sufferer is definitely the first... of... both... grammar?

Absolutely this.

it's hard to pick favourite songs, but I'll give it a try:

1. Paper Wings
2. Survive
3. To Them These Streets Belong
4. But Tonight We Dance
5. Injection

Mine is the same as the one in the OP, but I haven't listened to all of Endgame.

PeeDster 01/08/13 06:39 AM

1. The Sufferer & The Witness
2. Revolutions Per Minute
3. Siren Song Of The Counter Culture
4. The Unraveling
5. Endgame
6. Appeal To Reason

Siren Song should be number one on everyone's lists... aside from that I have a hard time ranking them, but I like their older stuff more than the new stuff

I'm probably with the OP as far as ranking the albums


Paper Wings is by far my favorite song from them though

1. Siren Song of the Counter Culture
2. The Sufferer & The Witness
3. Revolutions Per Minute
4. Appeal To Reason
5. The Unraveling (not that i dislike it, its follow ups are just so much better)
6. Endgame (big step down)

1. Revolutions Per Minute (cannot accept any other answer)
2. Siren Song of the Counter Culture
3. The Unraveling
4. The Sufferer & the Witness
5. Appeal to Reason
6. Endgame

1. Siren Song of the Counter Culture
2. Sufferer and the Witness
3. Revolutions per Minute
4. Endgame
5. The Unraveling
6. Appeal to Reason

Anyone who thinks Appeal to Reason is better than Endgame is surely considering only its strongest tracks, not the record as a whole. Endgame is far more cohesive and consistent, whilst ATR has four-five great songs and the rest are amongst their worst. Those two and The Unraveling are far below the top three though.

Songs would include:
1. Savior
... and in no particular order
Black Masks and Gasoline
Blood to Bleed
Dancing For Rain
Rumors of my Demise
Prayer of the Refugee
This is Letting Go
Others I forgot
