The hate is definitely overrated, but I just mean that because it was such a huge departure from their early sound I think people went back and realized that SFAFC wasn't quite as drastic as they initially thought. Maybe?
It's a possibility. There are definitely a few songs on SFAFC that would fit on Eternal Cowboy pretty well.

Personally, I've never been able to appreciate Axl Rose nearly as much as a lot of AM! fans. There's a lot of reasons for that. To be honest, I just wasn't a huge fan of a lot of Tom's vocal stylings back then (example: I had to get into the live 2006 version of "We Laugh at Danger" before I got into the studio version). And there are a few songs on that album that I just wouldn't consider good. Like The Politics of Starving. I've never considered that song good at all.

Also, Chris-It-X's hilarious comments about wanting to sing early Against Me! songs while smashing the state brought down my enjoyment of that record significantly.

Holy shit, yeah, I hate "The Politics of Starving" a little bit.

But yeah, Axl Rose definitely takes itself a bit too seriously at times, but I love the aggression and "Pints of Guinness..." is just such a killer song that I can forget about a lot of its flaws. I also think it's more satisfying than Eternal Cowboy just because I believe the latter is too short.

New Wave is ranked so high purely for nostalgia. If I were ranking them in terms of what is technically better, I would switch White Crosses and New Wave. For some reason I couldn't get into White Crosses as much, but that might change with time. And a new record. It's almost like I'm behind when it comes to AM!

Out of curiosity, what do you think is the best single?

how anyone has New Wave anything other than last boggles my mind. Especially if you put Axel Rose below it.

Single as in unique track? Gotta be Cliche Guevara. That or Miami.

Single as in promotional single? Cavalier Eternal.

Well, what was the first AM! album you really got into? Because that really dictates how you would've approached New Wave.
