Hmm weird, I thought 'Killing Time' was their best album musically. Shudder is probably my least favorite.
Self Titled > Killing Time > Walking Wounded > Sirens & Condolences > Shudder
Any new Bayside makes me super happy though. Such a great band.
I'm with you that the self-titled is their best. Don't Call Me Peanut is my favorite song of all time and that album affected me heavily back when I first listened to it. I even have a Bayside tattoo on my arm.
I just could not and still can't get into Killing Time. Already Gone is just eh. I don't like Sick Sick Sick save for the chorus. Mona Lisa is probably the worst Bayside song I've ever heard. The title track isn't too bad, I know most people love it. I'm just not the biggest fan of Anthony's new style of singing either.
For me, I'd go:
Bayside > The Walking Wounded > Sirens and Condolences > Shudder > Killing Time
This new song sounds pretty promising though.
