    Should be interesting to see what folks choose for their “best of” CDs. Guidelines: 2 tracks from each album + 2 special edition/bonus tracks. 14 tracks total. This was kinda tough. Have fun.
    Here’s mine:

    1. Son
    2. Theory of the Crows
    3. Cardinal Song
    4. Murder Me Rachael
    5. All the Wine
    6. Abel
    7. Fake Empire
    8. Apartment Story
    9. Afraid of Everyone
    10. England
    11. This Is the Last Time
    12. Graceless
    13. Secret Meeting (Remix)
    14. About Today (Live)

    I have all the albums and the Cherry Tree EP, but I don’t have Virginia EP. I have the Black and White Sessions, but not Virginia lol… I need to pick that damn thing up already.

    Some of these choices were pretty tough, but overall I like my picks. Daughters of the Soho Riots was an edgy choice, but I like it. Glad I’m not the only one who’s picked Cardinal Song as well.

    Tough choices all the way through. If I could bend the rules a little, I’d be tempted to sub in the Daytrotter Sessions version of Gospel for Slow Show.

    This is impossible. Can’t only pick 2 from Alligator and don’t want any from SSFDL.
