    Just for fun, I wanted to predict where Voyager will land in my rankings and was curious to see you guys' predictions as well.

    Here goes:

    1. Grassroots
    2. Transistor
    3. Soundsystem
    4. Stereolithic
    5. 311
    6. From Chaos
    7. Music
    8. Mosaic
    9. Voyager
    10. Universal Pulse
    11. Evolver
    12. Uplifter
    13. Don't Tread On Me

    While I don't think Mosaic is anywhere near their best, I don't think they will be able to top it with Voyager.

    Not sure, but I don't think it will be as good as Mosaic or Stereolithic.

    12. Uplifter
    13. Dont Tread on Me

    Mid tier. It has no chance of surpassing any of the albums from Grassroots through From Chaos. It will probably be behind Stereolithic and Mosaic as well. So I'll say 8th best above Evolver.

    Good Feeling better be the dud of the album.

    I'm guessing high, based on Xfire and DYW, especially back to back.

    But my list prob goes:

    Grassroots
    Soundsystem
    Mosaic
    From Chaos
    Blue
    Transistor
    Music
    Evolver
    Stereolithic
    Uplifter
    UP
    DTOM

    That said, Grassroots is the only 311 album I've listened to in sequence in years. Even Mosaic, I only listened to it front-to-back a couple times.

    No idea. I have hope in Scotch so I think it will be above DTOM/Uplifter/UP but probably no higher than Mosaic. In order for it to be high, basically Good Feeling has to be the only shitty song and the rest of the ones we haven't heard have to be great. Crossfire already puts a bad taste in my mouth because of the controversy, despite that I like it, and that doesn't help Voyager's sake in the rankings.

    I'll predict:

    1. Transistor
    2. Blue
    3. Stereolithic
    4. Soundsystem
    5. Grassroots
    6. From Chaos
    7. Mosaic
    8. Music
    *9. Voyager
    10. Evolver
    11. UP
    12. DTOM
    13. Uplifter

    I haven't really thought of how it's going to rank, but I am predicting it will be a weird album.

    There are multiple Feldmann songs we still haven't heard.....so there's that.

    From what I see so far, I think “Good Feeling” is better than Turtles and Titty Cough, but also I think “Don’t You Worry” and “Crossfire “ are worse than all the Scotch Mosaic songs. If GF is Voyagers worse song (I hope it is) it will prob fall under at 6(behind Grassroots and the other Scotch albums). I do hope we have surprises on this album though. If we have worse stinkers than GF, it will prob be just above the three stooges (Dtom, Uplifturd, UP)

    I feel like it will be really hard to rate, just like Mosaic is. I think if Mosaic was just the Scotch 12 it'd be top tier, but Feldy's garbage makes it a confusing experience.

    I know music is subjective and all, but why do you hate Blue? Below UP and Uplifter is kind of crazy to me. You're my boy blue.

    I don't hate blue. I don't even hate DTOM. The only albums that I find myself seeking out anymore though are the first 4 on my list. And Archive, I fucking love Archive.

    I'm confused as to why Music is subjective and Blue is not.

    It's amusing how cult-like certain people in this BB are. If you don't have Grassroots, Blue, Transistor, Soundsystem in your top 4 and DTOM, Uplifter, UP in your bottom 3 you're immediately called out for it as though you've just offended someone's belief system.

    Its a strange list to me, but as I said in my post music is subjective and you're entitled to like whatever you want.

    I figured you would get that I was joking since I threw in the old school quote.

    I'm predicting bottom of the middle tier or top of the bottom tier.

    I think he meant music in general is subjective...not the album “Music”. Haha. I think he was generally asking why a person wouldn’t rank blue towards the top just because that’s commonly a top pick. No insult intended.

    Anyway, I don’t really have a definitive ranking for albums but I see this being a steady decline from Stereolithic to MOSAIC to Voyager. Although I have no idea how to gauge what the overall sound of the album will be. I was honestly pumped about this album when I first heard “Crossfire” and the real mix of “Don’t You Worry” back to back but that obviously got derailed fairly quickly.

    All in all, if this ends up beating out MOSAIC in my personal rankings, I’ll consider it a win.
