I really like the one on the last album but I also really love the Stealth version of Motorcycle (and I'd say that was one of my all time favourite songs). Although I don't know any of the ones not on albums

One of my favourite too. When I listen to RTF I always start from Manorbier.

Isn't that a pretty short album then?

Manorbier isn't bad, but I still stand by my original vote, Horses Under Starlight.

You Know it's going to hurt is my favourite. Have they ever commented on what it's about ? I also love Manobier and think it's positioned perfectly on the album .

You Know It's Going To Hurt is just fantastic. One of my favourite SATT era tracks.

Manorbier is the strongest track on the new album imo. Close second.

Love Manorbier especially for James' vocalisations that sound suspiciously like they've come off a Runrig record!

It is, indeed, and it's exactly the time it takes for me to go to work. Two songs, that's all, so I start from my favourite one.

Manorbier pushes it close, but I'm gonna stick with The Vorticists

Manobier - all the others could benefit from lyrics especially Ostpolitik - it seems like it's an instrumental version of a track.
I'm not really a fan of instrumentals tbh - I think any of their songs without lyrics could be as good as the instrumentals they've done and don't really see what all the fuss is about them!

Manorbier annoyed me, it's their worst instrumental and they were doing so fantastically at them.

In 2014, at this moment, Ostopolitik is my favourite.
