I'm Not Working's soul evaporated and Socialist Serenade was a dream stretched too far.

I think I know the direction the B-side survivor is heading.

Incidentally, I consider Masses to belong to the KYE era.

Your rules WhatsAManic, but I would put Masses in KYE era too.
Eh, can see why it'd be included with either seeing as it was released bang in the middle of both albums and wouldn't particularly fit on either.

Absolutely fucking love Be Natural, me favourite on the album these days. Just stuck the album on, been a while. Love it.

Montana/Autumn/78 and Prologue To History (naturally) are two of the band's absolute finest b-sides of all time, so I really hope that Black Holes For The Young (which isn't) bites it.

Yet people persist in voting contrary to my wishes.

I see your point, but it fits very clearly thematically, musically and aesthetically into the KYE era. Masses was also included on the Japanese and Australian editions of KYE.

It even had a stylised Cuban flag as the single cover.

It's a tie between Montana/Autumn/78 and Black Holes For The Young at the moment.

I am hoping against hope that WhatsAManic will use her/his casting vote to save the second-greatest b-side of them all, so that it can go on to lose against the greatest b-side of them all (Prologue To History).

So many tracks wish they were Montana and Prologue. That huge sprawling night sky of a riff...

But there can be only two.

EDIT: Not that I am massively invested in this or anything, but casual readers of this thread may wish to examine exhibit A in all its hyperactive glory here: Montana/Autumn/78, and having gazed into such wonder, compare it to this. Yes, I like Black Holes For The Young. But it is no Montana/Autumn/78.

Get voting!

yeah... it's pretty tough now. And very close it was too, with one vote at the last minute. Born a Girl is twisting and changing in a fragile body.

And goodbye to Black Holes for the Young as it's the final day of the B-sides!
And it's the two Tolerate classics, Prologue to History and Montana/Autumn/78.

Impossible to pick now. That 9 song album is just about perfect for that era.

This is the way the world should be.

Prologue To History and Montana/Autumn/78 are for me the two best songs of this era.

But Montana/Autumn/78 graciously steps aside, applauding, tear-wet with pride, as Prologue To History rightfully ascends the podium. Camera flashes catch the bouquets and medals.

It's a beautiful scene. There are no losers here.

You're Tender and You're Tired forgot about its life, it drifted away and died, it never said goodbye.

And on the final day of the B-side survivor Prologue to History has won itself... a new Dyson!

AARGH! Happy it was down to the last two in the b-side, but Montana/Autumn/'78 at least has the musical edge over Prologue...!
