I just listened to these back to back & I think Bizarro has the better songs, but the engineering/production/whatev dynamics on Seamonsters are incredible - imo Albini's finest hour.

Nope. Can't do it.

That's odd, Seamonsters doesn't even rate for me. My personal struggle is between Bizarro and Watusi.

lol I don't even like Watusi much. Seamonsters is a, er, monster.

Only one I ever liked at all was George Best.

Yay for "Watusi", their most underrated album!

btw the cinerama albums (especially the last one -- more crunch) were really good fuiud

ha, today's Album of the Day on allmusic is Bizarro with a link review that is very short and only four stars out of their five.

love them both but the engineering on Seamonsters is brutal, and on balance I think the songs are slightly better than Bizarro.

Seamonsters wins!

I always get caught up in Kennedy vs. Take Me as the better What Goes On rip-off. Can't really get past that...
