Everyone says Highly Evolved was their one and only peak, but honestly I think Winning Days is their masterpiece. I've often wondered why that album didn't make the band superstars, but maybe Craig Nicholls' behavior kinda undid their appeal for a lot of people. Also, maybe its polarized running order, inspired by the vinyl side 1/side 2 aesthetic was a turn-off for some.
Vision Valley and what I've heard off Melodia and Future Primitive has been cool, but ultimately it doesn't quite match up to their first two. The biggest problem I have is their songs have often followed a formula of starting off good, then getting awesome, then just ending.
