Confusion Is Sex. Dirty has great songs but as a whole it doesn't impress me as much. Confusion is Sex is badass.

I guess my opinion is the same as yours.. Dirty has got great songs, and I really like the production..it's powerful and it rocks.. but Confusion Is Sex is something with some sort of ambience in it, a better album overall..

this was the hardest choice for me, but Confusion is just a monolith

and a ques to demonrail, for future rounds if CIS wins, do you consider the reissue version with Kill yr Idols tacked on or the original 9 track LP?, this could be a question that sways some, i voted here based on the 9 tracks alone which made it that much harder, the addition of the EP tracks just improves it's votes

where does the judge stand?

I suppose it's fairer to stick with just the original, minus Kill yr Idols.

Dirty is a decent alternative rock album. Confusion is the sound of bells ringing in the collective heads of American society.
