Not that consistancy is the only issue when judging a band. Murmur is so gaddamn good, they could've released utter shit for the next twenty years and so what? They would've still justified their existence.

O.k. (rearranged for correct order and inserting 1st ep and b-side collection)

Chronic Town - 10
Murmur - 10
Reckoning - 9
Fables of the Reconstruction - 6
Life's Rich Pageant - 2
Document - 6 (In principle I am against the band in this direction, but there are a couple hits that are pretty good candy pop on here).
Dead Letter Office - 8
Green - 2
Out of Time - 2
Automatic for the People - 2
Monster - 2
New Adventures in Hi-Fi - 2
Up - 2
Reveal - 2
Around the Sun - 2
Acclerate - 2
Collapse into Now - 2

Total = 71. Walked out of them in 1995 out of boredom after watching SY open for them.

I like "What's the Frequency Kenneth"... it's utter nonsense, but a good tune. Lots of good tunes on Monster. One of my first alt rock albums.
