Question "Deadhead..." The Best Of Devin?

I posted here awhile ago, saying that I had purchased my first Devin Townsend CD, ACCELERATED EVOLUTION, and that I had loved it. And I had mentioned two songs that really impressed me, "Deadhead" and "Away."

Out of those two, I would have to say that "Deadhead" is just an absolute masterwork. And that's not a knock on "Away," it's just that "Deadhead" is that good...

Now, not having heard the other Devin Townsend CD's, I will have to say that this is the best. But I'm sure the good people here at the Devin Townsend boards have heard better. I can't really imagine it, but I'm sure there's another Devin Townsend song that will absolutely floor me. Who knows?

Deadhead has to be my favorite on AE,with suicide and Away close behind.That album is such a masterpiece.

If you want more incredible Dev,then just go out and buy Terria or Infinity RIGHT NOW!!!!!

You can't go wrong.

'Truth' has got to be my favourite Devy track, and my favourite of all time.

Went to a party
I danced all night
I drank 16 beers
And I started up a fight
But now I'm jaded
You're out of luck
I'm rolling down the stairs
Too drunk to fuck


I HATE cars.

Death of Music=Devin's greatest work IMO.

To keep up the trend.

Terria>OM>AE>Infinity>Physcist


Also, to the person who said Truth was there fav Devin song. I always found it odd that it is almost by far my favorite song on Infinity, it's just an amazing track.

Boy...it doesn't look like PHYSICIST makes it high on your lists...

It's not that bad, is it? Or is it just a good CD among remarkable CD's?

Well, that's interesting...

Though OCEAN MACHINE does look tempting...

Physicist is catchy, fun, and enjoyable. I just don't see where it is as deep and layered as his other works. I might be missing something though. It is a very good album, but compared to Ocean Machine or Terria, it just doesn't rank high.

"Deadhead" is an amazing and perfect composition... certainly one of Dev's best.

I would agree with this... though I'm still uncertain about Terria vs. AE... I feel Terria has higher high points... but AE is more consistant.
