OK –
Since this a DA or DA related thread-

If you wanted to best relate ALL that DA is –and has been-
(and forever will be !!!!!IMHO)
And you could only give someone unawares
-ONE-
Of the works of the band..

which one would it be?
I have mine in the second half of this post..
But I wanna see if anyone draws the same conclusion.
This ONE work would have to have:

the ROCK AND ROLL- (first and most important!)
the quirkiness
the tenderness
the wincing
the Ideology
the Hipness
the timeless quality
the strangeness
the coolness
the cynicism

and well- embody what DA is trying to tell this world.

Any thoughts?
Discuss.

that piece of criteria I meant to be one that best represents all that the band is.
Motorcycle may be there best recording (I cant argue) but it has none of the quirkiness and other things that represent what DA is as a band..ya know??
I guess that was my point- the variety of style- message - music and all seemed to be all encompassing on OE

Okay, I'll bite. I think Traps Ensnares has quirkiness in its instrumentation. I think that there is quirkiness in the album art. I think that its a good one to give to people if you want to have all those things that you mention plus "accessibility".

I like a couple other DA albums better, but I think its a good representation of the general catalogue, at least over the past 15 years. Most of us likely are thinking Alarma, Doppleg., Vox, as the "definitive" albums (or DFBB, I know, I know).

Darn Floor ~ Big Bite.

The ultimate DA record! Pleased

It has all these:

the ROCK AND ROLL- (first and most important!)
the quirkiness
the tenderness
the wincing
the Ideology
the Hipness
the timeless quality
the strangeness
the coolness

Since the Eddies are apparently in play, I refer back to my original answer:

ZOOM DADDY!

Well obviously the answer is Buechner's Dream
It has every style they've ever done bar the country crap
Darn Floor doesn't quite cut it for this category anyway. Ilove the cd but I hate The Shape Of Air. A very sad end to a very great album. Buechner however has that strange stuff and it also has normal stuff going on.

well - I left the second half of my post at work..
but I am going with Outdoor Elvis.

heres why- Its the quintessintial DA record.

It ROCKS on
------ Driving in England-and a host of others
the quirkiness
------ well- arthur Fardy, Dont Hate Yourself- Coco...
the tenderness
------ Blowin Smoke- Tiny Town
the wincing
------ Hide the Beer
the Ideology
------ Rubber Sky , Mystery Babylon, Urban Legends etc
the Hipness
------ Potential-its STILL a funky dance tune!
the timeless quality
------ This is NOT an 80s record- listen to it!
the strangeness
------- well-OE- PUlpit MAsters etc etc etc
the coolness
------ Cmon- it mentions surfing...TWICE!
the cynicism
------ this record bites HARD on all the church world-it STILL addresses the issues-the world view- pompousness - I mean - the title song alone is an indictment on our obsessive world- has Elvis shrunk since the 80s????and all- yet demonstrates that Love conquers, beatuifully done

and it even has a hymn in Billy Graham - with a guest performer.

I thought Buechner..but OE just has it all-
of course my opinion only.

DFBB is a GREAT record-but it is a bit more limited in scope- and has none of the silliness the Eddies (DA) are known for/

well - thats my pennyworth.

well - as much as I love MBD- and I do!....

except for the extra track at the end..I did not laugh out loud.
the first time I heard Pulpit Masters- or Hide the beer..I nearly peed my pants.

and Zoom Daddy is a great - focused recording..but hey- wheres the funk??

OE is downright all over the map- there is something for everyone on it.

..am I trying to make my case???
