One thing: " It'd be better than Goat if it didn't drag so bad in the middle." When does it drag?? Monkey Trick is one of the best tracks on the album (And the band in general if you ask me), Karpis also. I can sort of see why would someone think that of Seasick, but still.
Also my rankingz: Goat > Head > Liar > Shot > Down > Pure > Lash > S/t EP >>>>> Blue - Shame they didn't go out from the studio with a bang but they made enough Goat (haha getit) albums and insane live performances so I don't care
It'd be better than Goat if it didn't drag so bad in the middle." it don't drag at all; They're both excellent albums to listen throughout, however "Liar" (as you said) is slightly better individual-song wise.
