Maybe a little early to bump this, but I'm interested in the early take of where 'No Geography' ranks among everyones list so far.

Haha, coincidentally, there's YT-guy who had the same idea the other day
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

I'll bite (geddit  ;))

1. Come With Us / Surrender
[ 3. Brother's Gonna Work It Out - if we're including that beast]
3. No Geography
4. Dig Your Own Hole
5. Further
6. We Are The Night
7. Exit Planet Dust
8. Push The Button
9. Born in the Echoes

This actually changed a little since the last time I ranked. Obviously with the addition of No Geography but also, EPD has been rocking my ear drums lately to much more success than I originally (naively) gave it credit.
Recency bias puts No Geography higher than it may end up. But with the supporting tour, and the overall magic around the release - it's up there for sure.

Gods:

1. Come With Us
2. Dig Your Own Hole

Royalty:

3. Further
4. Surrender
5. Born In The Echoes
6. Exit Planet Dust

Royal Bastard:

7. No Geography

Knight:

8. Push The Button

Jester:

9. We Are the Night.


3-6 will always fluctuate. However, it typically will be headlined by 'Further' simply because K+D+B is godlike. 'Surrender' got a slight bump from my previous list based on the fact I've been listening to it a lot lately (especially because of the rumored news).


'No Geography' is stuck in limbo for me. It sounds good, it feels good, but it just hasn't left a significant impression on me. I mostly have a positive reaction towards all the tracks; maybe it's the track arrangement that is throwing me off.

I will say, 'Got To Keep On' is not a favorite of mine. With it being followed up by 'Gravity Drops' (which I find interesting on it's own, despite its criticism) is a bit of a long gap in the album that breaks the momentum for me.

Fortunarely, I could never rank them and I won't probably ever be able to. All of them bring something to the table and put a puzzle piece to the whole picture. I don't wanna miss a single one of them.

So the Chems retweeted this on 1st June but the results were already in on 29th of May?

Well, it's a slightly larger voter base than the forum  - over 2000 people voted. So I guess it has some merit.   Results.
I wouldn't have No 4 that high, but other than that, the order is acceptable I think.
DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.
