Yeah well, I guess it would be pretty self-explnatory, that since you would 
think my least favourite compilation consists of better songs than your own, 
just as I think yours consist of better songs than mine do.
Originally I didn't like Dust that much either, but lately I like it more 
and more, it's so great - phew, that organ! I can understand why people are 
put of by Naked Flame, and it isn't a favourite of mine either, but still 
pretty nice. And I love Someone Else To Blame (Gifford is very underrated), 
Bushfire and Sell My Soul (especially the unplugged version). I agree that 
the SIB version of Burnie is better than the original one, but it's still a 
mighty song.
Who Can Stand In The Way and Pictures aren't favourites of mine either, but 
they are great songs, I couldn't get myself to vote on the first because of 
the "Precious moments precious few, when the dollar's more than me and you, 
it's a joy of forgetting..." etc. I love that part, and the one with Jesus 
And Antartica is one of my fave songs, I love the strings, such a mood! 
Knife's Edge and Concrete are good too, so that IS a mighty compilation 

Funnily, then D&D, BSM and E&S&M was the albums I had easiet on chosing a 
least favourite (alongside Breathe). For me the debut, Head Injuries and 
PWAP was the hardest ones. I really do love Powderworks, I just love the 
others more....
