Sick of Waiting Tables is my favorite. But you can't go wrong with any of them. I get confused between them easily though. Like there's a Sick of Waging War, and I think a Known Unsoldier...or that's the same. And then there's like Sickly Business, and Still Sickly or something....I don't know. I'm trying not to buy the same album twice.

The Road Tested is awesome. Dead Poet Live Album has been replaced.

They are the same futuristxen.

I like sick of waging war, but a friend I lent the cd to fucked it up...so some of the tracks don't work on it anymore...like embarrassed, which is probably the best track on the compilation.

My favorite though is sick of waiting tables. that one has awesome tracks.

Sick of Waging war will always be my favorite, for me a really solid sequel to Personal Journals - great tracks like Narcissist, Come Come Now, Makeshift Patriot, Mermaids are Sea-sluts, etc.

Sickyl Business comes a close second, Stuck, Garden Gnomes, My Head are all amazing Sage tracks and the guest spots are awesome (Jared's Jesus in a Bowl of Germs, Bernard's piece, the George McKibben piece, etc).

Eh? Are you talking STILL Sickly Business, or the original? I don't see any Bernard track on my original Sickly Business...

Thanks Scottie.

Stumbleweed - I meant just what I said. The second track on Sickly Business is Bernard's.

Huh -- I never knew that. I expected to hear poetry or something, I guess. Didn't think that Mr. Robotic Voice/"good year for the war buffs" was something that Bernard put together.

Learn something every day.

Go with "still sickly business", it does an excellent job summing up the best parts. Its all meat, no filler.

I own the whole sick of series and end up skipping the freestyles. No matter how dope a freestyle is I can't see listening to it more than a handful of times.

I usually push Waging War above the others but as much as I think about it I can't really hold one of the current three above another. I'm really proud of all 3.

Naw I disagree here. The "filler" is a lot of the charm of the whole sick business. Like what is the filler on Urine Trouble or Waiting Tables, y'know? In it's own way, each piece is gold.

To me the freestyles are the filler. Do you always listen to the whole thing through without skipping those? I love still sick, brings back a lot of fond memories and an exciting time (for me) in hip hop, but I almost always skip the freestyles.
