Then, after we've talked it to death, we turn it over to you to decide once and for all via a handy poll. Cast your vote on our Facebook page and let's celebrate unsung classics.

After doing something new and splitting dear Tori Amos into two parts, we decided that we’d do another new thing. It just so happens that this new thing coincides with the 20th anniversary of …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s second album ‘Madonna’.

So to celebrate this occasion Chris decided that we should do a head to head between ‘Madonna’ and ‘Source Tags & Codes’. Weaver dutifully agreed, initially vowing to take the corner of ‘Madonna’ whilst Christ decided to fight the case of ‘Source Tags & Codes’.

However, as the week of recording approached, it seemed that the boys had decided that they would switch albums because each had grown fond of the other’s record. So the result is Weaver arguing for ‘Source Tags & Codes’ and Chris is arguing for ‘Madonna’.

Which of these is the best Trail of Dead album? Well, that’s totally up to you.
