listened to The Pale Emperor again today after a few weeks break from obsessing. after the intro song, it definitely has a stunning brace of tracks. so good it made me think to start a thread.
Deep Six > Third Day of A Seven Day Binge > The Mephistopholes of Los Angeles
it might even run on for four because Warship My Wreck is great too, but four would be asking too much of most mortal albums.
I don't have any other examples or rules, except they have to be songs you're pretty much stunned by. you can't just 'quite like' them.
So, best runs of three songs from albums released this year.
Have at it!
