Add all their stuff up and it's awesome, but every album has something (usually several somethings) that should make Jack and Meg wince.
Just curious what you think the weak spots are on White Blood Cells. "The Union Forever" is my least favorite song on that album, and even that is still pretty cool with its Citizen Kane references.
Bing! That song drives me crazy. I'm also not big on 'Expecting', 'I Can Learn', and maybe 'This Protector'. The rest of the album is pure gold. White Blood Cells probably has the least amount of twaddle on it (next to their debut album).
I think the problem is tracks like 'Fell In Love With A Girl', 'Aluminum' and 'Hotel Yorba' just blow me away so hard, the lesser songs really stand out by comparison.
