I've recently went back and listened to Tortoise's discography, and I gotta say... TNT is their best, with Millions coming in second. All their other albums made me think, "They should've cut that song," but not those two.

A masterpiece and one which ranks very high in my top ten albums of all time. It feels more like a lifelong friend than it does an album. A stunning collection of work that gives you more with each listen.
