Ughhh man I honestly don't know, because Ellipsis is so different you know?
I will say that I became a fan when Only Revolutions released (shout out to when Spotify advertised some great unknown-ish music, also how I discovered Kendrick Lamar when GDMC first dropped, before Radio blew him up). I did eventually retrace and visit Puzzle and Blackened Sky, and liked them both, but I think I like their newer direction more personally. That said, I grew to love Opposites. Yeah, it wasn't perfect, but the Deluxe album has some fantastic songs (Modern Magic Formula is still my alarm for when I need to wake up after snoozing too much). I think in comparison, I think Ellipsis was a daring new attempt for them to expand and evolve their sound again, which for them most part worked for me. Animal Style, Wolves of Winter, Howl, Don't Won't Can't, ect. are all great to me. So compared to their discography, I think Ellipsis is a cool new direction of their sound, while still kind of keeping their sound too (I almost think of it as was Queens of the Stone Age do; keep the core fundamentals, but flex their creative side a bit and try the unique and unknown just to see what happens, and I appreciate and love that).
Long ass response, but not many people discuss Biffy
