I was gonna spend a lot of time on this, but too much Covid 19 on the brain.

Feel free to trash this, refute it, improve it, make it the best thing ever.

I was gonna try to upload my color coded chart, but couldn't figure out how.

IC, HC, BTE all have 12 songs. Is there a classification system we can come up for them, particularly across the three albums?

=================================================================

The radio friendly hit - Greens and Blues, Classic Masher, Long Rider

The screamy song - Blue Eyed Hexe, Baal's Back, St. Nazaire

The poignant semi-religious / spiritual one - Andro Queen, All the Saints, Daniel Boone (or Death Horizon maybe)

The history lesson - Jamie Bravo, Head Carrier, Mrs. Mark of Cain

The easy listening song - Ring the Bell, Plaster of Paris, Bird of Prey

The tragic lost love song - Indie Cindy, All I Think About Now, Ready for Love

The straight up rock song - What Goes Boom, Um Chagga Lagga, On Graveyard Hill

The loud quiet loud formula - Bagboy, Oona, Silver Bullet

Completely arbitrary first attempt.

I'm not necessarily saying FBF picks from various categories like ingredients for a soup, but at the same time none of the albums all have one unified sound obviously. Curious if he's like, "ok, we need a soft song here, a loud song here" etc. Or the producers. Etc. Whatever. Back to you guys.

I'd be all over a Config Management attempt - by my reckoning we're on Pixies v2.1 or 2.2 - depending if the Dubs incarnation counts.

I reckon you could do taxonomy by colour - these are blue songs, these are green etc. Lots of themes in there.
