Your opinion?
I always thought Microscopic view was the best. Some amazing riffs,almost thrash crossover esque vocals and just an all around good performance. Honestly,I nearly consider it an Avant Garde metal release with all the experimentation for the band.

Stop the Bleeding, but the first 3 were all pretty good. the rest is complete suckage imo.

I guess I'm pretty biased since the only one I know is Psycho Surgery....

I like P.O.D. the best, but like MC said, the first 3 are great.

I'm odd duck, I pick Microscopic View which was my very first Tourniquet album. I'd say Stop The Bleeding would be second and, another pick that makes me an odd duck, Crawl To China is third. Microscopic and Crawl To China where some of my very first Christian metal CDs when I became a Christian (I had some before my conversion).

Psycho Surgery.

It's their only album that I like all the way through. Also the song "A Dog's Breakfast" reminds me of Exodus.

I don't think I can choose a favorite. Of the first 2 I like STB slightly more.
P.O.D. still shreds the crap outta my brain (and carpul tunnel from the air drums). V.Lessons is one great heavy metal album but at first I didnt like the direction they went so it took a couple years to grow on me, same as C2C.
"Microscopic View" is just spectacular from start to finish from a thrash point of view but as 11 years have passed by, it doesnt seem to hold up as well song to song in my opinion. It is still awesome, just not as memorable as the early stuff.
I listened to "Moth & Rust" the other day for the first time in about 2 years and it is such a great album, a bit less speedy and more doomy but the guitar melodies that Ted rips off are so heavy and melodic. If that would've been their last album, it was a good way to go out. Can't wait to hear the new stuff.

Exactly my thoughts. Vanishing Lessons was okay for me, but I struggled with the next 3 albums.

I like most of their catalogue, but Stop The Bleeding is an all-time favorite and easily my favorite Tourniquet.

The first three are excellent. I also think Vanishing Lessons is really good. Acid Head is great!

This is tough for me. I really like a lot of Tourniquet's stuff. The first three are phenomenal. I also really like Where Moth and Rust Destroy. And over the years I've come to the opinion that Crawl to China is a brilliant album too.

I think Microscopic View isn't that great, and I feel the same way about Vanishing Lessons.

Not the biggest fan, the first 3 are pretty good though. If I had to choose it would be POD.

Pathogenic, NO CONTEST!! The first 3 are brilliant, VL is very good also. I like crawl because it is Tourniquet for when the mood gets mellow and the song writing is fantastic. Microscopic is not so hot and Where Moth and Rust Destroy is growing on me, albeit slowly, but growing non-the-less.

I only have heard two by them. PSYCHO SURGERY and WHERE MOTH AND RUST DESTROY. So, I went with PS.

Psychosurgery slightly over POD - I love them both.

We shouldn't forget The Collected Works as well. It had 2 new awesome songs on it that were better than the whole Crawl to China album.

If we set aside the fact that Crawl to China isn't thrash and therefore is not what you'd expect from Tourniquet (but then again, nor was Vanishing Lessons), what is there not to like about it? I think that Crawl to China is pretty excellent, actually. I think the songs are more well written than on Microscopic View, actually.

Great songs on that album! And you're right, I think most people don't give it a fair shake is because it was a turn away from thrash (even moreso than Vanishing Lessons) and was an attempt at changing with the times (which is a valid argument against, but after these years the music should be more appreciated).
