I was a bit skeptical of mountains when I first heard it on Xfm, but since being sent it by a friend I've come to really like it. It's just a solid tune.

When I first heard Mountains I wasn't that impressed. I fucking love it now. Perfect example of a song that grows on you.

So am I the only one who immediately thought Mountains was the height of awesome?

Potentially, but the important thing is that we all reached the same conclusion, just took some of us longer

I agree. Mountains is an enormous grower. The Blackened Sky-ish chorus has won me the **** over.

No point, there's not even any new material on there, or B-sides or live tracks. It's just a greatest hits compilation without the material from Puzzle. It's essentially their old label milking their legacy now they're famous.

And Reel Big Fish. Whose response was frankly fantastic. They released a 2-disc long live album with several exlusive tracks and told all their fans not to buy the greatest hits album. And the mastering on the greatest hits sucked anyway.

Oh well, I'm still going to listen to Biffy and I do believe they will continue to be my favourite band.

I saw a live performance of Mountains and it was ****ing great, so I listened to the studio version expecting similar energy, only to find out they've been sucked in to the terrible sea of modern production. There's no life. It's horribly watered down.

^Indeed. Im worried they will slip down my favourite band list. They were undisputed 2nd before Puzzle, but that spot has come up for grabs.

In interviews SImon mentioned that Mountains was the end of Puzzle. Hopefully he is referring musically and not touring(ly?)
Puzzle in my opinion was the right move to create a fan base, but it isn't anywhere near their best compared to vertigo and the others.
What interests me is that a couple of the b-sides i've heard from Puzzle seem fairly similar to thier old. Asexual meat ******* would have stood out in Puzzle like several cats in a suit trying to buy a cheesecake.

I'm pretty sure that's quite an old song, that one. A Headline and Kittens, Cakes & Cuddles are both quite Puuzzle-esque. I heard about the statement from Simon too and I think he probably means music wise, seeing as every album's been different.

My opinion on the video? It's over-the-top, non sensical and is a bit rubbish in my opinion. I wouldn't have expected anything else though, since it's a Biffy video

Asexual Meat ******* is an old song. I dont want another Puzzle, Ive said that before. Hopefully the new singles collection means they can play old stuff with everyone singing along.

I agree with Mountains being a pure grower, and hopefully a new direction will be sought on the next album, for which I cannot frikkin wait!
