If we are talking the re-master, then Jumping Someone Else's Train is the biz.
But althought TIB is a super track, I do really like Another Day.
It has a simply dreamy simple guitar riff that just gets me everytime.

i was just about to say the same.

and if live versions over the years were considered too, i could then say 'fire in cairo', i just don't think the album version is nowhere near the level of the live performances.

so, at the moment i guess i can't vote.

10:15. Three Imaginary Boys. Grinding Halt. Fire In Cairo.

Easily the best 4 tracks on the album. Nothing else is really that good on this release. These tracks stand out and I was lucky enough to see them all played as the final encore set together with 'boys dont cry', jumping someone else's train and 'killing an arab (now sang as killing an other)'.. it was amazing!! must also agree with earlier posts suggesting 3 imaginary boys sounds like it was a preview of things to come and could have easily made it onto seventeen seconds.

Three Imaginary Boys.

A preview of The Cure to come, of my favorite Cure phase.

Grinding Halt for me, followed by Fire In Cairo and It's Not You - all have the neaded energy and simplicity but still kick you. Was really a surprsied when they played Grinding Halt again on the Swing Tour, would be nice if It's Not You would also find its way back into the set from time to time...
difficult album, though I'd loved the idea of the music business back then to not include singles on the album, the punk thing.

"10:15 Saturday Night". Only the title track comes close... But all in all, this debut is indeed a strong album.

10:15 Saturday Night, followed by TIB, Another Day, Fire in Cairo. Underrated album.

01 Grinding Halt (strict dirty punk, no future, no people!)
02 Three Imaginary Boys (gloomy guitar)
03 10:15 Saturday Night (catchy lyrics, meaningful silences)

01 Accuracy (the rhythm, the guitar, a cool song)
02 Jumping Someone Else's Train (from the DeLuxe-Edition, great bass line)
03 Object (once again a bit philosophy)  ;)
