I never would have thought to see some of the songs listed in these replies.
Here goes mine:

The Missing Wife
Sing Me to Sleep
The Sky (Alpha) (A)
The Dirt (Alpha) (N)
The Fear of God
Dear Music
Sex With Strangers

The only ones I found easy to pick were from A/N.

I initially didn't like dear music, but I gradually warmed its way to probably being somewhere in my top 3 off that album and sex with strangers is super raw.

Sing Me to Sleep is jarring for the first 5 seconds or so, because it comes right after Oh! Emetophobia, so I can kind of understand that. But it seemed like you picked the mostly slower songs untill Sex With Strangers. I thought everone loved Sex With Strangers.

Awkward double meaning intended.

sex with strangers is awesome. the song. and i agree about sing me to sleep; being that it follows one of their best songs it seems extra ehhhhish. but as a standalone song it's pretty good. especially the latter half of it.

I love Sex With Strangers, but if I had to choose my least favorite song on Cancer, that would be it.
The same goes for Sing Me to Sleep and The Missing Wife, I love the songs, but if I had to choose a least favorite on the albums, those would have to be it.
The Fear of God I love lyrically, but I'm not a fan of the drumming on the track.
And for the A/N songs there's very little substance for those outside of the lyrics if we're taking them as stand alone tracks. If they were outside of the context of the A/N story, I'd be skipping them constantly.

The Dirt(N) is an amazing song. The lyrics are awesome, and I listen to it outside of the story all the time. I will admit it is pretty hard to hear the lyrics at times (Pretty sure thats intended) but other than that it is so amazing.

I like never an oceanographer on talens better. I would like the demo that's in the exclusives best if it wasn't for the way josh sings on it.

This.
Again, it's not the lyrics, it was the substance of it on the album. It was meant to be a part of the story and not a stand alone song and it shows musically on that one. But when played under Never an Oceanographer, I feel the song is more in its natural state and I feel it has more substance.

Yup. That quite literally sums up the studio DVD from WCKI that people payed extra money for.

I think there's tabs on ultimateguitar.com its hard to properly give chords since its mostly on two strings and goes through a lot of variations on 3 basic chords.

It feels more TFOG to me than Nihilism or Pre-Nihilism.
