I've also wondered why nobody's talking about Sumosonic. Personally, I think the album is fantastic and every bit as good as the JBC releases. I can't say which songs I think are the best - I like all of them and think most of them are absolutely great. I hear a lot of similarity in the song writing between JBC and Sumosonic, to me it seems just the presentation is different. "Cat's Life" definitely seems like a JBC song, but the rap section would've seemed out of place. I paid $30 for mine, and it was well worth it.
