Also the title track isn't a staple, Unchallenged Hate is
Now that you mention it, I saw them play Lucid Fairytale and Social Sterility in 2011.

Actually they have been playing FETO pretty regularly.

They only played Unchallenged Hate and Practice What You Preach on the headline tour last fall, but honestly I'd rather they not play much from those albums. The songs aren't nearly as good with Barney's vocals and Danny's sloppy/overtriggered drumming

Mass Appeal Madness EP
Released in early 1991
Label: Earache

Line-up:
Unchanged but Mick Harris is credited with “backing vocals”

1. Mass Appeal Madness
2. Pride Assassin
3. Unchallenged Hate (different version)
4. Social Sterility (different version)

This is a really good EP. They still have the primal death metal thing going on but the songs are a lot faster and shorter. Less is more. It also has two songs rerecorded from From Enslavement to Obliteration with Barney on vocals, which is awesome. And the surprising breakdown halfway through Unchallenged Hate, with Mick Harris singing in what sounds like a garbage can, is even more awesome. It’s not uncommon to hear them play any of the songs off this EP live to this day. It marks the final appearance of the last member of the band who was on Scum; drummer Mick Harris, who wasn’t even an original member of the band.
Best Song: Unchallenged Hate

Death by Manipulation
Released on August 19th, 1991
Label: Relativity/Earache

Line up:
Varies

1. Mass Appeal Madness (from the Mass Appeal Madness EP)
2. Pride Assassin (from the Mass Appeal Madness EP)
3. Unchallenged Hate (different version, from the Mass Appeal Madness EP)
4. Social Sterility (different version, from the Mass Appeal Madness EP)
5. Suffer the Children (from the Suffer the Children single)
6. Siege of Power (different version, from the Suffer the Children single)
7. Harmony Corruption (from the Suffer the Children single)
8. Rise Above (from the Mentally Murdered EP)
9. The Missing Link (from the Mentally Murdered EP)
10. Mentally Murdered (different version, from the Mentally Murdered EP)
11. Walls of Confinement (from the Mentally Murdered EP)
12. Cause and Effect (from the Mentally Murdered EP)
13. No Mental Effort (from the Mentally Murdered EP)
14. Multinational Corporations Pt. 2 (from a split with S.O.B.)
15. Re-address the Problem (from a split with S.O.B.)
16. Changing Colours (from a split with S.O.B.)
17. From the Ashes (from a split with S.O.B.)
18. Understanding (from a split with S.O.B.)
19. Stalemate (from a split with S.O.B.)
20. Unchallenged Hate (live)
21. Mentally Murdered (live)
22. Walls of Confinement (live)

This is a compilation of some of the bands EPs up to this point and some demos and alternate versions of songs. I never even noticed the six songs off the split EP with S.O.B.; I thought I had everything from this comp via the Noise for Music’s Sake comp. I guess I’ll have to find that stuff. It’s good to have this because you can get so much material for one price instead of paying ridiculous prices for multiple CD’s with five or six songs. I thought this comp was rendered pointless by the Noise for Music's Sake comp but I guess I was wrong.

Best Song: Stalemate

EDIT: June 23rd, 2013: I got around to hearing that stuff from the split w/S.O.B. Really good stuff, definitely the best stuff on this compilation. I highly recommend it if you like From Enslavement to Obliteration. At the risk of getting lynched from enslavement to obliteration (haha) I think it's some of the best stuff recorded by the Dorrian line-up. It caused me to change my favorite song from this album.

I was really, really surprised how much I enjoyed this album. What really did it for me is the songs are a lot shorter than any of Napalm Deaths 1990’s output. That’s one problem I have with Harmony Corruption; the songs just drag on for a bit too long. And the same can be said for a lot of their stuff on the later 1990’s albums. But on this album most of the songs are just around the two minute mark, which is perfect. And they almost go back into the grindcore territory of the first two albums. Musically it’s very grindcore. Just with Barneys death vocals. It’s odd that this album came out after Harmony Corruption since it bridges the gap perfectly between that album and the first two grindcore albums. Only the production is much better than any of those albums. One thing that holds this album back, however, is that a lot of the songs just aren’t that memorable. But that goes back to the whole grindcore thing; it’s just a blur. And there are too many samples. Samples and Napalm Death just don’t sound right to me. I’d say that this is probably my favorite of all of Napalm Death’s 1990’s albums.
Favorite Song: the World Keeps Turning

The World Keeps Turning EP
Released in July 1992
Label: Earache

Line-up:
Unchanged

1. The World Keeps Turning
2. A Means to an End
3. Insanity Excursion

There’s not too much to say about this EP. It’s good, it’s short and it opens with a sample, not something you hear on Napalm Deaths music too often. It’s part of the Noise for Music’s Sake compilation so I’d buy that comp before you seek this out on its own,

Best Song: Insanity Excursion

This is a great idea for a thread.

I do have to disagree with your view on Harmony Corruption, however, but if you don't like it, that's cool. This my first ND album, so it has a special place (or something) with me. I think the songs are better than Scum and FETO. Those are good albums, but I like Napalm better when they write songs. With their first two (more so with Scum), it just seemed like they were trying to simply create aggression, and since they cite early Swans as an influence, I totally get it. But, like with Swans, they were better at writing great songs than simply conveying aggression. Also, I just saw the Decibel tour in Chicago, and Suffer the Children got the best reaction (if that means anything).

</rant> Awesome topic, I'm looking forward to the rest of it.
