I have a hard time ranking. I love the band and have seen them more than any other act.

If I go with tiers, hold your fire is in the top tier but I can’t put it on a ranking above all else.

What’s great about them is how much money they changed over the years and you can sample different eras. For me, nothing beats the musicianship they displayed on la villa - and that only got better over the years.

Hold your fire is one of my go to albums but so is clockwork angles. Just depends on my mood.

After reading this I think I’ll fire up Presto for my Friday night too.

It has a song that really resonated when Neil passed. Read the lyrics to the title track presto - that’s how i felt when he passed. It’s the only celebrity or musician who passed away where I was rocked. I’ve gotten so much enjoyment from his work over the years that it shook me up. And I wanted to wave my magic wand and make everything all right.

Anyways - HYF is a good one, but there is so much great stuff in the catalogue that for me I can’t rank it as THE top. But the discs i play the most are probably that, signals, moving pictures and clockwork angles. I also play the live material a lot - I think that’s where they truly shined.

I love clockwork angles live as well with the orchestra, that’s very cool. But I wish they did a better job on the sound. The R40 disc and CDs are also just phenomenal. I was really lucky on that tour - I saw their two final hometown shows from the front row as I have a friend who works at the venue and he relocated me.
