FOM or RIL depending on the mood

Also you know why I love the TH? Because sometimes their weakest album True Stories is my favourite TH album

overall I'd say I listen to MSABAF the most, followed by Remain in Light ...

I listen the the first half of TNOTBITH pretty regularly ...

I find Little Creatures to be quite a relaxing listen too, DB's singing (along with Tina and Jerry's harmonies) are lovely throughout ...

Remain in light for me. Seen and not seen and houses in motion are the only 2 that aren't amazing but the creativity in this album is stunning. I love the story that The overload is how they imagined Joy Division would sound like after reading a review of Unknown pleasures. It's hard to belive that they hadn't heard the last song on Unkown pleasures though. Listening wind is v.moving and Once in a lifetime is beyond fantastic esp. Eno's keyboard runs.
The 3 long songs on side one are my fav's though. They don't sound like anything else i've ever heard and seem v.sophisticated and are full of all kinds of ideas but not in a way that makes them sound cluttered up.
Shoulda stuck to using the aeroplane's on the back as the front cover though. :D

Nowhere Man,

The keyboards on "Once In A lifetime" are played by Jerry, not Eno. Who told you otherwise?

Remain in Light is their best, IMO. But Speaking in Tongues is my favourite to listen to :jumpyjumpy:
