I was wondering why Intriguer is often ranked so low, as well as Time on Earth? These were released before I knew of the band. Thanks!
I can’t speak for others, but Intriguer was a “what might have been” album for me. The songs tested on the tour prior to Intriguer suggested a different album. I connected to those songs and was disappointed when Intriguer was released, when those songs either morphed or were not included on the album. In retrospect, it was not fair to the group. Not surprisingly, the Deluxe Edition’s second disc of Intriguer is my favorite of all the Deluxe Editions.
