Ok, I'll bite.
Temple of Low men
Song for song, the strongest of them all IMHO. This was also the first and only one I had for a while, so it was in heavy rotation and I never minded hearing it again. A unique trip with grittyness and sublime rapture.
Very strong and would have been first but doesn’t hold up song for song as TOLM to me. No doubt it contains some very powerful numbers among Neil’s best works.
This is my favorite to sing along with, thanks to all the Tim harmonies. And I’ll happily sing Neil’s parts, too. But there are a few songs which I never really took to, and they tend to get skipped as I consider them novelties. I’m still here, notwithstanding.
Time on Earth
Fresh and meaningful expressions shared on compact disc. A few really good gems on an album which tends to run on like a director’s cut of a movie I already enjoy.
So many great moments. The telephone ring, for example. It does sound a bit dated, but the exuberance and new sound can still carry on.
A shorter collection which brought us yanks another tour, always a bonus. It just doesn’t seem as if they were trying as hard. Although when it was new I was loving every track as an earnest fan would. I also had personal things going on at this time so it’s lost some luster there. Still, better than most of the stuff on the radio (duh).
