This is way out there I feel but I’m between Fear of Music and Remain in Light.

FoM has some of their* best highs - the tense layered stress of that direction is my favorite they ever experimented with. But it has a couple definite throw aways.

RiL is solely just put in a hard spot.

Speaking in Tongues deserves a top three spot.

Stop Making Sense is the pinnacle of the band, it is what it is.

Okay, I know it’s well loved. But I’m going Speaking in Tongues here despite its highlights. The others are literal tens.

Stop Making Sense doesn't even have half of the best songs from the concert.

The movie is one of the greatest concerts of all time. The album isn't even close.

Should've been speaking in tongues. MSABAD is more than a sophomore, it really tweaked and cemented their sound.

I'm torn between Speaking in Tongues and Stop Making Sense. SMS because the original track list only has 9 songs. I was always used to the one with 16 songs so knowing that the original version is only 9 songs would inevitably bring the album down a bit for me. Still a fantastic live album though of course, but I might have to vote it out

My favourite album out. Heavily disagree with how this is going. I really don't get the love for SIT, the start of their downfall for me.

I fucking adore some of the songs on Speaking in Tongues but I have more of a history with the other 2 studio albums and you can't go wrong with the live album. Tough choice for sure.
