honestly, trying to look at the albums as objectively as possible, and the artistry and growth and vision involved in each album,

I think their three best albums are Illusion of Safety, Beggars, and Major/Minor

On the other hand, as a fan, my personal favorite is Vheissu, (which seems to be common)

my faves in order:

1: alchemy index I
2: vheissu
3: artist in the ambulance.

but some of the best songs (in exile; doublespeak) are off beggars.

btw, when the hell is this live cd goin to leak????? i have no patience for tuesday to buy.

It's beautiful, there's nothing else out there like it. It's sad to hear Riley not say the most positive things about the making of the album and the effects of it, but it's still one I'll always keep going back to.

I agree with you. Did you watch the III/IV interview btw? Riley didn't seem to talk as fondly of that one as he did the early stuff. Or maybe it's just me?

It's good to know that they made the records that they wanted to make and not caving to label pressure
