Me too! A tough call between that and the debut.

Was it you or was it me? Or was it he or she?

NB: despite what my name may suggest, I was not born in 1972 tongue

So...











I'll have to vote for "So" (the original vinyl tracklisting, not the 2003 remaster tracklisting). It was one of the first albums I ever bought and remains to be one of my favorite albums to this day.

That is interesting. Number 2 is definitely my least favorite one. And although I like the first one, I find it suffers heavily from Bob Ezrin`s overproduction

The ones I have, I would rank like this:

01) SO

.
.
.
big gap
.
.
.

02) IV
03) III
04) Us
05) I
06) Up
07) II

Up is definitely a great album, but I never really got into it. Nevertheless it includes one of my favorite PG songs, which is More Than This.

Why is there such a large gap?

SO is such an immaculate and flawless album, that it stands beyond everything else, Peter has done, imo.

But then again, there are some of his other tracks, which easily can compete with it. Shaking The Tree is an example or the live version of Secret World, which in my opinion is simply a perfect song.

But as an album, he never did anything before and after, that is as great as SO.

So far, lots of love on here for his first solo ten years & far less for the next thirty! Apart from 2 great tracks on Us, I'll go along with that smiley

2 is full of interesting, quirky songs, 1 is just wall to wall good (not great, but good).

3 was Ok, but in my view, a failed experiment, and 4 has 2 good songs and filler, sorry folks, that's how it is to me. Gave 3 & 4 away, and didn't buy any more.
