    I love that you get high and post on the forumz. I've never been high but I imagine that if I was I'd go and scream at traffic or cry under the bed or something. Anyhoo I'm going to do this solely because I've already started typing something completely off-topic and now I've jumped in I may as well just take the bate.

    Dry - 'Happy and Bleeding'
    Rid of Me - 'Snake'
    To Bring You My Love - Oh God, they're all perfect. 'I Think I'm A Mother', but I'd miss it.
    Is This Desire? - As above, but My Beautiful Leah. And again, I'd really miss it.
    Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea - Fuck all her albums are good. 'This Is Love', probably. I've surprised myself with that one.
    Uh Huh Her - I really don't like 'Who The Fuck?' actually.
    White Chalk - It's a beautiful ending, but 'The Mountain'.
    Let England Shake - 'Bitter Branches'.

    Sometimes I think the so-called "experts" actually are experts.

    This is not an easy task as Polly is very consistent, but here goes.

    Dry: "Happy and Bleeding"
    Rid of Me: "Rub Till It Bleeds"
    To Bring You My Love: "Working For The Man" (this is cruel and unusual punishment, I can't imagine this album without any of it's vital counterparts)
    Is This Desire?: "Electric Light"
    Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea": "One Line" (?? I guess? Jesus.)
    Uh Huh Her: "Cat On The Wall" (that was easy)
    White Chalk: "Before Departure" (that was not easy)
    Let England Shake: I really can't. I just cannot. But if there was a gun to my head, I guess I'd reluctantly have to go with "Colour of the Earth." Which breaks my heart, because that song makes me weep and is a phenomenal closer.

    Fuck! That sucked.

    Cheer up. If you have a gas problem try taking Gas-Ease.

    D: Joe (I always skipped this one because of its Slipknot vibe)
    ROM: Legs
    4TD: Legs again
    TBYML: Down by the Water
    DHALP: City of No Sun
    ITD: Joy
    SFTC: Kamikaze
    UHH: Who the Fuck
    WC: The Devil
    AWAMWB: Pig Will Not (I just can't even get through this one)
    LES: Bitter Branches

    "Cat on the Wall" is PJ's "Ireland", a song reviled by many but one of my favorites on the album.

    GAH this SUCKS!!!

    Dry: Joe
    Rid of Me: Me Jane
    4 Track Demos: Ecstasy -or- M-Bike (gladly and with pleasure)
    To Bring You My Love: Long Snake Moan (you guys, how on EARTH is I Think I'm a Mother on so many lists? I know this album is perfect, but Mother is PERFECT TIMES INFINITY, JESUS!!!!!!!)
    Dance Hall: Heela (I don't really care for this album, to be honest. I never listen to it)
    Is This Desire: Joy
    Stories: Horses In My Dreams
    Uh Huh Her: Seagulls (trying to understand why this isn't everybody's answer!)
    White Chalk: To Talk To You (this is just as hard as picking from TBYML, in my opinion. This album is perfect from start to finish)
    A Woman A Man: The Chair -or- A Woman A Man -or- Pig Will Not -or- Passionless Pointless
    Let England Shake: England (this is such an obvious choice IMO. Hard for me to believe nobody seems to be picking it)

    Here are mine. I'm only doing the main albums, except for Let England Shake (because I haven't listened to it enough to form an opinion):

    Dry: Dress. She's played this live SO many times that I wouldn't mind if I never heard it again.
    Rid of Me: It's a tie between Man-Size Sextet (on the basis that it's repetitive) OR Highway '61 Revisited, because it's not her song. If I had to pick between the two, I'd go with Sextet because it doesn't match the rest of the sound on the album (whereas Highway '61 Revisited does, even though it's not hers).
    To Bring You My Love: It's a tie between C'mon Billy and Send His Love to Me. As good as these songs are, they're too acoustic-driven and don't really match the overall tone or sound of the album.
    Is This Desire?: Electric Light. For some reason, I always skip this song (live or otherwise). It's just not as effective as others at creating a certain mood or atmosphere.
    Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea: Kamikaze. This always sounded like it was something leftover from Dry or Rid of Me that got stuck onto the album at the last minute – even though the significance of the song probably changed after September 11th.
    Uh Huh Her: Seagulls.
    White Chalk: Before Departure. As much as I like this song, it just seems too simple.

    One Line *or* Beautiful Feeling
    The Slow Drug
    Broken Harp
    All and Everyone
    Changes:

    Hair
    Hook -- but wait!! Only to save it for TBYML!!
    I Think I'm a Mother -- argh, still fucking love it but the album survives without
    The River/Electric Light (either obne, again, argh!!)
    The Whores Hustle/You Said Something
    Who the Fuck -- this one got a lot of attention on release, but hasn't really stood the test of time. I even prefer COTW now. (Seagulls is cheating btw!!)
    Broken Harp
    The Colour of the Earth -- dislike. Slightly worried about more of this on the next album

    1. Hair.
    2. Highway 61 revisited. The album can't do without but hey you made me choose.
    3. Not an album, I won't go there.
    4. Meet ze Monsta.
    5. City of no sun.
    6. Joy. No I can't. No girl so sweet. No. Go away, leave me alone.
    7. This entire album can be skipped, basically, compared to the rest. Whores hustle if I was forced to choose.
    8. Seagulls (aka an easy escape, you don't even choose)
    9. Before departure. Not bad but yeah idk what else.
    10. The Chair.
    11. England. Breaks the album a bit I think. It is better off alone.
