    The Kick Inside
    + Moving
    - Room for the Life

    Lionheart
    + Wow
    - Oh England My Lionheart

    Never for Ever
    + The Wedding List
    - This is the one Kate album where I don't have a clear least-favourite. But if pressed I'd say The Infant Kiss

    The Dreaming
    + Night of the Swallow (Whenever someone hears this song for the first time and DOESN'T get completely blown away by it, I have a hard time looking at them in the same way again. )
    - Sat In Your Lap (Never quite got the fuss on this one)

    Hounds of Love
    + Hello Earth (The song that made me "notice" Kate Bush in the first place, and I still say it's her finest)
    - The Big Sky

    The Sensual World
    + Rocket's Tail
    - Reaching Out

    The Red Shoes
    + Top of the City (Perhaps surprisingly, there are so many on this album I love that this was the hardest pick)
    - Why Should I Love You (The demo is brilliant, but the final version is putrid. I have to deal with enough of that being a Stevie Nicks fan, Kate! Don't you go there too!)

    Aerial
    + Nocturn
    - An Architect's Dream

    The Kick Inside:
    + L'amour looks something like you (Moving and Wuthering Heights close runner-ups).
    - Room for the life.

    Lionheart:
    + Symphony in Blue.
    - Fullhouse.

    Never For Ever:
    + Delius (song of summer)
    - Night-Scented Stock (just because the rest are much stronger)

    The Dreaming:
    + Night of the swallow (by far)
    - The Dreaming (again, just because the rest are much stronger songs, but I love this one, too!)

    Hounds Of Love:
    + Waking the Witch/Hello Earth.
    - The Morning Fog.

    The Sensual World:
    + Rocket's Tail/The Fog/The Sensual World (I know, just one, but hell, those are perfect!)
    - Between a man and a woman.

    The Red Shoes:
    + Moments of Pleasure/The Song of Solomon
    - Eat the music.

    Aerial:
    + Nocturn (no contest)
    - Prelude.

    B-side/non-album:
    + Ne T'En Fui Pas
    - Ken?

    - So hard! I used to hate Kite until I realised it possibly inspired the theme to cheesy 80s sit com Sorry and now it makes me smile. Also it could be someone very posh pronouncing her forname as "kyte". Strange Phenomena, I suppose, could've shifted to a B-side without harming the album much.

    LH:
    + Wow, for cementing her as a chart artist
    - Fullhouse, could have been a bridge to one of the other songs really

    N4E:
    + Army Dreamers narrowly beats Babooshka, both amazingly invented pop songs. There's no way Army Dreamers would get played on the radio if it was released now.
    - Violin bores me, it's like someone doing a bad impression of Kate being "wacky"

    TD:
    + Suspended in Gaffa, for managing to touch so many emotional buttons through such musically unobvious routes
    - There Goes A Tenner, Dick van Dyke can do an equally convincing cockney accent

    HOL:
    + Hello Earth, but virtually impossible to choose
    - I suppose The Big Sky is 'merely' extremely good, a 9/10, and so ends up in this spot undeservingly

    TSW:
    + Rocket's Tail is like nothing else and bonfire night is 'my' night, but TSW,NevarBMine and This Woman's work all 10/10 too
    - If a crack in time sucked Between A Man And A Woman off everybody's copies I think it'd be a while til it was missed

    TRS:
    + Fewer 10s but more 9s than its predecessors. Eat the Music! Also MOP & TOTC & L & &SIL.
    - Constellation of the Heart would've been a nice enough b-side

    A:
    + King of the Mountain has an edge of quirk, ahead of Mrs B and Coral Room which are among my favorite profound piano ballads
    - Bertie Undone, though I don't really hate it, well not for the first 3 or 4 minutes
    i almost completely agree with this list. the only bits i'd change would be

    HOL:
    - Mother Stands for Comfort

    TSW:
    + The Sensual World


    I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

    This is a toughie! On some of my favourite albums (HOL, TD), the "least favourite" choice is just the least awesome on an album of utter awesomeness. On others, my feelings are genuinely more meh. Anyway, here they are...

    + The Saxophone Song
    - Feel It

    Lionheart:
    + Kashka from Baghdad
    - In the Warm Room

    Never for Ever:
    + Breathing
    - Night Scented Stock

    The Dreaming:
    + Get Out of My House
    - All the Love

    Hounds of Love
    + Jig of Life
    - And Dream of Sheep

    The Sensual World
    + The Sensual World
    - Walk Straight Down the Middle

    The Red Shoes
    + The Red Shoes
    - Why Should I Love You?

    - How to Be Invisible

    Director's Cut:
    + The Red Shoes
    - Flower of the Mountain

    I still feel like I've yet to 'discover' a lot of Kate's work...had all the albums for at least a few years (when I got into her), but got them all at the same time basically, so many songs kinda fell by the wayside until recently. So this might not be truly fair.

    TKI
    +Wuthering Heights
    -I..barely know how half of the album tracks go. L'Amour maybe? Not fair really.

    LH
    +Symphony In Blue
    -Possibly Fullhouse. Whatever, same as TKI, a lot just blend together into non-opinion.

    NFE
    +Breathing
    -Egypt

    TD
    +Love a lot, but not necessarily more than each other. But current love is Night of the Swallow.
    -Probs All The Love. Forgettable.

    HOL
    +Running Up That Hill
    -The Morning Fog

    TSW
    +Rocket's Tail
    -Reaching Out

    TRS strangely the Kate album I enjoy solidly throughout most! Or rather, it stays on the same course of enjoyment...or something...
    +The Red Shoes
    -Eat The Music

    Aerial
    +Nocturn
    -Prelude

    DC
    +Song of Solomon
    -And So Is Love

    Okay, that was really hard. There is no Kate song I hate so the least favourite tracks are the ones that IMO don't fit the album or are slightly less interesting than the rest.

    The Kick Inside
    + Wuthering Heights
    - Room for the Life

    Lionheart
    + Coffee Homeground
    - In the Warm Room or Symphony in Blue

    Never for Ever
    + Army Dreaming
    - Night Scented Stock

    The Dreaming
    + All the Love
    - Pull Out the Pin

    Hounds of Love
    + Hello Earth
    - Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God). Don't hate me - I love this song but it sounds pretty generic compared to the rest of the album.

    The Sensual World
    + Rocket's Tail
    - Walk Straight Down the Middle. Or, if we don't count bonus tracks, Heads We're Dancing or Between a Man and a Woman.

    The Red Shoes
    + The Song of Solomon
    - Why Should I Love You?

    Aerial
    + π
    - Hard to choose. Maybe some interludes on the 2nd disc? I mean The Painter's Link or Prelude... From the 1st disc Joanni I guess.

    Director's Cut
    + Never Be Mine. Already one of my favourite TSW songs - and it's improved here!
    - And So Is Love. Because she changed the lyric.

    50 Words for Snow
    + Lake Tahoe
    - Among Angels
