    Ys and Have One On Me are tied for #1. I feel like with both of these, I will still be discovering things to love years down the line.

    I've had HOOM since it came out and still haven't really listened to all the songs. It's essentially three separate albums to me.

    Totally. I don't feel as though I have much of an opinion of 'No Provenance', 'Autumn', or 'Kingfisher' as I simply don't know them very well. Part of me wants to write them off as less interesting songs, but then I nearly did that with 'Occident' and now I find it to be one of her most resonant pieces.

    People wanted her to stay with the MEM sound and she didn't. She's not actually a quirky folky indigo child with a harp. She was a lot more complex than that, and a lot of people find her newer stuff impenetrable and pretentious. They're really missing out.

    What if you consider the three discs of HOOM separately? In that case, I think it'd be:

    1. Ys
    2. Have One On Me
    - Disc 2
    - Disc 1
    - Disc 3
    3. The Milk-Eyed Mender

    Oooh! I like that idea.

    1. Ys

    2. HOOM
    - Disc 1
    - Disc 3 (by a hair)
    - Disc 2

    3. MEM

    I listen to HOOM way more than Ys.
    But Ys is still my favorite.

    Hey, neat idea.

    1. Ys
    2. HOOM Disc 2
    3. HOOM Disc 1
    4. Milk Eyed Mender
    5. HOOM Disc 3

    This might be due to a lack of familiarity with Disc 3, but while individual songs are greatly to my liking it hasn't clicked as a whole. I love the variety of Disc 1, and Disc 2 is perfect.

    That's a great deal harder for me. I love more songs on disc 1 and disc 3 than I do on disc 2, but disc 2 has two of my very favorite songs (Go Long and In California) and I would dare say those two songs trump all. Dammit.

    Ys/HOOM Disc 2
    HOOM Disc 1
    HOOM Disc 3
    MEM

    I really have to think about the order of the HOOM disks.

    I'm really surprised but interested to find that Ys is consistently outranking HOOM in the rankings. I only saw one person clearly list HOOM as their favorite album (I think it's far superior to Ys, but I'm obviously in the minority). Hmmm. I will have to read the Ys discussion thread and see what nuances people enjoy.
