    Even though I'd pick Choirgirl and Pele as my favorites, I find myself wanting to play UTP a lot, especially for the opening with Pretty Good Year. I think a lot of the album is impeccably produced. The piano is so clear and bright, her voice soars, it's just all-around great. I do often skip Space Dog but I mostly adore the rest of it, even Waitress. Every song is so different from the one before it and yet it's all somehow cohesive. The b-sides from this era are also the best ones, IMO.

    I almost never visit LE... usually this is the one I start with.

    I agree that the production on UTP is top notch. I love its atmosphere - it feels remote and immediate at the same time, formal and serious yet dynamic and experimental. It's very special. I love her voice on it. The song I skip the most (aside from Waitress, which for me doesn't exist, never has) is Cloud On My Tongue. I think it's a gorgeous ballad, but I can't get excited about it at all lately.

    Not that I listen to Pink a ton these days either, but I don't really listen to LE at all. It's been many years. I probably haven't even listened to the entire deluxe reissue... definitely not in one sitting. Of the big four, I listen to UTP the most, then BFP, then Choirgirl, and LE last. I love them all - it's just what I'm drawn to in my elderly days.

    A little off topic but am I the only one that thinks the remaster on vinyl sounds a little muffled?

    Is Waitress a lost YKTR song through an early 90's grunge sound though?

    I mean, I can hear YKTR performing it in 80s hair rock style...

    I love how many of the lyrics on UTP are a little quirky. I could quote the entire album really There is something fun about the album if that makes sense.

    A number of the songs all seem to be written in first person:

    I don't believe I went too far...
    I think it's perfectly clear, we're in the wrong band...
    So I want to kill this waitress...
    I know what you want the magpies have come...
    Robbing the muse...

    Listening to this album now is gorgeous. Pretty Good Year remains a favourite but over the years Cloud On My Tongue and Space Dog and Icicle have all leapt out at me. Past the Mission as well. Really I love all of it.
