    Album Rank 2017

    So where does everyone stand in the year 2017?

    From the Choirgirl Hotel
    Scarlet's Walk
    Under the Pink
    Boys for Pele
    To Venus and Back
    Night of Hunters
    Gold Dust
    Unrepentant Geraldines
    Little Earthquakes
    American Doll Posse
    Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    The Beekeeper
    Strange Little Girls
    Midwinter Graces

    And that's pretty much how I always felt about SLG; the production is stellar but the end result especially if you have Fear of Black Planet and I'm Sick of You and don't use it. Also only covers anyway. Same goes for AATS (best production and synths since Choirgirl and Venus) that album is truly confused lol.

    my rank:

    Boys for Pele
    Under the Pink
    Scarlet's Walk
    From the Choirgirl Hotel
    Little Earthquakes
    Unrepentant Geraldines
    Strange Little Girls
    To Venus and Back
    The Beekeeper
    Night of Hunters
    American Doll Posse
    Midwinter Graces
    Gold Dust
    Abnormally Attracted to Sin

    BfP is always #1. Scarlet took on new relevance this year and I think if she trimmed 3 songs it would be unimpeachable in her catalog. Pink/Choirgirl/LE change places constantly for me. I love them all. I know UG is high up there, but I honestly love it and its very meaningful to me. SLG and Venus are about even but giving SLG the edge because I listen to it more often - though Venus has greatly risen in my estimation. TBK is half decent half nonsense. I give ADP a slight edge over MWG just because its more original material, though I wager I enjoy MWG more during the time of year I listen to it.. Gold Dust is a waste of time but it's STILL not as bad as AATS.

    I think this is where I stand:

    I'm actually surprised how high up UG is.

    1. From the Choirgirl Hotel
    2. Scarlet's Walk
    3. Little Earthquakes
    4. Boys for Pele
    5. Under the Pink
    6. To Venus and Back
    7. Unrepentant Geraldines
    8. American Doll Posse
    9. Night of Hunters
    10. The Beekeeper
    11. Strange Little Girls
    12. Midwinter Graces
    13. Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    14. Gold Dust

    When I do this, I typically leave off SLG/MG/GD:

    1. From the Choirgirl Hotel
    2. Scarlet's Walk
    3. Little Earthquakes
    4. Boys for Pele
    5. Under the Pink
    6. To Venus and Back
    7. Unrepentant Geraldines
    8. American Doll Posse
    9. Night of Hunters
    10. The Beekeeper
    11. Abnormally Attracted to Sin

    I'll bite.

    From The Choirgirl Hotel
    Boys For Pele
    Under The Pink
    Scarlet's Walk
    Little Earthquakes
    To Venus And Back
    Strange Little Girls
    Night Of Hunters
    Unrepentant Geraldines
    Y Kant Tori Read
    The Beekeeper
    Midwinter Graces
    Gold Dust
    American Doll Posse
    Abnormally Attracted To Sin (this album is so horrible it makes me angry)

    And it's not her album per se, but for what it's worth, I'd probably listen to the cast album of Light Princess probably before anything on my list after Strange Little Girls. It's her biggest accomplishment of the last 15 years IMHO (or will be in October when the Scarlet anniversary has passed); she did some really lovely things for TLP.

    1. pele
    2. pink (these both tie for number one, I think they are both perfect albums)
    3. scarlet
    4. venus
    5. choirgirl
    6. earthquakes
    7. beekeeper
    8. SLG
    9. UG
    10. adp
    11. mwg - I unashsmedly love this at xmas
    12. night of hunters
    13. aats
    14. gold dust - I have never even listened to this properly.

    this was interesting as it made me realise how much I love the b-sides; if they were included then earthquakes would be higher than choirgirl and scarlet. post- scarlet, there are songs that I really adore on every album, but they get less frequent...

    GD gets last position on all of these except one person wow. I knew it was not the most well liked here but worst? It's a wonderfully executed album just listen to Marianne and tell me that isn't breathtaking? It made me finally appreciate COMT and SATY and she butchered Yes, Anastasia but can forgive her.
