    I feel like it’s a contentious statement but I’d still rather listen to The Beekeeper or ADP over UG or NI most times when it really comes down to it. There are just more highs on the first two than on the latter for me.

    I can’t wait for the Choirgirl reissue. I really think it’s her best body of work other than Pele. And as an era it has EVERYTHING: the b-sides, the TOUR, the artwork, the videos.

    So it is well into 2018 and I am moving Native Invader up in my list... and made AATS the bottom instead of TBK.

    I love Venus, but prefer Native Invader (sorry wout!)... WTF is happening?


    From The Choirgirl Hotel (IIEEE)
    Little Earthquakes (Little Earthquakes)
    Boys For Pele (Hey Jupiter)
    Under the Pink (Past the Mission)

    Scarlet's Walk (Crazy)
    Native Invader (Reindeer King)
    To Venus and Back (1000 Oceans)
    Unrepentant Geraldines (Forest of Glass)
    Strange Little Girls (Real Men)
    Night of Hunters (Shattering Sea)

    Midwinter Graces (Holly, Ivy and Rose)

    American Doll Posse (Beauty of Speed)

    I mostly kid, but for me the new album is so obviously better than everything else post-SW that this isn't so difficult to do at this point. I honestly can't see it falling any lower. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. I also divided my list into tiers, the top 4 albums being absolutely perfect and pretty untouchable.

    01. Boys for Pele
    02. Scarlet's Walk
    03. From the Choirgirl Hotel
    04. Under the Pink

    05. To Venus and Back
    06. Little Earthquakes
    07. Native Invader

    <- Y Kant Tori Read
    08. Strange Little Girls
    09. Unrepentant Geraldines

    10. The Beekeeper
    11. Night of Hunters

    12. American Doll Posse
    13. Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    14. Midwinter Graces
    15. Gold Dust
    More than a year on and I'm still okay with this.

    To begin with i tried to fiddle with an exponential function, but my excel/maths skills were not good enough, so I stole the points system from the FIS (international ski federation. Bizzare, I know) where 1st place is 100 points, 2nd is 80 points,.... up to 30th place being 1 point. However I stretched this over the 212 songs i classified, so that the last song would be roughly equivalent to 1 point. Then I added together the points for each respective album and rounded the points. To be honest, this was an awful way to do this and is full of rounding errors and super confusing. I'm pretty sure you could come up with a more elegant way of doing things which is simpler to process.
