    Last Christmas I tried to listen to Midwinter Graces and I just couldn't get through it. AAtS has aged so poorly. Meanwhile, NoH and UG are still pretty solid to my ears.

    OK, I have to ask, what do you have against Choirgirl? To rank MWG, GD, and ADP above it????

    I thought I posted here I guess not? The divides aren't gaps in how much I love the albums and more the way my mind splits them up and groups them together as far as how much I love them, if that makes sense. Scarlet and BFP often alternate for the top spot, and 3-7 I love pretty much equally so the order hardly matters and I probably love them just as much as the top 2.

    For me right now it'd be something like:

    1. From the Choirgirl Hotel
    2. To Venus and Back
    3. Boys for Pele

    4. Scarlet's Walk
    5. Little Earthquakes
    6. Strange Little Girls
    7. Under the Pink
    8. Night of Hunter
    9. The Beekeeper
    10. Unrepentant Geraldines
    11. American Doll Posse

    12. Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    13. Midwinter Graces
    14. Gold Dust

    Top 3 and bottom 3 usually stay the same. The rest tend to move up and down depending on my mood.

    I like what Venus_Envy did in another thread - so I shall do the same:

    1) From the Choirgirl Hotel
    I don't think I would be as big a Tori fan if the experimentation and electronica of FTCH and TVAB never happened.
    - Favourite Track: Jackie's Strength, Iieee, Liquid Diamonds, Northerm Lad, Hotel, Playboy Mommy. Cannot choose between these 6 - all brilliant.
    - Worst Track: She's Your Cocaine. Love it but it is the one I skip most.

    2) Little Earthquakes
    - Favourite Track: Little Earthquakes, Winter, Mother, Precious Things
    - Worst Track: Happy Phantom

    3) Boys for Pele
    - Favourite Track: Horses, Caught a Lite Sneeze, Hey Jupiter, Putting the Damage On
    - Worst Track: Agent Orange

    4) Scarlet's Walk
    Surprised this is above UTP. I think I just prefer it as a whole album more. I often go to Pink for specific songs.
    - Favourite Track: Strange, Crazy, I Can't See New York, Virginia
    - Worst Track: Wampum Prayer

    5) To Venus and Back
    Only above UTP because I listen to it as an album more.
    - Favourite Track: Lust, Riot Poof, 1000 Oceans
    - Worst Track: Glory of the 80s. Love it but is my least fav.

    6) Under the Pink
    I skip God, Cornflake Girl and some others so it is number 6.
    - Favourite Track: Pretty Good Year, Bells For Her, Past the Mission, Yes Anastasia
    - Worst Track: God. I like it but does it the least for me on the record.

    7) Unrepentant Geraldines
    So happy this one is holding out for me after more than 3 years of release. I listen to this one the most probably because it still feels new - but it can't replace those above.
    - Favourite Track: America, Weatherman, Selkie, Oysters, Forest of Glass
    - Worst Track: Promise. Like it, but I would have preferred a prettier song that fits more with the rest of the album. Sounds like a last minute tag on to me (which we know it is from Tash's social media at the time).

    8) Strange Little Girls
    - Favourite Track: New Age, Raining Blood, Real Men
    - Worst Track: I Don't Like Mondays

    9) Night of Hunters
    I listen to this quite a bit more than those above along with UG.
    - Favourite Track: Shattering Sea, Fearlessness, Star Whisperer, Edge of the Moon, Carry
    - Worst Track: The Chase

    10) American Doll Posse
    This used to be below TBK and AATS for me but now I realize I like many songs - but it is a disaster of an album.
    - Favourite Track: Bouncing off Clouds, Beauty of Speed, Dragon
    - Worst Track: Yo George, Secret Spell

    11) The Beekeeper
    - Favourite Track: Parasol, General Joy, Martha's Foolish Ginger
    - Worst Track: Hoochie Woman, Sweet the Sting (loathe it)

    12) Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    Loved it the first year or so. Now it is pretty low on the list.
    - Favourite Track: Give, Fast Horse
    - Worst Track: Not Dying Today, Mary Jane

    13) Midwinter Graces
    Love this at Christmas actually! But I don't see it as a real album so it is low on the list.
    - Favourite Track: Holly Ivy and Rose, Winter's Carol, Our New Year
    - Worst Track: Harps of Gold

    14) Gold Dust
    Missed opportunity
    - Favourite Track: Flavor, Precious Things, Marianne (Snow Angel and Girl Dissapearing are quite good too)
    - Worst Track: Maybe California?

    Tales of a Librarian would be tied at the bottom with Gold Dust.

    Yeah, I know I have very unpopular opinions.
    I thought that the COMT that's on Venus wasn't very popular, though.

    Oops, my bad. I thought you were referring to the studio version. I'll remove that. Lucille Bluth sticks around for the other 3, tho.

    Its so funny you ask, I have NEVER been able to get into Choirgirl. I remember seeing the video for "Spark" back in the day and just immediately not feeling the track. The guitar riff seemed prosaic and kind of reductionist based on what came before on Pele. When I eventually listened to the whole album I just couldn't get into it. The movement into electronic/more beat oriented track seemed half-baked and kind of amateurish. (Something I think she corrected well on To Venus and Back). The only song I tend to listen to all the way through is "Pandora's Aquarium" and that sounds like a more authentic sound overall. So, ya.

    I'm doing that thing too because it's always time for my opinion

    1. Scarlet's Walk
    - Favorite tracks: Scarlet's Walk, Virginia, I Can't See New York, A Sorta Fairytale
    - Worst tracks: Strange, Another Girl's Paradise. It feels wrong to call them "worst tracks" though because this is an album that to me, doesn't have a single flaw.

    2. Little Earthquakes
    - Favorite tracks: Tear In Your Hand, Mother, Little Earthquakes, Silent All These Years
    - Worst tracks: Happy Phantom, Leather

    3. Boys for Pele
    - Favorite tracks: Hey Jupiter, Not the Red Baron, Way Down, Father Lucifer
    - Worst tracks: Agent Orange, Twinkle

    4. Strange Little Girls
    - Favorite tracks: New Age, Time, Real Men, Rattlesnakes
    - Worst Tracks: I'm Not in Love, Raining Blood

    5. Under the Pink
    - Favorite tracks: Space Dog (my all time favorite Tori song), Pretty Good Year, Yes, Anastasia, Cornflake Girl
    - Worst tracks: Bells for Her, Cloud on my Tongue

    6. To Venus and Back
    - Favorite Tracks: Spring Haze, Datura, Suede, Bliss
    - Worst tracks: Concertina, Riot Poof

    7. From the Choirgirl Hotel
    I don't know why, but I've never been able to connect with this album in the same way a lot of other Tori fans have. It's still an obviously stunning piece of work, though.
    - Favorite tracks: Hotel, Northern Lad, i i e e e, Spark
    - Worst tracks: Jackie's Strength, another song that I'm not going to mention because I don't want to become unforumzed public enemy #1.

    8. The Beekeeper
    - Favorite tracks: The Beekeeper, Garlands, Goodbye Pisces, Martha's Foolish Ginger
    - Worst tracks: Ribbons Undone, Ireland

    9. Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    - Favorite tracks: Lady in Blue, Starling, Welcome to England, Abnormally Attracted to Sin
    - Worst tracks: the obvious choices: Not Dying Today, Mary Jane, etc.

    10. Unrepentant Geraldines
    - Favorite tracks: Selkie, Weatherman, Wedding Day, Invisible Boy
    - Worst tracks: Giant's Rolling Pin, Rose Dover

    11. Night of Hunters
    This album has actually grown on me a little bit just in the last few days
    - Favorite tracks: Carry, Fearlessness, Star Whisperer, Shattering Sea
    - Worst tracks: The Chase, Night of Hunters

    12. Midwinter Graces
    Pretty good for a Tori Amos Christmas album
    - Favorite tracks: Snow Angel, Our New Year, Star of Wonder, Winter's Carol
    - Worst tracks: A Silent Night With You, Jeanette, Isabella

    13. American Doll Posse
    Maybe the bar is set pretty low for me, but in my opinion this is her only 100% TRUE stinker. She sure made it count, though.
    - Favorite tracks: Roosterspur Bridge, Dragon, Father's Son, Body and Soul
    - Worst tracks: too many to list
