Im sure this has been done before somewhere on this website but I cant find it in the search so Beer.
Heres my top ten.
10. Giant
9. The River
8. Funny Ways
7. The House, The Street, The Room
6. So Sincere
5. Proclamation 
4. Knots
3. Nothing at All
2. Boys in the Band
1. Advent of Panurge

(Yes I know its heavy with Octopus material, call me biased because it was my first GG record, but I do believe it is their best)

1. Pantagruel's Nativity
2. The Runaway
3. The Moon is Down
4. The Advent of Panurge
5. On Reflection
6. Aspirations
7. Just the Same
8. Proclamation
9. Interview
10. Knots

Didn't spend much time on this, only confident about the top five. Don't worry about bias, Octopus is definitely their best album, followed closely by Acquiring The Taste.

Sure it does! And a very fine one, at that.

Agreeing with the and...and...and... those three could easily been on my list. I guess if I had allowed myself to include Mr. Class and Quality/Three Friends as one song it would have gotten the 6th or 7th spot pushing Funny Ways out of top ten.  

and perhaps even:

9. Give It Back
Interview is almost a bit of a comeback-album to my ears. My fifth favorite GG-album. Its complex as always but less forced-or more natural sounding + a little more playful and melodic than the 73-75 trio of albums (which I'm sure you don't agree with).
