I've been having a blast listening to them lately. I happen to secure  copies of the albums mentioned above last week, since then I can't stop listening to them. I wonder why it took me so long to discover the band and the lovely music they make,Clap
 
My favorite from the list is Catch Without Arms. It's like listening to El Cielo and Letmotif at the same time. I may be wrong here but they sounded a bit poppy here compared to the rest of the discography. Very infectious.Big%20smile
 
What's yours?

I really like Leitmotif. Cool drumming and Tool inspired tracks. I honestly think they worked better with the aggression of their earlier work.

Catch without arms for me, Dredg doesnt get enough respect on this site as it should IMO.

I like Catch without Arms and El Cielo as much actually, though seeing that Catch without Arms was the one that caught my attention I'll go for that one Tongue
Interested in my reviews?
You can find them HERE

Ditto, I love El Cielo.  There is a lot of beauty in its music.  Leitmotif is also great, I really like the hard edge to the music.

Catch Without Arms is IMO a masterpiece. So many great songs (Matroshka, Bug Eyes, Jamais Vu, Title Track, Ode To The Sun...), and still really the feel of ONE album.

I like Leitmotif too, though it's got some weaker pieces. But I like the concept, and some tracks very much (Traversing..., Penguins)

I havent' heard El Cielo yet though.
I am Swiss, so don't kill me for this!

Just picked up CWA in a second hand store today, so can't really judge on that one yet, even if i've heard it 1 or 2 times. It's really a difficult choise between Leitmotif and El Cielo, I think I like them equally even though they're 2 rather different albums. But since El Cielo is leading here, my vote goes to Leitmotif!

Ok, objectively El Cielo is the best, but personally...

Leitmotif
El Cielo
CwA
Live at Fillmore
Orph
