I've been obsessed with this band lately, so here's a poll.  Hopes & Fears was my favorite until just now.  I'm in the middle of listening to TWAIIT and it's definitely the best of the three (I had neglected it for a long time...)

Hopes & Fears and Winter Songs are about equal in my mind.  At the moment, I prefer Hopes & Fears but they're really interchangeable.

Amazing band.

In before Lappy: best band ever.  Also, Art Baers.

I voted for Hopes & Fears, but I'm already having buyers remorse.  I need to listen to all of these albums a bit more.  I'm in the category of "I love Henry Cow, and like but don't love Art Bears".  I may even prefer News From Babel, but their records could use some more plays as well.

voted for my favourite album

re: News from Babel - never felt Wyatt fit their sound or that their songs were all that great. and the lol describing the impossible curvature of Klein's bottle arch-dorkness of their lyrics is a little too much

The World as it is Today was my first and remains my sentimental favourite.  It's between that and Winter Songs, which is brilliant , I think, and like the debut considerably as well.  I haven't been listening to much AB over the last months, as I rather overplayed AB and related projects.  As for News From Babel, since it's been mentioned, I bunt myself out on that -- absolutely loved it, but after a while it seemed a little, well, shallow.  Still play it and like it considerably.

edited for name transference.

Exatcly the same as Logan. All of it.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

See, I like that Wyatt one a lot better, for whatever that's worth.

I also like Letters Home a lot and didn't actually like the Krause track as much. LOL

I haven't heard enough Art Bears to be able to vote... but I am also preferring New from Babel. Wink

I found Hopes and Fears randomly in a Mitchell Book's (dunno if it's national) for $3. Jeluz?

S'ok.

Winter Songs, though all 3 albums are essential.
