Someone set a poll of Pat Metheny albums, but there are a lot of omissions....
I've tried to make a full discography poll... but 25 limit....
So I split albums with ECM era and Geffen Era....
This is the first poll of PM albums

First Circle is fantastic, but I'm going to have to go with Offramp as my favorite, for Are You Going With Me.

I have soft spot for 1978s Pat Metheny Group.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

That's an excellent album alongside American Garage.

I have most of these on vinyl, my vote goes to Watercolors. This is a great album by Metheny and crew. There are some very atmospheric tracks on this album. Kind of overlooked in the Metheny discog.

I feel a progressive music character included enough as for the work from 81 to 84 years though I personally support Bright Size Life.

I've got all but three of these and the only one I haven't heard is Song X.  I'm going for the one that introduced me to Pat - American Garage.
Falcon and the Snowman, which I don't have, is an interesting movie.  Good soundtrack work as I recall.

Heard American Garage being played over a record shops main speakers, and bought it then and there - and It's stood the test of time. Witcha  has it moments and comes a close second

I prefer Bright Size Life: fresh every time I play it, even after 35 years!
