Phideaux, one of my favourite bands, with a number of great albums. The choice of which is the best is a tough one. Chupacabras contains my favourite track (Chupacabras), when it comes to est album I am very much torn between Doomsday and Number Seven.

I'll give a vote to Chupacabras as I'm sure Doomsday will dominate this poll.
The title track, Titan, sunburnt, and Fortress of Sand are all great tracks.

Love Phideaux!  I voted Doomsday Afternoon, but it's really a draw between Doomsday and Number Seven.

The third album in the trilogy whenever it comes out. LOL
Number Seven seems a bit derivative of Doomsday, which I can forgive because I like Doomsday a lot.  But I have and like all of these so I'm going to have to cast a sympathy vote, but I'm not going to reveal which one.

Ahhh Brian you can't do that!  Spill the beans I say.
 
I have 4 of Phideaux's and for me the latest, Number 7, is the best.  A fabulous album and for me it's even stronger than it's predecessor.  A word of praise too for The Great Leap which appears very unloved around these parts.  It's a wonderful collection of songs in my opinion, a really excellent album.

I'm one of the few who prefer his early stuff. I went with "Ghost Story" but could have easily taken "Chupacabras".

I don't get why everyone loves Doomsday. Number 7 seems far superior to me.

I went with Fiendish, my first.  I don't know why The Great Leap isn't higher regarded.  I think Doomsday overshadowed it.

Number 7 for me - love that album.
