I recently discovered this amazing band. Their three studio albums are terrific and Dagmar Krause is easily one of the greatest female singers ever.
 
Which of their albums do you prefer?

I was thinking of making of this poll the other day, so well done.
 
I'll go with The World...the other two are a bit weaker overall to me.

It's been a while, but I believe Winter Songs was my favorite.

I only have the latter 2 so no vote here. However, of the 2 I prefer "the world ...". I second what MFP said about the band and Krauze.

Winter Songs, but not by much.
 
One of the scariest songs I've ever heard:

Wow.  It has been a looong time since I listened to these.  Had to go and remind myself of them.

Hopes and Fears for Me.  "Terrain" is just brilliant.

Winter songs is a masterpiece and has my favourite Art Bears song on it:
''Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.''

"Out of town,
My work takes me out of town.
I empty villages
I burn their houses down.
I set up factories,
Lay out plantations,
And bring prosperity to
The poorer nations...."

^ One of my "all-time" favourite songs. 

I love all of them, and am very, very keen on other projects that Art Bears personnel worked on too.  I went with The World as it is Today which was the album that got me into Art Bears (my first) and led me to discover a lot of great music.  I feel like putting on Winter Songs right now; been quite a long time since I last played it.

MFP, have you heard News From Babel ? 



Just now I was looking back on a locked Art Bears poll from 2008 lamenting how I'd rather burned myself out on Art Bears and related projects, but earlier today I was really enjoying Chris Cutler and Lutz Glandien's Domestic Stories again and the Science Group the other day.

Winter Songs for me - all 3 albums are superb but the middle one is as close to perfection as it gets, on a par with Rock Bottom or Lick My Decals Off, Baby.
