Wow, I radically changed my opinion since then!
This night wounds time.

Out of control, out of control :
Greasy machinery slides on the rails,
Young minds and bodies on steel spokes impaled.... "

So hard to pick between them, really. Godbluff is my undisputed favorite, but based on the topic, it's taking a rare second place in my book. I'm giving the vote to Still Life. The mature, introspective reflections Hammill offers in those tracks are truly wonderful.

There's a house with no bell, but then nobody calls
I sometimes find it hard to tell if any are alive at all, outside

When I heard that one I just stopped listening and never picked it up again.   I think  e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0 is just as cool as the next guy, but I definitely don't want to hear it in a song. Especially since I was a taking a signals and systems class at the time... too many Fourier Transforms kind of ruined the appeal for me.

Still Life.  The lyrics to the title cut are brilliant Wink
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

I chose The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other because it has seemed to speak to me the best.

Still Life, but for lyrics I do prefer the PH solo albums.
