No, that's absolutely their best album. Anybody who says otherwise is being a tryhard. It's their pinnacle both on a technical and a creative level. David Byrne and co never recreated the absolute fucking genius of Born Under Punches again.

Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished. Expect a lot of experimentation and some harsh noise, mind you.

People have different tastes. Sung tongs is like folkish and primal sounds, Spirit is experimental noisy pop, and MPP is psychedelic heavily synthesized pop. If you are the OP of the question, my best advice is to listen to all three and make your own opinion.

Yeah, because you were alive back then to assert it used to sound better before.

So?

>RiL is superior in every way, or in other words, it doesn't sound "dated" (even if that argument has no validity at all)
>>
>>61559914
>honestly it doesn't sound that good anymore
Has the music on the album changed? What do you mean?

>lots of songs like Mind sound odd and awkward
Mind is a great song. If it sounds "odd and awkward" to you then you probably missed the point. That's part of the style of the album.
>RiL is superior in every way
Apart from the songwriting and thematic cohesion.

Let My Children Hear Music is his best album

I think it's actually their best, but Speaking in Tongues is close
>>61558069
Correct, it's Feels
>>61558166
Correct, it's Ascension
>>61559362
Kid A is their most acclaimed

Also I guess Teen Dream is the most acclaimed Beach House album but Bloom is better

How is it an invalid argument? FoM sounds like a product of it's time, it's fairly standard new wave, while RiL still sounds original to this very day. Also it would have been nice for you to provide an argument for why you think that FoM is the supperior album instead of just dismissing what that anon said.

Mount Eerie is the better album IMO

this depends on which one you prefer

i still feel that white light is their best at mixing pop structure with art rock structure (lou reed vs john cale)

>>61559362
agree. ok computer was certainly revolutionary, especially compared to kid a.
but kid a is completely perfect.

>>61560100
agree 100%, wish you were here is undeniably a better album

>>61560239
i feel that lift yr solidifies the ideas in F A ∞ and makes it more narrative, i like it way more

>>61562494
agree, not sure why this album became their most appreciated (im guessing mu charts)
>>
>>61562494
In Praise of Learning > Legend > Unrest > other one
>>
>>61562494
That's definitely their best though. But it's fine to have any other as your favorite.
Personally
IPoL > Legend > Unrest > WC

>>61562494
>it would have been nice for you to provide an argument for why you think that FoM is the supperior album instead of just dismissing what that anon said
Not really, because the point of the argument was saying that "dated" is not a valid argument, instead of determining which one of those was better or worse.
Personally, I never liked the "dated" argument. Sounds "cheap" for someone to expect for an album to sound good for himself after all that time. I mean, would you say Baroque sounds dated? Because I would, but I would never use that as an argument to determine it's quality.
>>
>>61558365
Its almost like music is subjective and theres no right answer
>>
>>61563473
>music is subjective
I think you mean "musical taste", because physical phenomena aren't subjective (unless you want to go into a philosophical argument).
Also, there can be a right answer if you define "best" with objective criteria.
>>
>>61563440
>>61563440
>tfw unrest is my favorite one
why are you guys putting it last?
also I'm not saying that sounding dated is necessarily a bad thing, in fact it's there's a certain charm to it, especially with genres such as acid house. It's just that it pales in comparison to RiL, an album that still hasn't been replicated to this day

Paralytic Stalks is better but it should be obvious to anyone why Hissing Fauna is their most acclaimed album
>>
>>61563615
Satanic Panic is Kevin's greatest work. Paralytic Stalks drops off a bit towards the end.
>>
>>61563613
>why are you guys putting it last?
Don't like any songs from that album save for the first one, but I like every first song from the other albums more like that one, so...

>It's just that it pales in comparison to RiL, an album that still hasn't been replicated to this day
My argument is that "dated" is not a valid argument.
As to which one is better? I wouldn't know.
>>
>>61563530
Music isn't a physical phenomena. Vibrations are.
>>
>>61563530
>there can be a right answer if you define "best" with objective criteria
Except you can't because there's no objective way to determine which objective criteria to base it on.
>>
brb in 30 minutes

>>61563784
Music is a part of acoustic phenomena, which is also a part of physical phenomena; so, yes, music is a physical phenomena.

>>61563821
>there's no objective way to determine which objective criteria to base it on.
Yeah, because that's besides the point. It's like trying to demonstrate the validity of the scientific method using the scientific method. It doesn't make sense, because the scientific method (or our criteria of "best") is the starting point to determine things.

OK Computer is their most acclaimed by a mile.

Kid A is better. That anon was correct.

Unrest is actually their most critically acclaimed though...

It's actually The Ascension

It has always been IPoL
