Seems an appropriate time to rate this solid discography.
Usual rules of one 11 and one -1 (not expecting to see any of these though..) allowed per album blah blah.
Have just included the albums plus the Robert Smith version of 'Not in Love' – any more people want to add?

Yes Tony, you definitely need to listen to III if you haven't yet! It's actually my favourite of the three, although there's not much to separate them as they're all great. I'd say it's III>I>II for me but that seems so wrong as I love II!

I think I'll give all of the albums a listen before I rate because a few songs are not as fresh in my memory as the others.

Relistening to the entire discography in one sit made me feel so stupidly emotional that Ethan + Alice are no more and we probably won't get anything as perfect as this from either of them separately. sad.gif

I think you should go for the one that you heard first, then. Extra points for nostalgia tongue.gif. I love I and II equally, but it was II that got me into CC wub.gif

Considering only two rates have been posted over the span of like 10 days, I think you're safe for at least a couple of weeks.

hmm tricky. I'm tempted to say just one for each but no one likes a bore, so go for ittt.
Ha as for the album, III is my favourite but I can imagine you being more of a II kinda guy?

I'd give Doe Deer and Plague my 11 as well if I could. But the three that got it in the end have a special place in my heart so there was no other way really.

It was so tough to rate thooooo. sad.gif

Still playing III occasionally. That first 7 tracks is just a PERFECT little sub-album. You don't even need to make a separate playlist for songs you want to listen to i'm so lazy

i could quite literally write an essay about how perfect (III) is as an album; the message, the songs, the ARTWORK it's just kind of a masterclass in pulling off a concept album without having to force it on people. one of my all time bests.

the two career highlight songs tho are defo celestica and not in love robert version. would have liked to give both 11 but it doesn't look like anyone else is doing that so i won't be that guy.
