I have many favourites: 'Hex Enduction Hour' is a tour-de-force, 'The Wonderful And Frightening World Of....' is sublime and full-on at the same time, 'Dragnet' is a classic of lo-fi before we knew what lo-fi was, 'Bend Sinister' and 'This Nation's Saving Grace' contrived to make the eighties just about bearable, more recently 'Fall Heads Roll' showed that Mark E. could never lose the plot entirely, but the best for me will always be 'Grotesque (after the gramme)' which is bewitchingly brilliant from start to finish, and also has the best artwork, and closely followed by 'Slates' which was a 10-inch, so hence not a proper album as such, but contained more ideas in six songs than most bands muster in a lifetime.

I'm a sucker for most of the Brix-era stuff, she was definitely something of a muse. Although neither album was perfect, Bend Sinister and I Am Kurious Oranj had some pretty awesome moments on them - Big New Prinz is a personal favourite from the latter. Other than that, I'm going to bottle it and choose a compilation - The Complete Peel Sessions is all you could ever need.

Early Fall is my favourite, too, 'Witch Trials' is an absolute stonker, 'Dragnet', 'Totale's Turns', love it all.

Right. I'm very fond of The Infotainment Scan, Hed Enduction Hour contains two of my favourite Fall songs in The Classical and Hip Priest, and whatever album you can get the 7-minute version of No Bulbs on is a must. However, my (possibly predictable) choice would probably be This Nation's Saving Grace for its wonderful Can-esque groove.

Bump...............Agree with TNSG. Many Fall fans disagree but I really like Reformation Post TLC Slighty less Mark Smith and more of a musicians album imo. Mrs Smith is particularly good and that glorious bass in the engine room.

Hex Education Hour for 'Hip Priest' - superb. Loads of great Fall collections out there for the uninitiated. This is the business 50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong: 39 Golden Greats

Personally this Fall/Autumn I'm looking most forward to Florence and the Machine's Ceremonials, and the new Snow Patrol album as well.

Oh, that's not what you meant?
