PJ Albums Ranked by Fans

A PJ fan on Twitter has been asking fans to rank their favorite PJ albums for the last few weeks, and he was awesome enough to let me write a blog about it here: http://wp.me/p14hZS-pB

Any thoughts? Do you agree/disagree with the rankings? Just thought it would be fun to share :-)

    Thanks for sharing your rankings! Personally, I'd rank No Code at 2 or 3 and Vs. at 4, maybe. The Twitter votes for this last set of rankings are only a small number of fans and it's in no way representative of everybody's opinion, so I'm always interested to hear other viewpoints.
    Oh, and thanks for inadvertently reminding me about Mirror Ball. It's time I revisited that album.

    Thanks for withstanding the pain to list your choices. Awesome that you rank Avocado pretty highly. A lot of people I've seen don't rank it even in their top 3.

    I agree about the emotional highs and lows, and I feel so lucky that I got to see Inside Job performed live. I'll never forget that experience.

    Done this a bunch of times before, always fun. Top 5 never change but the order does/can and they really could be 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, and 1e. Bottom one doesn't change but the others do.
    Love them all btw.

    Fun thing to do before starting work! Just joined Ten Club after two amazing Fenway concerts. Travelled over to Boston from Ireland for the weekend and I was blown away by the experience - first US visit and first PJ concerts.
    Loved Ten and Vs in my twenties and then lost contact with the band. How on earth did that happen?!
    Now trying to make up for lost time...
