    always torn between The Lonesome Crowded West and The Moon & Antarctica. This Is A Long Drive... is damn good too. Gotta go with TLCW for nostalgic reasons (one of the first great albums I ever heard).

    P.S. Building Nothing Out Of Something, though a compilation, is A+ as well.

    Moon, by far. "3rd Planet" and "Perfect Disguise" are just as good now as they were the first time I heard 'em. This is their classic album, and as good as LCW is, it just doesn't hold a candle.

    the perfect disguice remix from the deluxe Moon is sick as fuck.

    edit - it was a bbc radio o1 session


    i personally prefer the instrumentation on LCW. no denying Moon and Antarctica is a perfect record.

    LCW has better individual songs, but M&A is a more fully realized and cohesive album and is why it got my vote. Tough choice, though.

    The Moon and Antarctica, for "Tiny Cities Made of Ashes", "A Different City" & "The Cold Part", but Johnny Marr made a great addition for We Were Dead...
