Top 3:

Presto
The Pass
Available Light

Filler: None,  Since the poll would not let me vote for the top 3 unless I picked at least one filler I voted for Chain Lightning however.  Picked it at random basically.

Love the production on this album.  Other call it thin.  I don't find it to be so.  Rather I find that the songs have a wonderful space in them that allows them to breathe and I can savor every note and word.

Love the lyrics.  Yes, its a bit of a fall off from Power Windows & HYF but Neil's lyrics were still consistently great.  Unfortunately that very slight fall off was indicative of what was to come.  But they are still wonderful.

Red Tide is the only Presto song I skip. Its not just the dated irritating synth stabs but the "its the late 80s and we have to write socially aware songs about AIDS or the environment now" lyric

Presto is as good as Hold Your Fire & much closer to that album than Roll The Bones in my book!
Best songs are: Show Don't Tell, Chain Lightning & The Pass. The title track is up there too.
Weakest songs are: Anagram & Red Tide, maybe...
