I think FBN and PW are pretty close. It's hard to compare the two because FBN was still in their raw, cheap stage and by PW they were more mature and had unlimited resources for recording.

I think Presto is last...terrible wimpy anti-septic sound. Although SnA will get some flames for Nick's overcooking.

Fly By Night wins here easily ..

But as much as I love FBN, it isn't quite in my Top 5

Presto is the dud

I tried to like SnA and musically I do.  Lyrically it's just too much of a rant for me.  Presto feels mailed in but at least it's not overly obssesive lyrically.

Power Windows for the first two and Presto, barely over FBN.

Good question here. Snakes & Arrows and Power Windows are among the best albums ever released by the band. Fly By Night, although a significant improvement over debut, is still mostly mired in that early Led Zeppelin clone sound. Presto suffers from bad production and a huge drop off in songwriting from the halcyon synth era albums, but is still good; I would rank it as the 10th best album. Certainly not top 5 like Snakes & Arrows and Power Windows.
