Cannot speak for the debut as I am not familiar with it, and when I have played it all seemed good.

FLY BY NIGHT:
By-Tor And The Snow Dog
Rivendell
In The End
(I am not at all a fan of this album, but the songs I enjoy, I do really enjoy. Fly By Night is full of songs that burst with life onstage, but fall flat in the studio. But these three songs really do not do anything for me. Sorry Narpski.)

2112:
n/a

A Farewell To Kings:
n/a

Hemispheres:
n/a

Permanent Waves:
n/a

Moving Pictures:
n/a

Signals:
Subdivisions
Chemistry
Digital Man
(I actually enjoy the album on occasion but in all honesty, I don't love it. These songs are not bad, just very average to my ears, especially compared to the albums that came directly before and after it.)

Grace Under Pressure:
n/a

Power Windows:
n/a

Hold Your Fire:
n/a

Presto:
n/a

Roll The Bones:
Face Up
Where's My Thing
Heresy
Neurotica
You Bet Your Life
(All in all, my vote for the bands very worst album. Some good stuff on this album, such as the first three songs, cannot make up for the dirty brown nuggets of the majority of the later tracks. And all in all, any good qualities are airbrushed by the phenomenally bland production that reeks of nineties pop music, and I mean the Backstreet Boys kind.)

Counterparts:
Stick It Out
(A very mediocre album, but I actually like all the songs but this one. I HATE THIS SONG. The album is bland, but decent. This song is just...bleugh...)

Test For Echo:
Half The World
Totem
Dog Years
Virtuality
(This album is actually very average, but I do enjoy the album as a whole. But these songs have the most offensively bad lyrics, and despite quite enjoying these songs, they are definitley skippers, and alongside the RTB tracks and Stick It Out, the worst on this list.)

Vapor Trails:
Freeze
Out Of The Cradle
(I love this album, but I would cut these two songs and let the album finish on the phenomenal Nocturne. I don't hate them, but they really do not appeal to me.)

Snakes And Arrows:
(Every track. I rarely play this album, and when I do I find only minor enjoyment in the musicality, but not the songs themselves. The musicianship and stellar production save this album from being my least favourite, but the songs drag it down to a bottom two position.)

Clockwork Angels:
The Anarchist
Carnies
Halo Effect
(This album is not aging well, and after my initial enthusiasm for this album, I find even the best to be only decent to good, and the worst, these three, utterly forgettable. And for those who are convinced it is metal, good for you. But like any genre, metal has its fair share of turgid junk, and the belief in this album belonging in the same genre as Master Of Puppets or Powerslave does not mean that it deserves similar praise. Some good moments, but terrible production and bland melodies make this album close to a true stinker. Heavy Metal? More like scrap metal.)

The Fountain Of Lamneth
Madrigal
Tai Shan
High Water
Chain Lightning
Scars
Alien Shore
The Speed Of Love
Double Agent
Cold Fire
Everyday Glory
Totem
Virtuality

Most of this is spot on but Here Again and the COS stuff just no no no. I kind of like Chain Lighting and Cold Fire too but the others I mentioned are in a different league in my opinion...

Edit: I like Scars too. How can you not?

Gotta get you on the Here Again bandwagon however. Great tune with one of the best guitar solos in their catalog in my view. The Caress Of Steel stuff is a given. Gotta dig that too...

I do like Here Again now, The Necromancer is okay, and I like Didacts and Narpets, No One At The Bridge, and Bacchus Plateau, but the other parts bore me. I also like Madrigal, Chain Lightning, Everyday Glory, and Ceiling Unlimited.
