This is a travesty.  CoS is top 5

A smidge outside of my top 5, 6th in fact, but now higher than Presto or GUP!

:o

That surprises me...only because I know how much you love those records.

VT and CoS did some brutal damage to my top five!

Damage...haha. That's funny.

Obviously it hasn't affected my love for Presto is GUP. They are beautiful albums.

I'll say something that may well get me cyber-lynched...but I think a song like Between the Wheels is just as heavy as is The Necromancer. Both thematically and sonically. Yes. I said it!

And I like The Body Electric almostcas much as Red Barchetta!

I don't really feel that either song is heavy in a sonic sense.  Topically BtW is heavier than necromancer since it's about real shit.  Necromancer is fantasy

CoS has the wonderful Bastille Day and Lakeside Park plus the ok I Think I'm Going Bald.  The other 2 songs on the album I strongly dislike.

CA starts slow and most of the album is "brick walled".  The recording is better than the original mix for VT but it could be greatly improved.

Than with the wonderful Halo Effect the album takes off.  On good song after another.  Halo Effect, 7 Cities of Gold, The Wreckers, Headlong Flight, Wish Them Well, The Garden.

Despite the recording issues and the slow start (i.e. some songs at the start that are, at best, sort of ok) CA gets my vote easily.
