Being in the library has let me revisit old bands and their albums and listen to them in almost silence, giving me a fucking great listening experience.
I revisited TVOTR's albums 'Deperate Youth' 'Return to Cookie Mountain' and 'Dear Science'.
I reckon it goes:
Actually I think Dear Science isn't even on the same plateau as the other two, and Desperate is phenomenally good and was very close to beating Return.
In fact, depending on the day, I prefer Desperate.
