From the Choirgirl Hotel.. it was more pop-friendly than her other albums, and being not so big of a fan of her's, I liked it more than the others.. Little Earthquakes follows close behind.

Under the pink. One of her purest albums and by far her best. And seeing that list I just realized that I own all her albums except for the three last ones. As a casual fan, am I missing something?

I'll plump for Under The Pink because it contains "Yes, Anastasia", which I consider to be one of the best songs ever written.

All her albums have their good qualities, however.

I voted for Little Earthquakes cos that's my fav at the moment but to be honest my opinion changes on her albums everytime I listen to each of them, one moment Little Earthquakes is the best then Under The Pink is, then Boys For Pele...and so on. For now I'll say Little Earthquakes

'Under The Pink' is my favourite though there's plenty of merit on all her albums.

Joris, I think you'd find 'Scarlet's Walk' and 'The Beekeeper' a little pedestrian. I've not played them too much and think I've got them more for completist reasons more than anything, though her vocals and melodies on 'Scarlet's Walk' are really good.

With the exception of 'The Beekeeper' I love all of her albums.

I love all of her albums, but I chose From the choirgirl hotel, especially because of Spark, Jackie's strength and the amazing Northern Lad.

So I should give Strange little girls a try?

I'm having a real hard time to vote as i love all albums. I'm gonna vote for Scarlet's Walk cos it is, imo, a magnificent piece of work. Lyrically, musically.. and i love the artwork and the atmosphere of the whole album.

Plus it contains the amazing A Sorta Fairytale and Taxi Ride.
