Thread: What was Fish's high water mark for you?

  1. #26
    You can’t beat his lyrics and the music and melodies on his debut. For a million albums now I’ve bought his output hoping he’d top it but Fish is only ever as good as the writers he’s working with it would seem.

    I think "Raingods" is under rated. It rarely gets mentioned in favorite Fish threads, but I think it is a solid album.

    Probably my 2nd favorite. And sonically, one of the best albums I've heard.

    Interesting... I've only got a couple Fish albums, but was curious about Raingods. Maybe I should check that one out next.

    The Suite wins it, and is among his best efforts, but at least 2 of the prior tracks are pretty good too.

    I haven’t waded into this yet, but I agree Raingods is kind of underrated. A few of the songs on it always sound better than I remember when I listen. Yeah, the suite is great, “Tilted Cross” is great, “Tumbledown” and “Mission Statement” are solid songs I always enjoy.

    It’s a colorful album, somehow.

    Isn't Raingods OOP?

    There's a recent 3-disk reissue of it.

    Raingods is okay, my least fave is the epic.

    Of the first five proper albums, it's fifth in my personal order:
    - Vigil 1a
    - Sunsets 1b

    - Internal Exile
    - Suits

    - Raingods...

    But tons of awesome stuff in those five.
    No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

    I like it, but the songs are much better live.

    The Raingods suite was great live. That was a great show.

    I found the remastered version of Raingods and it included a couple live versions of "Plague"
