    I like these choices, but for personal reasons I'll make

    The opening notes/keyboard and guitar parts on Changes get me every time.

    Talk by a mile for me but 90125 is likely a bigger accomplishment musically. I just love Endless Dreams and several other tracks.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    90125 was a great, great pop record. Big Generator, Union and Talk were just awful. Tired, unoriginal and definitely not good.

    Big Generator aged well. yeah the title track is a mess, but parts of it were interesting. they should have had a co-producer instead of producing it themselves.

    90125 is an excellent album. Its not going to make anyone forget CTTE, Fragile etc but it is a pop/rock album done very well. The other three from the Rabin era are all hit and miss affairs. I would order them as

    90125
    Union
    Talk
    Big Generator

    To be fair, I haven't listened to the last two in decades. I'll spin BG tonight

    Please do.

    For me it would be:

    90125
    Big Generator
    Talk
    Union


    Hold On
    I'm Running
    Final Eyes
    The Calling
    Leave It

    BG is a lot better than its reputation would suggest, IMO. I still come back to that one a lot. Union is the most uneven of the bunch (for me), but even that one I've hung onto because it still has some very strong stuff. I enjoy it at least!

    Revisited BG and Talk and the former is still just a 3 song album but Talk was better than I remembered. It is a tossup for for the second best of the four albums but I'll stay with Union.
