Limited myself to 3 from each of the first 3 albums (otherwise 100 Broken Windows would just dominate it), then 3 from the other 2 I remember well enough. Idea Track outro is a lifelong earworm. I really liked Make Another World at the time, not the album I expected from them after Warnings/Promises.

I ought to revisit Post-Electric Blues and the rarities soon.

Hope is Important, but swap out the last three songs for Captain, These Wooden Ideas, and Roseability.

Anyone who doesn’t put ‘Love Steals Us From Lonliness’ on this is a daft cunt.
