Ranked: Therapy? - Worst To Best

Here is a purely subjective list of how I would rank Therapy?'s albums worst to best!

Shameless


Shameless is definitely my least favourite release by the band; it's a very straightforward and uninteresting sounding album that has never had me appreciating it. It's only saved from being a total flop by the very last track, some of the others are ok but it's not enough to keep me listening to it. My top 3 from Shameless - 1. Stalk & Slash 2. I Am The Money 3. Dance

One Cure Fits All


Many people regard this as the band's weakest output; many of the choruses here merely consist of the same line repeated three or four times and the album as a whole is pretty dull. For me, the only thing that makes this being better than 'Shameless' is a handful of decent tracks. My top 3 from One Cure Fits All - 1. Walk Through Darkness 2. Rain Hits Concrete 3. Into The Light

Crooked Timber


A lot of fans really dig Crooked Timber, but after trying many times I still haven't grasped it. It has an almost tangible heaviness to it, excellent production and a decent 10 minute-plus instrumental. Yet, on the whole I find this album to be fairly boring, but I still haven't given up on it. My top 3 from Crooked Timber - 1. Bad Excuse For Daylight 2. Enjoy The Struggle 3. Magic Mountain (odd how my favourite track from my 3 least favourite albums is the last track...)

Caucasian Psychosis


Now, this almost cheating but it counts to me. Caucasian Psychosis is basically a compilation of the first two mini-albums 'Babyteeth' and 'Pleasure Death' and it seemed the best way for me to obtain those two when buying the bands back catalogue. This album is good to see Therapy? at their sludgey and noisey roots stage, but their sound is a little underdeveloped here. Still, it's essential and an interesting listen. My top 3 from Caucasian Psychosis - 1. Skyward 2. Meat Abstract 3. Potato Junkie

High Anxiety


I found High Anxiety to be very disappointing upon the first listen and the song 'Hey Satan - You Rock' has always irritated me. But, subsequent revisits have unveiled a handful of very decent tracks that keep this album afloat for me. My top 3 from High Anxiety - 1. Rust 2. Last Blast 3. Who Knows

Never Apologise Never Explain


This is another album that arrived during Therapy?'s early 00's slump amidst 'One Cure...', 'High Anxiety' and 'Shameless'. "Slump" was actually way too harsh but NANE is definitely my favourite album of that bunch. It may have a slight lack in variety but it remains a solid collection of punchy tunes. My top 3 from Never Apologise Never Explain - 1. Panic 2. Save The Sermon 3. Here Be Monsters

A Brief Crack Of Light


Now to start being more positive. The band's latest output displayed that they have far from given up and is one of their greatest albums for some time. ABCOL did leave me wanting a little bit more but it definitely didn't have me questioning my faith in the band. My top 3 from A Brief Crack Of Light - 1. Why Turbulence 2. Living In The Shadow Of A Terrible Thing 3. Plague Bell

Semi-Detached


Semi-Detached, similar to 'ABCOL' did leave me wanting that little bit more and maybe even a little disappointed upon first listen. Since then, numerous revisits have edged the album within my top five Therapy? albums. Semi-Detached is full of very, very catchy songs and is also the last Therapy? album to possess what a reviewer on here described as the invaluable and inimitable 90's feel - something I totally agree with. My top 3 from Semi-Detached - 1. Don't Expect Roses 2. Straight Life 3. The Boy's Asleep
4Therapy?
Nurse


Nurse is a very caustic and loose sounding album. It comes across as an almost industrial or remixed version of the band but still shows massive development from the 'Babyteeth' and 'Pleasure Death' days. Nurse has definitely remained Therapy?'s most uniquely interesting album and should not go unnoticed. My top 3 from Nurse - 1. Teethgrinder 2. Perversonality 3. Zipless
3Therapy?
Suicide Pact - You First


Therapy?'s fifth studio release bares one of the most twisted album titles ever, so it's fitting that it's also the bands most demented album and Cairn's vocals have never sounded so insane. This is definitely the bands last truly essential/classic release and I suspect that picking a top 3 tracks may be difficult. My top 3 from Suicide Pact - You First - 1. Hate Kill Destroy 2. He's Not That Kind Of Girl 3. Little Tongues First

Infernal Love


Some fans don't rate this album whereas some say it's Therapy?'s best. Personally, I love it. I love how the band could have easily milked their successes but instead they released this slab of depression, fused together with chaotic soundscapes, the aforementioned 90's feel and semi-ballads. Infernal Love is a phenomenal album. My top 3 from - Infernal Love 1. Loose 2. Stories 3. A Moment Of Clarity

Troublegum


I hate to not surprise, but Troublegum is Troublegum, an album which sits firmly within my top 10 of all time. This album is dripping with that familiar 90's vibe making it unrelentingly catchy and the production is perfect. It is also seething with pessimism and contains some pretty insane lyrics. I'm not going to pick a top three here because it isn't necessary - Troublegum is flawless.
