Ranking favourite bands: Best Leprous Albums

My personal ranking of all of Leprous's studio albums hitherto (17/07/2019) released. This band hasn't released a single poor album in my opinion, so this list was a real difficult exercise for me, especially considering all of their albums are of such a high quality and share many of the same qualities.
Tall Poppy Syndrome

Although I'm sure this debut album is loved by many a Leprous listener, for me it never really elicited anything close to glee whilst I was listening to it. I can't quite figure out as to why this is the case, however I must recognize the talent and musical ability on display on this album. A fine record by any means.

Leprous's latest latest effort, is by all means an excellent record. One could argue it's once again a slightly less impressive iteration of their previous works, however it still contains so many excellent compositions, especially the song Mirage.

Although this effort, to me at least, feels like a slightly worse version of The Congregation in many was, this still entails it's an excellent Leprous record. It features the same progressive subtleties, fantastic compositions and amazing vocal and instrumental work that I love about this band.
The Congregation

This was the album that originally turned me on to Leprous and it was the first album of theirs that I purchased a physical copy of. It was also my favourite work of theirs for a very long time. Although it may not be as grandiose as Bilateral, this album is still fantastically composed and features some amazing tracks: Slave and Third Law especially blew me away.

This album is absolutely incredible in so many ways. From the massively epic compositions, to the extremely creative experimental elements, the amazing vocals and the generally admirable musicianship. Simply fantastic in every way imaginable, bordering on masterpiece.
