Kayo Dot Ranked

Spent most of 2018 listening to Kayo Dot, Kate Bush and Gazpacho instead of actual new music. Tell me if my ranking of Kayo Dot is garbage
9Kayo Dot
Gamma Knife


Never really got into this album, the vocals are too far back in the mix and nothing really stuck with me. Feels like a draft of Hubardo that was never fully realized
Best song: Ocellated God
Worst song: Lethe
8Kayo Dot
Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue


This is the record I've listened to the least in the list; feels like a follow up to Choirs of the Eye but without the same emotional resonance. I do need to give it more spins, admittedly
Best song: ___On Limpid Form
Worst song: Amaranth the Peddler
7Kayo Dot
Stained Glass


Really like the use of xylophones (or glockenspiels?) in this one
Best song: Stained Glass
Worst song: uh.... Stained Glass?
6Kayo Dot
Coyote


Sp00py record
Best song: Calonyction GIrl
Worst song: Abyss Hinge 1: Sleeping Birds Sighing in Roscolux
5Kayo Dot
Blue Lambency Downward


Perhaps one of the 'lighter' KD records? I really like the use of woodwinds on this one
Best song: The Awkward Wind Wheel
Worst song: The Sow Submits
4Kayo Dot
Plastic House on Base of Sky


To heck with the haters, I really like this new psychedelic / electronic arrangement
Best song: Amalia's Theme
Worst song: Magnetism
3Kayo Dot
Choirs of the Eye


I know it's objectively considered their best, but I never really was taken by Toby's fragile / gentle vocals in this record. Brilliant record though, and The Manifold Curiosity is one of the best songs I've ever heard, but there's something about the two records above this that I love more.
Best song: The Manifold Curiosity
Worst song: Wayfarer
2Kayo Dot
Coffins on Io


Love the moody and spacey atmosphere - and probably my favourite clean Toby vocals
Best song: The Mortality of Doves
Worst song: The Assassination of Adam
1Kayo Dot
Hubardo


Absolutely bonkers record - it's got everything: black metal, jazz fusion, goth rock, chamber music. It's like Choirs of the Eye but even more ambitious
Best song: The Wait of the World
Worst song: Floodgate
