    1. Your living I’ve played it at least once a week since I got it. Tied with forever changes as my favorite album ever. Rasains is my favorite Dino track ever.
    2. Where you been- sounds so much different then any other recording I had/have ever heard.it has such a sad atmosphere to it. Drawerings is in my second favorite Dino tune.
    3. Farm- this album still gets tons of play
    4. Beyond- was blown away that the reunion went so well
    5. Dinosaur-I’ve always thought it was such an underrated album. Forget the swan, bulbs of passion, quest, severed lips, and repulsion are some of my favorite Dino songs.
    6 green mind-Feel bad ranking it so low, I love this album
    7.bug- love love love no bones, wish the album had more tracks,especially since don’t is almost like an instrumental
    8. Hand it over-probably don’t play this as much as I should
    9. Without a sound- over yer shoulder is so great, but the album seems like it was rushed to me

    I could, maybe, re-order the top 5 if I really thought about it, but those are my top 5, too.

    YLAOM, Bug, Green Mind, and Where you Been are the big ones. Dinosaur cause it’s the first. Then the rest in no order.

    Where You Been is probably my favorite album. Green Mind was the first album I ever owned or theirs in 1991. I put YLAOM and Bug up there out of respect for their place in the catalog of Dinosaurs’ music. They would land 3,4 on my actual favorites, they’re up there! Dinosaur is there in position of respect and would probably rank after Without a Sound for me.

    I’m a bit surprised (and happy) to see Farm get so much respect. It’s a good album and “I Don’t Want to go There” is one of my favorites ever, but Farm hasn’t dug into me like that yet. Maybe I should listen to it again. Anyways, I’m happy you all like it enough to rank it 5th all time. I still love the 90’s, though Hand it Over took a while to grow on me….

    2. Hand it Over
    3. I Bet On Sky
    4. Where You Been

    6. Beyond
    7. Farm

    Included the Fog albums in italics. I though it’d be unfair to include SSOW since it’s completely different from all the rest being an all acoustic record.

    1. You’re Living All Over Me
    2. Dinosaur
    3. More Light
    4. Bug
    5. Beyond
    6. Free So Free
    7. Farm
    8. Where You Been?
    9. Without a Sound
    10. Hand It Over
    11. Green Mind (Am I the only one who can’t get into this album?)
