Like others on this thread, I won't use "best" or "worst" because this is personal preference, not objective quality.  I will list things I love versus things I skip (and not list the in-betweens).


THREE IMAGINARY BOYS
I can't comment as we don't have this yet, but I really like the title track in current live performances.

SEVENTEEN SECONDS
Ditto, but I haven't disliked anything I have heard live off this.  (Which doesn't necessarily correlate with liking the studio versions.)

FAITH
Unable to comment, other than I very much like the recent live versions of Primary but not earlier ones.

PORNOGRAPHY
While we don't have this yet (it's on its way), we do have Trilogy, which creates a favourable impression of it.  At this house, we both definitely ♥ One Hundred Years.

THE TOP
Shake Dog Shake, The Empty World, The Top
Skip - possibly Bananafishbones

THE HEAD ON THE DOOR
Sinking, Push
Skip - nothing in particular

KISS ME KISS ME KISS ME
♥ pretty much the whole album - but especially The Kiss, Catch, Torture, If Only Tonight We Could Sleep, The Snakepit, All I Want, Like Cockatoos, The Perfect Girl
Skip - How Beautiful You Are, Just Like Heaven

DISINTEGRATION
♥ pretty much the whole album, but especially Plainsong, Pictures Of You, Lullaby, Fascination Street, Disintegration
Skip - nothing in particular - if anything, sometimes Prayers For Rain

WISH
Don't have this yet - it's on its way.  But I ♥ Letter To Elise, From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea, Apart live and can already tell you I'm going to skip Friday I'm In Love on this studio album.

WILD MOOD SWINGS
Jupiter Crash, Treasure, Want
Skip - Mint Car, The 13th, Strange Attraction, Return

BLOODFLOWERS
♥♥♥ this whole album - especially Watching Me Fall, Where The Birds Always Sing, There Is No If, The Loudest Sound
Skip - nothing

THE CURE
Don't have this yet - it's on its way.  But I ♥ Us Or Them live, and have a feeling I may skip a few tracks when I get to know this one.

4:13 DREAM
Underneath The Stars, The Only One, The Hungry Ghost (but better live), The Reasons Why, The Scream
Skip - The Real Snow White, Sirensong


JOIN THE DOTS
A Japanese Dream, Breathe, A Chain Of Flowers, To The Sky, Babble, 2 Late, Fear Of Ghosts, Harold And Joe, This Twilight Garden, The Big Hand, Purple Haze (loud version), Burn, Wrong Number, Possession
Skip - most of CD-1, though I periodically give it another shot; also Young Americans, Hello I Love You (all of them), How Beautiful You Are, Dredd Song, A Pink Dream
SueC is time travelling
