Big fan, as you can probably tell from my username. (Also, awesome points for anyone who recognizes my avatar)
If I were to rank their albums (including Come On Pilgrim) it would go something like:
1. Doolittle
2. Surfer Rosa
3. Come On Pilgrim
4. Trompe le Monde
5. Bossanova

Explanation for the ranking: Doolittle and Surfer Rosa are my definite favourites, but the reason I put Doolittle the highest, is partly because I think it works better as a whole and that my average enjoyment of the tracks are a bit higher, I guess. I'm not altogether sure which one I like best out of Come On Pilgrim and Trompe le Monde, so I basically went with my gut feeling, but they could easily be put the other way around. Bossanova is decidedly my least favourite since it has a few tracks that I don't care for all too much, and none of the other albums has any.

Favourite songs overall (in no particular order):
Monkey Gone to Heaven
Velouria
Where Is My Mind?
River Euphrates (An underrated song in their catalogue in my opinion)
Ed Is Dead
I Bleed
No. 13 Baby
Letter to Memphis
Gigantic
Caribou

Best reunion song, sure.

EP2 was released last Friday. Might be more solid than EP1 but nothing that strikes me as awesome quite yet.

Doolittle album, that's for sure a really splendid album.
