I'd probably go for The Underfall Yard, or one of the English Electric ones, but Ant would know better.

Mew and IQ are both pretty good.

The best Big Big Train album is a tie between The Underfall Yard and the English Electric: Full Power compilation. They've done some new albums since these two, but they are both fabulous albums that sound like a modernized take on the Genesis sound going up to And Then There Were Three...

And there's an argument to be made that BBT are actually the only real successor we have to Genesis today anyway, because lead vocalist David Longdon was the guy who auditioned against Ray Wilson back in the mid 90's for the frontman spot after Collins jumped ship. David didn't get picked obviously, but he ended up fronting BBT a little over a decade later instead. How's that for karma?

So I was right, then. I would add GTTAOS though.

I meant the song but put your money where your mouth is and do a top ten. I think that song is daft.
