It may be a little too early to do this definitively but here's where I think it currently sits:

1. Behaviour
2. Very
3. Actually
4. Introspective
5. Electric
6. Fundamental
7. Yes
8. Super
9. Bilingual
10. Nightlife
11. Please
12. Elysium
13. Release

I would add two things. Firstly, there's not a single PSB album that I don't think is excellent. They are just different degrees of excellence. And secondly Electric-Fundamental-Yes-Super sequence is incredibly close. There's very little between those records in my opinion in that all four are strong, coherent and just all round brilliant records. Electric narrowly wins over this four because it has Thursday/Love is a bourgeois construct/Vocal which are three unbelievably strong songs.
I'm always waiting...

It's good, but it will be between number 9 and 13, probably. It's hard to beet Suburbia, King' Cross or This Must be the place.

Love comes quickly, but is a catastrophe and a bourgeois construct etc.

I'm sure I've walked down that street, it's in Stockholm! There wasn't a girl standing there at the time holding a Super vinyl though, as it was several years ago.

I've never attempted to rank the Pet Shop Boys albums in order of favourite; the thought of doing that literally gives me a headache. But I'd imagine Super would be somewhere in the middle of my non-existent list. It has no absolute classic songs for me, but it also has no abysmal moments. It's a consistently good to very-good album.

Most people rank it as 7 or so.
It's still too early for me to rank it.

What is very interesting is that most people were saying "Electric" was their best album in years (I don't share that view by the way) yet now on the lists in this thread it is way down the pecking order.....

Any way here is my current chart

1. Actually
2. Please
3. Fundamental
4. Very
5. Introspective
6. Elysium
7. Behaviour
8. Yes
9. Super
10. Release
11. Bilingual
12. Nightlife
13. Electric

It was a cough that carried him off. It was a coffin they carried him off in.
