What do you think is Roger's best album (excluding 'The Cross') and WHY?

Mine is 'Happiness?', as it a) contains protest songs and is highly political and b) because it's a coherent album which doesn't fall to pieces because of a lousy song-order.

Strange Frontier is a close second though!

Well, I have to go for Happiness? too. But only because that album has a meaning for me personally. Brings back memories of one of the happiest periods in my life ;-)

Strange Frontier indeed is a good number two. Some outstanding songs but also some crap. The other ones? Sorry, but the songwriting on Fun in Space (although pretty cool as a cult-thing) and especially Electric Fire is way way below standard!

Go ahead, shoot me! I know some of you will ;-)))

Fun In Space - though the others come very near that. My least favourite is probably Strange Frontier - never liked some of the songs on side B (Young Love, It's An Illusion, Abandonfire).

I like to listen to Happiness? whilst driving on long trips. Fun In Space and Electric Fire hype me up and make me want to dance!

I quite like Electric Fire but it would go a bit far to say that's his best....it's again all a matter of personal taste I think, no?

I still need to get Electric Fire, but for now, my favorite is Happiness?. I love almost every song on there, and it's got good variety and great lyrics.

Happiness - although it took a long time to grow on me.


Yes, it's me. I'm back.

Loved Fun in space and Strange Frontier back in the 80's when they came out. I must admit I don't really listen to them anymore. I never liked Happniness? when it was released but loved Electric Fire instantly. Now only recently I started to listen to Happiness? and it really starts to grow on me (but slowly..)

Not too familiar with Roger's albums(yet),but I LOVE "I'm In Love With My Car".

I have to go with "Electric Fire". Great songs (The Whisperers, Pressure On, Where Are You Now) and great sound.

I just got Fun In Space in the mail today; it was even better than I expected.
