Rank the studio album by best track

So just use your favourite track or two tracks on each album to rank them

Here I go. I did it without taking into account the b-sides, otherwise it would be quite different:

1. The Holy Bible
(IfWhiteAmerica)
(Archives Of Pain)

2. Know Your Enemy

(So why so sad)
(We Are All Bourgeois Now)

3. Gold Against the Soul
(Sleepflower)
(La Tristesse Durera (Scream To A Sigh)

4. Lifeblood
(The Love Of Richard Nixon)
(I Live To Fall Asleep)

5. Generation Terrorists
(Motorcycle Emptiness)
(Another Invented Disease)

6. Everything Must Go
(No Surface All Feeling)
(Elvis Impersonator: Blackpool Pier)

7.This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours
(Nobody Loved You)
(Born A Girl)

8. Futurology
(Dreaming a City)
(Black Square)

9. Send Away The Tigers
(Your Love Alone Is Not Enough)
(Imperial Bodybags)

10. Journal For Plague Lovers
(All Is Vanity)
(Me And Stephen Hawking)

11. Postcards From A Young Man
(The Future Has Been Here 4Ever)
(A Billion Balconies Facing The Sun)

12. Rewind The Film
Show Me The Wonder
As Holy As The Soil (That Buries Your Skin)

If I had to rank them by considering just one track the first ones would be KYE (So why...),GT (Motorcycle..), and GATS (Sleepflower), those three tracks make the most beautiful soundtrack..

Faster
2(2) Everything Must Go
A Design For Life
Enola/Alone
3(5) Generation Terrorists
Motorcycle Emptiness
Little Baby Nothing
4(11) Gold Against The Soul
Sleepflower
From Despair To Where
5(4) Futurology
Between The Clock And The Bed
The Last Time I Saw Paris
6(3) Journal For Plague Lovers

She Bathed Herself In A Bath of Bleech
7(12) Know Your Enemy

8(7) This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours

9(6) Lifeblood
1985
Solitude Sometimes Is
10(10) Send Away The Tigers

Send Away The Tigers
11(9) Rewind The Film

30 Year War
12(8) Postcards From A Young Man

The number in brackets next to the album corresponds to my ranking on the whole album thread, though as many have said that changes daily too! Many pinches of salt needed!
