I would've picked Second Heat instead of Street Lethal because I think Racer X's second album was much better.
Some could say Superheroes would have been preferable to Technical Difficulties... but the latter has more tracks, and is almost as good as the former so I think either albums is a good choice.

Joe Bosso has it right. Career-defining is a much better word choice then favorite. I didn't want to rip off his headline for the topic subject though. [guess] Paul would probably tell us that all of the albums he's made are his favorites! [/guess] So, career-defining is definitely a better choice of words. Please go by that.

Whilst I'll forever rave about Alligator Farm, Burning Organ is definitely more 'career-defining' and more representative of Paul as a solo artist.

And I'm glad to see he picked Technical Difficulties over Superheroes. I think the former is the best sounding and most consistent Racer X record, whereas the latter feels more 'tongue in cheek'.

Definitely agree with all of Paul's picks.

Street Lethal is what helped put him on the map.

I also think Technical Difficulties is the better of the newer releases. There's something about it that just screams renewed enthusiasm and power. The album just sounds massive.

Burning Organ would be my favourite PG solo vocal album too. I see now why I believe this based on what PG said about it. It just accumulates all that is PG in one cohesive album.
