I cant remember if i did this on the old board but we can do it again.  List your favourite opening tracks from the 8 albums.

1. Block Rockin Beats
2. Come With Us
3.Galvanize
4 .Music:Response
5. Sometimes I feel so deserted
6. Leave Home
7.Snow
8. No path to follow/WATN

yes leave home is down there but i love the others so much

I've never looked at a list of them all in one. It's impressive. And tough to order. But...

1. Come With Us
2. Music: Response
3. No Path To Follow/WATN
4. Leave Home
5. Block Rockin' Beats
6. Snow
7. Galvanize

I haven't heard BITE yet so I can't speak for how well SIFSD works as an opener.
And the rest of the list is very much down to how well the track sets up the rest of the album for me. As in, when I hear CWU I immediately want to hear the rest of the album. Which is why the obviously excellent older tunes are so low down. They work better (for me) as standalone tracks and doesn't necessarily add to the narrative of the album by being first. Though I'm saying that now and not exactly agreeing with myself.
VERY TOUGH.

In terms of straight up how much I love the song. Swap Snow and Galvanize at the bottom there.

1 - Block Rockin' Beats
2 - Leave Home
3 - ...and the rest - all very cool

Every one is a great opening track for its respective album and era.  Some are stronger because they are opening tracks, such as No Path To Follow/WATN or Snow. As soon as the first :01 seconds of Snow comes on, it puts me in the mood for Further.  Others, like Music Response, sound good on any playlist at any time.
Uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

1 -  Block Rockin' Beats

Come with us is definitely the best experience i have had of hearing a new track when they dj'd.  The album wasnt due out for yonks and they played cream and started with that and the roof nearly came off, they teased it for ages, my wife still says she's never seen me smile wider than that.

Spoiler alert. It's The Private Psychedelic Reel.

(Unless maybe someone got bad mojo on the Reel. Then maybe Surface to Air).

I also omitted SIFSD, due to the sad lack of Chemical album in my mailbox.

7. Block Rockin Beats

I kinda think of No Path to Follow as a part of We Are the Night.
Not counting No Path to Follow just cause it's short and ambient is like not couting Harpoons... and Harpoons is awesome.

Also, I don't know a whole lot about Chem history, but I got the impression that Block Rockin Beats is really revered. Just hearing the audience reaction when it played at the end of Don't Think, which was the first time I'd ever heard the song, it was like "Whoah, everyone just went crazy!" It probably doesn't look good that I place it so low, but what can I say, I really love all these songs!
The devil is in the details

Yeah Block Rockin Beats is HUGE! You must be young. Off the top of my head it was their second UK No 1 single.
I can't be bothered to do all of them but my top 3 openers would be:
Leave Home, Block Rockin Beats and Come With Us.
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

1. Snow
2. Music - Response
3. We Are The Night
4. Come With Us
5. SIFSD
6. Galvanize
7. Block Rockin Beats
8. Leave Home

*disclaimer: subject to change at random
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Leave Home
Snow
No Path/We Are The Night
Block Rockin Beats
SIFSD
Come with us
Music response
Galvanize

really thought SIFSD would get more love than this but i guess its not stood time test yet, i think its a fucking amazing statement of intent. love it.
never had that much love for leave home, i remember it getting panned when it came out as the first chems single in the press, maybe cos they knew it would sell or just lazy journalism but compared to some of the previous dust brothers releases its not as good but have grown to love it a bit more.
