Voted for Sewer , though I think 2 not mentioned are up there with the best .... Toiler and Hanging Around .
Time to Die is also worthy ..... probably the only positive recognition JE might get , showed that technically he was /is a very good guitarist .

I picked "other"- Two Sunspots.

To me this odd backwards take on a solo embodied all I loved about the Stranglers inventions when that album came out.

.......most off-the-wall guitar work IMO has to be all through Hallow to Our Men. I'd defy Hugh to go back and work that tangle out. It is fucking awesome stuff.

Also love all the motifs in Top Secret. He was at his most creative form during the MIB stuff. The Raven work was a taste of things to come. The overlapping guitar riff on Barokie Bordello is top bollocks too!

Didn't vote for any of the choices here but Heroes, Hanging Around, Curfew and Threatened deserve a mention.
Isolate the critisism and pass it on.
