(18.2% awesome, 45.5% good, 27.3% OK, meh, 9.1% skip out of 11)

2 AWESOME

least complicated

TOUCH ME FALL (whoa those instrumentals!)

This album was before my time, so I never really got into it like I might have. I do think it’s their prettiest album cover, and I’d like to see more like this…

UNPOPULAR opinion: I think these 3 songs are over-rated. They are big hits at concerts, and I’m just not that into them. Also, for these song rankings, I listened to the album, ranking each song. Then after space and time I re-listened, and ranked again without looking at the first results. Then I rectified both lists and any songs that were different in 1 and 2 were listened to a 3rd time. If any song was 2 positions apart (example 1st listen ranked good 2nd listen ranked meh) I split the difference (example song would be ranked OK). So I didn’t just throw this list together is what I’m saying.

Gosh! This album isn’t my favorite (I don’t think–I haven’t actually done the math yet) but these songs are conducive to a LIVE show. They are AMAZING sing-alongs and I’ve seen them hit hard at many concerts.
