Early Song Rankings

Just because people will get riled up at the fact that we're ranking all 13 songs too soon without hearing it in full quality. Pinch of salt yeah?

1 - Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way
2 - You're The Best Thing About Me
3 - The Blackout
4 - The Showman (Little More Better)
5 - 13 (There Is A Light)
6 - Love Is All We Have Left
7 - The Little Things That Give You Away
8 - Get Out Of Your Own Way
9 - Lights Of Home
10 - Summer Of Love
11 - Red Flag Day
12 - Landlady
13 - American Soul

I’d say American Soul is my least favorite.

Again, need to hear everything in better quality but I think that’ll probably end up holding true.

Hmmm... tough to be objective when it's so fresh and hasn't had time to fully digest, but here's a first blush ordering:

The Little Things
The Showman
Summer of Love
Blackout
Landlady
Lights of Home
Love is Bigger
Red Flag Day
13
Love is All We Have Left
The Best Thing
Get Out Of Your Own Way
American Soul

Agreed that American Soul is easily at the bottom. I'm really enjoying the rest - they're tough to rank.

I need to hear a better rip and let the songs fit in with the already released material because I really love Get Out Of Your Own Way and Blackout, but the excitement is too high regarding the rest of the album.

With that said, Love Is Bigger and Little Things are clearly standouts for me.

Summer Of Love has like a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack vibe to it. Different in a way for the band but I don’t think it’s necessarily a great tune.

It's probably the only song that hasn't grabbed me through a few listens. Probably means it will be my favourite!

THe standouts for me are:
Love is all we have left
Book of your heart
Lights of home (string version)
Summer of love
Red flag day

But my favorite so far are:
Book of your heart
Lights (string version)

This may very well change esp since I listened only 3 times to a less than perfect quality rip.

How have you heard Book of your heart, and where can we hear it?

The showman has me up and moving. Above and beyond the best song on the album.

Well.... it s a tough call. Have been listening to the album all day long. No weak track , that s 2 albums in a row.

First day ranking: (7 listenings)

1. The little things that gave you away (most u2 ish but the only one that gives me goosebumps and makes me weird... so beautiful)
2. Red flag day (is this band really close to 60?!)
3. The Blackout (loved that song from the start)

Then it gets too difficult.... The next 4 songs are at the moment on the same scale...

4-7. Lights of home
4-7. Summer of love
4-7. The Showman
4-7. Love is bigger than anything in its way

Same thing with the next 4....

8-11. Love is all we have left
8-11. American soul (would be higher without the Volcano part. I love u2 rock songs)
8-11. Landlady
8-11. 13 (too bad song for someone exists... this is much better)
12. You re the best thing about me
13. Get out of your own way

My top 3 is clear.... my bottom 2 as well.... The rest is all very solid. Not much anything they have done before.... it is surprising, sometimes makes me even smile. Next ranking after the real stuff comes with a good sound!!!
