1 - You're The Best Thing About Me
No, really. I think it's a good song, and I like the edge's middle 8. It is nothing remarkable by all means, but I think it's the best of this bunch so far.

2 - The Blackout
Studio version is so much better. I kind of like it, but a couple of things let me down, the bridge is too drab and twice as long as it should be, while the rhyming names are obviously stupid. Otherwise, it's a good listen.

3 - The Little Things That Give You Away (Live)
This one isn't a representative ranking as we've not heard the studio version yet, but otherwise, an ok to average song with no hook. Doesn't offend me, nor does it interest me much.

4 - Get Out Of Your Own Way
The song itself is ok but it is just underwhelming and unremarkable. I find it extremely middle of the road. It is catchy, I'll give it that, but I can't see myself getting into this one much. The preaching at the end is absolute crap, I hate it, and it ruins it.

5 - American Soul
This is just crap. Sorry. The chorus isn't even its own. You can't just take a section of a song from your last album and make it a chorus to a song on your next. That is stupid, ridiculous, lazy, and it's annoying the hell out of me. The rest of the song isn't any good either. But this is half a song, and half Volcano, which I find absolutely ridiculous. I hate this song. It is shite!
