Just have to say that One Day Like This is one of the best songs ever. From anyone.

I'd just like to say that I absolutely hate when this thread is bumped because then I think there's new album news.

I hate you all.

If it makes you feel any better, their site says they're in the studio. So it's kind of almost like new album news.

Sorta.

I kind of have that response to Mirrorball as well. It kind of gets lost sandwiched between the greatness of the songs before and after it.

But I like it, now that I'm listening to it and go 'oh yeah, that's purty.'

This is going to sound so fucking cheesy and like schmoopy girl stuff, but I have to say it.

Listening to the lyrics for Starlings and Mirrorball make we want to fall deeply and madly in love.

Like, right now.

Better run, fellas.

Sums it up for me. Most of it I immediately liked just for the sheer instrumental beauty. Those I wasn't immediately drawn to pulled me in with the lyrical beauty.

The weakest link for me is the Fix, but even that one has a lot to like.

I like The Fix because it's cheeky.

That's one of the things I like about it. But it does get maybe a little too close to broadway-musical-number for me. Not that I can't appreciate a broadway number, but it just seems a little out of place.

Did you end up ordering that CD/DVD for the Abbey Road version?

Yep. Really looking forward to watching/listening to that with the stereo up loud.

Can't wait to hear what you think of it! Hope it lives up to all the hype. I'll take the blame if it doesn't, since I've done nothing all week but talk it up.

Considering I've already watched all the songs on youtube, some several times in a row, I've got the sneaking suspicion I'll like it.
