The Rising is one of very few albums that has a type of personal connection for me. My two favorite tracks, You're Missing and Into the Fire, are a part of that.

That's totally cool but I've never liked Into the Fire all that much. It's the "may your strength give us strength, may your hope give us hope, etc" that kills it for me. They go on with that refrain too many times in my opinion, and something about it just bugs me for some reason.

You're Missing is beautiful, however.

My favorite songs on The Rising are Lonesome Day, Further On (up the road), Waitin on a Sunny Day, Countin on a Miracle, and the title track.

I must be one of the very few who doesn't mind Let's Be Friends, although it still pales in comparison to most of the album.

I've found You're Missing a little hard to listen to since Steve's cousin died unexpectedly last December.

(Although it's a lovely song.)

I've gotten that a lot since I've joined this board. I wonder if it's because I have the word "girl" in my username? Or maybe I just have an effeminate style of posting? I don't think that's it.

Anyway, I'm a boy.

I have to say I think Nothing Man is my favorite off The Rising.

Me too. I don't like it that much on the album, but live it is much better!

I like the album version better.

Because it's shorter.
