So, I think that the placement of "Subway" in the #2 slot doesn't work very well. It's not a bad song, but it drags a bit, and I think another punchy, energetic rocker would have worked better in that position.

Funny you say that, I feel that way about the second song on albums quite often.

I think Miracle Drug might be the most incompetently placed second track ever.

Agreed, although Stuck In A Moment comes close.

As for Mosquito, some standout tracks, but like others have stated, quite the disappointment.

I think I like the NOLA Demo version of Subway better than the album version. Hmmmm.

And yes, Despair and Wedding Song are gorgeous.

The line "In flames I sleep soundly" is a powerful one, at least for me.

I thought immediately of Sorrow when I read this.

I love "Sorrow" (and actually dig "Subway"), but I totally agree. Odd placement for both.

If you don't like the cover... probably don't watch this video.

The video for Despair is absolutely fantastic, despite how simple it is. I love the long tracking shot at the end.
