It was a toss-up between On the Turning Away and Learning to Fly.

I picked the boring one.

With apologies to Aardvark, it's got to be Terminal Frost this time around.

I can't ever forgive you.

On The Turning Away.

All of these tracks are the same; 80's pop mush with some prog inflections. None of them really go anywhere, and when they do, they still sound awfully cheesy. Learning To Fly and Terminal Frost are probably the best.

I think I'm going to hold off on voting this round. Sorrow is too long and On The Turning Away takes a decade to get going.

I always hear you complain about songs that are too long.

You gotta appreciate the ones that have the balls to stretch out musically.

As for this, I love these remaining songs. They are all very good, but I'll have to go with Terminal Frost here.

I can't believe On The Turning Away is in danger of going before Terminal Frost and Learning To Fly.

You people need to listen to that guitar solo again.

I'm trying to figure out what problem people have with On The Turning Away and I can't.

This is truly the only messageboard I know where this song is not considered a great one.

It's not about how bad Turning Away is. It's about how impressive Terminal Frost is.
