Luminous Times, I guess, since it's the weakest of what was on the chopping block last time.

Honestly though, I've never been a Spanish Eyes fan. It feels very much like a b-side. Three Sunrises also does, it feels a touch underdeveloped, but it's too buoyant and sweet not to like.

Electrical Storm . . . just happens to be the 10th best. Looks like it will be a tight battle as the it is pitted to be the alternative to Luminous Times. LT is too powerful to be tossed out at this time IMO.

Luminous Times. I have a good feeling this time.

Probably my top 3:
1) Love Comes Tumbling
2) Lady With The Spinning Head
3) Electrical Storm

Mercy. But as soon as it's gone, it'll be time to oust Electrical Storm. Fairly easily the two weakest songs remaining.

Voting Mercy- it's OK, but I've never really understood the love for it, especially after the lyrics were butchered during 360.

Mercy is a good song but definitely the weakest here.

Everything else here is fucking fantastic. If Mercy departs this round, I'll probably move to The Three Sunrises and be deeply unhappy about it.

What a damn good batch of songs.

I voted for (against?) The Three Sunrises even though it doesn't have any votes. I love the other songs with votes way too much to try to choose between them. The Three Sunrises is a great song, but everything else is so strong.

I'm worried that Luminous will pick up a couple votes before the deadline and that I'll be backing the wrong one.

Delighted that Luminous is hanging in there. It seems that Interferencers are well divided in their feelings about it.

Doesn't even appear to be on the chopping block here. Still bloody hard to confidently cast a vote.

I'll go Electrical Storm.

I know this forum has an abiding fondness for Mercy, but it really should not last longer than Electrical Storm.
