Best surprise on Album

For me it has to be "A Man and a Woman" & "Crumbs From Your Table".

Crumbs reminds of of Radiohead "Bends" era and that is a good thing.

"Crumbs" because it seemed like every review gave it a weak score, but i absolutely love it.

"Crumbs"

Ja

Everyone seemed to bash it. This is what WILATW could have been with a little more time.

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it
Everywhere you go you shout it

And the doo doo doo doo near the end

YAHWEH!!

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes
And make them fit
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul
And make it sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don’t make a fist
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I’m waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break

A Man and a Woman - Because of the reviews, I was expecting a throwaway, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

Crumbs From Your Table - The reviews were very wrong about this one! This is a great song.

Yahweh - Amazing.

To be honest, the entire album is a surprise. I was hoping and praying that it would be a masterpiece and they've met and exceeded my expectations!

Absolutely. Wouldn't it be cool if they performed this with an orchestra on tour?

The most pleasant surprises for me are A Man & a Woman and Crumbs. Based on the all the reviews, I was expecting these songs to be poor. I think it's safe to say that these songs are winners.

Crumbs and Yawhew are GREAT POSITIVE surprises.

OSC is a let down... Ppl were saying it was like Passengers cause of the ambient mood...

Its very Grace/POE kinda ambient, not Passengers. And thats not a very good thing.

"Origin of Species"..................can't believe that U2 can pull a Beatle-ish tune like that. Impressive.
