What are your favorite tracks so far?

Man this album has so many great songs it's almost impossible to choose just a few. Mine would have to be:

Miracle Drug
SYCMOYO
OoTS
L&PoE

Vertigo, All because of you, City of blinding lights, Love and peace or else, Original of the species

Especially LAPOE struck me, so different from all their former work...

Vertigo
Crumbs (apart from the "teeth-eat all your friends" line)
All Because Of You
One Step Closer
OOTS

The only song I consider worthy of a 'classic' tag is Vertigo. Obviously that has an advantage because i've heard it 1237 times. OOTS would be a contender if it wasn't for the over-the-top, dreadful production. A more subtle approach to production would have made this a contender to the heights of WOWY and One. All Because of You is a great rock tune but One Step Closer is maybe the second best track on the album.

Miracle Drug was a dissapointment, bland to the point of boring, same with Yahweh. SYCMIOYO is also a bit of a mess production wise.

Obviously its early days and i'm sure things will grow on me after a few more listens. These are merely early impressions. Everyone seems to like Miracle Drug so maybe after a few more listens i'll see the light.

I'm not puting Vertigo on my list here cause I've listened to it a billion times by now but I still absolutely love it. But right now I can only listen to the ones I just got today. I love them all but right now it's like this:

Love And Peace Or Else
City Of Blinding Lights
All Because Of You
Original Of The Species
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

in order:
1) miracle drug
2) sycmioyo
3) oots
4) yahweh (not so impressed at first, but when listening straight through the whole album, it blew me away)
5) city of blinding lights
6) love and peace or else
7) vertigo
8) all because of you
9) crumbs from your table
10) one step closer
11) a man and a woman

this is gonna change most certainly...and another thing to note--i think all the songs are very strong and the top 8 straight up blew me away from first listen
