Sorry to start a negative thread, but thought it could be interesting.

My least favourite track so far is Suffocation of the Soul, simply because like a review said, it just doesn't seem to go anywhere. I love the long, epic songs, but it just doesn't seem to have a purpose. But it's probably the song I've listened to least, so I'm sure it'll grow on me after a few listens.

What about everyone else? Which track, and why?

Actually I feel completely the opposite to you about that song. On my first spin of the album that song stuck out for me.

i think suffocation is one of the best songs on there.

act of kindness is the weakest for me.

act of kindness feels like it got a simplicity to it which the rest of the album doesn't have. adds to the variety..

All of the tracks have their own personality, to put it pretenciously...

I don't dislike any of them!

Yeah I would put suffocation of the soul up there with the best, and thats not an easy achievement! Can't really get into agony, prob just cos i'm used to the live version, sure all will be good in a few listens. Usually the ones i say are weakest are the ones i end up loving the most in the end!

Mine is Suffocation and DLNA. I didnt like Crushed at first but its grown on me. Agony im still in two minds about, but the lyrics really wouldnt fit if there wasnt piano in it.

I don't disike any of them, but Crushed Under frustrates me. The lyrics are great, but I feel they concentrated so much on the lyrics that the music suffers somewhat. I think this is a "musical complaint" rather than a song, not Three Hail Marys.

suffocation is brillant just for the 'i've lost it a little bit!

if i HAD to pick a least favourite song it would probably have to be crushed.its good but i feel if it didn't have those lyrics it wouldn't stand out as much.but thats just nit picking,i really love it!

Point taken, but the music is still a bit weak compared to the rest of the album, in my opinion.

EDIT: not that I know fuck all about how to make music.

I think the whole thing is perfection. Only little thing is i think agatha sounds better with guitar not piano. Suffication of the soul is fucking brilliant.

But the song would be pointless if it were recorded with guitar only.
