Picked 'Why Do I?', Maria has one of my fav solos of all time.

 

Loved all Work Of Art releases and always anticipate the next one.

We're still referring to it as "Work of Art," are we?

 

It's been a while since I've listened to it, as I always go for In Progress, I believe "Like No Other" is my favourite. I certainly need to revisit this album.

I dont think this is even worthy of a vote, Why Do I is simply their best song by far, it is possibly one of the best songs in the past 20 years, and I dont think thats an accident, thats what happens when bands write songs like that, songs that are just so good, they can never be topped, and if you mistakenly hear the song before any of their other songs, it just ruins their other songs, cause every song on that debut is strong in one way or another, but opening with Why Do I really makes the album sound weak on 1st listen, if you write a song that you know is obviously going to be one of the best songs ever, close the fucking album with it, like Saints & Sinners did with Slipping Into Darkness, an obvious no brainer as far as singles go, but clearly shows up the rest of the album.

No hes talking about Saints & Sinners Slipping Into Darkness, yeah it was a rip off of 18 and Life, and a pretty damn good one at that, I know in the state I played it in, that song probably sold more albums here then they sold total everywhere else, personally I thought We Belong was the strongest track on the album, but we also played it and it didnt really do that well

One tiny issue with that point - 'Cover me' is a far better song than 'Why do I.'

I think my fav would be 'Her Only Lie', but I'll have to go back and re-listen.

I don' know, if I had to choose one from their discography it would be Her Only Lie. Best replay value ever. I'll post it probably in the tearjerkers sections. Love also the control he has on those high notes, particularly the ending one, where he could easily destroy the song, but not him, not that dude!
