Do you not like Desire at all, or is it just your least favorite because you love the others so much?

1. Mae - Quickly becoming one of my favorite songs, ever.
2. Blue Dahlia - Like everyone else, I'm wondering why this was a bonus track.
3. National Anthem - Beautiful acoustic track, not sure why there's so much hate for this one.
4. Biloxi Parish - Epic song, better than the original, though would of benefited from not being released a year ago.
5. Too Much Blood - Another epic, just filled with emotion.
6. Here Comes My Man - The lameish chorus keeps this song from being top 5 IMO.
7. Keepsake - Another great heavy rocker, reminds me of Pearl Jam, love the emotion in this track.
8. Mullholland Drive - The "I would just die..." line holds this song back, the ending is perfect though.
9. 45 - Fantastic song, just a little bit too much on the generic side for me.
10. Handwritten - Don't understand the love for this one, great track of course, just far from the best.
11. Howl - Not a bad song, it's been growing on me, can't wait to hear it live.
12. Desire - Stole Blue Dahlias spot. I'll keep it on my iPod and it'll get a few listens from time to time, but most of the time completely skipable. Worst song they've written IMO.

ive noticed that, it is really interesting too see peoples list because they all seem to really differ! which for me feels unusual with a TGA album and people usual responses to songs. i still feel undecided on some tracks and ive listened to it on repeat. I know its gonna be one of those albums in my car i skip tracks on then in a few months am wondering..."why the hell did i ever keep skipping that track its awesome!"

Can you believe I had my list ready to post and electricity went down? No I'll do it differently now...

Howl
----------------------
(these 3 could go in any order, really)
Handwritten
Blue Dahlia
Biloxi Parish
----------------------
Here Comes My Man
Mae
45
Too Much Blood
----------------------
(I keep moving these around, it depends on the moment)
Mulholland Drive
Keepsake
Desire
----------------------
(I have nothing against this song, but it's honestly the one I listen to the least, because I have to be in the right mood, since it's not usually my kind of tune)
National Anthem

It was funny to look through all of your lists and see some songs go from best to worst. Laughing

I like Too Much Blood but I must admit its wearing on me, its just a bit repetitive and long. Unfortunately for me I guess its going to be the one off each album that Gaslight always play but Im sick of hearing e.g. Queen of Lower Chelsea and Even Cowgirls get the blues. Im not sure if the band really just like these songs or that they think we as the fans do but when Ive read through the least favourite song thread QofLC and ECGTB are the mor common choices...

This is actually the first time I've ranked them (which is surprising because I love making lists). I keep switching Mae and Blue Dahlia. I put NA high because I think it is absolutely gorgeous and I'm glad they threw a slower song in the mix. On another note, every time Brian says "Mama", I have to listen again immediately. Makes me melt a little Smile

1-4 on my list I think are up there with their best stuff. 5-9 are decent, strong songs. 10-12 are filler.
