Start of Something Beautiful ... way out there all by itself. And then of course Arriving...right after (a bit the other way arround compared to most of you Tongue)
The rest of it is perfect to me.

sorry about the *bump*
just saw the other polls and wondered where this one went.
Anyway, I voted Lazarus, probably not typical of a PT fan but this song has a strange soothing effect on me eventhough it is simple, it is just one great popsong composition.

I love Arriving Somewhere, but Mellotron Scratch takes the idiomatic cake for me. The ending is just so ridiculously beautiful.

Listened to Arriving Somewhere again yesterday after a long absence. Geez it's atmospheric. I'd easily rate it over Anesthetize now. So good.

Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, best PT song ever. That middle heavy section is god-like.

I still don't understand why ASBNH gets the credit it's getting, it's good, but not near as good as a lot of people give it out to be, and it's def. not the 'god' among PT songs, not even the best on Deadwing i.m.o. Anesthetize rules the hell out of it i.m.o.

The word you are looking forward to asnwer your query is..........
Taste
 
Another way to asnwer it would be - "Best" is different to "favourite"
 
A lot of peopel forget that though  Wink

That is a unbelievable song.  I love the aggitated middle part; WOW are they good!  And yes, after two years, you have to have some perspecitve on the whole of "Deadwing".

I'm in the minority.... I love halo.... that song rocks especially live ....  
 
I'll have to duck rotten tomatoes while saying deadwing is one of my least favorite PT albums....I dont hate it.... I just dont like it as much as the others.
 
that said.... I'm going to listen to it again today.... multiple times and see if I can change my mind on that Tongue Grin

Of course, but on a forum one discusses one's tastes right? Wink
 
It's just that mostly I can somehow 'objectively' understand/reason a certain viewpoint even if I don't share it. In this case I can understand people like the song, obviously, I like it too, but not how it's placed so high above a lot of other songs.

You must love the DVD since the 1st 5 picks are on the DVD and the last 4 are not. Perhaps the DVD influenced your decision?
