The Start Of Something Beautiful.
I love that fact that it's in 9/8. I love the lyrics. I love the little touches that Richard adds in here and there. I love the bassline. I love.

For me it's really a toss between Deadwing and Arriving Somewhere, but I'm gonna go with Deadwing since ASBNH is owning Deadwing.

I think when there it's 100 votes we may draw some conclusions. For now we may be sure that Arriving... is the best track on deadwing and the difference between one and the rest of tracks is overhelming!
Which track wil be on the second place? Mellotron... or maybe Deadwing, Start of..., Lazarus or Open Car will be on the second place! People, vote!

Arriving Somewhere, But Not Here - it`s just the core of this album and it has such a great atmosphere and flow! But it was close with Mellotron Scratch (SW is at his best in multi-layered harmony vocals like this, imo).

Songs like Sky Moves Sideways, Russia on Ice, Voyage 34, Dark Matter, Don't Hate Me are all fantasic epic tracks, and Arriving Somewhere joins the list.

 
Agreed.   8)

I dont think I could choose between those 9 songs without causing my head to explode. I voted for TSOSB though. But I only did that because I wanted to take part in the poll  Grin

I got to say Lazarus. However, all the songs except Open Car have the potential to be a favorite...IF it weren't for Lazarus.

I could pick any of the first 5 songs. After ASBNH I feel a bit of an anti-climax. Might try re-programming to start with Mellotron Scratch and end at Arriving

The whole album is just so excellent, but Arriving Somewhere is probably on the best songs ever written IMHO especially after seeing it performed live twice so far it just gets better and better.

IMO, "Arriving somewhere but not here" is worth the whole album price.

Lazarus! This might actually become one of my all time favorite PT tracks. Although the whole album is awesome!

Ah, well Arriving is the obvious choice, but 2nd is a tricky one. I think it might be The Start...

It's funny to see some people saying that "Shallow" is a great song in the context of the album, and then, to see the same people trashing "4 Chords" from LS. Talk about coherence. It must be the "new album has to be good" syndrome. Grin

Huh? Well, either that or just that some people find Shallow good but 4 Chords not good. After all they're different songs. I like Shallow but I always skip 4 Chords...

I voted for Lazarus. If i were to pick a 2nd & 3rd it would be Deadwing followed by Open Car.

I honestly don't see what's wrong with "Shallow". Though SW has even admitted that it is their "first big dumb rock song", it's still a fine song. Not that great in context of the rest of the album, but still great (not good).
 
Perhaps a new thread should be made about this?

I've listened to the record about a half dozen times, and I keep going back to Arriving...  The album as a whole is so good it's hard to make that distinction.  I like the harmonies on Mellotron, and the sweet chorus of Lazarus.  Halo is growing on me, as is Open Car.  I also like the Signify-esque textures of Glass Arm Shattering.
 
Hate to gush, but this is really a damn fine album.  Smiley

I think SCF should have replaced Shallow.  Its a better song and also I think it would fit the context of the album better... Its not that I dont like Shallow, I think part of it was just cause it leaked way way before anything else off the album and I played it over and over and over...  If they woulda took out Shallow and put in SCF maybe after TSOSB that woulda been great... O well, can't have everything you want... lol still one of the best albums ever made no doubt
