What is your favourite track on Deadwing?

It seems that enough people now have Deadwing (or have heard it), to kick this off ....

Yeah, it could be interesting to repeat this poll afetr a few weeks/months and see if things change much.
 
Just for the record, my vote went for Arriving Somewhere.

I had to vote for Arriving Somewhere But Not Here. One of the main reasons I love PT is because of their epic, textured, progressive pieces, and I love that PT decided to return to that sort of thing on Deadwing after a notable absence on In Absentia. 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.

open car is one of my faves on the new album, it's just that i am really impressed with the vocal harmonies on Mellotron Scratch and the sheer originality of the track

Usually it takes some time to estimate the value of each track in PT albums. No matter how long you listen to them you always find something new to discover.
 
After having listened to Deadwing about 15 times I vote for "Arriving somewhere but not here".

I voted ASBNH, but as well as the second long track, Deadwing, is very nice - it is quite complex, ambitious and well played. The short ones (Shallow, Lazarus, Open Car, Hello) are also nice, but, for me, too short, too 'commercial' (???). Mellotron Scrathc is one of my favourites, especially the second more instrumental part. The Start of Something Beautiful (TSOSB) is one of the less memorable for me, but also nice.  The weakest one is Glass Arm Shattering, maybe because too simpel constuction of the track and, actually, there are no surprises.  
That's my opinion.

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).

I don´t 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 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.

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

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

Got to be "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here", to me it is the centre-piece of the album, and has everything a PT track should have - great melody and harmonies, textured keyboards, great guitar (the heaviest I've ever heard from SW), the lot!!
 
The best thing I've heard in ages. No question.

I think I remember saying that I would get back to you (or someone else here) regarding whether or not SCF would jell with the album better than Shallow.  Well, now after hearing the album in its entirety, I think I would have to agree with you that SCF does fit the context of the album better.  Its a vibe thing..... especially with the chorus.

I just came into this thread, and apparently I voted?  Shocked
 
My favorite is Mellotron Scratch, what a fantastic song. Open Car is close, but Mellotron just has that very distinct PT feel to it. ASBNH is also great, and I guess everyone else thinks so too!  Cheesy

Tough call... went for Deadwing in the end.  Followed by Halo,  Arriving....  and Glass arm ..

Its very hard to choose a favourite track, Lazarus, ASBNH, Glass Arm Shattering are all pretty obvious, but at the moment I'm really gravitating towards Halo, Mellotron Scratch & Open Car.
 
To be honest, I'm still listening to the whole album with a huge degree of enthusiasm. Its just one of those albums where you really only get the most out of it when you listen to it completely.

I think I remember saying that I would get back to you (or someone else here) regarding whether or not SCF would jell with the album better than Shallow.  Well, now after hearing the album in its entirety, I think I would have to agree with you that SCF does fit the context of the album better.  Its a vibe thing..... especially with the chorus.    

 
I really really like Shallow, what can I say, like SW I like a good original guitar riff.  However at this juncture I think The Start of Something Beautiful is my favorite.  But getting back to it, I think Shallow fits the album better than So-Called Friend.  It's kind of a strange juncture though from Shallow to Lazarus, but works okay.

Yes, I love Shallow too.  Shallow to Lazarus is quite a jump like you say but it keeps you on your toes... not knowing what to expect next!!  I tell ya, I listened to the album again today and it literally gives me chills.   Smiley

Whilst I love all the album - ASBNH is fantastic  Smiley
 
If my prog-hating mates can appreciate this track [BTW, i didn't say PT were prog - it's just that my friends can't see past TSMS!!!], then there is always hope.
 
ASBNH would grace the majority of 'classic' albums, whatever the artist.

They're all good (ehhh.... errr... ok, maybe not Shallow, just still won't grow on me)....  and I personally think that the DVD-A/DTS version is the best one out there out of all the versions (and I've got every one they have released).  My only complaint with it is that the lyrics section is outside of the music track section, so you can't view the lyrics while listening to the music.  Come on Lasse, you should have thought about this ahead of time....   Smiley

I had to go with Arriving Somewhere - not here. This is the most like my favorite cut "Trains" from In Absentia.
 
These translations from acoustic to electric, and change of pace songs show off the true talent of this band.

Phase III is indeed one of my favourites! I think it's meant to be an ambient track so you can crash into your bed with headphones and have a nice psychedelic trip! I bet you wouldn’t like stuff from Bass Communion…  Shocked
 
I've had a hard time choosing one track from the album, it's so damn good that I had to take several listens to make the right decision, however, while listening to Arriving in the 5.1 mix I was totally mesmerized... that song just kicks a$$!!! Second (and close) winner IMHO is The Start of Something Beautiful... The chorus in Open Car is surely one to die for, same thing in Halo. Well people I think SW and company created yet another winner in their extensive resume.
 
The only song I disliked was the bonus track, I think the original is light years away from this mix, but might be a good starting point for new fans.  cry

it was rather strange, my first 3 listens of this album i wasnt sure which was a good track, or whether in fact there was one good song on it. but ive heard it a few more times, and its growing on me really well!! i think it might take a little while longer though Wink
 
but favourite songs would have to be ASBNH, MS, DW or Lazarus.
 
Akerfeldts vocals on DW actually make that song even better, it suits it so much Smiley

"Start of Something Beautiful" - indeed it is - so PT...so SW...killer break and chorus.
 
For me, it's the Deadwing track that demonstrates the absolute heights to which PT can take a listener.  Gives me that PT rush that many of the IA and outstanding older tracks did.
 
That's not to say Deadwing isn't a fabulous album all-around - it's just that this is the track that really grabs me and keeps me.
 
I'm hoping they do it at both shows I'm seeing this weekend!!

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.

Gimme five, guys; SOSB all the way for me.  It was the only track on the album that sent shivers down my spine like I was used to get when listening to PT.  I remember first hearing the 9/8 riff with the electronic bass, covered with the lush synths, and I went "finally, PT shining like they are able to do!".  That's what brought me to PT in the first place : a perfect blend of ambient, electronic and metal, with no fear of more experimental structures (prog rock, anyone?  Wink) and instruments.

Hmm.
 
yeah, I guess youre right.
I got my info from a thread on this forum that had the lyrics to every song on Deadwing.
 
But for the life of me I cant find it right now.  Had the lyrics on the 2nd page of the thread.
 
Oh well.  Thanks for the correction.

I thought this thread would be the most fitting one for the start of my posting "career"  Wink on this messageboard. Why, you ask? Well, even though Deadwing wasn't my introduction to PT (I already had In Absentia, which my ex gave me in 2004) it was a track from the newest record (also a gift from my ex, yay!) that made me look for a PT community online...

Hard to pick a favourite - depends on my mood! Tonight it's ASBNH but quite often it's Deadwing or Shallow or Lazarus... it's a wonderful album, not a duff track on it.

You are right. But, didn't you expect this to happen ? I mean, it's a long song, and therefore the best (following the prog logic). For me, it's just an OK song truly ruined by an awful Dream Theater impersonation in the middle of it.

You are right. But, didn't you expect this to happen ? I mean, it's a long song, and therefore the best (following the prog logic). For me, it's just an OK song truly ruined by an awful Dream Theater impersonation in the middle of it.

That's what I mean. Everyone knew that ASBNH was going to get the most votes whether they agreed or not, so why not omit it and see what happens?

The length of the song isn't why I love ASBNH.
 
Oh well, it's hard to figue out why one person loves a song and his friend hates it.  We are individuals and certain things seem natural to us, and others one are abhorrent.

I've never really thought about this point, but oh my is the Tinto Brass/Stop Swimming combo a powerful one. Beautiful... Cheesy I would say better than that on Deadwing, but each to his own!

First it was TSOSB, then it was Arriving, but now I've come to a conclusion that it's TSOSB.   I just love this track to death, it's a song I can put on repeat and never tire of it.  The middle section = bliss.  The chorus is powerful and the lyrics... well.. "You thought it was the start of something beautiful.. well think again."  LOVE IT.

It's easily my favorite on this record.

You absolutely speak my mind here, smartbrowner! ASBNH is the only song I don't like on "Deadwing" for exactly these reasons. Not a particularily good melody line and then the unneccessary "typical prog show (off) case which is neither good, interesting nor has a great guitar riff! The exact opposite is the beautifully structured "Start of something B."with it's atmospheric , elegantly melodic instrumental part. On the whole though,I just prefer  the short, compact and fluent songs, Lazarus, Halo, Shallow!

I remember when I first heard Deadwing. I listened to Mellotron scratch and found it kind of weak, but the more I listened to it, the more I liked it. I don't know what my favorite track would be, it depends on my mood. Sometimes, Arriving is amazing, but other times shallow is amazing. It really depends.

The Start Of Something Beautiful - Up until last weekend when I saw them in Manchester I would have agreed with the majority here on Arriving Somewhere, but TSOSB blew me away last weekend. And it is so unfortunately relevant to me personally at this time...

actually, I voted for ASBTH at the time... but I came up in changing my mind lately; so now I'd say SOSB is definetely my fav (by being Arriving somewhere.. close second, btw). the rest of the album remains a good span below those two, imho

I voted Mellotron Scratch. That one deserves more attention. This track captures all PT is about and the crossed vocals in the end are so very beautiful. I like the acceleration with the Townshend-riff also.

I must say Glass Arm is one of my least favs (along with Lazarus and Shallow) as a stand alone track as not much is happening in it musically. However, it always sends a shiver down my spine when listened properly along with the whole album. I guess it's one of those songs that just don't work well on their own but are perfect as a part of the whole product. IMO.

TSOSB, although I love the whole album.
 
I loved the "Open Car" opening at the shows though.  I didn't think it would work until I saw it.
 
Halo is also AMAZING live.
 
I'm also in the minority that LOVES Shallow.  I know it's an intentially "commercial" metal song, but the guitar work is wonderful.

DW is an album that slowly, but gradually threatens In Absentia to be dethroned from the 1st spot on my PT ranking list. It has a steady flow that never gets interrupted and the build up of emotions in the 2nd part of the album is magnificent. Favs are Arriving, SOSB and the title track.
 
Edit: Agreed about Shallow with MuscLA, also.

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.

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.

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.

Ineteresting. There's one track on this album that I almost detest and one I don't like very much. I like a lot pretty much all the others though.
 
Anyway, I originally voted for Open Car, way back. Now it would have been a tie between Deadwing and Start Of Something Beautiful.

Hey, nobody voted in this poll in the entire year 2008!  Huh About time it was bumped, lol.  
 
I voted on ASBNH almost exactly three years ago, as a noob to this forum. You would think time changes things but nope, not in this case - it's still by far my favourite track by the band. In fact, I love it much more now than I did back in Jan 06, when I was still fairly new to it. What can I say, the song is like fine wine... And to me it makes PERFECT sense that it has hogged nearly half of all the votes. I'm convinced it will only grow in stature in the coming years, and it's actually quite thrilling to witness that firsthand. With my other fav bands I always tend to be very late to the party, discovering great gems and records years and years after the fact...

my track is mellotron scratch, to me that's the best song they ever made. especially the second part of the song is absolutely brilliant. I always thought it was a bit strange that it is not a fans favourite. I thought it was strange that they did not have it on the Arriving Somewhere dvd.
 
 every time i listen to it, I like it even more, and I already listened to it a couple 100 times or something like that, it still growes on me!

The Start of Something Beautiful.
 
No question about it, it's my favourite track and has been since the beginning for me. I don't foresee it changing any time soon. Deadwing is my favourite album, so there are many tracks I will sit and listen to over and over in one sitting. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here is just fantastic, but The Start of Something Beautiful just has an edge over it. I can't quite explain what. But I love it.

"The Start Of Something Beautiful" if I have to pick one - the album is best as a whole (and in 5.1 of course)
 
I don't understand why "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" is on top, it's easily my least favourite song on Deadwing.  
Intro, build-up and Mikael's solo are just perfect, but the heavy part (with the open hi-hat) kills it for me...

Arriving Somewhere obviously. 2nd would probably be Mellotron Scratch. It really seems to carry the amazing momentum Arriving Somewhere has. The last 2 minutes are incredible.
 
The whole album is excellent though.

I've actually changed my mind from Arriving Somewhere to Deadwing.
 
It is absolutely amazing. It doesn't get nearly enough credit (honestly, looking through this thread, there is not much mention of the song), especially as an epic long track. And while the whole of Deadwing is fantastic, the title track is just far ahead of the rest.

The first time I heard "The Start of Something Beautiful" I was blown away. It immediately vaulted into my top 5 favorite PT songs, and it's still there today. I can't get over what an amazingly crafted piece of music it is, and if I were introducing someone to PTree, that would be one of the first songs I'd have them listen to. For the record, here's my rankings of the songs on Deadwing:
 
1) The Start of Something Beautiful
2) Deadwing
3) Glass Arm Shattering
4) Mellotron Scratch
5) Arriving Somewhere But Not Here
6) Halo
7) Lazarus
8) Shallow
9) Open Car
