I know which are my 2 least favourite tracks (veneno and rubicon), but not so sure about my favourite ones. I'll wait a few days I think (although I have listened to it about 12 times already)

I went for salvaging, but heck,  it could easily by anything on here. No Twilight is awesome, and the Koto on Insurgentes I LOVE. So.... all of it really. Not really given the bonus disc enough time, as it isn't in 5.1.

seriously it ain't going to get any votes in anyone's top 3. Unless there's someone being perverse for the sake of arguement.

I was writing my favorite songs here but I deleted it because I was in the end picking up to 6-7 which are imo in the same league of excellence  Wink
 
I´ll keep it simple then.
 
My pick:
Insurgentes has the advantage of moving me more emotionally than others... so I picked that one  Wink

I really like Harmony Korine, Abandoner, Veneno Para Las Hadas and Insurgentes from the album. Collecting Space is my favourite from the bonus disc. But my vote went to Insurgentes as I like it the best of the bunch.

This album is simply jaw-dropping, it is SW put bare -with all his influences and tastes in music accumulated and brpught forth as a kind of musical confession...
I chose Harmony Korine (just utter its title and FEEL how the NAME OF IT sounds!) - even though this is the only PT-like track on the album.  
But this music will be growing on me for years....
My Insurgentes of late Nov. '08 will differ from my Insurgentes of 2018...
And that Ill still be into it I m pretty sure... Smiley

I had to go with Significant Other, but it's probably only just above tracks like Veneno and Salvaging... the whole thing is really great but Significant Other has probably been in my head a bit more than everything else, even though I expect myself to prefer Veneno...
 
I suppose it's because I instantly saw the magic and beauty in Veneno but Significant Other grew on me a bit.

After one night of listening that is AMONG my faves, but still too early to tell yet.  Savaging is really high up there as is the "Krimso track", No Twilight within in the courts and the title track.

Wow, still? I was surprised that more people didn't pick "No Twilight" early on in reviews. It has instant appeal. Still doing it for me after a week, over time it might get beaten, but I'm the first to vote for it? Really?

Went for Significant Other, but I almost clicked Get All You Deserve... it has an odd effect on me, that song. I would pick No Twilight, but parts of it couldve been improved and it leaves me wanting... I think it shouldve been longer, personally, as well.

No idea yet. I will tell you that Port Rubicon and Insurgentes (Mexico) won't make the cut. Smiley
 
Port Rubicon sounds like it should have been added to Burden by Opeth (after those detuned guitars at the end of Burden).  
 
Insurgentes (Mexico) is a great tune on its own, if someone were to play it for me out of the blue, but I am not sure what the remix adds.

Totally agree - I love it, but the middle section could easily be twice as long and I think it'd hold together a bit better for it. It's a pretty long build to a pretty short climax.

undecided
I had a hard time to decide but finally chose "Collecting Space".
I know the track is not new, but this light modified version is really beautiful  
and it truly gave me the shivers when I listened to it.
It was though closely followed by "Signigficant other".... just close your eyes
and find yourself floating over a flowery meadow....  Smiley

I also cant believe that SO is winning this poll...It does have initial appeal but dare I say it - it reminds me a bit of Blackfield, catchy at first then ultimately a bit facile & irritating?

Although I really like other tracks as much as "Collecting Space," that's what I voted. I really really liked the demo from myspace, but this real version (with Levin, et al) is awesome.

^Me too. I was lucky enough to find the digibook edition of Insurgentes in a CD shop (but not the one with the bonus disc, sadly cry) recently. If only I was an obsessive PT collector two years ago. Sad

I didn't vote the first time, and lately (at the time of completing the poll) I've been listening "a lot" to Insurgentes (Mexico), not sure why, but the simplicity of that song is astonishing to me. Is it the best track of the album? possibly not: Significant Other, Collecting Space, Veneno and HC are amazing songs, but what is currently my favorite track?.....
