Favourite track(s) on Insurgentes
24. Jun 2010 at 07:06
 
I don't think this has been done yet, and there's been enough time for the album to sink in... and with a new solo album in the wind, perhaps this poll is timely.
 
Which track(s) is/are your favourites from Insurgentes?
Note: Multiple choice allowed. You can even check all the boxes except one to indicate there is only one you don't like - that's up to you.

I checked all of them except:
- Get All You Deserve, which I have never liked;
- No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun, which is a bit "muddy", but still good in places.
 
All the other tracks have grown on me, except for Harmony Korine, which I liked immediately (and still do).
The track that has grown on me the most is Veneno Para Las Hadas.

I didn't actually read that multiple choice was allowed as well, and somehow I missed the (s) in the header. Oh well, I voted No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun, Steven must of had as much fun with the guitar wanking as I do listening to it. Wink

It's been done, although without multiple choice:
http://www.porcupinetreeforum.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1227958803
 
This poll helps me revisit my views a bit. I still like Significant Other, I think NTWTCOTS has really great moments, but it drags a bit overall. HK is a very good Porcupine Tree song. But I only cast one vote, as there's only one song on the album that really grabs me by the heart, although it took a while to appreciate it. And that's the title track.

Didin't know that poll existed already, so I'm taking the freedom of voting here.

Twilight Coda.  
 
I love the layers. The way the acoustic guitar works alongside the piano is just wonderful.

Get All You Deserve would be my third choice.

The holy trinity of Twilight Coda, Get All You Deserve and Insurgentes are what make this album a masterpiece. Unbelievable sequence of songs, on par with the ending of NiN's Year Zero..in my book.  
 
Edit: but this is possibly my favorite SW release, so almost every track is perfect in my opinion. I agree that No Twilight Within.. drags, and to me Only Child is the weakest track.

Summarising the voting so far:
 
Harmony, Salvaging, No Twilight, Significant Other and Insurgentes form a fairly close-knit group of front-runners. Abandoner is a little way back, the others well back.
 
Stunned at the low number of votes for Veneno. I find the atmosphere of this piece amazing.

With the exception of Salvaging, these are my favourites.

I must say I'm being put off by how much it sounds like The Sky Moves Sideways (especially the '07 verisons). Maybe others feel this way too.

Actually when I listened the first few times I didn't realise I was still on track 3 when that part kicked in.
 
BTW would I be right in guessing that your personal favourite from the album is Track 1? Not sure what makes me think that. Tongue

Get All You Deserve by a mile - listening to it in 5.1 is simply incredible!
 
Abandoner and Insurgentes are fantastic, too...but I like all of Insurgentes =)

It really doesn't put me off. Love the song. Maybe because I love TSMS.

Harmony Korine - Duh. When I first heard the part of it on the teaser video for the album, I got CHILLS!
Abandoner - this one kinda bubbles up towards my favourite off the album from time to time.  
Veneno Para Las Hadas - GORGEOUS!
Insurgentes - Do I REALLY need to explain?

I checked all with the exception of "Only Child", which I find a bit dull.
 
Veneno and Get what you deserve are probably my favourites.

toss up between Abandoner and Significant Other. both songs are absolutely stunning and the cream of SW's crop IMO

I ticked all of them Veneno and Get All You Deserve. Although, both have still yet to grow on me.
 
Favorite from the list is hard but it has to be Harmony Korine. It just hooked me right away.

I hate to sit here and get all masturbatory, but I believe this really is SW's magnum opus; he's never done anything like it, and he'll never top it. The shear depth of the music, texturally and emotionally is unparalleled in popular music today...and as always, the song sequence is the key. to me this album is leagues above even The Incident. This album evokes a spiritual experience; it's far more than the sum of it's parts.

Harmony, Salvaging and Significant Other.
 
But...where's the bonus disc? I love The 78 and Collecting Space!

Harmony Korine
No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun
Significant Other
Only Child
Get All You Deserve
Insurgentes
 
That's my playlist for this album. It's also pretty much the order in which I like the songs.
I like Abandoner too but it doesn't quite make the cut. The remixes are fun though. Cool

No Twilight, Significant, Veneno and Get All You Deserve Smiley I think that Harmony Korine and Insurgentes sounds a little too much like something Porcupine Tree would do, especially Harmony, which is why, I don't think that they belong on this album. When I listen to Insurgentes (the album), it is because of the whole experimentation SW did on it, and Harmony and Insurgentes (the song) just sounds too ordinary for the album (even though they aren't, but compared to the album as a whole they are). So they are my least favorites of the album.
But nevertheless, Insurgentes is one of my all time favorite albums!
