It's a toss between A Simple Mistake and Universal.

Only one? I'm torn between 3.
 
Thin Air, Angels Walk Among Us and A Simple Mistake.  And oddly am listening to it as I saw this poll.  HA!  Maybe not odd - I've been listening to this A LOT!

I know, hard to choose, but yes, only one.

So I!
 
Still haven't voted, need to listen it a couple times more...
...but from the first listen I blindly trusted, that this is one of those strange albums where no song is a filler, something like the DSOTM for PF, or Beatles' Abbey Road!

Although there are a lot of great songs on this album, "A Simple Mistake" stands out for me. It may be my favorite Anathema song, actually...

Love most all of it, but a Simple Mistake just wins for me. But that seems disrespectful of all the other tracks. undecided

I went with Angels Walk Among Us.  But A Simple Mistake.  And Thin Air!  Cheesy  *bliss*  That.  The album is the sonic version of pure BLISS!

I voted for A Simple Mistake, though I must confess Presence has a certain charm  Smiley

It's WAY too early for me to vote since I've only listened once, and I am not even going to read the other comments yet so as to remain unbiased.
 
The only thing I can say at present is that I think I prefer the slow tracks to the fast ones.

I find this to be one of those albums that actually seems to improve as I approach the end, and I have a feeling that my vote will eventually go to one of the two final tracks. I won't vote yet though as I want to give it a few more listens first.
 
I don't accept their "Life is sternal" chain of logic though. Life MAY be eternal, but that does not automatically follow from the premise that death is the opposite of birth.

Words cannot describe how much I love Thin Air. But other favourites are Angels Walk Among Us, Universal, Hindsight ...
 
Oh hell. I just love the whole album. So there.  Tongue

Thin Air blew me away when I heard it, and convinced me I needed to buy this album. It also had to do with the emotional state I was in at the time, but that's what makes music powerful.

Day by day I'm more convinced that the best choice is "A Simple Mistake"  Smiley

I eventually voted for the closer, Hindsight, though it was a close tussle between that and Universal.
 
I think it's to do with the fact that Hindsight works so well as a closing track, in much the same way as Sleep Together, or the track that ends Dark Side of the Moon.
 
Dreaming Light, Angels Walk Among Us and A Simple Mistake would form a tight group next up in my ranking, followed by Everything and Presence (not necessarily in that order) and the other three bringing up the rear. However there is no track that I find myself wanting to skip at any time.

I picked "Dreaming Light". It may be a fairly simple song but I think that it is beautiful.

Angels Walk Among Us by a long way - thats lonly because i love it so much, not because the rest arent good, because they're awesome too!
 
A Simple Mistake and Thin Air would be next in line.
