Your Favortie Tracks on Grace For Drowing?

I think we've had the album in our hands long enough to express which songs on the album are our favorites. (and i'm sorry if you're still one of the few waiting for your deluxe edition..)
 
As excellent as the album is try to refrain from clikcing them all! Wink

I'm not casting my vote yet until I've given the album a few more spins.
 
As a first guess however, I would list:
 
- Deform to Form a Star
- No Part of Me
- Postcard
- Belle de Jour
- Like Dust I have Cleared from My Eye
 
(I don't have the "extras" disc.)
 
I have a feeling that I will get to like the "strange" tracks like Raider Prelude, Raider II and Remainder more with repeated listens. I can't say there is anything I dislike. I am even enjoying Track One, which I didn't like much when I viewed the initial video.

Deform To Form a Star
No Part Of Me
Remainder of the Black Dog
Index
Raider II
 
I really like most of the tracks on the main discs. The only song I think is much weaker than the others is Postcard.

I must be in the minority here but I just dont get the love for " Deform". Sure, its a pretty song & ticks all the right boxes but seems a bit...sterile/technical?
Dunno.
Just doesnt do it for me.
I way prefer Index, Belle de Jour and Raider. And Home in Negative.

This entire album is truly phenomenal. A completely different direction for SW to go, and I'd go as far to say it's a completely innovative album in the world of modern music in general.  
 
That being said, I'll admit I haven't made the time to truly appreciate "Raider II". The rest of the album I have, but my brain tends to "wander" when listening to that one, which is odd considering I've taken in all of "The Incident" (entire piece, not track) at once numerous times. Anyway, if my mind finally absorbs "Raider II", I might come back and change my vote in a few months. If I remember, that is.

I ended up voting for the above tracks, plus Remainder the Black Dog and Track One.
 
I don't dislike the others, they are just a little more challenging.
 
The only one of the bonus tracks that I know is Home In Negative, which I think is pretty ordinary by SW's standards.

Interestingly enough, the 5 tracks I voted for are actually leading in the poll now. Strange. There must be something wrong with me.  Tongue
