    I like it a lot, it's also my mom's favorite DMB song.

    Re: Away From The World or Big Whiskey?

    I voted AFTW back then, and I would still vote AFTW now... Sure, it gets a bias boost from the "return of Lillywhite", but it is a smooth album that neatly mixes "classic DMB" sound with non-overpowering "DMB 3.0" sound. BW, while still quite good, is geared more towards the overpowering DMB 3.0 sound, and gets a bias boost from being an "ode to Roi".

    BW's highest points for me are:
    Lying In The Hands Of God
    Squirm
    Baby Blue
    Grux

    Lowest points are:
    Dive In
    You and Me


    AFTW's highest points are:
    Snow Outside
    Drunken Soldier
    The Riff
    Broken Things

    Lowest points are:
    Mercy
    If Only


    BW has more "skip songs" for me than AFTW does, and the melodies on AFTW are more "artsy" (at least compared to current DMB standards), unlike most of BW.

    Away from the World is fantastic. When im in a mellow mood, it might be my favorite album of theirs.
