    after twenty-two votes, this is where things stand (assuming there is equal distance between song ranks, which is not true). "X" is the average rank times ten. "o"s are within one standard deviation of the average rank.

    Belly Belly- Just love this song. Im always a fan of the positive up beat songs
    Drunken Soldier- Lived up to the hype, only gonna get better live
    Snow Outside- Really Really liked this. everyones talking about boyd, but how about all the great riffs dave has on the album.
    The Riff- Loved it. The part at the end where it gets soft and then abruptly builds up again is amazing
    Broken Things- The lines where he says broken things have to be some of my favorite ever
    Rooftop- sounds like Fool to Think and I want you(shes so heavy) by the beatles had a baby to me
    Sweet- Made me like it even more on the album. Once you understand the song, thats when you love it.
    Gaucho- If i heard it today for the first time it would be higher
    Belly Full- Another Beatles Sound alike
    If Only-The chorus will always be stuck in my head
    Mercy- The fact that mercy is my least favorite shows how good the album is

    not a song i dont like

    Re: ***Official Rank the AFTW Songs Thread***

    it's no big surprise that the three best-known songs are ranked in the bottom four, three of the top four songs are songs that have been hidden from us, and the most-hyped song is the top song. obviously, we're in the honeymoon period.

    here are my rankings and thoughts:

    it's an album of good songs, but not a single one stuck out to me immediately. most of the songs are equally fun and forgettable, although some do have their moments. the production is wonderful and the arrangements are nice, but the message is soft and doesn't stick. content people generally have little worth talking about and it shows in this album. depression, death, existential crisis, young love, and the hope of doing good are ideas that fueled many of my favorite dmb songs. these themes seem to be mostly absent. the biggest challenges in the lives of normal men over forty revolve around holding family together and confronting age, and it shows. personally, i don't see more than one or two favorites coming from this album, which was the way i initially felt and still feel about big whiskey. that being said, i'm glad to have boyd back, i enjoyed the many time signature changes, and, most of all, i'm glad to have new dmb music to enjoy.


    1) mercy: i've loved it from the first time i heard it. it's easily one of my favorite dmb songs.
    2) rooftop: this one will get people moving and singing without a doubt. i want to rank it lower, but i can't find a reason why.
    3) the riff: it's probably the most mature song on the album. i'll probably find myself leaning on this one later in life.
    4) broken things: it's a nice opener with some interesting timing. it reminds me of "fool to think" and "the idea of you," which are both great songs.
    5) sweet: i love the comparison of a boy who is tired of swimming with and a man who is tired of his life. i hate the way the band jumps in to end the song -- it's just too much too suddenly.
    6) belly belly nice: an upbeat and tight song in the vein of "smlam" or "cornbread" -- sexually charged and a lot of fun. it will inspire many silly dances.
    7) gaucho: the verses and music are golden. the chorus and the kids kill it for me. otherwise, it would have been ranked much higher.
    8) drunken soldier: probably the most interesting song on the album, but there are way too many pieces to convincinly pass it off as a single, coherent song. it seems like the junk bin for all the awesome song bits that didn't grow into full songs.
    9) belly full: it's a love song for married people. it's a nice change of pace on the album and a bit of a safe spot, but that's about all.
    10) snow outside: it's nice to see an old friend again, but they have definitely become less cool in the time since.
    11) if only: someone left and and someone else regrets causing it -- big surprise. at least it's got a nice groove.

    Appreciate this. You should contribute your statistic when there is a bigger number and The Riff moves up the rankings...

    First impression:

    Rooftop (just stands out big time)
    Broken Things
    Drunken Soldier
    Mercy (It just hurts my heart singing it)
    If Only
    Snow Outside
    Belly Full
    Sweet
    Belly Belly Nice
    Gaucho (Not sure I'll ever get into this one. Production is great during the verses and chorus, I just can't stand the bridge)

    7. Mercy

    11. Gaucho

    Gaucho is quite honestly the only song I don't like. And I love the music behind it. But the lyrics/children's choir makes me cringe.

    3. broken things - love the vocal melodies, great chorus
    4. snow outside - I feel like this one's a grower. Not big on the slide guitar, but I can see great potential. Boyd is great
    5. sweet - it's beautiful. I've always liked it. If you didn't like it before this won't change your mind.
    6. gaucho - Carter and Boyd are great, it's grown to be catchy to me
    7. if only - like it better here than live, it's a little too slow to be fun live. I like what Boyd's playing at the end
    8. belly full - Dave doesn't usually play like this, so it's a nice change. Will be a good E1, or a good intro to something else
    9. rooftop - good, catchy, it will grow on me. Not big on the chorus
    10. belly belly nice - sounds like Shake Me version 2. I think I like it better though, chorus is nice
    11. mercy - Not bad, but I've never loved it. I was happy to put this last being that I don't hate it
    exactly mine

    If Only
    Belly Full
    Mercy
    Gaucho

    First Listen

    Snow Outside
    The Riff
    Drunken Soldier

    Belly Belly Nice
    If Only
    Rooftop
    Mercy
    Broken Things
    Gaucho

    Belly Full
    Sweet

    The middle group is not in order because I couldn't decide on the order. Belly Full is fine and Sweet starts awesomely but once the band comes in, I don't like it at all. The last 4 song run is just... wow... left a HUGE smile on my face.

    Broken Things
    Drunken Soldier
    Snow Outside
    Sweet
    Belly Belly Nice
    The Riff
    Rooftop
    Mercy
    If Only
    Gaucho
    Belly Full

    This album is all around fantastic

    1. Snow Outside
    2. Drunken Soldier
    3. Broken Things
    4. The Riff
    5. Mercy
    6. Belly Belly Nice
    7. Sweet
    8. Rooftop
    9. Belly Full
    10. If Only
    11. Gaucho

    This album is so good. I feel bad having to rank Belly Full, If Only, and Gaucho as the bottom three because these songs are great. The only song I'm having trouble with is Rooftop. Its a great song but for some reason I find myself skipping it often.

    I liked how the acoustic guitars in both channels were more prominent as it's a great riff.

    Results so far from the survey I created (see the signature). Have 41 responses. Overall the most liked songs, from first to last:

    Numbers in parentheses are the total of everyone's rankings together, so you can see how close some songs are.

    No surprise, but the two longest songs on the album were much preferred by Ants.

    1. Drunken Soldier (97)
    2. Snow Outside (129)
    3. Broken Things (146)
    4. The Riff (154)
    5. Belly Belly Nice (159)
    6. Sweet (190)
    7. Rooftop (211)
    8. If Only (220)
    9. Mercy (226)
    10. Gaucho (261)
    11. Belly Full (290)

    I might have to move Broken Things to #1 after the 2nd listen. Damn, that song is just so great.
