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

    Ranking upon first listen through:

    1. Snow Outside = Simply heaven. Perfect lyrically and musically.
    2. Drunken Soldier = Amazing energy, powerful lyrics, and an all around awesome jam all the way through.
    3. Broken Things = Loved it to start the album. Enjoyed the lyrics. Dave's voice sounded different.
    4. Belly Belly Nice = Really dug this groove. A+ DMB song.
    5. Gaucho = I felt it fit perfectly at #4. Super unique sound for DMB and meaningful message. If we hadn't heard this before today, this would probably be my #2 or #3.
    6. Rooftop = Unique sound for DMB, but still fits. Great lyrics as well. Definitely a fun song.
    7. Sweet = The band sounds great on it.
    8. Mercy = We've heard it, but it's a great song IMO.
    9. If Only = A mellow, mellow tune.
    10. The Riff = I loved the first half, but then it went weak...
    11. Belly Full = Didn't get into it that much, but it's a nice little thing that could evolve as an E1 spot.

    After 3 listens through...

    1. Snow Outside / Gaucho

    2. The Riff / Drunken Soldier

    3. Broken Things / Rooftop

    4. Mercy / Belly Belly Nice

    5. Sweet / Belly Full

    6. If Only

    rooftop

    snow outside is the crown jewel of this album. and sweet is one of my favorite dmb songs of all time so of course its gonna be up there. i cant really decide on rooftop, its definitely a strange song. i cant help but think down the line i am not going to like it. its just too fresh right now to come up with a real opinion on it, so i put it at the bottom.

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

    11. Mercy- From the first time I heard this on Fallon I was underwhelmed with the Stand Up-ish lyrics, thank god for the bitchin UTTAD outro or this song would be lost. (7/10)
    10. Gaucho- Great instrumentals, lyrics are iffy at times but a solid tune. (7.5/10)
    9. Belly Full- Such a nice, lovely, good song. Very solid, I think it's something fresh. Just Dave's tone and everything in this song made me excited to hear this as E1. I LOVE FOLKY DAVE! (8.5/10)
    8. Sweet- I was there on July 8, 2011 at this song's birth. And to this day I love it just as much, especially when the full band kicks in. Goosebumps every damn time (8.9/10)
    7. If Only- A new DMB sound that I can really dig, translates great live and the groove is unreal. Fell in love when I first heard the tapes and get something new out of it each time. Keep more of this coming. (9/10)
    6. The Riff- This song is my bitch, so raw and awesome. It just works in every damn way, but I love it more live to be honest. (9.2/10)
    5. Drunken Solider- I was expecting too much from this song....and I was just barely underwhelmed, the outro and the amazing chorus did it for me though. I don't think it's a Last Stop or anything but it def. is awesome. Epic way to end this almost perfect album. (9.4/10)
    4. Broken Things- I feel bad for putting this so low, this is a nearly perfect song and maybe my mind will change but let it be known as soon as this came on I knew we were back in business (9.5/10)
    3. Belly Belly Full- I just can't believe that this song is still in my head, it's a beast live and translated great to the disc. Everything I wish SMLAM could have been. (9.7/10)
    2. Snow Outside- This is our LITHOG, our Say Goodbye, our return to Big 3 material. Such a great, great song and it will be a classic forever. (9.9/10)
    1. Rooftop- THIS GOD DAMN SONG IS UNREAL! THE CHORUS, THE BRIDGE, THE EPIC AWESOME SURPRISE, HOLY CRAP!!! THAT RIFF!! (10/10) I WANT YOU TO TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME!!

    Overall the album is at a 9.0/10.0 and rising!!

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

    Fave to less of a fave but still loved as much cuz this album is very hard to rank:

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


    *Weird how the songs they're not playing live are closer to the top for most of us (if you don't count Belly Full as one of the four remaining full band songs)...
    and I'm sorry, I will get flamed for this... while I LOVE the lyrics to The Riff, being probably Top 3 lyrics on AFTW, I just can't get into it live or on the album. Hopefully the Hollywood Bowl performance changes my mind a bit. And as for letting the jams breathe a little bit more, it is too short for sure on this song. I guess when it ends, I'm thinking "It's a helluva tune, but the ending leaves me wanting a lot more instead of just holding that note".

    Well those are my rankings, and trying to justify why I put The Riff closer to the bottom. And yes, Belly Belly Nice is at the top now after three listens. The little ditty from the sax and violin put the icing on the cake. When it first debuted live, watching it on Copperpot5 youtube channel, and Boyd comes in, I'm like "YUP!!! This is a fucking jam!"

    Weird enough, I remember people even initially disliking SQUIRM a lot when BW landed the way I'm not feeling "The Riff" right now.
    And more weird, I still love the hell out of Squirm. Squirm, Hands of God, and Baby Blue are my most consistent top three on that album the past few years. And then "Why I Am". =)

    Drunken Soldier needs to be cut and half and ended with Shotgun. Then I think I would of been happy. No need for the last 4 minutes of Drunken Soldier.

    11. Mercy- God bless that outro, wish I could rank it higher but I just can't. (7.2/10)
    10. Gaucho- This song is making a lot more sense inside the album, I wonder how much we would like this song if it hadn't been shown to us before hand? (7.7/10)
    9. Belly Full- Still lovin' this itty ditty. It works for me big time. (8.5/10)
    8. Sweet- Pretty stagnant still, good song. Nothing much else to say. (8.6/10)
    7. The Riff- Translates better to a live setting, I can't wait til I come around on the studio version, which I'm sure I will sometime soon. (8.8/10)
    6. If Only- This groove is hawt. (8.9/10)
    5. Belly Belly Nice- One of my favorite songs by them in the past 12 years, but dropped a bit due to the unreal realization of how awesome the next four songs are. (9/10)
    4. Broken Things- God bless Boyd, great starter. (9.2/10)
    3. Drunken Soldier- Un-freaking-real. It grows, you find new bits and pieces every damn time. (9.5/10)
    2. Rooftop- Dropped only because of Snow Outside. Still a 9.9/10
    1. Snow Outside- Sounds like it's straight off Crash. Beautiful song, beautiful lyrics. Grade A shit! (10/10)

    Album right now is still a 9/10. BTCS>>Crash>>UTTAD>>AFTW>>BS>>BW>>ED>>SU

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

    Drunken Soldier (great piece of music)
    Snow Outside (love everything about it)
    Broken Things (Great, like Old Stuff Great)
    If Only (good vibe... and english is not my first language, so I can easily pass on those kind of dumb lyrics "playing mister cool, baby")
    Sweet (don't know why, but this one brings me tears... In contrast, they could have end it with a bigger bang)

    Mercy (love the mellow progression)
    Belly Belly Nice (cool funky tune, but the "love" backing vocals in the chorus are distrurbing)
    Gaucho (Kill those kids already! And the bass distortion sound is awful)
    The Riff (love the end, but don't really like the melody right now)

    Rooftop (wtf is that sound? It's a Big Whiskey song with a great producer behind it... but it's a BW song anyway...)
    Belly Nice (I still don't know why this little thing is on the album)

    Not close to BTCS anyway, but it's a good step in a great direction.

    1. Belly Belly Nice - Once the catchiness factor wears off, I imagine this will drop, but right now i'm just diggin' it so much.
    2. Drunken Soldier - Awesome musically, but less impressive lyrically (another self-help/motivational song). Wish the intro took its time before getting to all the whammy crescendos.
    3. Sweet - Fantastic "little" song.
    4. If Only - Love the feel of this groove. Somehow vaguely reminds me of Sugar Will, only less awesome.
    5. Broken Things - Fun song. The verse-chorus contrast reminds me of FTT. Perfect as opening track.
    6. Snow Outside
    7. Mercy
    8. The Riff
    9. Rooftop
    10. Gaucho - Love the guitar riff, but I'm with others that the children's chorus just doesn't fit well.
    11. Belly Full - Quality "little" song.

    It is very hard to rank those; I feel like I'm short changing so many tracks!

    I only heard Mercy when I saw them this summer and I didn't download or listen to any other songs. I wasn't all that impressed with the album version of Belly Belly Nice, but I just watched it on Youtube. Its really good live. I can see why a lot of people like it.
