    Fantastic....
    Snow Outside
    Drunken Soldier
    Broken Things
    The Riff
    Sweet
    Belly Full (I just want to rant for a sec and mention how much better this song is than #40, because it actually is a finished song with words. Plus I like the melody better, wish it was longer)

    Great...
    If Only
    Rooftop

    Really Good...
    Mercy
    Gaucho
    Belly Belly Nice

    So far this is how I feel....probably 7 or 8 listens. Can't pick a favorite, but not a single song I'd skip.

    i was wrong. after six days and another thirty listens:

    1) mercy (0)
    2) drunken soldier (+6)
    3) belly belly nice (+3)
    4) rooftop (-2)
    5) gaucho (+2)
    6) broken things (-2)
    7) the riff (-4)
    8) sweet (-3)
    9) if only (+2)
    10) belly full (-1)
    11) snow outside (-1)

    i still don't get the fascination with "snow outside." it's not a bad song, but it's not one of the songs that sticks in my mind. in fact, when i'm not listening to it, i have a hard time recalling any of it from memory. maybe, one day, i'll finally get it.

    It's just insane how well produced Mercy is. I don't love it live, but it builds so well on the album.

    Gaucho and If Only still suck though.

    i absolutely agree. i think it may be one of the best recordings (not to be confused with songs) they've ever produced. it's got such gentle layering and an incredible build. i can't remember the last time i heard such a simple song have such a full sound. every note is right. every sound is right. everything about it is right. and i absolutely love the drum part. it's just another case of carter playing something no one else would even consider, but playing it in a way that it's the only way it should even be played. who else would have the sense or balls to play that badass hi-hat work so far in the background and place those tom and snare hits tastefully between the other instruments and vocals like that (1:18 through 1:26, for example)? i think he shines more on "mercy" than he does on almost any other song on the album. it reminds me quite a bit of his work on "pig" or "lover lay down," which are two other instances of him creating a quiet monster of a drum part around a fairly simple song.

    Based on how they sound live since I haven't heard the album:

    Snow Outside
    Belly Belly Nice
    If Only
    Rooftop
    The Riff
    Sweet
    Gaucho
    Mercy

    Mercy is a bottom 10 song for me.

    I'm about 40-50 listens in...

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

    Rooftop still hasn't grown on me much. Maybe it will over time.

    Three full listens in, will definitely be changing this up in the days, weeks, and years ahead.

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

    I either love or really like every song except Rooftop, but it will probably grow on me like nearly everything else in their catalog.

    By the way, I love that it's really hard to rank these songs. I could have easily switched spots with a lot of the songs and felt like I ranked some good songs way too low. Didn't have that problem with the last couple albums.
